Back to School with Clarks Shoes

Back to School/ Review

Last Thursday I went on the Clarks Shoes website and made an appointment to have the kids feet measured in store the very next day. I was rather pleased by this as one of my hates is having to go and sit and wait to be seen with two impatient kids.  I have been a Clarks customers for many many years now especially for school shoes. In my experience they are always fitted well and incredibly well made and long lasting. Photo 15-08-2014 12 34 32 We got to our local  store at our appointment time and were seen straight away. The kids had their feet measured using the new iPad measuring system! The kids did like having that little bit of interaction with the iPad by entering their age and the symbol for boys/girls depending on their sex. I love how Clarks are moving with the times and are using iPads to measure kids feet now.

He chose these shoes which are incredibly sturdy and I just can see how hard wearing they are going to be, very much needed as Bugs likes to drag a foot along the floor whilst scooting! He was also given this Ladybird memory book which I though was a really lovely touch. It’s such a well thought out book with spaces for lots of school memories.

Why do they feel the need to embarrass us so often 😉 Having bought a full price pair of shoes meant that we would receive £5 off  sports shoes so these were a bargain! You can also get that offer online if you enter BSPORT4 at the checkout.

I can’t believe we got so lucky and everything was in stock for the sizes we needed! Photo 15-08-2014 12 57 59 Boo also needed a pair of trainers for PE so she chose these. She’s having to learn to tie her laces now too. I don’t think she has ever had a pair of shoes with laces in!! How bad is that?! Everything is buckles and velcro these days. I thought she would be put off by this but no she took on the challenge and has been practising tying them for the last few days. She is almost there 😉 So that was our trip to Clarks last Friday. Half an hour, four pairs of shoes, £93.50 in total. Phew it’s done and we are almost all ready to go back to school now! But first we have a weeks holiday to go on and we can’t wait 🙂 Check out the Clarks website and enter to win the best school trip ever!!! * I received vouchers to cover the cost of our shoes but my thoughts are honest.

    Those look like very smart school shoes! I used to go to Clarks when they were babies but I stopped going when a local shoe shop opened and stocked more variety and brands. I might need to go in and see how the iPad feet measuring works though! Enjoy your holiday!
