Petasil creates stylish, fashionable footwear whilst ensuring that children’s footcare is at the forefront. Because we believe that growing feet need protection and comfort, we also hold the same values. This is why we are delighted to be able to have Petasil’s footwear in our shop.

At Precious Soles, we can fit your child using traditional shoe-fitting practices. Book your free fitting appointment, or keep reading to find out more about Petasil and our shop.

The benefits.

Why we stock Petasil at our shop.

Supportive footwear.

Just as important as the look, the support that footwear can provide is vital to your child’s foot health. With manufacturing principles such strong heel counters and midfoot stabilisation, your child will be comfortable throughout the day.

Classic styles.

As many modern styles as there are, we love the fact that Petasil still produces classic styles that simply work for everyday wear; especially for school shoes.

Multiple width fittings.

Petasil footwear comes in a range of width fittings, and while we may not stock all of the widths, we have the main selection (E, F, and G), so we can accommodate for the majority of foot types.

Shoe-fitting and in-house clinics.

Children’s feet are constantly changing as they grow, so it’s important that you get a reliable measurement and expert advice. This is what our fitting service is about. 

You have a dedicated, trained fitter who will listen to your needs and wants. They will discuss with you any foot, lower limb, and back issues that need to be considered. Further consideration is given to any medical information from a medical professional, prescription, orthotics, or splints.

We assess your child’s walking and their gait, and then measure their overall foot length, their heel to ball and their width, while considering their foot type, toe length, and instep height.

Our in-house clinic can also help children with more specific needs. Jill Ferrari runs regular clinics specialising in biomechanics and children’s foot and lower limb issues.
