With two short weeks until the school year ends and then a summer holiday that will pass in a whirl of activity no doubt I usually find myself thinking about back to school uniform and shoes very last minute! So this year I was glad to have the opportunity to review a pair of school shoes and be somewhat more prepared than usual. Hopefully it might make me order the rest of their items that much sooner.
We were sent the Geox William 2 Strap school shoes from Cloggs. They seem very well made and pretty sturdy, which is what I need for mine. They are continually scuffing their shoes on something, banging the fronts into fences and walls, dragging them along pavements… basically you get the idea they do not look after their shoes!
I tend to try and spend less as their shoes need replacing so often, but that might actually be a false economy and spending that little bit more will hopefully give a better quality shoe that can cope with life with the boys. I think these ones by Geox look up for the challenge. Eldest was given the honour of having them and he wore them straight to school the next day, so much for my hopes to have a shiny new pair for September. Thankfully though they are in good condition still so I can get away without buying an extra set for the new school year. A sigh of relief from me, with the house draining our every last penny!
Eldest found them comfortable to wear, it was nice seeing him looking so smart for a change as he tends to want to wear multicoloured trainers usually (the school have quite a laid back attitude about footwear!). Geox are quite advanced with their signature microporous membrane to allow feet to breathe, ideal for the hot weather especially! So all in all I was very pleased of our first experience of Cloggs and Geox school shoes.
