We have compiled a few tips and tricks about the comfort vs style debate regarding school shoes. 


This could ensure to make your shoe's life slightly longer. Have a look below at our helpful advice before your close checkout, and you’ll be choosing your kids’ footwear with ease in no time! 


Here’s a Quick Debrief on What It Means to Have Comfortable School Shoes!


Comfort is a necessary factor when it comes to choosing your kids’ school shoes. They’re running around all day for six hours straight, so comfort would be the first key factor to consider (and we know parents don’t want their children coming home with blisters and sore feet). 


So, to avoid all the problematic situations, it’s a great idea to choose comfortable footwear. One style that provides the ultimate comfort is our lace-up design. This style of footwear offers a secure lace-up design with a sturdy rounded toe and durable tread.


It’s super easy to find these classic kids lace-up school shoes in our wide range, ensuring there’s a pair of footwear that can suit your child’s style. In addition, our lace-up school shoes are a unisex range so your kids can look sharp and shiny all day long while they study and play. 


Our touch-fastening range will be their next best friend for those who enjoy a quick and easy school shoe to wear. 


From the textbook to the playground, your child will feel safe and secure all day long with their touch-fastening footwear. Touch-fastening offers some great benefits and is suitable for those in a rush or who hate the hassle of tying up laces. 


This style of school shoe offers ease, comfort and durability for even the most active of kids. Parents, you also won’t have to worry about your kids, especially for gender boys losing their school shoes whilst out in the play yard or going to the store to buy treats, as these touch-fastening footwear styles are always secured and strapped up. 


Finally, our touch-fastening school shoes won’t cramp their style if your kids are more on the stylish side of things. The touch-fastening school shoes offer a unique look that will have your child starting a new fashion trend! 


Does your child need extra support with their school shoes?


There is still some room for discomfort to creep in with comfortable school shoes, but there is no need to stress. We’ve got all the tools needed to ensure your kids' feet are feeling great all day long. If the base of your child’s pair of school shoes is becoming uncomfortable, why not add some gel innersoles to the team? 


Gel innersoles provide extra cushioning for the foot, which reduces the stress on joints and absorbs shock. This is great for kids who enjoy an active day whilst learning. Our gel innersoles also offer built-in arch support, so your kids' feet will be feeling a thousand times better for the day. 


Finding additional comfort is also sourced through the right pair of socks and laces for those lace-up school shoes. Look at your favourite fusion brands or menu shop accessories for these items. Socks are a feature we tend to forget about when it comes to kids' footwear, although they are necessary for achieving the ultimate comfort level. 


Shin-high socks are a great choice of style as they remain high on the leg, meaning your child won’t have to worry about their socks falling or having to readjust them throughout the day. If your children prefer wearing an ankle-cut style of the sock with their school shoes, then we’ve got that option too! Ankle socks are easy to wear and offer a discreet look so your kids’ socks can blend right in with their school shoes. 


Don’t forget it is imperative to have a range of spare laces tucked away in the cupboard for the occasional mishap where new laces are needed asap. After a long day of study and play, your children’s lace-ups might find themselves with a bit of wear and tear. Backup laces are a must-have to keep your kid’s school shoes decked out in comfort and style. 


If a style is more your thing, then we have the perfect shoes for your little ones!


Now the question on everyone’s mind is whether comfort or style is better for your kid’s choice of school shoes. Well, here are some hot tips on choosing stylish school shoes for your child. First and foremost, stylish school shoes mean your child will be making a fashion statement all day long.
