‘Regular visits to Start-rite professional fitters are important and free.’
At Start-rite, our main focus is on children’s fitted footwear and it’s important to us that we develop shoes that look after children’s feet and help them to develop to their full potential. We’re passionate about producing beautiful quality shoes that will fit children of all ages and include styles and designs that you won’t find on the high-street. Here are some reasons why Start-rite is your best choice when it comes to caring for your children’s feet.
Start-rite shoes come in whole and half length sizes and several width fittings with generous growing room built into every shoe.
Our shoes are made from quality materials to ensure they are hard wearing and comfortable too. They are also wearer trialled and manufactured to a consistent standard to ensure they match up to the wear they will get in real life. We used the highest grade leathers to make our footwear, and our soles are made of flexible, lightweight and durable materials and are non-slip.
Dyed Through Leathers
The majority of Start-rite shoes are made from ‘dyed through’ leather, which means they keep their colour even after scuffing. With a quick polish they’ll look as good as new.
All Start-rite shoes have breathable linings made from either natural leather or from sport lining material, which draw moisture away from the feet and allow it to escape through the surface of the shoe. This provides a healthy, comfortable environment for growing feet.
Many styles incorporate Start-rite’s unique heel support, which extends around the heel and down the inside of the shoe to help counteract pronation (a common condition in childhood where feet roll inwards), improve heel fit and maximise growing room.
We know it’s not easy to keep children’s shoes clean, so some of our shoes (pre-walkers and canvas) are 30°C Machine Washable. Make sure you look out for the symbol.
Start-rite offers a selection of stylish footwear including pre-walkers, first walking shoes, school and out of school shoes, trainers, sandals, boots and wellies.
