Help! My DS is rising 13 and already takes a size 12 mens shoe - but as he is still growing, needs a boys shaped shoe (i.e. narrower than the normal wide fitting man's shoe, sturdy sole, thick laces, unfashionable!). Does anyone know of a UK website that supplies such a thing?
His last pair cost me £95 for a mans shoe for school! Disaster for my purse!
DS went up about 6 shoe sizes during Year 6 and was a size 11 by the age of 13. Thankfully hasn't gone up any higher and he's now nearly 16. I just buy very cheap men's shoes from Windsors or Tescos. If you want them fitted surely Clarkes sell narrow ones for less than £95?
DH and DS1 &3 have HUGE feet, 12/12.5/13 depending on style. We have a TK MAXX nearby, and if you shop there regularly, there are always larger sizes to be had, often quite formal (so make good school shoes), expensive shoes, or really good brand trainers, for a fraction of the "real" price. I've seen shoes in there up to size 15! As always with TKmaxx, you need to buy things when you see them, as they are dealing with end of line/season.....
