The Dos and Don’ts of School Shoe Shopping!

Is it your first time shopping for school shoes? Perhaps you need a refresher on the ins-and-outs of selecting the perfect style for your little student. Well, don’t worry, because Everflex is here to help you out. We’ve been supplying students with the most affordable (and durable) school shoes for years and years, so we know a thing or two about what our customers need from their styles.

We also appreciate that buying uniforms, books, stationery, and all sorts of other pieces for your kids can be stressful for parents, particularly if they’re on a budget. So, today we’re going to go through the dos and don’ts of shopping for school shoes, and how you can avoid making it a stressful and time-consuming experience.  


Do: consider buying online!

Anyone who finds pre-semester crowds annoying or intimidating should consider shopping for Everflex’s school shoes online. For a start, you can skip the slow queues, tides of frazzled parents, and the in-store time constraints. When you buy school shoes online, you’re free to browse at your own pace and when it’s convenient for you, instead of trying to slot in time during your busy schedule. Also, ordering from the comfort of your couch is way less stressful than in a store. 


Don’t: get the first school shoes you see! 

Admittedly, there is some wiggle room on this one— if you search through our collection and your child’s ideal school shoes were at the top of the list, then, by all means, buy them. But the point we’re trying to make here is that you should take the time and look through our collection carefully. 

Along with our conventional school shoes, we have several Mary-Jane sandals and similar alternative designs, which your child might find appealing. So, instead of scrolling through at lightning-fast speeds, slow down and weigh up your options properly.  After all, if you’re shopping for school shoes online as we recommended, then you can take as much time as you need! 


Don’t: forget to check the size!

Are you unsure of what size your child needs for their new school shoes? We understand that figuring out which pair is suitable for your child can be difficult to gauge (especially after a growth spurt), so we provide a size guide for your convenience. You can compare Everflex measurements with UK, EU, and US ones, and the extra information we offer in each section should help you find your way to the best fit easily.

Once your child’s school shoes get delivered home, get them to try them on immediately. Get your child to put on their uniform socks, tie or fasten them up comfortably, and then stand up. Press down on the top of their school shoes and ensure that there is a least one centimetre of space between their longest toe and the end. Afterwards, have them walk around and check that their pair isn’t slipping as they walk or getting uncomfortably tight in any places. If there are any size issues with the new school shoes, you can easily exchange them for a smaller or larger pair. 


Do: grab some care accessories! 

One of the easiest ways to ensure school shoes to last as long as they can, is to keep them in good condition. Here at Everflex, we have spare sets of shoelaces, specialized cleaning sponges, and items like innersoles that will keep your child’s pair in premium condition. So, instead of ditching dirty school shoes that still fit, you can save your money and use our accessories to keep them in working order! It’s really easy!
