    School shoes 3 14th Sep 17 at 12:54 PM
    Hi my son started secondary school a few weeks ago. His school recomends plain black lace up pumps as an alternative to school Shoes. My son wanted to wear pumps as school shoes so i bought him a pair from Primark they only cost 3. How much did you spend on school shoes ??
    His school uniform policy is
    School jumper with school logo
    School polo shirt
    School trousers
    School shoes / plain black canvas pumps

    The last time I called this person out I got criticised for doing so. Clearly some people feel this kind of tripe is valuable on here.

    Do you think the OP has a job with Primark raising their profile ?

    Now, which onesie is in vogue from Primark this year, the HP pj's are a bit expensive for my liking.

    It was on a previous thread, I was told to exit it if I didnt like the fact that someone was repeatedly posting about school shoes and uniform.

    Well, I don't know why that was (or who it was).

    I think we're all pretty much in agreement about the subject.

    Children shouldn't be wearing cheap, poor quality shoes from Primark. It's a false economy, OP.
