What the retailers had to say:

Andrew Marshall of Strolling4Shoes, Cumbria, commented:
“June has again been a great month. Because we staggered our deliveries, we have had plenty of lower priced product at the right time of the season and it has really worked. Earth Spirit has been by far and away the star of the season now selling more than any other brand and showing a very healthy margin . Skechers and Rieker have performed really well. We are just starting to get Autumn stock delivered and amazingly we selling it especially the lighter weight Tamaris and Josef Seibel Clogs.”
