We just love measuring and fitting a pair of new shoes. In fact, as you can see Nadia just loves the shoes too much.
Please see our top tips to get the most from your shoes and comfort for your child on those first few days (it will break Nadia's heart if you don't!)....
Tip 1: Wear new school shoes a few times at home. We can exchange if not worn outside. Please look for marks on feet or any signs of discomfort.
Tip 2 Wearing-in shoes before next week helps feet adjust to structured shoes with arch support as your kids have spent the last few weeks in sandals, flip flops or may be bare feet.
Tip 3: Some styles have no padding around the heel/ankle collar & may need softening. You may also need to massage thicker/more solid parts of the shoe especially if your child has sensitive feet.
Tip 4: Encourage your children to wear the correct shoes for the right activity - respect the leather - its a natural product that has no chance against the likes of concrete.
Tip 5 : Want shoes to last? Polish using a wax shoe polish to nourish and hydrate the leather before you wear, spray for good measure to prevent watermarks & keep them looking good! A good wax polish helps to keep out water and polish at least weekly.
PLEASE - Wear your shoes at home BEFORE you go to school, if you are not sure, then please DO NOT wear them out - come in & get them checked.

We Are Back to School Ready
We have a great selection across all sizes and widths with some great new designs from our core brands too.
Don't forget we are proud to be members of the Society of ShoeFitters so we take the measuring and fitting of your child's shoes very seriously.
For one week only, enjoy 10% OFF school shoes
Just lace Zubits magnets onto your own shoelaces. When separated, you can easily slip into a wide open shoe. Close the magnets with a click and go for a run or play sports.
Quickly take your shoes off hands-free by stepping on your heel to pop out.
NO LACES COMING UNDONE.
Buy Zubits closures once and re-use them on all your new shoes! The magnets never lose strength so you never have to tie laces again.
GREAT FOR EVERYONE.
Suitable for all ages and not only great for people in a hurry but ideal for those with additional needs or children who have not mastered tying laces.
Zubits magnetic closures are uniquely engineered to be incredibly strong for their size.
Just remember that even when your regular shoelaces are double-knotted, you can still step on your heel and squeeze out of your shoes because this action generates a lot of force.
These forces are not present when you run, which is why your shoes stay on.
In the same way, Zubits™ are strong enough to hold your shoe secure while running and jumping, but they will split open when you step on your heel because that generates a lot of force.
Furthermore, Zubits™ come in three strengths to match your size and intended use
Recommended for kids ages 5 to 8 years or adults who will use them for walks or going to the store and not athletically. If the child is highly active or large then consider size #2.
This is also great for those with special needs.
Recommended for ages 8 to male/female adults for lightweight use such as jogging or recreational activity.
If you are a large adult or want to use Zubits™ for more active sports, consider size #3.
Recommended for adults in recreational sports, larger or stiffer shoes, or anyone who wants the most secure hold for active use.
We have had some great welly deliveries this week and some colours that will brighten the wettest of days!
Brands delivered this week are Start-rite, Toughees & Demar to add to our existing styles
