My daughter is due to start secondary school in September - big step and lots of growing up I expect! confused

I have been recently thinking about school uniform and was a little stumped with the shoes. She is currently wearing Mary Jayne style clarks shoes which have been fine but we both agree are a bit young looking.

What type of shoes do girls wear at secondary school? She will have to do a lot of walking. Any help greatly appreciated smile

My DDs have brogues or ballet flats with a strap. DD1 had brogues from Dune - about £40 and lasted all year. DD2 had Topshop brogues which lasted until about March, and then ballet flats with strap from Step2wo sale. DD3 had Topshop ballet flats with strap which lasted.

Next year DD2 and DD3 want brogues. DD1 fancies those slipper like shoes (like this, but plain: www.dune.co.uk/luckey-metal-heeled-textured-slipper-shoe-0076509010001484/ ) but as the school says no slip ons she's not going to get them. Apparently uniform rules don't apply as much in Year 13, despite what the planner and website might say..

More evidence that English schools are Mich stricter than Scottish ones, or at least round here where the uniform list only specifies "black".
Have bought Ds karrimors which are more of a trainer/shoe cross but can't really see anyone complaining.
Dds wore pretty much anything and no-one seemed to mind.

DD went shopping with DH and they came back with these

I hope they'll be OK. School rules say leather, black, no logos, so they may fall foul of the logo rule. Which would be a shame, because they look like really practical durable shoes.
