  • Shop is now temporarily closed but online operations continue

    In order to fully support the fight against COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close the shop until further notice. Our online shop will, however, continue to operate for as long as it is safe to do so.

    Whilst we will really miss helping you in person, we know it’s the right thing to do- we must all play our part.

    • We regret that all appointments for our Specialist Boot Fitting Service from now until 1st May will need to be postponed, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
    • If you’ve made an appointment after the 1st May - we will continue to actively monitor government advice on a daily basis & we will contact you if your appointment needs to be postponed.

    We will continue to respond to emails as soon as we can so please do get in touch if you have any questions.

    We would like to offer our sincere thanks to everyone for their support & we wish you all good health, mental & physical.

    We hope to see you again soon but in the meantime, take care of yourselves & each other.

  • Coronavirus: WW&D Update

    We would like to keep you updated on the status of Whalley Warm & Dry and our Specialist Boot Fitting Service in light of the Coronavirus but before we do, we would like to say we are thinking of you at this uncertain time & we wish you good health (mental & physical).


    Here's an update;


    • We are still open for business & accepting appointments for our Specialist Boot Fitting Service for those who are feeling well, however we are actively monitoring government advice on a daily basis & we will keep you updated.

     

    • We are taking measures to help keep both customers and staff as safe as we can, this includes the use of hand sanitiser between appointments.

     

    • If you have an existing appointment for a boot fitting please cancel if you are feeling unwell.

     

    • Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision not to accept any further re-soles/re-heels in order for us to streamline our operations in-store at this difficult time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. It will still be possible for you to arrange re-heeling & re-soling directly with either Altberg, Lancashire Sports Repairs or Cobbler John.

     

    • We hope for our online shop to continue to operate as normal.


    If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch - 01254 822220 or info@whalleywarmanddry.co.uk


    Take care of yourselves & each other.

  • Custom-Made Insoles Clinic now at Whalley Warm & Dry



    We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Foot & Insole Clinic at Whalley Warm & Dry - expertly fitted footwear & hand-built custom-made insoles all at one location for a seamless & stress-free experience! 

    The in-depth knowledge provided by our specially trained fitters combined with the comprehensive understanding of the biomechanics of the feet courtesy of The Foot & Insole Specialist is invaluable when finding footwear & insoles that work together perfectly to provide both comfort and support.

    Medical professionals including Doctors, Physiotherapists and Chiropodists regularly refer patients to see us for our ability to help people find properly fitting footwear and supportive insoles which can help alleviate the pain associated with medical conditions such as Morton’s Neuroma, Plantar fasciitis, Metatarsalgia, Arthritis and knee, hip and back problems.

    THE FOOT & INSOLE SPECIALIST

    Liz, Jon's daughter & who many of you will recognise from her years of boot fitting & work at the shop, has recently qualified as a Podiatrist. 

    Together with her husband, Liz has set up a second clinic for their family business, The Foot & Insole Specialist. 

    From this new clinic, Liz will be taking appointments for biomechanical assessments & hand-built custom-made insoles.

    The custom- made insoles are 100% tailored to your two individual feet, naturally supporting every contour of your foot, improving comfort, shock absorption, support, alignment and posture.

    To book an appointment for our Specialist Boot Fitting Service plus custom-made insoles, please call Katy on 01254 822 220

    For an appointment just for custom-made insoles, please call 01254 824982.

    It’s true Whalley Warm & Dry are moving to a new location! Don’t worry we’re not moving far, just around the corner in fact, and the shop is still very much open for business in its current location on King Street.

    We are all very excited about this next chapter for Whalley Warm & Dry!
