Shoe school drama

Shoe school drama, what is this you say? Is it some boring TV programme, no sorry it really isn't that interesting. No it's more the millions of pairs of schools I've had to buy this term. This school year I thought I would boycott Clarks as the shoes are so expensive but sadly this hasn't worked well, two pairs of shoes wrecked and me spending the same amount for a pair of Clarks shoes in the first place

This big issue is playing football at playtime, I think he does so every lunchtime meaning this last pair of shoes I brought this term are ALREADY wrecked. Argh very annoying and feels like such a waste of money to be constantly buying shoes. I ended up putting him in red trainers as did not want to fork out for a new pair as only just brought the last pair, but the school said he would be in trouble if he doesn't come in with school shoes on.

The first pair I brought to boycott Clarks were from M&S I ought good quality brand, they will stand the test of a 8 year old boy who loves football, but alas no. By October he had scuffed he front and ripped the sides. I emailed M&S who have offered them to be returned but I sot the receipt and am far to scared to get rejected in store! The second pair were a sturdy looking pair from sainsburys but 3 weeks in they have major scuff marks and the stitching is coming away! Very frustrating!

So here I am in my school shoe drama, stuck looking for a pair of Indestructible shoes for a 8 year old who plays a lot of sport. 

If you have any tips for shoe care or where I can get a decent pair please help. 


  1. Ah I know what you mean about the expense of shoes and mine isn't even in school yet, let alone playing football. I don't understand how some kids shows are MORE than adult shoes, they're so much minier! Hope you're having a good week! Mim @ #sharewithme

  2. I get you. But I think school shoes have to be expensive to last! I paid £40 for Luka's and they are still going strong. Think if he needs more before the end of the year they'll be cheaper ones but for winter I like to know he has a good pair. They do cost a fortune though I totally agree! x x

  3. Ahh bless you I think boys will be boys and go through shoes no matter where you buy them time and time again. I have six brothers there were PLENTY of shoes going through our house I promise good brands and cheap ones too! I hope you find a solution. I know not very good advice. Sorry.
