  • 4 stars out of 5Traditional Clarks shoe

    SIMON, fort william

    I have bought some of the 'newer' trainer type shoes recently and have not been hugely impressed, not bad but not quite up to expecations. These however are a return to the quality I expect from Clarks shoes, are comfortable and practicable for a 7 year old. They were not his first choice but I insisted that he was getting 'proper' shoes and he is now very happy with them.

    Three years in a row we have bought these for our young teen, even after a full academic year of lunchtime football they still look really good.These shoes really are worth every penny. We will be back next August for another pair.

    Rachel, romney marsh

    I bought these shoes for my 14 year old son. They look smart, fit well, are easy to clean, and so far have stood up well to the tough wear (and football) they are put through on school days. A good buy.

    W, nottingham

    Had to order these for home delivery as the width we needed wasn't available in the shop. Ordered late Friday evening and the shoes arrived Monday, very speedy service. Shoes fit well, look smart and seem very sturdy. Hopefully they will last a while.

  • 5 stars out of 5School shoe.

    I purchased a pair of utility boy black leather shoes for my 12 year old son who is very difficult to fit with very narrow feet. The E fitting was the best I had come across for a long time- a repeat purchase on the next size down which stood up well to months of football playing.

    A good shoe but too highly priced for school shoes.

  • 4 stars out of 5Practical school shoe

    Although peer pressure dictates that skate shoes should be worn we have always maintained that a proper fitting school shoe is smarter, more practical and far more hard-wearing than the average bargain "trainer that your child can get away with wearing to school without getting into trouble". And the Utility Boy BL doesn't fail to deliver, although my one criticism (and what stops the shoe getting a 5 out of 5) is the price. Clarks know that parents have little other choice of retailer if they want a decent shoe for their child and yet it doesn't stop them pricing them in the range of many expensive designer shoes, and children's shoes are exempt from VAT! If they made their pricing a little more competitive -without skimping on quality - then maybe more people would choose the traditional shoe over fashion trainers.

    The store did not have these shoes in stock so an order was placed online and they arrived within a couple of days. They are practical, hard wearing and comfortable.

  • 5 stars out of 5New school shoes in a hurry

    I went to the Farnham store today to collect a pair of these shoes that I had ordered. Toni served us and she was a credit to your company. Nothing was too much trouble and she managed to find the right size and width for my son. It took at least 30 mins for him to decide which pair he wanted and which one was the most comfortable. After re measuring his feet Toni advised us of how as you go up a size the width changes and although we didn't buy the pair we had ordered we had the same style just in a smaller and narrower fit. I hope she gets a pat on the back from the boss as she deserves it! As for the shoes well they are just the usual high quality that we expect from a pair of clarks shoes! Many thanks Toni you made my sons day! He wasn't feeling very well but he said how much he had liked getting his shoes today!! All the best Jo Crosson

    Very good, smart, formal school shoes. I would recommend them to any parent. I am disappointed that Clarks do not offer this shoe in smaller sizes. Children need to learn to tie shoe laces in primary school so that they can develop independence and maturity. Many primary school age children are too small for these shoes. Please make them available in smaller sizes so that children can develop this skill.

  • 5 stars out of 5Great, hard-wearing shoes.

    Carol, morecambe

    My 15 year old son loves these shoes. We buy much the same style every year from Clarks and they last the whole year. They are a little expensive (£45.00) but as they do last so long, it's not so bad. They clean up well and just keep on going. Nice looking, tough and durable. Plus a picky teenager is happy with them! What more could you ask for from a school shoe?

  • 5 stars out of 5Brilliant school shoes.

    Margaret, cheadle

    These have been the best school shoes that I have bought - need to buy a bigger size now, but they look smart are sturdy and easy to clean. Bought a pair for another grandson last month as I always buy Clarks. We were all brought up wearing Clarks and I would thoroughly recommend these for fast growing boys' feet. Hope they still will have these for when he goes to secondary school next year. Well done as usual Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5A great, smart looking school shoe

    Lynne, bournemouth

    My son has had these shoes before and have just worn out. So time for a new pair. We always go to the same shop and if we are lucky it is the same lady there that has dealt with my sons shoes since the very first pair he had over 11years ago. We were happy to see the lady was there today and with the new and very exciting sizing machines to play with my son soon found a new pair of shoes. As you can tell he chose the same style as before, he said they are great and he has no trouble tying laces as the lady last time shown him how to the them up so they will not come undone. Once again no trouble with getting a new pair of shoes and always happy and friendly staff.

    Arrived on time. Shoes comfortable and look good quality. Quite a heavy shoe to wear-hopefully this will mean that they will last!
