[Solved] £3 school shoes how much did you spend ??

New Member Registered

How much did you spend on school shoes this year ??
My 11 year old son started secondary school last September and his new school allows plain black pumps as school shoes so my son wears pumps as school shoes. I bought him a pair from primark which cost £3 his school has a jumper and polo shirt uniform.

If the school allows it, seems fine to do this.

Hi There,
I would say you are lucky, my stepsons shoes were around £50 this year and have never been below £35 so just a couple of pound is doing really well.
I'm sure people would comment of how good these shoes are for his feet, but as long as you are keeping an eye on his feet and he wears some more supportive shoes at weekends he should be fine.

When my daughter was at school we always opted for what we could afford, and at times saved to buy her a good pair of shoes. As an adult she has kept up with buying good supportive shoes.

More important though. as family budgets can be very tight is to have your childs feet checked for size so that you are buying the right size shoes for your child, including width.
