    What shoes do you buy when kids outgrow Clarks?

    I have just been to get my sons new school shoes only to find that he is now a 3 1/2 which Clarks don't do. I have tried Next shoes but they don't last. Any ideas?

    Then enjoy your child-free existent in the insane asylum where you can smear your excrement over the ceiling and walls.

    No, but tempting

    I still have a pair of clarks shoes (childrens section!) which are a size 6 1/2....

    It is a problem, especially for school when you need good quality that will last more than a term. We moved on to Schuch (? right spelling), seemed good quality and lasted a whole year, once his feet stopped growing

    Bootleg? Thats like, the teenager range. I wore Next shoes in the last 2/3 years of school. Playin footy in 'em on the playground, running round n so forth. They were titanium, still has my last pair I bought start of year 11 for work

    Can't you just get a size 4 if you can't find a 3 1/2. His feet will grow quickly in no time!

    The lady in Clarks said that size 3 is the largest size that Clarks do so anything bigger than that i have to buy elsewhere.

    Found the Bootleg shoes but i thought they were expensive so i ordered him a pair of Ben Sherman (apparently hard wearing) from M&M Direct for 23.00. Thanks for your help

    I have a daughter who has the skinniest feet but is a size 13. Asda & tesco do a range that are 'unscratchable'!! & have shoes that fit her for a half decent price. one of my other daughters is mad on football & these shoes even last her until her feet have outgrown them ~ very hardwearing. so could try there.

    mind you, I thought the idea of ice cream tubs was a good one...

    Thats the reason we got shoes from clarks, me and brother both had skinny feet and it was the only place we could get shoes to fit!

    Clarks do a Bootleg range for children which goes upto a size 8 G i think.

    I havent read the thread only OP so sorry if ths has been brought up
