Open since 2005, Klodhoppers has established itself as one of the leading independent children’s shoe shops in the Sussex area.
Owned and operated by husband and wife team Kim Jackson and Mark Necus, the first store opened in Blatchington Road, Hove. The second store opened in Sussex Road, Haywards Heath in November 2007.

In March 2016 we moved our Hove store from Blatchington Road to Portland Road.
The striking orange and purple colour scheme and the relaxed child-friendly atmosphere combine to turn what can often be a stressful experience for both parent and child into a fun time for all the family.
There is something for everyone including crib shoes for new-born, first walking shoes, first school shoes, boots for the winter and sandals for the summer. Then there’s possibly the largest selection in both East and West Sussex of kids’ Converse, Vans and Crocs. That’s not forgetting ladies’ Birkenstocks, and Crocs in adult sizes. In the winter there’s always a comprehensive selection of snow boots as well as wellies from both Hunter and Joules.
The staff are fully-qualified professional fitters, and are trained to ensure that both the footwear and service offered to you is to the highest standard.
Kim is a Member of the Society of Shoe Fitters and was one of the finalists for the Society’s Student of the Year in 2011.
