      Kids Designer Shoes Wholesale UK - Distributors of Children's Footwear

      Hi all,

      I'm looking for a distributor of designer kids shoes in the UK.

      As I'm new to all of this I would appreciate if anyone could help and point me in the right direction?

      Hi Rdg1194,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      You can source authentic children's designer shoes from one of the following three wholesale sources:
      • Brand or brand holder
      You can contact each brand directly to get more information about how you can become an official retailer, or how you can buy wholesale from their authorized distributors. Designer brands will supply you if your business fits their brand strategy. Many brands will want to see proof you own a brick and mortar store, alternatively that you have a strong marketing plan and the financial backing to support it. Even if you meet the brand's basic requirements, they may still refuse to supply you if your strategy clashes with the operations of one of their existing customers.
      • Wholesale liquidators
      Liquidators sell surplus, ex-catalog, clearance and bankrupt children's designer shoes sourced from:

      i. department stores as returns or overstocks,
      ii. auctions, and
      iii. from retailers that are about to or have filed for bankruptcy.

      In most cases, when you source from liquidators you won't be able to buy new season shoes, however it's a great avenue to get hold of authentic branded children's designer shoes without the limitations imposed by the brands. At the same time, you can test out the market without committing too much money. When you source from liquidators, make sure you know exactly what you are buying before you commit your money; in some cases, pallets and stock-lots are "Cherry picked" before they are re-palletized, which means that most of the good products get picked off the lots before they are resold to you.
      • Designer kids shoes retailers
      You should try approaching existing children's designer footwear retailers and offer to buy their overstocks and clearance stock. Most retailers are interested in turning stock around quickly, and due to the high margins they make on each sale they are often willing to clear old stock for new stock at a loss, just so that they can begin the cycle again. Bear in mind that most retailers already have a preferred liquidator. Ask them the retailers if they are interested in dealing with you direct, and offer them a price above what you think the liquidator is paying them for their overstocks. If the retailer still refuses, ask them if they can share with you the details of their wholesale liquidator. Also consider buying data relating to retailers who are struggling or about to file for bankruptcy, then offer to buy their stock before the stock has to be sold at auction.

      Have a look at the following UK liquidation suppliers of children's designer shoes:To find many more verified trade suppliers of children's designer shoes from the UK and the rest of the EU, try using the two largest UK online trade directories of verified wholesale suppliers eSources and Wholesale Deals. Both list thousands of verified wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop shippers.
