As children grow up there are key lessons they have to learn; equality, fairness, respect and discipline. The school uniform and wearing only black school shoes has played a major part in this ethos for many generations and in many countries around the world – a tradition we would like to continue.

Children’s feet grow fastest during the first 10 years of life, and when they’re in school for 30 hours a week, it’s important that their shoes are suited for the job. Froddo school shoes are made from premium quality leather with padded ankles, arch support and toe protection, they are anatomically shaped, lightweight and flexible to provide ultimate comfort.

By listening to what children want in a shoe and then designing around that with the help of pediatricians and orthopedics, you can be sure that the features of Froddo school shoes are functional, durable and comfortable.
