As mentioned above, choose a shoe that suits your child’s personality. Childhood is a critical time for development and while it might be tempting to put them in any old school shoe as long as it is black, think about in what kind of shoe they will feel most comfortable.


Whatever style you choose, the shoe needs to be able to withstand the everyday knocks and scuffs that happen as your youngster tears around the school playground. Kids go through an alarming number of school shoes simply due to the fact they are perpetually outgrowing them, so avoid having to buy more by investing in a sturdy pair that can withstand the rigours of a child’s daily life; from the classroom to the canteen, playground and PE field.


There’s nothing worse than a cranky child, right? So I am sure we all know the discomfort an ill-fitting pair of shoes can cause even the toughest of adults. Make sure that your back to school shoes not only look good but are comfortable to wear as well.


We know that it can be an expensive time for any parent when the kids go back to school, which is why all every single pair of school shoes in our kids' school shoe range is available, like all the shoes we sell, with a price match promise. If you find the same shoes cheaper anywhere else, we guarantee that we will beat it.
