Changes Afoot | The Revamp

Dec 7th 2023

UPDATE 6th April 2024 - The Richmond store is now permanently closed and we are available at our Flagship Store in Ballarat.

So there are some BIG changes afoot...

Over the Christmas/Summer holidays, we will be re-vamping* both our Richmond and Ballarat stores.

The short story is, Richmond will become a satellite "Wootten Goods" store, showcasing a distilled collection of our Gordon/Charlie and Jack/Jill boots alongside our leathergoods and other locally made thingamajigs from our mates who are primarily based in the Central Highlands of Victoria.

So for those of you who are looking to try on our broad range of styles that we currently offer in Richmond, the next few weeks will be your last opportunity for a while. Otherwise it'll be a roadtrip to Ballarat next year!

We will be moving everything but Gordon/Charlie and our Jack/Jill boots to Ballarat. Keep an eye on the Fitting icon on the product thumbnail, which will detail where each style is available to try on. This will be updated for 2024.

There is a lot to see and do in our wonderful region and we are keen to focus our attention on all that the Central Highlands has to offer and throw our hat in the ring, so to speak.

The full "Wootten Heritage" experience that you've all come to know (and hopefully love) will still be available, just a few kilometers down the Western Highway at our flagship store in sunny Ballarat.

The two stores will separate more distinctly in the new year online, with the Wootten Richmond store becoming Wootten Goods, and the Wootten Ballarat store remaining as our Wootten Heritage page.

  • Did you know, the term re-vamping can be connected to the task of repairing/replacing the vamp of a shoe (thats the front bit that goes over your toes). Literally to re(place the) vamp... who knew!?
