High-five mama! You did it, you survived the school holidays. Which means only one thing – it’s BACK TO SCHOOL time! And if you’re like the rest of us, then you’ve left BTS prep to the last minute and have just discovered that your kiddo has outgrown their school shoes and there are mouldy sandwiches at the bottom of their bag. Don’t stress, we got you, we can help (with the shoes, not the sandwiches… soz babe)
Clarks shoes have been around for years (almost 200 years actually!), so chances are you rocked them when you were at school and you know they’re freaking epic. We love that they have ‘new school’ styles made with ‘old school’ quality, plus our kids love wearing them too, #winning. There really is nothing else like Clarks out there.
5 Reasons We Love Clarks
1 // They keep your kiddo’s feet happy as a clam
Did you know a child can sweat 250ml into their shoe per day? Gross. That’s the same amount as a can of Coke! So it’s a good idea to have a shoe with leather linings and uppers which can breathe. Plus, all of Clarks school shoes are treated with an antibacterial spray – genius!
2 // They’re on sale (always a winner)
To make back to school a little more stress-free, Clarks school shoes are 20% off right now, so head in store or jump online to grab a pair for your bambino. Run, don’t walk!
3 // You’re going to find a pair that fits, promise
Shoe shopping with kids can be a nightmare, especially if you need to try on a million pairs to find some that fit. Luckily, the best-selling Clarks Daytona school shoe comes in 234 different sizes (yup!) ranging from a baby size 8 right up to an adult size 14 and in 6 different widths, there is literally a size for errryone!
4 // You’re not going to have to buy another pair next month
Mamas are a lot of things, but professional shoe fitters we are not. That’s why all Clarks stores have specially trained fitters to make sure your little one gets the perfect fitting shoe for their very own Cinderella moment! Pssst… #mumhack, don’t forget to book an appointment if you want to beat the queue.
5 // You can shop online
It’s no secret that mums are the best at shopping online. So if you can’t get to a store and need to grab your school shoes online, you totally can. Plus, you can be confident in fitting your child at home with the Clarks fitting gauge which is available online, as well as video tutorials to talk you through the entire process. Easy AF!
