The Best Of Back To School

The busy back to school period is well under way as the end of the summer holidays approaches. Did I hear a cheer from all you mums?

With our years of experience and expertise, we are here to help with the school shoe shop! Whether its support or durability you are looking for, or whether fashion is the key criteria, The Golden Boot has a range of brands and styles in stock to keep everyone happy.

Spending all day in the shoes, walking to and from school, support is one of the most important features after comfort for your childs foot.

Kickers boot

Kickers Kilo Core boot, fits higher up the ankle to provide maximum support. The singular velcro strap makes it easy for your child to fasten the shoe tightly to ensure the best fit and support. The boot is available in sizes 25 (7) to 35(2.5). We tend to fit up slightly in the kickers boots to give extra growing room. The shoes have a rounded silhouette perfect for a wider foot.

 Startrite Samba. This girls shoe from Startrite is available in all sizes and width fittings. The shoe is fairly deep making it perfect for children requiring orthotics. The super soft leather and leather lining stretches with ease fromthe first wear to provide maximum comfort. The elongated heel stiffeners are used in all of Startrites shoes to help the shoe keep its original shape, therefore, providing support even after the shoe has softened.


With very active children, durability is another important factor to consider when purchasing your children’s school shoes. For many boys it is essential the shoe has a rubber scuff resistant toe bumper, to ensure the shoes last, even with playing football on the school playground.

Our most durable school shoe; Geox Savage is perfect for your active son. The large rubber toe bumper will resist all the scuffs and scrapes to keep the shoe looking new. The breathable sole unit absorbs and expels sweat droplets without letting water in, and keeps feet warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. The deep shoe is perfect for a G width fitting.  All Geox shoes come with a free Geox beat bracelet (while stock lasts), which records your voice and flashes to sound: very popular with the children.

A durable rubber toe bumper is becoming more and more important for your little princesses as well; the Alicia and Princess Serena from Startrite have improved scuff resistance with the rubber sole extended up the front of the shoe, alongside all other key features from Startrite. The shoe is available in half sizes and all width fittings.

Whilst children are required to wear school uniforms, it seems the shoes are used as an expression of their fashion sense.

With increased television marketing, little girls have become obsessed with the features of the Lelli Kelly school shoes and free make-up iPad. We stock 4 different styles of Lelli Kelly black patent school shoes; Kimberly, Perrie, Adele and Nicole. Adele and Nicole are curently are most popular selling Lelli Kellys, due to their detachable bow hair clip and changing straps. Lelli Kellys now come in different width fittings so it’s easier to get the perfect fit.

For older girls, Erica Lace/No Ties is our most popular school shoe. The brogue lace up styling is a move away from the classic bar shoe. The closed shoe is perfect for the cold winter months. Available from size 13- 9 and in all width fittings, the shoe is perfect for many.

 Our year on year favourites are continuing to rise in popularity this summer to be our number one best seller yet again.

Deaton is our favourite for boys; the classic, simple styling and leather uppers make the shoe breathable, water resistant and very easy to polish up. The shoe is available in half sizes and all width fittings, making it fairly easy to gain a perfect fit. Deaton is our go to shoe.

Keep Calm…It’s Back To School Time !

keep calmIt’s half term again and the shop is ready, the staff are prepped and the shoe boxes are piled high. The Golden Boot is ready for Back to School and we are here to give your our top tips to make this manic time a little less stressful.


Tip Number 1: Don’t be put off by how busy the shop looks. We use a successful, tried and tested, ticketing machine method. So grab a ticket and you’ll be seen to in no time. Even if it seems there is a large queue, we’ve more staff than ever this year so you’ll be seen to with a smile very quickly.


Tip Number 2: Don’t forget your socks! With this lovely English weather we are experiencing, a lot of socks can be forgotten. The fitting process is a lot easier for our staff if your child is wearing their school socks so we can get the perfect fit.


Tip Number 3: Avoid the rush. For us, the last two weeks in August are our busiest. If you can come in earlier, we will be sure to give plenty of growing room, given there is another month until school starts. If you want to brave the last minute rush, early morning and late afternoon are our quietest periods.


Tip Number 4: Check the school list, for everything you need. With a large selection of plimsoles, trainers and football boots, The Golden Boot really is your one stop school shoe shop. Check the school uniform lists before you arrive so you know exactly what you need. With our £5 off trainer offer with Clarks when you buy any school shoe, it’s best to get it all at once.


With our top tips in mind, you’ll hopefully have a stress free experience this Back to School. We hope to see you soon!
