Tips for Back to School
Back to school is the busiest time for shoe shops. If you can, shop early to avoid the worst of the queues and to have more choice.
Make sure your child is wearing the type of socks that they will normally be wearing with their school shoes when you buy them. This will help ensure a good fit.
Measuring feet is only a guide.Our shop will always check the fit of both shoes on the feet. We will help you choose a shoe that gives stability and protection to feet, which are still soft and vulnerable.
An ideal shoe should be soft and flexible, with breathing leather uppers and a fully adjustable fastening for a snug fit. As we offer shoes in width fittings and half sizes our trained staff will be able to expertly fit them for you.
Less than a third of children are 'average' fitting so foot measurement and correct fitting are vital to a pair of feet.
Fitted shoes have growing room to ensure good fit throughout the life of the shoe. It's not necessary to buy a larger shoe than one which is fitted. In fact, shoes that are too big can do as much damage as shoes that are too small and they look scruffy much more quickly.
After a summer in trainers or sandals school shoes will feel strange. Encourage your child to wear their new shoes for an hour or two around the house before the school term commences.
On a normal school day a child wears shoes for around 10 hours and a little time to get used to new shoes before the first day of term is very helpful.
We offer a free fitting check at any time but would recommened for a school-age child this will be after 3-4 months and then as required until the shoes are outgrown.
