With so many shoes to choose from it can feel like a mission finding the perfect pair. However, with a pair of Start-Rite’s you can’t go wrong! We have everything you, your child and their school wants in a pair of shoes.

This is why we believe Start-Rite school shoes are the best choice:

Experts in kids’ feet – we design shoes specially for kids and the shape of their feet, not just scaling down adult shoes. We also rigorously test every pair to ensure they’re up for the job.
Built to last - Our school shoes are made to endure the school year – they’re outgrown before they’re outworn! We use durable materials such as vulcanised rubber and nylon bonded threads for longevity and most styles have added heel and toe bumpers to help minimise scuffs and scraps.
Whole & half sizes and a choice of widths – to ensure the perfect fit we have whole and half sizes plus widths from narrow to extra wide – each with that all-important growing room built in.
Choice and style – choice of materials and fastenings from patent to lace to vegan. With styles from smart and formal to casual and trainer-like to chunky and trendy you’ll find something to please parent, child and school.
Simple and quick measuring & fitting – with a choice of our plastic foot measurer, downable paper gauge or digital Click ‘n’ Fit it’s never been easier to measure their feet in the comfort of your own home. Plus, we have handy videos online walking through how to measure, as well as how to check the shoes fit once they arrive.
Free delivery & returns – for 2021 school shoes we’re offer free standard delivery from 22nd July to 5th September plus free and easy 90 day returns so you can buy in confidence knowing that if you change your mind, you can return hassle-free.
