As back to school footwear is firmly on the minds of parents at this time of year, the website offers a dedicated section of ‘S’cool Shoes’ pitched as the ultimate solution for parents tired of constantly replacing their children’s school shoes.

We selected the Astros, a quintessential T-Bar style shoe that has earned the seal of approval from podiatrists. With its child-friendly design and innovative features, the beauty of these shoes lies in its attention to both comfort and style.
With its adjustable strap, these shoes guarantee a secure and snug fit, accommodating the specific requirements of growing feet. The memory-foam style inner material further enhances their adaptability, making them suitable for both narrow and wider feet as they mould to the unique contours of each foot. The leather padded collar and insole add a touch of charm, ensuring abundant comfort and reliable support for young learners as they embark on their daily adventures.
These shoes boast comfort and durability, featuring podiatrist-approved grippy soles that offer reliable support for young feet. And of course, they feature the innovative soles that remove meaning they’ll see you at least the year through and quite possibly longer-term making them great to pass to others.
Their rubber outer appearance exudes elegance and sophistication, setting them apart from the traditional patent and leather-look designs commonly seen on children’s feet. Not only do they impress with their style, but their durability and easy-to-clean nature are also great features, making them a practical and long-lasting choice.
