Our Story




About Us

Ridgways shoes is a traditional family run shoe shop that offers an extensive range of footwear, clothing, bags and accessories for ladies, men and children. Established in 1820 Ridgways Shoes has had nearly 200 years experience in the footwear trade.


The Present 
                                                     
Over the years, Ridgways has continued to develop and grow as a company and now has two retail stores in Devon, one in Newton Abbot and another in Exeter which opened in 2011. We've also invested in our online presence and have recently updated our website.





Looking Forward

We now have a new shop situated in Exeter, Cathedral Yard. Here we carry a vast selection of ladies and men's shoes.

You will find all your well known brands such as Fitflop, Caprice, Loake, Barker, Ecco, Rieker, Merrell and Josef Siebel.


Where to find us

Our head office and main shop can be found in Newton Abbot, Bank Street. Here we stock a variety of ladies, men's and children's shoes and accessories.

Our children’s department has a huge collection of top quality brands including Start-Rite, Clarks, Geox and Converse. Our friendly, fully trained staff are always on hand to help.


Our Mission

We strive to host a diverse choice of affordable products for all ages and tastes along with superb customer service. We also specialise in the fitting of products. This service is prominent in all departments but most importantly in our children’s department. With a workforce that includes around 30 knowledgeable staff, Ridgways Shoes hosts a professional team, qualified and trained on the job ready to assist you. Our website is another new addition, which has now been running for over two years. Here we host a huge selection of what we offer to our customer’s in-store. Trying on and testing products, althoug the help of our fitters may not be the luxury you have whilst buying online we hope that with our size guide and product descriptions you can find the perfect product for you.
