Padders Number 1
Drapers is one of the leading fashion trade magazines and they speak to 50 independent retailers about their mainstream footwear business.
We are absolutely delighted that the independent footwear retailers rate us so highly and will endeavour to live up to these expectations.
Many of you will already be experiencing the onset of winter - high winds and snowfall are expected today.
If the forecasts are to be believed there is more to come and large retailers are stocking up with de-icer and snow shovels.
Make sure you don't get caught out in the cold this winter by ordering your snow boots and wellingtons now.

The ultimate slipper experience
As the nights draw in, and sadly they do, there is nothing more comforting than pulling on your favourite pair of slippers.
There are many opinions as to the best type of slippers, however something that nearly everyone agrees on is that slippers must be above everything, warm and comforting.
With super soft colourful uppers, vanilla fragranced outsoles and innovative memory foam insoles that shape to the contours of your feet for greater comfort; Padders slippers are pure foot therapy.
Padders have increased their slipper range this autumn adding a new range of ‘house’ shoes that not only look stylish but cater for the needs of a wider foot. This range is designed for all year round use so your feet won’t get too hot. So if you prefer a slipper that is ultra lightweight, unlined and on trend look no further than the new range at Padders.
Browse our Nancy and Nell ladies house shoes priced at just £20.00. With textile felt uppers, lining, insole and outsole, both styles come in EEE (Extra wide plus) fitting and two colours.
Noah and Nero – men’s house shoes priced at only £20.00 – have a textile felt upper, lining, insole and outsole and come in a Wide fitting G size.
We received this lovely message from one of our customers this week:
'I called the customer care line today and felt I had to write a message to say how hugely impressed I was with the person I spoke to. It is so unusual to speak to someone so knowledgeable about their product. The lady I spoke to was so polite and helpful - happy to answer my mundane questions, and generally cheerful. I have never written a message like this but I was so bowled over with the conversation I felt I had to! I hope it is not too patronising, and thank you. Debbie'.
Many thanks Debbie!

Battle of the bowls
Padders once again were delighted to sponsor the BCGBA (British Crown Green Bowling ) Padders feelgoodfeet Senior Individual Merit 2011 at Meole Brace Bowling Club in Shrewsbury on 30 July 2011.
All entrants qualify throughout the season to play in this prestigious event so the stakes are high. It was a hard fought competition and the worthy winner was Mike Riley from Wales.
Lucinda Merriman, Padders Marketing Manager attended for the first time this year and had a fantastic day. She said ‘I was expecting crown green bowling to be very similar to our local game - quite sedate and measured. However, this type of bowling couldn’t be more different. There are 4 pairs on the green at one time, bowling anywhere they like, which means there are bowls flying around everywhere and only extraordinary skill keeps things moving along at a cracking pace. I would recommend it to anyone for a great day out.’

Only 2 days to go!
Only 2 days to go 'till 'The Wedding' takes place.
Out and about yesterday, I saw lots of Union Jack bunting in the shops, giving a great sense of occasion and excitement.
It really does make you feel proud and part of something very British when you witness the huge enthusiasm towards this exciting event.
I know there are some people who won't have the same patriotic feeling but all I can say is - what a shame!
We hope you all have a fantastic day!
With the Royal Wedding just a week away, red, white and blue must be the order of the day and Padders have the footwear to fit this majestic occasion.
Step out in style at your street party with a pair of red stunning Sancha or take tea elegantly attired in a pair of white, wide fitting, Hepburn or simply sit in the garden and enjoy the sun, feet comfortable cosseted in a blue pair of Sultana

Get that feelgoodfeet feeling today!
There was a distinctly snowy feel to the Padders stand at the Moda Footwear and Fashion Show recently. Padders were presenting their autumn/winter 2011 collections to the trade.
Keen to give their customers something in keeping with this wintery theme, a call was made to Thomas Tunnock Ltd to order some Snowball confectionary.
Andrew Grindle, Account Manager for Tunnocks was more than helpful and offered to give Padders some for free. What a lovely man!
Needless to say, everyone loved them.
Padders were once again delighted to be voted 'Best Men's Brand' for the 5th year running at the IFRA awards dinner on Sunday 20 February at The Hilton Metropole Hotel, NEC Birmingham.
Padders were also nominated for the 'Best Ladies Brand', 'Best Customer Service' and 'Best Comfort Brand' categories.
