Timberland Shoes

So it's that time during the Summer holidays that I start to think about buying big J's uniform. It is usually quite simple as we buy most of it from the school shop, however we do usually have some trouble finding shoes for him as he is very fussy and a typical teenager. As little J will be starting school in September I decided to be super organised and start buying his uniform early as I didn't know what to expect especially if he took after his brother when shoe shopping. Jake Shoes got in touch recently and offered us the chance to try out a pair of shoes from their back to school range. This was perfect as I really dislike shopping for school shoes as it's always manic, doing it online meant I could browse from the comfort of my own sofa. 

There was quite a selection on Jake Shoes including lots of well know brands such as Kickers, Geox and Timberland. You can search the school range by brand, young  boys or older boys. I searched through the young boys selection and was pleased to see most of the shoes available in this category were velcro fastening. We haven't begun to teach little J to tie laces yet infact even now big J were velcro fastening. They are so much easier to slip on and off when needed.

We narrowed our choice down to two pairs, one Kickers and one Timberland. Due to sizes available we went for the Timberland Woodman Park. The ordering process was very easy and they arrived quickly. 

It's hard to imagine little J in school shoes because he's always in trainers or more casual shoes. When he saw them he smiled and said 'oooohhh' so I think he's impressed.

They are made with quality leather, velcro fastening and are cushioned inside. They look durable and perfect for school.

What We Loved

Lots of choice including well known brands.

Easy to browse using categories.

Free next working delivery if spending over £40.

The shoes we chose are great quality with velcro fastening which is a must for little J.

If online shopping isn't your thing, there are 2 stores in Manchester and Stockport.

What Could Improve

Nothing, everything was fine.

I am so pleased how easy it was to order online but if you would rather shop instore, Jake Shoes do have 2 branches in Manchester and Stockport. You can view more information by visiting Jake Shoes.



  1. thanks for the sharing :)

  2. It is a Responsibility choosing school shoes. As we do want to be able to provide footwear which is healthy ( not uncomfortable, or damaging to the child's feet), practical and durable. Maybe Chiropodist's and / or Podiatrist's should be available to Parents, Children, Carer's, Etc at this Responsible and Exciting time :- Child starting, or Returning to school.

    I Wonder how Prince William and his wife Kate will be dealing with the task of preparing for Prince George starting school. They tend to have access to lots of Advisors, can Access Private Health Care e.g. Podiartist, etc. Though we have been informed via the media that Private Health Care may not be any better than NHS ( National Health Service).

    Hoping all children, parents, Carers, family and friends have positive experiences in regards to the children starting/ returning to school.
