Certain schools will request an all white shoe for your child to wear at school, and they are NOT easy to find! When parents hear that their kids need to wear a certain shoe style made of a particular color such as white, they tend to worry about the shoe becoming dirty all the time!
There are certain things that we just can’t avoid, such as our kids’ white sneakers getting dirty. However, there are other more important things to worry about when looking for white school shoes for your child such as making sure the shoes are going to be SUPPORTIVE, DURABLE, and LIGHTWEIGHT!
What parents love the most about this shoe style is how it can be dressy enough to be worn as a school uniform, but also durable enough for playground wear! They also like the fact that the shoe will even fit those children with the widest feet, since the shoe is available in wide and extra wide widths!
It’s hard enough to find an all white shoe for your child to wear, so how are you suppose to find one with all the features mentioned above?
Besides, your child might have narrow, wide, or extra wide feet, which makes things even more commplicated!
Keep in mind that your child will be running around at recess and at physical education class, which means that the shoes will start taking a beating. That’s why it’s so important for the shoes to be durable and supportive! Also, did you know that very time our kids’ feet impact the ground, their feet and knees take a beating? The shoes that you choose for your child are important since they will attempt to reduce that impact, and keep their feet and legs healthy!
This particular shoe style I will review is made by Stride Rite and New Balance, and is an all leather shoe which provides great support, breath-ability, and it also offers great flexibility! It is also designed to be worn as an school uniform or play time.
