We have made it to the end of the first half term for this academic year!
I think we have all breathed a sigh of relief as we did that last school drop off this morning. It’s been a long term for me partly due to the girls continual habit to forget everything.
So far we’ve had an entire school uniform, one school shoe, a pair of football boots, a lunch box along with countless ties and pencil cases going missing at school. Luckily we’ve been reunited with each item within a few days but the stress on a Wednesday morning to discover a whole uniform is missing is not fun. Bella’s face when I told her she would have to go in to school in just her pants was mildly amusing though.
One thing that has not let us down is our school shoes, before the girls went back to school they were very kindly gifted some new shoes from Treads. They have been well and truly put to the test, even experiencing a trip to lost property (poor shoe).
This was my first time buying the children’s school shoes from Treads and also online! I have always liked to take the girls into store so the could be measured properly but Treads send out a measurement kit which allowed for me to measure in the the comfort of our own home. It was so easy to use to get the correct sizes and really convenient. We all know kids aren’t always in the mood to hang around busy shops waiting for their turn to be measured. Doing it myself was great!
The moment of truth; for my measuring skills were when the shoes arrived.Luckily they were spot on with just the right amount of growing room to ensure they will last! Perfect! Maisy has the Brisbane shoes and Bella the Alberta. They also have a dual fitting system so you can remove the under layer for a wider fit. We all know school shoes aren’t cheap so it’s a great little touch.
With a padded collar and cushioned heel they provide all day comfort – and they really do. The girls leave the house at half past 7, some evenings don’t get home until 5pm with no complaints at all.
Treads shoes also come with a 12 Month Indestructible Guarantee, 7 weeks in and I can see why – they still look brand new despite the girls best efforts!
The girls love their shoes and so do I, Treads have been kind enough to give one of my readers the chance to experience how good they are for yourselves with the opportunity to win a pair of shoes(worth up to £45)! Just enter below via rafflecopter widget to be in with the chance.
