Jingle Bells – Christmas Songs, Carols, The 12 Days of Christmas, Shoes and Spot the Movie References

Most of us have a favourite Christmas song or carol and equally one that can almost make you dislike the holiday season with a vengeance.  I have a real fondness for The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl and their ‘Fairytale of New York’, while for something traditionally Christmas for me it has to be a Christmas Carol, ‘Once in Royal David’s City’, after hearing children singing it in Durham Cathedral years ago. Although, kids driving you mad with their 1001st rendition of Jingle Bells is also pretty good. Especially when they... Read More

Spooky season at Scorpio Shoes

To all our customers, friends and Facebook followers

Some of you may have seen the vitriolic and abusive comments posted on Facebook reviews by an unhappy customer recently. We do try and keep all our customers happy but are realistic enough to realise that this will not always be possible when dealing with complaints. As a company, we do not have a blanket ‘one size fits all’ policy when dealing with complaints and prefer to treat customers as individuals and look at each complaint on its merits. In this instance the customer was offered a solution to his... Read More

Father’s Day Goodies!

In addition to dad, father’s day also celebrates close family members – husband, granddad, father-in-law, son, son-in-law, grandson, great-grandpa, uncle, brother and nephew, as well as godson, godfather and cousin or whoever else you can think of who is worth celebrating!. Many people might consider Father’s day to be ‘just another Hallmark holiday’ (many other brands are available!)… All of us here disagree because Father’s Day is more than a hallmark holiday – it’s a genuine reason to celebrate someone special. Father’s day this year is on Sunday 21st June in the United... Read More

Sun, sand and summer festivals

Summer festivals are all we can think about right now! A pair of rain and mud proof shoes is an essential item for a summer festival, along with sandals for when the sun decides to shine. Probably the biggest festival of the season, Glastonbury officially kicks off on Wednesday 24th June this year (meaning there are only 20 days to go!). Really… who needs an excuse for a new pair of shoes? British summertime is hardly renowned for its reliable weather, so here are a couple of our top picks for... Read More

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue – and new shoes too”

Although it may not be very noticeable at the minute, summer is on its way, which can only mean one thing – wedding season is in full flight! It’s wonderful to see how creative couples can be in the lead up to their special day. At Scorpio we’ve been discussing wedding traditions, old and new, traditional… and the downright strange. There are all sorts of wedding traditions and each family seems to have an alternative and exciting way of doing things. The phrase “something old, something new, something borrowed, something...

Not so much trains, planes and automobiles as boots, tattoos and the orient

The arrival of these two fabulous Japanese style tattoo print Dr Martens boots in our warehouse prompted all kinds of musing – once the oohs, aahs and “so that’s what I’m spending this week’s pay on” had subsided of course. It’s odd where a line of thought can take you.  Some of us older members of the team here (or seasoned and teaming with life experience as I like to call it) could remember songs with a Japanese theme to it like a Deep Purple number called WOMAN FROM TOKYO (1972)...
