/ time for new shoes - South-East retailer recommendations?

Hi all

I've been torturing my feet with a too-small pair of La Sportiva Mythos for a number of years now, and it's time to change.

I live in Brighton, and locally only have Snow+Rock and Cotswolds - both poorly stocked for shoes.

Any recommendations for well-stocked gear shops down this way? Would consider a day in London (or equivalent distance elsewhere) if that gets me more options.

Cheers
Roland

In London, you've good shops at Urban Rock at the Westway(westsish), The Castle (northish) and Rock On at Mile End (eastish)

Peglers has closed down, there was a thread on it recently in here.

Controversial maybe, but I found Go Outdoors had a good stock, particularly in larger sizes which I find a problem elsewhere.

In reply to Roland.Online: The wall in Brighton has pythons, Vs miuras, shamans and some others, might be worth a look before going to London. Snow and Rock will order anything in (for free/no obligation) that they stock which can be a good way of trying things on too.

hi LJC: by "the wall" do you mean the Rock Court or Boulder Brighton, or somewhere else altogether?

not heard of anything specifically called The Wall...

"Rock On at Craggy Island Guildford"

This is probably better stocked than most shops in london, they have about 30 different pairs of shoes.

I believe that they were talking about Boulder Brighton (in Portslade)

I would also be a plus one for checking out Craggy Island in Guildford,
