How to choose school shoes that will last

There are a few different qualities you should look for when you’re trying to find a pair of school shoes that will last:

  • Durability - School shoes need to keep up the demands of your child's daily activities, from walking to and from school to playing outside at dinner time. Investing in a durable pair of shoes will ensure they last longer and will withstand the wear and tear of the school year.

  • Comfort - Comfort is one of the most important qualities you should look for in a pair of school shoes. Your kids will be wearing them 5 days a week for nearly 8 hours a day, so it’s important their shoes don’t cause any discomfort.

  • Strong materials - Leather and patent are generally considered the most suitable materials for school shoes. These types of materials offer support and protection, while also providing the smart finish that many school shoes require.
