7 Practical Tips for Buying Girls School Shoes

As a mother of three girls aged 8, 6 and 2, I know how difficult it can be to choose the right girls school shoes that keep everyone happy. The shoes you choose need to meet all the criteria that you as a mother would want such as durability, cost and function. At the same time they must appeal to your daughter’s sensibilities and what they believe is the ‘in thing’ at school if she is going to wear them willingly! If this pressure of buying the ‘right’ footwear were not enough you are then faced with the prospect of actually having to find and buy the shoes in the shops Hurtownia Odzieży. This can mean having to trek through shops to buy school shoes just as every other mother seems to be out doing the same for their precious daughter!

All too often the whole episode is a stressful experience fraught with potential arguments, re-opened family disputes and hours spent feverishly parading around the busy shopping malls or high street with a stroppy daughter on tow! So as a mother and footwear expert I’ve come up with a few tips which will hopefully make your shopping experience a whole lot easier!!

Many schools have restrictions on the colour and sometimes the style of shoes which are acceptable so please check with the school before you do anything else! 

Girls will wear their school shoes for far longer periods than any of their other shoes – usually around 8 hours a day, five days a week. It is therefore really important that they fit correctly, not just for comfort but from the point of view of foot health now and later in adulthood.

Note: being measured and fitted is not just for Primary School children. Did you know that none of the bones in a child’s foot are fully developed until they are 18 years old? Up until then the majority of your daughter’s foot is made up of cartilage so ill-fitting school shoes can do permanent damage to their feet which in turn could cause major foot and back problems later in life. So, having their feet correctly measured by a trained shoe professional and then having their shoes fitted can make all the difference. Of course buying well-made shoes with adequate support should be your objective and will help prevent problems now and in the future. Your trained shoe professional should be able to advise you here.
