Have you been looking for a pair of good uniform shoes for your boy? Are you looking for a shoe style that is supportive, comfortable and also durable?
When I write a review about a particular shoe style is because I have fitted that particular shoe style before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes, the amount of supportthat they provide, and how they fit.
Certain schools have a particular school code that requires your child to wear a certain shoe style. If you are looking for a supportive, durable, and sturdy pair of shoes that your child can wear to school and play during recess, I will describe the best school uniform shoes for boys.
I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years, working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in different widths, since that’s the only way we can guarantee to FITevery single child.
I am familiar with which are the best shoe brands and the best shoe styles among those brands from actually having fitted and tested the shoes in different children’s feet.
I will show you a selection of the best school uniform shoes for boys that are better-made and will provide more support than others shorty, but first I decided to recreate the most important questions that parents have asked me at the shoe store about these shoe styles:

This shoe style will fit a child with a medium (choose M), wide (choose W), or an extra wide (choose XW) foot.
