Girls School Shoes

Our Top Pick

My favourites are the Start-rite Girls Angry Angels Matilda Brogues as they are super stylish, classic and made of soft leather which is comfortable for kids feet. Both my daughters have worn these exact school shoes at one time or another! Make sure your child can do their own shoelaces if you decide on these ones!

Boys School Shoes

Our Top Pick

My favourites are the Kickers Kick Lo Vel Kid's School Shoes as they are super stylish, designed to promote healthy feet and ideal for a smart but practical boys school shoe. I also like the velcro fastening for easy dressing.
