What to prioritise when choosing school shoes on a budget

There are two main factors you should prioritise when choosing school shoes on a budget. These are durability and comfort.

Whether your kids are running around on the playground or playing on the field, their shoes need to be durable enough to withstand a range of different activities. Choosing a high quality pair of shoes will ensure they last longer and see them through the school year.

Kids spend a lot of time in their school shoes, which is why it is so important they have a pair of shoes that will keep their feet comfortable and pain free all day.
