Spring/Summer Footwear for Boys

(this is a sponsored post and wasn't written by me)

While the weather outside may well be still drab and dull, we can look forward to the fact that spring will soon be upon us. Whether you’re planning an early summer break away, or are just looking forward to having fun with the kids in the Easter holidays, you’ll want to make sure that they’re kitted out when it comes to footwear.

It might seem like you’ve only just bought the winter boots and the wellingtons, but it’s a fact of life that kids need different shoes for different seasons. Get your boys shoes at George at ASDA and kitting them out doesn’t have to break the bank.

Either take this handy shoe shopping list to the supermarket when doing your weekly shop, or check out the range available at George online – whatever is most convenient for you. The 100 Day George Guarantee means that you can make your purchases with the peace of mind that, should the fit or the style be not quite right for your little monkey, you can take them back without quibble.

Canvas Shoes
Canvas shoes are a good lightweight solution, that is ideal for taking on holiday as they won’t eat too much into the baggage allowance. They also look good both day and night, as a smart or casual solution.

A pair of simple lace-up canvas trainers in black, blue or red cost just £6 at George, or choose a lace free canvas pump for just £5. For evenings, high top canvas trainers in grey look good with chinos or denims.

High Top Trainers
The shoe style of the year, the high top, is sure to still be going strong for spring, so make sure your kids are the coolest around. Younger boys will love the black and white Velcro strap high tops with contrast green trim at George (£9), whereas older boys will like the lace up version (£12).

Playing Out Trainers
One of the best things about the arrival of the warmer weather and the lighter evenings is that kids can play out. Whether the football field, the park or the skate park is their hangout of choice, it’s pretty safe to say that they’ll be getting into plenty of scrapes.

Don’t let them ruin their smart shoes. Pick up playing out trainers for as little as £5 from George, so they don’t have to worry about scuffs or mud.

Sturdy Sandals
A sturdy pair of leather sandals are essential for keeping little feet cool and comfortable, and especially important if taking a hot weather holiday. Get feet measured to prevent toes overflowing over the edge of the shoe, and make sure that sandals chosen are sturdy yet flexible enough to walk, run and play in.

Check with your child’s school as to whether leather sandals are appropriate footwear, for maximum wear from your purchase.

Flip Flops
Another holiday must buy, flip flops can be squashed into even the fullest suitcase or rucksack. They’re ideal for slipping on for the beach or the pool, although they’re not the best for running around in the park in.

Flip flops can be picked up cheaply for just a few pounds, but try to limit the amount of time your child spends wearing them as they’re not the most supportive items of footwear available! The same goes for Croc-style shoes.

When you get your boy’s shoes at ASDA you can kit the kids out with all that they need for the spring/summer season for less than you might think – leaving plenty of spends for summer holidays and fun days out!
