One of the most challenging back to school tasks that moms go through every year is shopping for footwear. This is especially true if your child has a particular taste in fashion thus making it harder to find school shoes that meet both you and your child’s criteria. The child’s criteria usually focus on the aesthetic and comfort aspects. As for me, I always consider four things whenever I shop for Keisha’s school shoes.
First, it has to be comfortable. Comfort is always a primary consideration whenever your kid is “at work”. Since she’ll be wearing it for almost 8 hours a day, it has to be really comfortable. The last thing you want is for your child to have sore feet or aching muscles while at school. I go for school shoes with cushion as much as possible. This is because I want her footwear to be soft on her feet and she won’t easily feel tired wearing it.
Second, it should be non-slip. Because of course, her safety is a priority. Kids love to run around and play with friends so sometimes accidents happen. But, this can somehow be prevented when they wear a non-slip shoes with good grip.
Third, it has to be easy to wear. Weekday mornings are always a rush when you have kids getting ready for school. As such, you don’t want to waste precious minutes of your morning rush trying to put on your child’s school shoes. Slip-on school shoes are great for older kids but for younger ones who still require straps, Mary Janes or shoes with single Velcro straps are great alternatives.
Lastly, it has to be affordable. Kids’ feet grow up fast so a pair of comfortable shoes that’s affordable is the best. It is simply not practical to buy shoes that costs thousands of pesos if your child will outgrow them after a couple of months or a year at most.
Even if I find school shoes that meet my criteria, it still has to meet Keisha’s style requirements before we make the final purchase. Your child should also feel good about wearing their school shoes and not feel awkward about it. This will add to their confidence while performing tasks in school.
The good news is that there is now a brand that can meet both moms and kids’ criteria for school shoes, the Easy Soft from World Balance. It meets my comfort requirements with its Memory Foam Insole and Vicrotech material that makes it flexible and shock absorbent. It is also waterproof which makes it perfect for the rainy season. I also asked my daughter to test it for my non-slip criteria and it passed our standards too.
As far as style and ease in use are concerned, the Easy Soft line from World Balance offer a wide variety of designs ranging from slip-ons to Mary Janes for you to choose from. All of which are cute and stylish. Now when it comes to affordability, I think this line tops the bill with a price tag of only P499.75! Can you believe that? I used to find it hard to buy good school shoes for less than a thousand pesos, but now it seems we got a perfect find for just half the budget. The Easy Soft shoes are really stylish school shoes that are easy on the pocket.
