I’ve never liked back to school shoe shopping.  What’s in, what’s not.  Am I going to be wearing the right thing or are people going to make fun of me?
I know it sounds absurd but I remember going from one school where DM’s as we called them were the real deal and then arriving at the next with a brand new pair, only to find that almost the whole school were wearing Kickers. I rang my mother who came to visit the next weekend with a brand new pair of the latest Kickers. She was my hero!  It seems silly looking back and I really hope that my son, who goes to big school in September won’t have shoes on his mind!
I’m not a big fan of proper school shoes on the best of days but I’ve pulled together what I think are the best of the bunch, from my old school Dr Martens and and smart Penny Loafers to classic T Bars and patent leather brogues for the fashionistas!  I hope there’s something for everyone.
