Finding the right fit

If you come and visit Spendless in one of our stores. Have one of our team members help you out! Our staff would be happy to sit down with you and your kids to ensure the perfect fit. Otherwise, you can do it yourself! Here are our top tricks for checking your child's school shoes are the right size:

  • Have your child try them on with the same type of socks they would wear during the school week.
  • Make sure there is about 1cm between the sides of the school shoes when they are tied.
  • There should be 1cm of space between the longest toe and the front of the school shoes. Check by pressing down on the top and feeling for the toe position, or have your child wriggle their toes.
  • Make sure there is no pressure, tension, or pinching at the heels.
  • Have the child walk around, and make sure there is no slipping at the heel or creasing on the upper shoe.

The best material

There is a fair amount of debate over leather versus synthetic materials. If you want synthetic styles, you should know what the advantages don't stop at environmentally-conscious fashion. Our human-made material designs also correct many weaknesses that occur with all-leather school shoes.

We praise leather for its breathability and allowance for better air circulation. Concerning school shoes, this is beneficial during the summer, where leather can stop feet from being smothered. As such, younger children are less likely to be plagued by warts or blisters that might form because of sweaty socks.

Synthetic materials, on the other hand, have excellent water-resistance and are very easy to clean. For school shoes, they also require far less maintenance and upkeep than leather and mark less easily.
