Cloggs are one of the UK’s largest independent footwear retailers and they got in touch asking if we would like to choose some new school shoes to review here on my blog. I have to say that I was impressed by the huge range featuring the likes of Kickers, Geox, Dr Martens and many more with styles for girls and boys of all ages.
We chose these Kickers Kick T in black patent which come in both infant and junior sizes. As you can see, they are just adorable but they really are a practical choice too. We’ve never had Kickers before (although I have obviously heard of the brand) but I was impressed with just how robust and well-made they were. I love the classic Kickers design and they will be perfect for school. Who says that practical shoes can’t be gorgeous too? I say these give the best of both worlds!
My girls love patent leather shoes because they are shiny. Magpies the pair of them! But actually experience has taught me just how much school shoes are put through their paces day in day out and I always favour patent leather for my girls because I find it really hard wearing. These Kick T shoes have even been specially designed with scuff-resistance in mind. The traditional t-bar design has an adjustable strap and buckle to ensure a perfect fit every time and obviously they are easy for little hands to fasten themselves. I love buckle fastenings as they always feel much sturdier than velcro. They even have an anti-microbial treatment to keep them smelling fresh and the padded heel collar and insole provides extra comfort. Priced at £39.99 for the infant sizes and £44.99 for the junior sizes I think they are very reasonable considering just how sturdy these shoes look. Obviously we are yet to really put them to the test but you can see for yourself just how beautifully made they are.
I have only very recently had my girls’ feet measured so I was quite confident when ordering these shoes online and when they arrived they were thankfully a great fit. There is a size guide on the Cloggs website though if you need it and not only are all orders are available with free fast UK delivery but returns are free too should you need to. Always something to keep in mind when you are ordering shoes online of course.
The Cloggs back to school range includes both boys’ and girls’ school shoes in infant, junior and senior sizes, as well the all-important shoe care products to keep them looking spick and span for terms to come and a fantastic selection of bags for all ages. There is also a great back to school giveaway with kits being given away each week – you can find out more here.
