What School Shoes Are The Best?

Whether your child is going to preschool or kindergarten or they're already in first grade, you'll have to decide what type of school shoes they need. As we all know, learning in comfort is essential for children and adults alike so it's important that their shoes fit them properly and are comfortable. This article will look at some tips on how to choose the best shoes for your child so they can be comfortable while learning.

Consider your child's needs

You want to make sure that the shoe you choose is not only comfortable but also provides the proper support for your child. If they are too tight or too loose, it can cause blisters and even damage their feet. A good way to gauge if a shoe is too small or large is by checking how far back the heel sits on the foot compared to other shoes of their size. If it sits further back in these cases, then chances are those particular shoes will be more uncomfortable than others.

In addition to comfort and proper fit, many parents are choosing school shoes based on what type of activities their children will be doing throughout the year (running vs walking). For example, if your child plays soccer at school or outside frequently during recess time then getting them a pair with grips might help them keep from slipping when running around. However, if they ride bikes around town then getting them biking-specific footwear might be more beneficial because these types tend to have better traction than traditional sneakers do! It’s important that when shopping for new footwear we consider what activities our kids do most often so that we can find something appropriate for each activity they participate in at school or elsewhere.

Go to a professional shoe fitter

If you're unsure about the quality of the shoe, or the type of shoe your child needs, go to a professional shoemaker.  A professional shoemaker will be able to check whether or not a shoe fits properly and is comfortable for your child to wear. This can be hard to determine from afar because children have different sizes and shapes than adults, so it's best to take them along when buying new shoes so that they can be fitted for good quality footwear that will last them for years.

Ask them if it's too big or too small. If someone gave you an outfit that was too large or too small, wouldn't it make sense to ask someone else if they thought it looked right? The same goes for school shoes - because they're worn by children under pressure at school every day (and sometimes outside), their fit matters more than most other items of clothing would!

Remember to get the proper size

It's important to make sure that you're buying the right size of shoe for your child. Shoes that are too big or too small can cause problems such as blisters, calluses and even ingrown toenails. To find out what size is best for your child's foot, you'll need to measure it from heel to toe in both length and width.

There are two ways of measuring kids’ feet, length or width. You can use either method when shopping online at ASOS or on another website like Littlewoods if you don't feel confident enough at first glance with how wide or narrow the shoe is supposed to be. It is also recommended to try them on in person first if possible.


The best school shoes are those that fit your child's feet and encourage them to move around. It's important to find a pair that fits well and is comfortable enough for them not to want to take them off. Good quality shoes will also last longer than cheaper ones meaning you won't need to buy new ones all the time!
