No parents like seeing their sons going off to school with ratty shoes. That's why boys school shoes should be both attractive and functional. They have to last, but they also have to be snazzy enough not to elicit jeers or other teasing. That's where these stunning loafers come in.
There are leather shoes in five colours: brown, red, dark blue, light blue, and black. The red leather loafers come with a nifty blue-and-white triple stripe across the instep. The two shades of blue also have similar stripes of different colours. When it comes to suede shoes, we offer six varieties, five of which have the same kind of stripes. The base colours of the suede loafers are: dark blue, black, red, light blue, khaki, and pink.
All of these shoes are crafted with utmost quality and are geared for long life. They are lovingly hand-stitched and come with comfortable, padded heels and arch supports for growing feet.
When it comes to care, never use water directly on any of our shoes. A damp cloth will suffice, but if it doesn't, just add a small amount of liquid soap to the cloth. For the suede shoes, remove the bulk of the muck and then let them dry. Then, use a suede brush to remove most of the remaining dust. After that, the damp cloth will put you right as rain.
Speaking of rain, it might be a good idea to get a can of waterproofing spray and to treat the shoes before letting your young ones out into the puddles. We caution parents, however, that these shoes are not designed for flood conditions.
When it comes to sizing, these shoes will fit sizes 20 to 38 in Europe. The approximate sizing in Australia and the United Kingdom is from 4 to 13, which fit children aged 9 months to 9 years. For sizes above that, sizes 34 to 38 are the same as Australian and U.K. sizes 1 to 5.
United States sizing is similar, with the shoes for 9-month-old children being size 5 and the size for 9-year-olds being size 14. Beyond that, the U.S. sizing ranges from 2 to 6.5. Interestingly, there is no American size 1.
We include a handy-dandy sizing chart that includes a measuring gauge. This is our free, printable version of the shoe store's metal contraption. All you have to do is to put your child's heel in the correct spot and see where the toes end up. Alternatively, you can also simply draw your child's foot on a blank piece of paper, cut it out, and then measure the cutout.
That method actually works better because the child's weight upon the measuring paper can skew the results. We want your son's boys school shoes to fit. If we can get you the right size right away, your child will be all the more ready for adventures of the imagination!
