Back to school with Term Footwear

Chivers Term Footwear

I didn’t, and still don’t, want to be that parent who parents by gender. With my first-born I appreciated how ‘boys’ toys are better than girls. I steered toward neutral. I tried to dress her in trousers, but she really doesn’t suit them. And the world turns.Term Footwear ChiversThe boys in school has been a revelation. With my daughter I saw no need to replace shoes mid-year, only the pressure of the fashion-conscious winter boot.

With the boys, well, it feels as though there was no choice. The wear and tear on the quality shoes I came to associate with my daughter was challenged. Trying out Chivers by Term FootwearAnd it’s been odd, to go against a brand which has been a part of our family history. But whether it be a break or a never look back moment, well, all the best platitudes are built. But where school shoes are concerned, and at that, school shoes are in question, well, there are pennies and pounds to be considered.Term FootwearWe tried and tested the Chivers style by Term Footwear. They are great. Initially the chosen child didn’t like them. They were “too firm”. He wore them on a weekend walk and since then they are his absolute favourites.

Term Footwear does seem a little tougher to break in, which I think is a good thing, tough leather, tough style.

But like most good shoes, once broken in they are inseparable with the wearer. And this is so true. 

I love seeing B reach for these shoes in the morning, that it’s his choice to wear them.

And with a little elbow grease (my polishing skills), they’re remaining fit for the daily use of a 6 year-old.

    Great post, love your photography. Breaking in shoes for children is always tough…but those leather shoes looks well worth it once they are broken in.
