Bought in good faith but sizing completely wrong, mens size 8 was only very slightly large on my ladies size 6 foot. Robbed of £2.50 to return something that I would have happily kept if the size ordered had been the size supplied. Beware.

Dreadful customer service, inaccurate website, no communication and no present for my wife’s birthday.
Will never use this useless company ever again. Shocking

I ordered a pair of shoes 8 weeks ago. When they arrived, they were the wrong size so I requested a returns label and the courier collected the package the following day.

Confirmation from the courier and the tracking link provided confirm that the shoes have arrived in the Jones warehouse, however, they cannot find the shoes and therefore will not refund my money. Apparently, despite everyone saying that the package returned safely, it is my problem to find the shoes before a refund will be processed!!

Bought leather boots on 24/1/2020. On 30/1/2020 completely ruined because they let in rain. Absolute chancers. Avoid overpriced rubbish at all costs

Rubbish quality! Completely overpriced! I thought they were good shoes, so I bought 2 pairs: boots for outside and stiletto heels for work(only wore them inside the office). The boots’ sole broke within the first month of purchase and the colour of the stilettos started to fade after 3 months(they are navy suede-like material) and now the material started to peel off the heel. I could not believe it! Will never purchase from them again.

Wasted £170, shoe sole got completely torned within 1 year of purchase. No responsibility taken from store manager and asked to pay for the mending.

I called up customer services because nobody answers their phones in any of the stores. I wanted to return some shoe trees because the side spring wasn't smooth enough and in effect it was stretching the shoe which i didnt want. The woman in customer services told me so long as i had the receipt it was ok to return. so i spend over an hour getting to the Holbourn branch and the manager woman seemed reluctant to give me a refund. She asked if i wanted a replacement, i told her i found a better pear else where (maybe i shouldnt have said this), she then asked for the receipt which i produced, the card i paid with, which i also produced and then she told me to wait while she call the customer services as she was not sure weather they were returnable. she returns after some time and told me i could not get a refund only a replacement. she bought a replacement with her and the spring on that was also poor. i called customer services again the the person behind the phone didn't want to continue the conversation, she admitted she told me that it could be returned but did not appologise or seem sorry at all, and she the told me she had to put the phone down due to the language i was using??????? so i asked her what language because i know i didn't swear at all or use any foul language. She told me she could not repeat what i supposedly said as it was a bad word ( or something).
would not go here again, when you go to buy a product they try very hard to upsell all sorts of things you dont really want, and then when you want a refund for a faulty product they don't want to do it.
they also mislead and lie.

On 6 Aug I ordered some sandals which were in the sale.They
should have arrived within 5 days. On 8 Aug I had a call to say they had to be sourced from a store so would be 7 days. So far no problem. On 19 Aug I contacted the helpdesk as they hadn't arrived. Apparently they had 'gone missing' between the store and the warehouse and no-one had picked up on this as Jones don't bother to make sure orders have been dispatched, which seems incredibly inefficient. The person to whom I spoke said she would try and source another pair. By the time I chased the order the price had been further reduced so I suggested that I should be refunded the difference on the basis that I was effectively re-ordering - this was agreed. I asked that I be sent an email letting me know whether another pair had been found. Shortly afterwards I was notified that another pair had been found and would be with me in 5-7 working days. I emailed back to ask for confirmation of the refund. I got an automatic response saying that someone would respond 'as soon as possible'. On Tues 27 Aug the sandals arrived. Since I had had no response to my email and no refund I
emailed the helpdesk again. I got a response this time. The refund was issued which was good, but the helpdesk said they hadn't received my original email, which was clearly untrue as I had the automatic response - perhaps they don't realise this happens. Someone really needs to get a grip on both the dispatch process and the helpdesk.

Bought a pair of shoes a month ago I after first use the hill was badly damaged. Very bad quality
Bad experience in the store. Too many lies.
I had better experience when I tried to make a complaint in the web site. In that case I was ignored after my last email.

Bought a pair of office shoes less than 2 months ago. First bit of significant rain this year and water seeped through the rubber sole. Went back to the store to ask what their policy was on this and I was told Jones don't guarantee against any water ingress, that the issue I experienced was to be expected as my shoe was leather with a rubber sole...!!!! I was then shown a brick of a shoe and told that I should have bought that instead of the shoe I did buy...

In effect I was told to EXPECT "poor quality".

I have since tried emailed their customer service department and had a non deliverable email... at least they're consistent across the business.

Appaling quality! They appear to be an upmarket luxury shoe brand but are really the opposite. I thought they were at a similar level to Loakes and Barkers and it didn't take long and the shoes fell to bits! Never buying again!

Service fine, quality appalling. they portray themselves as a high-quality shoe brand, however, my pair have fallen to pieces! Very very disappointed! Never buying again!

Staff were supportive and helpful but let down by the quality of the product.

I ordered a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for my granddaughter. I ordered a UK size 10 as that was the sizing on the website. A UK size 10 is a European size 28. When they arrived (great delivery service, no complaints) I discovered I had been sent a size 29 which obviously were far too big for said granddaughter. I contacted customer services. Their reply was that a size 29 in Lelli Kelly sizing was a UK size 10. This is nonsense. I then forwarded to customer services the sizing straight from the Lelli Kelly website which clearly stated that their size 28 was a UK size 10. I received no reply. By this time, however, the shoes were out of stock and granddaughter had to go on holiday without her Lelli Kellies! Not happy! I was given a full refund by Jones the Bootmaker -again no complaints - but I was disappointed that I did not receive a reply to my second email. Hopefully from now on they will make it clear to customers exactly what UK size they are ordering when it comes to Lelli Kellies.

I bought my son's shoes for £42 on 31/08/14 and 3 months down the line the stitching on both shoes come undone. I went back with the receipt to give them back to be advised that no refund or exchange will be given. The shoes were expensive. I don't expect shoes to last 3 months. Very disappointed. Customer service in the shop was just terrible !!
