FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Where can I find help about....

We have lots of information available no matter what your question! Head to our specific information pages for anything you may want to know about Delivery, Returns, Gifting, Caring for your Shoes or Sizing. For anything else take a look at our FAQ's below, or get in touch through our Contact Form, or by email [email protected]



How can I care for my shoes?

All our soft soled leather baby shoes are made from genuine leather and like all leather products should never be put in the washing machine! We suggest spot cleaning them with a damp sponge or even a baby wipe. You can brush the suede soles with a suede brush which will get rid of any surface dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals on any of our leather shoes.

Can I change my order after I have placed it?

Where possible, we will do our best to accommodate any changes you would like to make to your order, whether that be a change of size, style or shipping address. Please get in touch with us as soon as possible using our Contact Form or emailing [email protected], making sure to include your order number along with full details of the changes you would like to be made. Unfortunately we are unable to add additional items to your order.

Please note: We are unable to make any changes if your order has already been processed.

I have received my order, but something is wrong with it. What should I do?

How do I apply my discount code?

A discount code can be applied at basket and throughout the checkout. Signing up to our newsletter is the easiest way to keep updated on our latest discount codes and special offers. Discount codes can’t be applied to sale items. Discount codes are only valid on specific products while stocks last and may be withdrawn at any time. They can usually only be used once and will not work in conjunction with any other discount codes or special offers. All discount codes exclude shipping and gift wrap options.

How do the shoes come presented?

All our soft soled leather baby shoes are delivered in an organza bag with a ribbon tie. They usually fit through the letter box and make an ideal gift. Our Shimmy Shoe range with rubber soles are delivered in a shoe box with a ribbon handle, or a reusable organza bag. All Dotty Fish products are shipped within the UK and Europe using a biodegradable paper mailing bag with our signature Dotty Fish Doodle on it.

Are Dotty Fish shoes approved by Podiatrists?

All Dotty Fish shoes are podiatry tested and approved. We have long believed in the benefits of soft soled shoes being the best choice in footwear, especially for those first few pairs of shoes in the early years. We worked with The London Podiatry Centre looking at the science behind our philosophy. They used a sophisticated 8-camera Vicon system as well as a Tekscan pressure mat to determine how a toddler walks with our shoes on and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. Natural normal foot function was not affected and in many instances gait and balance improved when wearing the soft soled leather shoes. You can find out more on our podiatry page.
