As a single parent raising children, its often one challenge after another. One major discovery was that my kids' school shoes needed replacing on a regular basis, sometimes in a matter of weeks. Nothing seemed to last. If I spent £50 on an established high street brand there'd soon be holes in the uppers or straps coming off.
If I went down the cheaper option from the supermarket, the sole would remove itself from the shoe altogether with toes poking through.
Having worked in the shoe industry for many years, I knew the shoes I was buying were not fit for purpose and there had to be a better solution. So I got to workShop Now
The shoes I was buying used cheap materials and were nearly always poorly made. The attention to detail was sadly lacking with very little thought going into comfort and durability. In short the companies I was buying from were looking to make a "quick buck"Shop Now
Footwear used in the industrial and construction work place is designed to provide the highest protection and durability possible, in hugely unforgiving environments. The construction and more importantly the materials used need to be the very best in order to comply with very rigorous certification. So I wondered, "What if you apply the same materials and technology into making a school shoe?"
So that's what I did!Shop Now
