First pair of school shoes with Brantano

We were recently asked if we would like to choose a pair of school shoes from Brantano. I told Little Man and he was really excited. This will be his first ever pair of shoes and the day of going to get them was a very bitter-sweet moment. I am so Happy that Little Man is going to school however I will miss him so much during the day.

We arranged to go to our local Brantano store and we were all greet by a lovely lady called Leanne. Little Man went really shy and didn’t really want to speak. Leanne was brilliant with him chatting about what he likes and when he start school (actually cant believe its only 2 weeks away now)

Leanne Measured the size of his feet and then wrote The measurements down in a booklet which had a sticker for Little Man to wear. She took us over to the correct section for Little Man’s size and went through the shoes with us. Little Man has quite a flat foot so sometimes it can be hard to find a pair to fit him. We picked out a couple of pairs and Leanne tried them on him. I had already told Little Man that he had to have velcro shoes as he is unable to tie his own laces. She got him to walk up and down the shop and then run, she advised that they were a perfect fit. Little Man liked these so much and didn’t want to try any others on. I was happy and so was Daddy, they are lovely Hush Puppy shoes and look like they are lovely and comfy.We are going to be walking to school each morning so a good fitting, good quality pair of shoes for all weather types were needed. I am confident these shoes will be lasting us a long time or until Little Man’s feet grow out of them.





These shoes complete the final piece of the school uniform jigsaw. We now have all the uniform and Little Man is all ready for starting school.

    I don’t often go to Brantano but this post reminds me how good they are – I have always had a good experience there and love the selection, so will go back! I hope the first days at school go nice and smoothly

      It was brilliant because its a massive shop and it wasn’t very busy. Our local clarks is so small and takes ages to get seen I’ve ended up walking out a few times. Really great experience xx

    Getting well fitted shoes is so important and it is good to see that Brantano fit shoes correctly.
