Monkeyshu in Aldridge, Walsall
Fast changing new stocks of quality shoes and boots for men, women and children sold at greatly reduced discounted prices direct to the public. Because stocks are sold and replaced very quickly it pays to visit to see what is on offer as none of these savings are published on any website, the stock is displayed for visitors to browse and choose at our premises in Aldridge.
Confused. The first time I visited a few months ago I was fairly impressed but my last visit just before Christmas was so disappointing. The majority of the stock was not only second hand but well worn, complete with mud in the tread of several pairs of boots! Disgusting. I think it should be made clear by Monkey Schu that the shoes and boots are actually second hand. The prices are fair for factory seconds or end of line but if I want pre worn footwear I would rather get it cheaper from a charity shop than from a for profit organisation making out that the products are seconds or end of line. I am embarrassed to have recommended monkey Schu to friends and family. Also disappointed that when someone commented in this on their Facebook page they received no response from the company.
Great shop, I have bought many shoes there and found them to be good quality for the extremely low prices. They have a very clear approach, shoes need to move fast and change often, and that's what they do. Which for us the customers means convenient prices and huge variety due to restocking. Very smart and very good place to buy your shoes!!
Recommended! This shop is saving my life :) For some reason my wife HAS TO buy a pair of shoes or boots at least once a month... Since she found monkey shu, she still keeps doing what she did (buying shoes), but at least she spends half of what she used to. So thank you monkey shu for your discounted shoes.
Thoroughly disappointed! Nowhere on the website does it say that these shoes are pre worn second hand!I Travelled almost an hour to have a look and all I found was scuffed boots with well worn soles and greying sheepskin. Great concept if thats what you want but I want discounted new boots. Misleading.
I don't get it, why are people so mad about this place? All I hear is my friends saying 'you have to go to Monkeyshu', 'I bought a pair of boots from Monkeyshu'... Well, I went and I have to say I was not impressed. True, prices are very cheap, but the quality for me is just not there.. I am not the type who screams for the Gucci, Armani, Yves Saint Laurent of the world, and I am completely fine with wearing non-branded clothes, but I couldn't find any shoes that I felt like buying. This is obviously just my opinion but I prefer to buy a pair of shoes instead of two, but a better one.
