perfect for winter?

Plimsoles...?

Does he mean Vans type of shoes...like these ?

I'd stay clear, friends a nurse at a secondary school and she's inundated with kids with feet problems due solely (pardon the pun) to Vans style shoes/trainers.

Nike do an all black Air Max trainer, costly though..

Like vans but the cheap version I think they cost £3 In Primark and £4 in shoe zone

Would they be allowed to even wear these At school ?
banned#7
I think so the school uniform policy is
School sweatshirt with school logo
School polo shirt with school logo
Black school trousers
Black school shoes or plain black canvas pumps or plain black trainers as alternative no boots heels or non black footwear

I've been buying black vans for my kids for past 4 years without any problems. To be honest it's what most kids are wearing to school nowadays and vans seem to last for ages

my boys have plain black converse and Vans. They are available in most sport shops

How much would a pair of vans cost ?
#12
Sports direct, B&M and primark have cheap cloth plimsolls
#13
Tesco and ASDA have lots of reductions on kids shoes but it is bit of a lottery. I generally buy the next size a season ahead as no guarantee they will there when I need them.

Don't whatever the advice here skimp on footwear, you only get the pair of feet so it pays to look after them. Get a proper fitting size, both in size and width, you can get measured for free in any Clarks shoe store.

A decent pair from Clarks will cost you about £25/30, it's not much to have a proper fitted pair of shoes.

You get £80 a month in child benefit, it's supposed to go on the child, not on yourself. If you can't scrape together £30 for your own child I feel sorry for you.

If you buy cheap shoes you'll be buying them often, costing you more in the long run. A pair of Clarks will last at a bare minimum a full school term.

Absolutely agree with this . Clarks all the way for mine till he was about 15 . Feet are too important to mess about with . My mum always made us wear properly fitting shoes which I am eternally grateful for . So many of my friends have twisted toes and unions for fashionable but ill fitting shoes . My feet are perfect . Pity about the rest of me

This is so true! Clarks all the way through my younger years and my feet have walked me all over the world now. Friends who wore 'fashionable shoes' have all sorts of issues now with their feet and blame what they wore in their schools years!

Op - you're the mother, YOU decide what he wears not him. He will thank you in later life!
