What Our Customers Say

Charl Swart of Takapuna Shoe Science assisted me in purchasing new walking shoes and sandals. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and gave me excellent service despite needing to deal with other customers as well. He made sure I was completely happy with my new footwear and did not rush me or pressure me into my purchases.

I left excited about my new footwear and so glad I went to this store. Will definitely come back to Shoe Science!


Just wanted to say, what a brilliant website, business and service. How fantastic is it that I can ring up Albany, speak to an amazing guy, Paul, who brings up my details from my last pair I bought in 2009 (!) and suits me to my new running shoes. The perfect service in my point of view. I live up in Russell and don't get down to Auckland much, so to be able to do this, is just fantastic. THANK YOU SO MUCH, A very happy customer!!

Sara Reid

I simply cannot praise the level of service and knowledge that I received today. Throughout the entire process Livvy kept the technical conversation at a level that I could easily understand and follow and also maintained her rapport by keeping the original non selling conversation rolling through the process too.


My physio suggested a visit to your store to get walking shoes to help correct my fallen instep. I am very impressed with the kind, caring and professional manner in which Sharon served me. It was no trouble to try several pairs to get the right one for me. Also I'd never come across videoing someone's walk to make sure all points of the foot were correct.

I would definitely recommend your store. Thank you again.
