The school is a tiny version of the real world, where our children can develop the skills and relationships that they need in actual life. Thus, sending our children to school is like sending them to a camp, and the best we can do for them is send them with the best gears they can use. Most of us probably focus on the preparation of the school supplies and uniforms very much that we forget about the shoes they should wear- when our children will be spending the entire school year in them.
And when we say that school is a camp, it is. Students walk and run around during breaktime. They stand in their shoes for about seven to eight hours a day. We should choose durable shoes to last them through all the activities- rain or shine. The appropriate design is also important. Students grow, and while some doesn’t grow out of their shoe sizes, they grow out of their tastes. Choose styles appropriate for a seven-year old if your child is seven years old, and choose styles for teens if your child is in high school. There are also some features that could make the shoes more comfortable. Among these are extra linings for cushion and breathing. Most importantly, school shoes should be wearable in school. Avoid colors that would go against the school uniform’s color. Most schools today require that school shoes be black so it’s better to go safe.
School shoes are one of the most important things that students need, and providing them with the proper shoes could help them do their activities in school well. It is important that we send them in the most comfortable and safe shoes appropriate for any school situation.
