    This is a completely false thread. Did none of you read the exact same thread when (it) was wanting to buy black plimsolls for (it's) son because they were black, therefore fit school criteria.

    But (it) decided to buy female black plimsolls from - (let me guess) - Primark!!!

    I never believed that post to be real and nor do I this one.

    Really?
    Well, what is MSE coming to?
    I think I need to lie down in a darkened room.

    OP, make sure you check your daughters lovely new school boots for free gifts, otherwise she could get more than just ruined feet!

    With an attitude like that, I'm imagining a Vicky Pollard type of person rockin up to the school gates.........

    When I was 12 I had no say about my footwear for school. I'm going back nearly 30 years ago, but I still had to wear what my mother bought me. She paid for them so I had to.
    Different if your child was buying them with her pocket money as that's her choice. Although the type of boots you are talking about are not a sensible choice for school, especially come winter time.
    If she doesn't like what you were originally planning on buying, well that's tough titty! She will just have to go with no shoes on at all.

    This below is what annoys me the most, irritates me when I see people walking in boots that end up like that!!!!

    We are arriving and departing all at the same time."

    1) how her feet are doing
    2) how the boots are standing up to regular wear

    You've failed the most basic test as:

    1) you started this thread exactly one week ago, on Monday
    2) you bought her boots last Tuesday
    3) your daughter was going to begin wearing them the following day (Wednesday)

    Therefore she cannot have been wearing them for over a week

    Wednesday to Monday is not "over a week", no matter how you phrase it.

    Best buy her some foot deodorant next time you're shopping - they will stink after being encased in synthetic fur for (nearly) a week.

    My 6 year old wears them and they last all winter, despite her abusing them, but are probably out of the OPs price range at 10 times the cost of Primarni Ugg knock-offs.
