Serena and Darian having been testing out their new Start-Rite school shoes in readiness for the big return to school in September.
After all this time off, choosing the right shoes is important, they need to be comfortable and smart, aswell as tough and long lasting with built in growing room…Start-Rite shoes ticks all these boxes. With lots of styles for girls and boys from reception to secondary school, in a full range of sizes and widths, the Start-Rite back to school range is sure to have something that both you and your child will love.
Darian is 9 and chose the Start-Rite Rhino Warrior Black Leather Boys Riptape School Shoes, they’re tough and built to last with a leather footbed and lightweight foot protection for all day comfort and a scuff resistant toe bumper to withstand the inevitable playground rough and tumble whilst still looking smart. Darian says they’re really comfy and easy to put on quickly with the riptape fastenings. I’m happy that he can still play and be a kid, without worrying about his shoes!
Serena is 14 and chose the Start-Rite Angry Angels Matilda black leather closed lace up school shoes, they’re teen approved on style – which is most important to them at this age. They are supportive, comfortable and designed to withstand all the walking they do at secondary school. They’re smart, grown up and stylish, and look lovely with her uniform.
In terms of sizing, the Start-Rite website offers lots of advice on finding the perfect fit and you can download and print their free sizing chart to measure your child’s feet in the comfort of your own home. If you don’t have a printer, just fill in their online form and the lovely people at Start-Rite will send you a sizing chart free of charge!
All Start-Rite children’s shoes have built in growing room to ensure a lasting comfortable fit – we managed to get the right fit first time using their current shoe sizes alongside the advice that Start-Rite shoes tend to run half a size smaller than Clarks shoes – for example, Darian currently wears a 2.5G so we went for a 3G, and they fit perfectly with growing room included.
