3 boys later and I am now realising that they were true!! With the two oldest being in school and football mad shoes are not lasting very long, am when I say not long, I mean a term of 6 weeks if I am lucky!
Luckily their feet don`t seem to grow very quickly but within a few days of having a new pair of shoes they look like they have been dragged through a hedge backwards.
I have tried anti-scuff and super-tough shoes but nothing seems to be able to withstand the pounding my boys give them!!
Because of how quickly they go through shoes I`ve tried from top of the range shoes like Clark`s and bargain bucket school shoes and everything in between. I now loathe having to pay out £30 for a shoe that will last if I`m lucky 6 weeks.
After having many conversations with the mum`s in the school playground I am worried that I am being judged as a bad mum for by buying shoes at the cheaper end of the price scale but I really can`t afford £60 every 6 weeks....who honestly can??? I`ve had mum`s look at me in disgust when I say I don`t buy Clark`s shoes each time and some who sympathise with me as they are in the same boat.
Has anyone found a robust shoe that can take a pounding that doesn`t cost the earth?? HELP!!
