Start-Rite Shoes Product Manager, Sara Driscoll, shares her favourite school shoes from our AW20 collection.
Giggle in black leather
New in this back to school for primary girls is style GIGGLE. If you are looking for a girly school shoe with comfort features, then Giggle is the shoe for you. However, what is fabulous about this style is the unicorn detail on the sock which was hand illustrated by our designer. Giggle has toe and heel bumpers and leather lining for all day comfort, as well as a removable footbed for a custom fit. Not to mention the easy to use rip-tape fastening. It is available in both black leather and black patent in three width fittings.
Twizzle in black patent
We also have a little sister to Giggle called, TWIZZLE in black patent , which is a part of our first school shoe range. This design has a removable footbed for a customised fit, leather lining for breathability and toe and heel bumpers for protection – not to mention the enchanting bow detail.
Rhino Warrior in black leather
RHINO WARRIOR in black leather is the school staple which kids come back for every year and it’s not hard to see why! It’s the perfect balance of smart and casual. It comes with toe bumpers for added protection, leather lining for breathability and rip-tape fastenings for easy on/off foot entry. Warrior is a part of our Rhino range for senior boys and starts from a large 1 up to a large 9 in four width fittings.
Rhino Sherman in black leather
If a lace up fastening is preferred, then RHINO SHERMAN in black leather is a great alternate.
Impact in black patent
Be sure to make an IMPACT with this chunky lace up shoe at school. A great combination of durability and fashion and a favourite style of mine. New for this season and available in black leather or black patent , Impact is a part of our Angry Angels senior shoe range - available in sizes 31- 42 in a medium or wide fitting. It’s a great style for conscious kids pushing the boundaries but also reassuring for parents.

TICKLE in black leather is perfect for the playground explorers who love creepy crawlies and outdoor adventures! This design is great for active kids as it has heel and toe bumpers to alleviate scuffing, but also breathable lining and a padding collar for all-day comfort.
