treads school shoes

With many non-essential stores now opening, shopping is starting to become easier but the idea of taking my children into shops is still unappealing. You can’t expect kids to abide by social distancing, even if it is due to be reduced to one metre! That’s a big reason why buying school shoes isn’t as simple as it used to be.

Sorting out school shoes from the safety of your own home will remove a lot of that stress. No need to make appointments, no queues and no strangers breathing in your little ones face!

This week we’ve tried out online shoe retailer Treads.

Feet measuring

Treads have a great shoe size calculator to help you measure your kids’ feet from the comfort of your own home. Using either their kids foot gauge or their paper foot measure to find the right measurements. It’s all this additional value which Treads provide which I’ve loved.

Kid proof shoes!

If I had to think about the priorities when buying my son’s first school shoes, I would say, they need to be wipe clean, strong, scuff proof and water resistant. Treads Shoes deliver all of this!

Only leather

There is a huge selection of black leather shoes for boys and girls but with James due to start school in September, we decided to review ones with velcro fastenings so they’re nice and easy for him to get on and off by himself.

When I thought about buying my son school shoes, £45 physically pained me until I saw the 12-month indestructible guarantee!! I know I’ve said it many times before, but it’s true if you buy quality, you buy once – and this is exactly what I mean to be thrifty.

Dual fit technology

Simply try the shoe on as it comes out of the box and if it fits, great! If it doesn’t and you could do with a bit more room just remove the orange EVA foot bed to convert to the wider fit option.
