Our gorgeous customers receive top quality shoes, clothes
memorabilia & other items at affordable prices…
There's a world of difference between “cost” & “value” & it's been
said “quality is remembered” long after “price is forgotten”...
At gorgeous, our prices are not “cheap”, but they're also not
“expensive” - however, they're certainly value for money...
What we do offer is a great combination of top quality, guaranteed
products at prices that “don't cost the earth”...
And it's no accident that over 80% of our business is from
previous customers, referrals & recommendations…
We can also send you a Price List in your own currency...

The gorgeous range of Rock 'n' Roll, Swing, Rockabilly, Jive,
Ceroc, Leroc, Boogie Woogie, Bodgie and Widgie
& Hotrod dance and street shoes...

STYLES & COLOURS
Over 150 styles to choose from - plus, your own choice of shoe colours,
you have access to the most comprehensive selection of quality
two-tone dance & street shoes anywhere in the world...
And, if your  colours preferences are not shown or displayed here,
then please ask us - we may still possibly be able to help you...
AVAILABILITY
If you multiply 150 plus styles by the possible colour combinations,
it equates to well in excess of 50,000 individual possibilities...
And if you then multiply these possibilities by the different sizes
we have available - then we're talking "telephone numbers"...
'gorgeous' can't logistically (or financially) afford to carry such
a huge stock holding, although we invariably carry a good
inventory of the "most-ordered" styles & colours...
DELIVERY
It can sometimes take up to 4 - 6 weeks for your shoes to be made
in non-stock styles/colours - although usually sooner than that...
that's the bad news out of the way...
The good news is the shoes are fabulous in both style & quality
& you'll soon discover that they're "worth the wait"...
WEARABILITY
All the 'gorgeous' shoes are also suitable for outdoors wear...
If you want to carry them in a little bag to dances, then that's
quite OK - but you don't have to, if you don't want to...
SHOE SIZES
All sizes for the 'gorgeous' shoes range are shown in BLACK...
Refer to the "shoes conversion chart" below for your local sizes...

Please Note:     because "bleyer", "alexi" & "rockabillity" are different
manufacturers, not all colours are available from each of the suppliers


SHOE SIZES
Although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, the following
conversion charts can only be used as a general guide...
Shoes are just like clothes in that differing manufacturers, styles, designs,
etc., can sometimes result in a variance in fittings...
Additionally, interpretations in the various so-called 'standard' sizes for
each Country means that 100% accuracy is effectively unattainable...
We suggest a half-size 'larger' is usually your best option if unsure - & if there
is any 'slack', this can usually be corrected with a quality inner sole...
Finally - we are very well experienced in gauging correct sizes from the
information that we will ask you to send…
In over 10 years of gorgeous business, we've only got it wrong three times,
naturally we exchanged the shoes each time for the correct fittings…
(Although with "Murphy's Law" being alive & well, we're probably overdue for it to happen again)

PLEASE NOTE:    Size Conversion charts can only be used as a general guide.
Shoes are similar to clothes in that differing manufacturing, styles, designs, interpretations,  
can often result in variations in so-called 'standard' sizes in each country or zone.
A half-size larger is usually the best option, then if there is any 'slack', this can
usually be corrected with a quality inner sole such as the “Bleyer” insole.




GORGEOUS SHOE SIZE GUARANTEE

correct - the FIRST time, EVERY time

gorgeous Gift Vouchers

Almost everbody has Gift Vouchers - but they can be so "boring"
Yes, the "thought" is there, & you'd like to give the receiver
some "choice" - however, they can often seem like:
" I couldn't think of anything else to give you, so this will do"
Which of course, defeats the whole purpose of your gift
Wouldn't it be great if you could still give someone "choice",
without losing that all important "personal touch"
Well - now you can
gorgeous offers Gift Vouchers which can be designed to your
requirements - & which can also be "personalized" with
photos of the recipient - & that's a worldwide first
gorgeous Gift Vouchers are a "gorgeous innovation", & they're
available in ANY currency & can be used from ANY Country
They can obviously be emailed to ANYWHERE in the world
