Hard wearing trainers for DS 11

I seem to be buying my ds a new pair of trainers every half term - he wear straight through them. He wears them all day at school 3 days per week and also as his weekend shoes.
we have always bought Karrimor ones but I was wondering what was out there that would be longer lasting.

He is adult size 7 and needs the drawstring closure instead of laces as he has adhd and loses the plot when faced with tying a lace.

Mine wear Air Force ones and the laces are knitted in such a way they just slip on and off like slippers. They last for absolutely ages

Knotted - by the DC themselves
