Our school shoes are designed to be gentle on feet from the first school bell until home time because when kids are comfortable, they feel confident.

Comfort features of a Start-Rite School Shoe

With cushioning where it counts and minimal seams that never rub, our shoes help kids get the very best out of their school day. Designed around the way kids run, jump, walk and play, we add cushioning and anti-compression in-soles to our school shoes to reduce the impact on developing feet. Padded ankles give extra comfort around the ankle and lightweight, flexible soles offer freedom of movement for little feet.

School children are on their feet a lot of the day, so our shoes have breathable linings to help feet stay fresh throughout the day. And for active feet, we’ve developed our new Air Rite technology. Designed to let air flow around the feet without affecting the shoes ability to cope with wet weather, Air Rite helps to reduce sweating to keep feet fresh and comfortable for longer.

We’ve developed over 24,000 lasts during the past 225 years, helping us create shoes that fit perfectly for your child’s developing foot shape, ensuring you get the right size shoe and a comfortable fit. Premium materials such as quality leathers mould to the shape of your child’s foot to provide long lasting comfort.
