What You Need to Know About Kickers- They are great!
Kickers are one of our favourite brands here at The Golden Boot. This iconic brand has spanned through decades and continues to this day to be a well-loved manufacturer of trendy but supportive boots that are a popular choice for school.
They have a unique style and the classic Kick-Hi school boot sells very well in store and on our website. We stock a range of core colours, as well as some of the more seasonal favourites.
Kickers are one of the best-branded footwear companies to offer support with their rigid ankle cuffs, and are often compared to as a commercial orthotic boot. They are especially good for those with hypo-mobility and children that require extra support and rigidity around their ankles.
The Kick-Hi style is available in both lace-up and Velcro fastening, Kilo, which therefore means a range of foot shapes and support levels are catered for.
Just in time for Back to School, we have stock of black and black patent Kick-Hi boots, which are a suitable substitute for a school shoe in most schools.
The school shoes now feature Microfresh technology which keeps the shoes as fresh as when they were first purchased due to the anti-bacterial lining. Additional features now include in-sock cushion foam technology for added comfort.
Why May they Not Be Suitable for Your Child?
Due to the brand originating in France, the sizes come in continental runs, and therefore only feature whole sizes. This means, unlike Clarks and Startrite, they do not stock half sizes. This also means that there are no width fittings, and so this could be a problem for narrow or wide feet.
All brands vary in size, but we have found that Kickers fit short and therefore it is advisable to go up to the next size.
Although the rigidity of the boot and its leather can offer many supportive benefits, it can take a little longer to wear in when compared to other brands such as Clarks. Additionally, some children who are not used to the highness of the boot may have to get used to this style. We would definitely recommend wearing them around the house and starting to wear them in, in smaller time intervals to overcome this problem.
