How to Choose Stylish and Comfortable School Shoes for Your Son

Shopping for boys' school shoes can be quite an adventure! Parents and guardians must tackle this task multiple times a year, especially if their active children tend to wear out their academic footwear faster than you can say "recess." Whether it's rough movements, unpredictable weather, or growth spurts, there are plenty of reasons why finding the right pair of academic footwear is essential. 

Everflex understands the struggle and wants to make choosing stylish and comfortable academic footwear for your son as easy as possible. No more frantic moments or endless searching—with a guide in hand, you'll be ready to tackle the task confidently. Shopping for boys' school shoes at Everflex reassures parents and guardians that there is something for every student. From easy-wearing options to customisable fits, your son will find a pair that suits his taste and needs.

Let's make shopping for school shoes for your son an exciting task for everyone. This guide will transform your stressful shopping moments into a bonding experience you and your son will look forward to. Let the fun begin!


Step 1—Start with the Size


Ensuring boys' school shoes fit perfectly is crucial for your son's overall well-being and comfort. Let's start on the right foot—no pun intended—by accurately measuring your child's feet. Some parents and guardians do it, while others commission professionals such as podiatrists or trained in-store staff. These experts can provide valuable insights and recommend the ideal footwear based on your son's foot type. 

When measuring your child's feet, it's best to measure each foot separately and do it in the afternoon when your son's feet are at their maximum due to the day's activities. This timing ensures that you get the most accurate measurements.

It's a good idea to bring along the socks they'll be wearing with the footwear when trying them on to account for the thickness of the socks when finding the perfect fit. If you still haven't bought them, you can purchase Everflex socks before your child tries on the shoes. Additionally, leave a 1 cm gap between the tips of the longest toe and the front of the shoe for potential growth spurts. 

Once you have your child's measurements, you must ensure you have the accurate size for Everflex school shoes, as sizes can vary between brands. Your child may be a size 7 in another brand, but that doesn't guarantee the same size range in Everflex school shoes. If you know their size in the US, UK, or EU system, converting it to Everflex size is a breeze with the help of the handy size guide.


Step 2—Check for Spacious Toe Rooms


Once you know your child's accurate shoe size, the next step is to look for options. Find academic footwear that allows your child's toes to spread naturally, as this can impact their balance and stability. 

Everflex boys' school shoes provide ample room for their toes to move freely, ensuring they remain comfortable and focused during classroom activities and playground adventures. The spacious toe rooms enable your child to enjoy their day without distraction. Active young boys will love all boys' school shoes at Everflex because they come with round-toe shapes that offer the best fit and comfort. 

When trying various choices, ask your child to do the wiggle test; if they can comfortably wiggle their toes inside the footwear, it's a clear sign that you found the right one!


Step 3—Ensure a Secure and Customisable Fit


Ensuring your son enjoys his time in the classroom and playground means they should have school shoes that can cater to their changing needs. Their feet swell throughout the day, requiring adjustments for a perfect fit. Fastenings allow your child to loosen or tighten their academic footwear throughout the day. 

Everflex has two options depending on your child's skills: touch-fastening straps or laces. Younger students often find school shoes with touch-fastening straps more convenient, as they only need to press them together to secure the footwear. On the other hand, laces provide a more customisable fit. Although the second one requires a more advanced skill, your child can enjoy the perks once they learn how. Tying the laces of school shoes gives older students a sense of independence.

Beyond the convenience and customisation that fastenings provide, they also offer security and peace of mind. Fastenings enable your active child to engage in activities without worrying about their footwear accidentally coming off. Ensure a secure and adjustable fit so your child can stay cosy all day.
