Who you need to know Owner Sarah Taylor

Brands include Audley, Gia, Ilse Jacobsen, Italca, J Shoes

Since Shoes at Last opened nine years ago, the Surbiton footwear indie has enjoyed sales growth of between 10% and 20% each year.

Owner Sarah Taylor cherry picks commercial and niche brands to sell in the boutique, and has been building her clothing offer in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience.

In addition to top-notch service, Shoes at Last boasts some unique features: movement sensors outside the store cause its main lights to turn on when people approach, and the owner can sometimes be found sitting down with customers having a chat over a cup of tea. Taylor has caught the attention of Surbiton’s locals and beyond.
