    Jane, melton mowbray

    My son has been wearing these shoes for 6 weeks and on both soles a hole has appeared in exactly the same place on both shoes. Also on the right shoe the stitching has come away. At the top on the seam. Not what I would expect from Clarks shoes. Feedback from Clarks: We’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase. We do thoroughly test all our products before they go on sale, so the issue you describe seems unusual. Please return to one of our stores with proof of purchase so the manager can look into it for you. We will happily refund or replace any items deemed as faulty.

  • 1 stars out of 5Very Dissapointed

    Bought these shoes for my son in September. They have come apart at sides on both shoes. Have always purchased my children's school shoes from Clarks and had no problems before. Took shoes back to Clarks and was told because I had had them for six months their policy was that there was nothing they could do. Really not happy with this and am emailing head office to see if they can do anything, but I would never purchase this shoe again. Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase. We value all our customer feedback so thank you for your comments which have been fed back to our team.

    NOREEN, glasgow

    After years of buying school shoes from Clarks I am very disappointed with this pair of shoes, after only a few months of wearing them I have discovered a hole on the shoe just below the stitching. I no longer have the receipt so feel very annoyed having to go out and spend more money on shoes. I expected at the amount of money spent on these shoes to have lasted a good few months more! There must be a design fault with these shoes. Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase.

  • 1 stars out of 5very badly made shoes

    I'm writing this review because I've just discovered a big whole on my boys shoe, and I can believe it as I bought them in April this year. For the price of these shoes I was expecting a much longer wear. I'm so disappointed and upset with Clarks. Feedback from Clarks: We are very proud of the quality of our products and to ensure this all our new designs and materials are tested before they go on sale.  If you are disappointed with any of our products please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate.

    son really wanted velcro not laces this time these were only ones that fitted him as he has high instep and wide feet but skinny ankles and a lot of the velcro shoes fit much higher on ankles

    Fantastic product quality with unrivaled customer service. Thank you. Not only do I buy all the childrens shoes at Clarks in Street but most of mine as well. Comfort, style, quality, and amazing advice.

    Vickie from walsall

    Very good quality. Good grips on the bottom. Smart for school and Boy's Brigade uniform. My son is very happy with them. Laces are sometimes not practical for younger children so the velcro is definitely a good idea.

    I always come to Clarks to buy shoes for my children. The prices are a little higher than in your average shoe shop, but the quality is amazing and the shoes always last a really long time!

  • 5 stars out of 5Quality fitting

    Noreen from ballykinler

    Fits really well. Feels good around the ankle and because of the velcro fitting you can easily ensure that the width is just right - especially for boys who hate laces! Much better service online than i received at the Clarks shop. Fast delivery too.

    These shoes look great when you buy them. Unfortunately this doesn't last long. After one term at school the sticking is coming undone and there are holes in the shoes. Thought I had picked up a dodgy pair, however the replacement only last 3 months as well. Feedback from Clarks: We’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase.

  • 1 stars out of 5Not lasted

    I brought these shoes at the start of term just a few months ago, they have not lasted. The stitching has come undone completely so there is now a massive hole in the front of the shoe. I will be attempting to return them to my local store tomorrow but not sure that I still have the receipt so will have to wait and see. Just wanted to avoid other people making the same mistake as when I first brought them I was also very pleased and would have rated them highly.

  • 5 stars out of 5Marie from Larne

    My son loves these velcro fastening shoes and I'm happy too as they're tough and I'm confident they'll last the full school year as always! And nothing was any problem for the staff at Clarks in Larne when my son went up a shoe size between end of July and end of August! The shoes were ordered online & delivered to my home, free of charge, on the Friday prior to starting the new school year on the Monday. Fantastic!

  • 5 stars out of 5Long lasting & good value

    I bought these shoes last year for my son's 1st year of secondary school from my local branch and have to say they have way outlasted my expectations, so much so that when I took him yesterday to be re-measured he only wanted the same ones again. Let's hope the new ones last just as long.

  • 3 stars out of 5Hole in my shoe too

    I too have discovered hole in the side of my son's shoes where the sole and leather meet - a very neat gap has developed and not what I expect from Clarks shoes within 6 months of wear. Must be a design fault as his feet have only grown half as size. The Manageress said that Clarks will replace them so I am happy with that. Apart from that, a nice thick sole is appropriate for cold wintry weather providing insulation and good grip!

  • 5 stars out of 5Great School Shoes - Perfect Fit

    Sue, holt

    Ideal school shoes for my 11 year old son, had his feet measured in store and had shoes delivered to home. Great fit and lovely shoe. Nice solid feel shoe with the benefit of velcro to stop the continual laces undone look! Clarks as always offer great fit and service shame kids shoes are so expensive now especially the school ones which will need to be replaced quite often because of wear and tear!!

    After having a disaster with shoes from another store (should have known better!) I learned my lesson and went back to clarks. Very pleased with these shoes, they're well made, a great fit and are made to last - hopefully :)

  • 5 stars out of 5Excellent shoes.

    lynsey, wigan

    My son has been wearing these shoes for the past school year and he has asked for the same style again next term. The style is very fashionable my son said they are really comfortable and they have stood the test of time being worn to play football every playtime. Well done. Will be buying again for September.

  • 5 stars out of 5Excellent

    Yes the shoes are great - well made, solid and dependable but the store staff deserve a mention here. It was incredibly busy - due to time of year - but they remained cheerful, helpful and did not rush you at all. Barnstaple Clarks staff should be congratulated.

    David from clacton-on-sea

    Ideal shoe for child going in and out of doors where shoes have to be removed as easy to put on and take off without having to struggle with laces. Shoes are comfortable right from the start. Child also likes the style. Seem to popular at school.

    Ordered these shoes into the store from the catalog. This was a free service and it only took three days for the shoes to arrive. Very pleased. The shoes were fitted in the store and only then did I have to pay. Great convenient service.
