Indestructible school shoes? #AdGift

Indestructible school shoes? Yes please. Last year my son got through two pairs of shoes during the school year. One of those pairs was just in four weeks! He is incredibly active. He plays football, cycles to school, kicks leaves and has a really annoying habit of dragging his feet along the ground. I had seen adverts online for Treads and really wanted to try them out. My son had a look at the website and picked out the Madrid style. I was impressed with the boy's styles, but I also love that the girls shoes look equally sturdy and will look into purchasing some for my daughter when she next needs some.

I was slightly nervous about the sizing, but Treads offer free returns if you haven't quite measured correctly. They also have a Dual Fit System. All of their range are ergonomically designed to give you the perfect fit. If your child has a wide foot then you can remove the base under sock layer. This means that you increase the width of the shoe from a standard to a wide fitting. My son has incredibly narrow feet and I was a bit worried that they would be too wide. I will admit they are slightly on the wide side, but they fit him well.

The Madrid style that my son chose are hand crafted using the finest of components. I am impressed with the additional protection on the toe because this offers additional durability. The shoes do not have laces, but have a touch fasten rip tape meaning they are easy to put on and off. If your child has narrower feet, you can just pull these extra tight and they help to make the shoes fit well. They are made with Permair leather which is soft enough to allow easy flexible movement. All Treads shoes are constructed using a “strobel” technique where the upper is placed into a mould and the sole is then injected around it creating one unit without the need for any gluing. This not only creates a really strong bond but offers additional flexibility, perfect for active kids.

I really like the style. They are sporty without looking too much like trainers. My son says they are very comfortable and they look smart. Treads are so confident in the quality and durability of their shoes that they offer a 12 Month Indestructible Guarantee. Each Treads shoe assures unsurpassed quality, comfort and durability. Their 12 month guarantee is an expression of their confidence in the material and workmanship of their shoes. If the shoe you buy falls short of these high standards, you may return it to them within 12 months from the day of purchase.

My son has had his Treads for three weeks now and they show absolutely no signs of wear. He plays football every day at school and they are regularly wet. These shoes show no signs that he is abusing them as much as he is! I am very impressed and will definitely be buying them again in the future.
