Size 29, ecco Junior Arlanda, black, leather, light weight, strong support – them’s the facts about these shoes. The feelings that came as we bought them for Fox today were very mixed. I could have cried, I didn’t, but I felt sadness, I felt proud of the little person he is and I felt happy for him feeling excited and happy about his new school shoes. It is an interesting mix of excitement for him on his new adventure and sadness for me as he ventures off into the big, wide, wonderful world of school.
I hadn’t planned on buying school shoes this early in the year, but when I popped into Shoes and Socks last week, on a recognisance mission sans kids, the savvy shop assistant showed me the goods and suggested I come back in soon as the smaller sizes and narrower sizes go quickly and they are not able to guarantee they can get more. I have committed that tip to memory and I will buy my kids school shoes in early January from now on so I can be sure they will get the best shoe to fit their narrow, little, feet. Finding shoes that fit my kids and offer support has been really difficult.
