Going back to school after an awesome summer is not my favourite time of year but I was a bit more cheerful this September when Dr Martens gifted me some rather awesome shoes to wear.
After a whole half-term my shoes still look pretty shiny and smart, and Mum says that’s nothing short of a miracle. It’s true that I am quite hard on my shoes, we love to play games on the playground and have races, and my shoes usually get really scuffed.
The shoes I was sent are Everley Kids shoes, which look good enough that I sometimes wear them outside of school with jeans. I’ve never said that about a pair of school shoes before.
But they’re really cool.
When they first arrived, I thought they were a bit stiff, and uncomfortable to run in, but after about a week they get a lot more comfortable.
I like that the soles look like they’re made by a 3D printer. I could walk through acid or fire or anything and my feet would be completely fine because Dr Martens are super tough.
These shoes cost £50, which is about £10 more than we usually spend on school shoes, but considering they look as good now as they did when they were brand new, I think they are very good value.
Thanks Dr Martens for sending me these shoes. I give them five stars!
