Taking On The World In New Shoes

Written by
shoes on a wall

It’s back to school time and after 6 weeks of summer lazing about in flipflops and trainers, I’m sending my kids in to school for the new term where they can take on the world in their new shoes!

The start of September is often a time for newness and cranking things up again, so just like Coco Chanel said, I too will be keeping my head, heels and standards high with my own new back to school shoes!

Taking on the world in new shoes

New shoes are always exciting and especially school shoes because the start of term is the one time when everyone looks clean and well turned out – before the games of football in the playground take the shine off their shoes and autumn school trips walking through mud dull the soles.

My children’s shoes are from the F&F School range at Tesco which promises a scuff resistant coated leather so I hope that they will still look as new by half term, but I especially liked the anti bacterial lining of my daughter’s shoes and the micro-fresh technology to reduce odours in my son’s shoes so that at least our hallway will be pleasant smelling at the end of the school day!

Pictured above from left to right are

Darcey ankle boots £28 from Wynsors; girl’s  F&F leather school pumps £16 at Tesco; boys F&F Riptape leather shoes £20 at Tesco.

Also pictured on my daughter (centre) are the F&F belted school skirt £6 Tesco and Girls’ Super Strength Tights £10 Tesco.

I particularly like that my daughter’s tights are super strength and bobble resistant as she seems to go through tights at quite a rate! These are really thick and feel like great quality, plus they will keep her warm in the winter.

So with our shoes all sorted for the school run this week, I just have to come up with what I’m going to wear?! The kids are easy – they have a uniform!

If you are doing the school run for the first time this September and want to be more stylish than jeans and a T shirt but are unsure of what to wear, here is a vlog I recorded with a few style tips for mums:

Disclosure: Thank you to F&F Tesco who sent us the children’s school shoes, tights and skirt for this review and to Wynsors World of Shoes who sent my shoes. All opinions are my own.

  • Those shoes look very smart and I’m very taken with yours too. I am always on the look out for something practical yet stylish for the school run.

  • I wish I could put the boys in tesco shoes, but both have wide feet and they just don’t fit or last. We did try for Maxi, but they lasted six weeks. The startright ones we bought cost more but lasted a whole year

  • I used to love getting new school shoes, but mine weren’t quite as fashionable as that in the 80’s I seem to recall! 😀 We don’t have a uniform at our school so we have no need for special shoes, but it would be nice if we did! 🙂

    • I remember my favourite school shoes of the 80s were black patent leather with an ankle strap! I thought I was so fashionable!

  • Why can’t school shoes be coloured, it almost seems impossible to buy anything other than black lol. My kids love new shoes but hate black ones

    • I’d personally love coloured school shoes but I don’t think our head teacher would go for leopard print!!

  • I love your boots. Have to admit that I always buy Clarks or Startrite for mine as not only do they last better but they fit better too

  • A long coat – that’s a great tip. I could have benefited from one of those yesterday, when I accidentally did the school run with my jumper inside out. Eek!
