Warranties

Manufacturers warranty covers all products. Any faulty items should be reported by email or by telephone to the Padders' Customer Services as soon as the fault occurs. The customer will be advised of the procedure for returning faulty products and a replacement, where applicable, will be delivered.

Hydrolysis

Please note that although PU is a hardwearing, durable and lightweight material, it is also biodegradable and will ‘break down’ over a long period of time.

This is hugely beneficial for the environment but can cause disappointment if a shoe is not worn, stored for a long period and then ‘breaks down’ when subsequently used.

Since 1997, we have used an additive called Staboxyl, which slows down the biodegradable process. Any Padders shoes manufactured before this date will not have this additive.

Colour transfer

We cannot guarantee that all of our products are entirely colourfast and therefore there maybe some colour loss experienced during wear.

Padders slippers

Padders' slippers are manufactured with hardwearing yet lightweight vulcanised rubber outsoles, designed specifically to be worn indoors. Wearing them outdoors, especially in damp conditions or ‘high traffic’ areas may cause damage to the outsoles or deposits of dirt to be picked up. As a result, the outsole could then cause marking on light surfaces.

You should also avoid walking on wet surfaces indoors as this could cause colour transference to other flooring.

All Padders' slippers have a disclaimer sticker attached to the lining which states the following:

'This product cannot be entirely colourfast; therefore some loss of colour may be experienced during wear.'

We cannot therefore be held responsible for any colour transference from the slippers to anything including carpet, flooring, furniture, upholstery or clothing.

Padders' reputation is based on over 100 years experience of quality shoemaking, coupled with a forward thinking strategy and considerable investment in technology and innovation. Padders have the concept of comfort so well sewn up that feelgoodfeet™ is our very own trademark. It's a word that sums up our unique approach to creating the ultimate in comfy footwear for men and women, with styles and materials based on exhaustive research into the physiology of feet. Using our own systems of design and manufacture, we've gone right back to basics to work out how shoes can be made lighter, more comfortably supportive and durable. Result - feet that feel good from dawn 'till dusk!

Most of our shoes have leather uppers, linings and cushioned leather insoles. They are made for maximum comfort with padded collars around the heel to perfectly support the foot. Most of Padders shoes are also adjustable, to facilitate easy access and ease of use. A wider fitting is made possible by removal of the footbed. This also allows orthosis to be added where required.

Here at Padders we offer a huge range of men's and ladies wide fitting, comfort leather footwear. A variety of lace up and touch and close casual walking shoes with leather uppers, linings and insoles. The soles are made from PU giving a hard wearing, lightweight sole.
