Long shot, but who knows.... Daughter came home from school Friday with a nasty note about her shoes. She was wearing black ugg style -rip offs. If she doesn't have them in the morning, she has to wear some lost property ones... (good luck to them with that one!!!)
I have no trouble with this, but I have spent all weekend trying to find 'suitable' school shoes for her. BUT I need a size 8 (adult.. wide)
Well I haven't found any.....
I need an apropriate letter explaining why....
I want to ask the teacher involved if SHE fancys taking my daughter shoe shopping... so my brain wont help me write a diplomatic letter....
Does anybody feel like helping??? :)

You've had 4 months since school started to get the right shoes.


Lol... yes I have, and she has gone through about 3 'acceptable' rubbish fashion ladies pairs!!! :w00t:

I don't want excuses, I just need to buy her some time whilst I get hold of some real shoes that fit! :)

Looool, that is what I am saying!!!! :w00t:

I'm trying to find sensible school shoes... in a very odd size for school shoes!!!!!

I haven't gone along with her......... I am trying to find a shop that sells them!!! :whistling:

are you certain you looked everywhere?, I just done a quick search and marks and sparks had size 8 kids shoes for school (in stock).

If you did genuinely look then i would write something to this effect:

Unfortunately over the weekend i was unable to find any suitable shoes for my daughter. I will address this issue as soon as possible. I do not have any hesitation for my daughter to wear shoes from the lost property box in the mean time. I was unaware that my daughter’s ugg boots would not conform to the schools dress code. Kind regards

Dear

re:

I refer to your note of the 19th January in respect of my daughters footware.

I took my daughter to a number of shops over the weekend to attempt to comply with your wishes. Unfortunately, due to the size and fitting that she needs we were unable to find any shoes in stock that would suit. I must therefore ask for an extension to the deadline for compliance with your request.

You may notice that
is having to wear the same footware. I must stress that this is due to necessity rather than any other reason. I understand that should we not find any alternative footware then you will provide suitable footware from your shoes at school. I am happy for this, provided that they are the right size and fitment and have been sanitized.

I will attempt to find alternative footware as a priority and I would be grateful for any help that you can provide to me and my daugther over this issue.

Yours sincerely





. . . . . . or something like that perhaps?

Brain's too tired to think about writing letters just now (need sleep).
THIS website has loads of choice in shoes, with many varying styles. You might find something on there for your daughter. I can sympathise - having big feet is no joke!! It is a nightmare to find shoes or boots that fit comfortably and look nice too.

Just go to clarks or somewhere and get some decent leather ones.

Dear XXX
I have sent my daughter to school today in the only shoes at home that are suitable for school. I accept that these are not 'school' shoes but I have spent the whole weekend trying to find ones that are not only suitable for school but are also comfortable for her to wear, in a size that fits. I appreciate that you require all pupils to attend school in suitable fotowear and I can assure you that I am doing my best to find a pair that is both acceptable to you and I but until such time that I purchase a suitable pair I am sending my daughter to school wearing the ones she is in at this moment. Please note that my only alternative was to keep her at home due to your request for 'suitable footwear' which I currently do not possess which I am sure you would not find as a suitable alternative for her education. Would you please allow my daughter to continue to wear these shoes until I purchase the correct ones, which I hope to find before next week.
Yours sincerely

I may just love you!!! :-D

That was what I was looking for! The thing is, the teacher that started it was obviously having a bad day. My daughter's friend started the new term, in September, wearing the same boots, but as soon as we risk it..... :x:thinking:

My mens leather clark shoes were £40 from one of those big shoe shops in retail parks that have loads of different brands. I wear through shoes very quickly and but these have almost no signs of wear after 5 months so far.


Yes, but have you looked at womens shoes recently?? I was trying to shove her towards some Rockports or something, but the fashion police wont allow it ( Grrrr!) The soles of the womens shoes are carp!!! :x
#11
awww dmh :friends: just go to the school and explain you have noted their complaint against the current shoes she is wearing and you will find a more suitable pair sd soon as you can..... tho tell them due to health reasons, you don't want her wearing school shoes coz you don't know who's mangy feet have been in them :w00t:

Says it all really, your daughter is fobbing you off


Maybe, wouldn't be the first time, but when you can see the foot flattening the shoe.... you gotta wonder! :thumbsup:

I can honestly say I made her try on LOADS of shoes today, they just wont fit!!! ( or if they do, they have wafer thin soles, that wont last 5 mins........ :x)

Clarks still have a sale on hun or perhaps Brantano :?

Wow serious issues, someone's shoes are no different to a swimming pool changing room floor.


yeah but at least swimming pool changing room floors are getting washed daily by people going into showers and staff cleaning them :p

Not in fact true, your shoes adapt to the nuances in your foot so even though they may be the same size they do not in fact fit another person with the same size :thumbsup:

Yeah but you still get verrucas and warts


true but less likely than wearing any old pair of shoes

Aw thanks lynds!!!!

I wasn't after starting a bid debate, but my head was trying to make me write a letter to that specific teacher, explaining about PMT!!!!! :w00t:

The ugg boots looked FAR better than the stupid ballet pump thingys that are OK.... IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER!!!!! :thinking:

And as for the 'making her wear the schools shoes' I would LOVE to know where they got 'em from if they find some that fit.... !:)

I grew up with size 8 feet. And it IS hard. Shops havn't quite caught up with extending their ranges into size 7+ and these days the ones that are availiable are shoddy, don't last more then a month and look awful. I had no choice but to wear those ballet shoes. They were horrible in the winter, feet were so cold that it hurt to walk. In a parents point of view you were correct in sending her in those Ugg style shoe, atleast it would be warmer for her. Point out to the teacher that you think wearing the boots is acceptable as the ballet shoes do not provide sufficent insulation and can cause a wide variety of problems:

Possible Complications of Cold Feet

+Abscess and Celulitis: Localized pockets of infection under the skin.

+Dry Skin or Cracked Skin: As a result of cold feet, dry skin or cracks in the skin can lead to severe infection when inadequate blood flow is present. Individuals who are affected by peripheral neuropathy are particularly vulnerable to cold and are at risk of serious complications due to poor circulation to the feet and legs. It is extremely important to keep the patients feet warm and to keep the skin moisturized.

+Loss of Sensation: Chronic cold feet can result in a loss of soft and sharp touch to the feet.

+Loss of sleep: Recent studies have found that cold feet can result in disrupted sleeppatterns.

+Gangerene: In severe cases gangerene can occur. Gangerene is death of tissues (necrosis) which usually requires surgery.

Taken from http://www.drfoot.co.uk/coldfeet.htm

Then continue saying that your daughter will carry on wearing this type of shoe while the cold persists.

Unfortunanalty I do suffer from VERY dry and cracked skin and loss of sensation of having to wear those stupid ballet shoes in the winter.

Good Luck

To be honest, I am almost tempted to just keep her off school. I can't even go out and find her some without her being with me! :?

I have some coming from Littlewoods on Tuesday... but dont even know if they will fit!!! :x
