Where does your yr 9 DS get his school shoes? Simple question I know but now he's size 8 I'm sure sure if we stick to Clark's or go elsewhere

schuh have a good range so we are going to look round there, but if we can't find anything then will be going back to clarks. (ds is the same year and size)

We just went to Clarks as usual, as we have an outlet near us. My DS is same size and year too!

Great thanks! I take it Velcro fastening is a no go In year 9? So laces ok?

I think Next do theirs up to an 8.i usually hunt amazon for kickers or timberland bargains.

We got ours from doc martins as nothing else lasts
Not allowed trainers of any kind

I take my 2 teenage DS to Next for theirs. They last really well and aren't bad price wise

My Ds is going into year 10 and size 9. He is very slow tying laces so we stick with Velcro from Clarks and he is fine ( obviously wears 'cool' trainers with laces out of school!)

Mine is going into yr10 we get his from M&S.

We always get them from Clarkes. There is lots of choice if you go to one of the big stores, they will fit and I’m not going to get a call from school saying he’s got the wrong shoes. Both wear mostly very nice trainers out of school grin

Clark’s go up to adult size 10 with width fitting. My DS was wearing DM parade shoes from size 8 as any other shoes got trashed in a term. They lasted all year

I got DS's here:

He got the slip-ons they were the first shoes that actually lasted the school year.

My kids have stupidly narrow feet so I go to Clark’s, the outlet store if I can. I haven’t found anywhere else that does the different widths at those kind of prices
