I think this is the shortest summer holiday little T has ever had and I can’t believe that she’ll be back in school next month. I’m panicking a bit because there are still some activities I want to do with her. We haven’t even gone camping yet, or learned how to ride the bike without stabilizers, or learned the “You are my sunshine” song in the ukulele yet.
And yes, I do know the summer holiday will end soon. In fact, in spite the panic, we’re actually ready for it. She already has new uniforms in time for next month and also has a pair of new school shoes courtesy of Start-rite. We got little T’s first ever pair of shoes from them. My husband was very particular about this. He didn’t want to just buy just any pair of shoe from the shops. He wanted her properly fitted and booted. Yes, T and has a history with this particular shoe brand and we trust it.
For this year, T chose a classic Mary Janes style for her school-shoes. If you’ve been following our little blog for some time now, you will know that my daughter is very sporty and just like any other six, going seven-year-old, she loves to skip and run around like a loony.
What we liked about the shoes:
- The velcro. Admittedly, T still hasn’t mastered tying her shoelace yet so a velcro strap is a big help for her.
- We like the style and the leather. As mentioned, we’ve been happy with Start-rite from the beginning and know that we are getting good quality shoes.
- At £42.99 we think that the price is just right. Might be pricier than other school shoes, but at least we know that we’re getting our money’s worth and know that it will last her long.
When it comes to school shoes my husband and I don’t really mind spending more for better quality shoes and as I’ve mentioned, T and start-rite have a good history together, we know that this will last her till at least next year. I won’t be surprised if it even lasts longer than that.
As parents of young and active kids, it’s always best to spend a little bit more for good quality school shoes, isn’t it, especially if we know that it will last longer than most of the other brands.
What about you?
Are you a Start-rite parent too?
