Although it feels like the six weeks’ holidays have only just begun the kids will be back at school in a matter of days! We all know from the caked mud they bring back on their scuffed shoes (and those shirts that start off a crisp white!) that a pair of sturdy kid’s school shoes that will last are needed. Try selling a pair of shoes to a trend conscious child due to their durability however… The older they get the more they tend to opt for style over substance. We need more than just good quality shoes to keep this lot happy. Here are just a few of our favourite kid’s school shoes that will keep your child on trend whilst being foot friendly.
Admittedly, probably not the most mud friendly pair of kid’s school shoes, but believe it or not there are some parents who have children who don’t come home looking like they went digging in marshes during their lunch time. If you are one of the lucky ones we advise you check out Pretty Ballerinas. Stocking a range of glorious shoes that will take your child from the classroom to the after school party these are a well made beautiful pair of kid’s school shoes that will have your child feeling like they are the belle of the ball. Slightly costly a pair of ballerina pumps like these star ones will set you back around £79.00.

Young Soles acknowledge new trends and apply them to traditional style shoes. They just love the smell of natural materials over at the Young Soles HQ, they use the softest and most supple leather of the highest quality to make their linings meaning the shoes shape around each foot.

As you know we luuurve a bit of D&G kids and this pair of fringed beauties are top of our wish list. Definitely at the higher end of the price spectrum at an impressive £215.00, but you are paying for quality here. They will last as long as their foot size remains the same and of course, with the on trend fringing and silky red insoles these are not to be used just as kid’s school shoes but as party shoes also.
