Mid-School Year Shopping
While you hoped when you kitted out the kids in September that that would be that for another year, unfortunately it doesn’t always work out to be the case. Children grow exceptionally quickly, and a mid-year growth spurt may have you noticing that their school trousers are looking a little short, and them complaining that their school shoes are a little tight. Even if your school age child hasn’t had a growth spurt, school jumpers are easily lost in a post-PE sea of identical ones, and school shoes are easily scuffed in playground kickabouts.
The good news is, you can keep your child looking smart for less when you head to your local supermarket to stock up on school uniform supplies. ASDA has everything that you need to refresh your child’s uniform drawer, and you can get all your school shoes at bargain supermarket prices to boot.
While it might not be easy to find all of the uniform items that you need in-store all year round, you can shop online at George at ASDA and find a full range of uniform at low prices. Pick up school sweatshirts in a variety of school colours from just £2, and trousers from just £3. If your child’s polo shirt supply is running a bit low, you can stock up with two packs from just £2.50.
It’s important to be diligent when it comes to school shoes and check regularly with your child that their shoes are still comfortable and supportive. Poorly fitting shoes can impair foot growth, as well as being painful to wear.
Leather school shoes should be your first choice due to the flexible, breathable nature of the material. And with leather school shoes costing just £15 at George, you needn’t worry about the cost of kitting your child out with the best.
Simple Velcro strap school shoes are best for young children, who may still be getting to grips with laces. And for older boys, leather loafers will mean no time spent faffing around lacing up after PE and games – they can simply slip them on and go!
For girls shoes with a single strap over are popular, and you’ll find some cute designs at ASDA including flowers, bows and butterflies.
When buying new school shoes, either take your child to the store with you or order online with the peace of mind that the George 100 Day Satisfaction Guarantee affords you. Take a look online at how to check the fit yourself, and if the shoes aren’t right, for any reason, simply return them for a full refund.
PE Kit is easily lost but just as easily replaced. Put a two pack of shorts (from £3) and a two pack of T-Shirts (£2) in your actual or virtual shopping basket, plus a pair of plimsolls, and you have a replacement PE kit with change from a tenner!
ASDA make it easy to see your child off to school looking smart and feeling comfortable in well-fitting school shoes and uniform. And at the low supermarket prices you won’t mind kitting them out mid-year quite so much.
