Most mornings when heading to work I spot high school kids at the bus stop wearing Vans and the staff in the shops confirm, that Chapman Stripe and Ward G are the current trend for teens schools shoes. The Chapman Stripe features a double stitch suede upper meaning they’ve got great durability. While the signature waffle outsole gives them added grip. The way these Vans are constructed will give your kids/teens increased comfort. What’s great about Vans black trainers is that they are unisex and super stylish.

When GORE-TEX is used in their shoes, it is incorporated between the upper and the lining which offers excellent properties. So even if your kids love to jump in puddles, walk in the rain or play in the snow then you can rest assured that their feet will stay dry and comfortable.

School Shoes on a Budget

At Begg Shoes we understand that Back to School season is a difficult one for some families and so have the option of offering affordable footwear for our customers with still being able to offer the professional fitting service. There is nothing wrong with wearing a pair of plimsolls but you should always remember that your children’s foot health should be your main priority.

Often teachers may insist on kids wearing plimsolls to protect the carpets, however your child’s health is more important than floors. A few points to remember when buying plimsolls is that they are only available in an average fitting and surveys show that only 28% of children have average fitting feet (according to the Society of Shoe Fitters). The sole of plimsolls are not as strong as other shoe options which would mean less protection for your kids feet if they wear them on the playground.

Healthy feet = happy feet and well fitting shoes should be worn all day while plimsolls, trainers and wellies to be worn for sport or occasional wear. You will also find some styles from previous season school shoes on sale, so if budget is an issue you may want to have a browse through there.
