Where else other than Clarks can I get decent school shoes for DD (age 9)?
Depends on size and price bracket. Surprisingly my 9yo dd is begging me to buy her some for next term from M&S Size 4 - £18 - cheaper than Clarks by a long way, and very acceptable to me ie v low heel and good support.
10 at the end of the month but yes she's grown more in the last 18 months. Some of her friends are a 5 so I don't think she's unusual... welcome to shoe sharing!! And unfortunatly she's another Imelda Marcos!
I like Startrite, they are a bit more expensive than Clarks but actually fit my DDs feet better. Have to admit the last time I bought DD new shoes was last summer, so although they were dearer, they have actually lasted a whole school year! Much to DDs disgust. I have promised her a new pair for September!
Thanks for all your suggestions and sorry to confuse but I'm in Scotland where the schools have finished and are due back at the start of August. DD feet do usually grow quickly and I'm trying to be ahead of the game because I know this would happen!!
