With Cam recently starting nursery back in January we went on the hunt for good quality plain black "school" shoes. Cam has small and very narrow feet which makes shoe shopping stressful! Not only this but one of his feet turn inwards, so good quality and well fitted shoes is a must. We went in several shops trying on different brands and styles from cheap to expensive with no hope. When we finally settled on Clarks (Why is always the last place you go?!)
Anyway back to the shoe. Out of the 2 styles available Cam obviously choose the stompo because they had dinosaur's even dinosaurs toes! Which are so "cool" I've never seen him so excited over some shoes! They definitely got 5 stars from Cam before he had even worn them.
We paid £32 for Cam's size but it does vary between £32-£36.
So put to the test Cam's worn them everyday at nursery since and they still look as good as new despite his feet issues which usually lead to one side wearing through in weeks. Clarks have stepped up to the mark with these which haven't scuffed despite the daily activity of a nearly 4 year old.
The fact they come in various widths and fitted to your child's need is even more convenient no blisters sore feet or complaints even after wearing for several hours a day. Also available in half and full sizes unlike most of the others we tried on him in different brands.
The extra rubber grip round the side and front have protected most of the scuffing that would normally happen. Which plays a big part in my 5 star review. I am also really impressed with the velco fastening, I was worried it would be like ones we have tried before where after a short time the velcro loses the "stickiness" but its still just as strong as when we purchased despite being put through the washing machine! (I dont really think your suppose to put them through the washer please do not follow me on this!)
Overall me and Cam are really pleased with these shoes and the very high quality.
Definitely worth the money for the comfort and durability.
