The philosophy behind the success of the store has been to stock brands that not only have great styling and cater for most foot shapes but,
most importantly, are comfortable.

Collins Footwear began in Hamilton East in 1982 when Grant and Ann Collins purchased an established business that had at that time been on the same site for at least 67 years. In 1992 the store moved one site up the road to where it is today.

Most styles are available in sizes US 6 to US 10 (36 to 42) for women and other sizes can be obtained. Men’s UK 8 to UK 12 (42 to 47) are in stock with other sizes available. A range of width fittings are also available in both womens and mens shoes.

With our customers in mind Grant and the team put a collection of shoes together each season that offer versatility, great fitting, comfort and the best shoes for our customers needs.


All our staff are trained in correctly fitting shoes and will extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our store.


Rieker, Ecco, Steplite, Propét, Skechers, Josef Seibel, Slatters, Mckinlays, Florsheims, Hush Puppies , Julius Marlow, Mi Woollies, and Grosby are some of the huge variety of brands available in store.


We also carry a wide selection of quality polishes, laces, dyes, insoles and also offer good advice on shoe care.


For good old fashioned service before and after the sale, call in and visit us at the little shoe store with the big reputation , UNDER THE BIG ORANGE BOOT  Grey St Hamilton East .
