Term School Shoes are the latest edition to the Term range of shoes and if they are anything like their wellies then I know they are going to exceptionally high quality, durable and last well so I was keen to try them out with my little boy. We tried the Term Chivers style with a double velcro opening which I knew would be easy and simple to operate for my boy as he’s not yet comfortable with laces.
On first inspection I could tell that these shoes look really durable, like they’ll last hopefully as long as my child fits them. They have flexible thermo rubber soles and a comfortable insole featuring cushioning for day long comfort. Also a soft collar in the heel area protects against sores and rubs. I like the way the sole comes high up around the heel and front of the toe area to protect against scuffs and will withstand play and tumble in the playground and after school visits to the park. The uppers are made from high grain leather made to last and will protect through various weather and scuffing.
My boy has a wide fitting on his feet so we did go up to the next size to accommodate both this and a little longevity in the shoes life but I have to say these are generous in width and fit him really well. He has very sensitive skin and is fussy about fit on shoes, clothes and every little label has to be cut out but first these fitted his foot like a glove, no complaints, no worries and he wanted to wear them straightaway! (If you’d known how many pairs of non school shoes we’d tried on recently but he’s refused to let me buy!!!)
So our thoughts on the Term Chivers boys school shoes?
We love them! To be honest we can’t fault them so far. On the first feel and look you can tell they are a quality piece and so far they are lasting incredibly well. There are no signs of wear, they look strong and durable, the stitching is tight and I’m confident these shoes will outwear any previous brands that we’ve tried. Yes, these are expensive shoes but are inline to the couple of market leaders in school shoes so I think this is definitely a top competitor that you need to check out as personal experience with some of the other suggest that these could even be better!
Why not try them for yourself and see? They are a solid stable shoe that is appealing to look at, comfortable to wear and easy for a child to secure – what more could you ask for? If you are looking for school shoes for September than I highly recommend that you check Term out.
