Advertisement Feature & Kids School Shoes Review
Time to buy kids school shoes again – ready for the whole back to school thing! This year we’re trying out Treads school shoes and here’s why!
Back to school means it’s that time of year again! When parent’s hit the shops in search of school shoes, uniforms, bags, stationery and lunchboxes. It’s chaos!
This year, we’re ordering as much as possible online to save time and to cut back on the stress of back to school shopping with the kids!
I can’t tell you how much I HATE school shoe shopping. Piling into a shop that’s bursting at the seams with hundreds of kids and stressed parents. Taking a little number ticket and then waiting about a million years to be served! No thanks!
This year we’ve got the kids school shoes online from Treads. And the whole process from start to finish is super easy!
Buying Kids School Shoes from Treads
Okay – so you’re probably worrying about the kids feet being measured – right? And how that will work if you don’t go into the shop in person.
Well Treads have you covered when it comes to measuring kids feet at home. They’ve a handy little measuring gauge you can buy for £4.99 (with free delivery). Alternatively there’s a super easy to use paper measure you can print off and use at home for free.
We used the paper measure and ordered the shoes in the size it showed and when they arrived they fitted really well. So I’m more than happy to measure at home in future too!
Are Kids School Shoes from Treads any good?
Well – we’ve not put them to the ultimate test yet – a term at school BUT, the shoes come with some pretty impressive plus points!
- Breathable leather – which is great for hot busy feet!
- Strobel construction – which basically means the sole is injected around the shoe upper.
- Reinforced heels – to prevent splitting when jumping and stamping!
- Flexible moulded soles – which are hard-wearing, non slip and non marking.
- Shock absorbing insoles – which you can easily remove if you don’t want them in.
- Reinforced seams – for additional strength
- Easy wipe clean surface
BUT…. MORE IMPORTANTLY… TREADS HAVE A 12 MONTH INDESTRUCTIBLE GUARANTEE!
And as a mum of kids who are seriously rough on their school shoes! This is music to my ears! You can find out more about the 12 Month Indestructible Guarantee here.
Treads school shoes come in a range of different style and sizes suitable for boys and girls aged 6-16 years old.
We love that the shoes come with dual fit technology. Just by removing the base under the sock layer increases the width of the shoe from a standard to a wide fitting. Or allows for you to use your own shoe inserts.
You can shop for Treads school shoes online here.
The shoes we reviewed are the boys Madrid shoes priced at £45.
