Half Term Clear Out – Do My Children Need New Shoes?

Have you got a wardrobe bursting at the seams? Or a spare room full of children’s clothes that no longer fit? Here at Clinkards, we think half term is the perfect time to have a clear out, as not only will it make way for new items as your children grow, but it can also help others in need who are less fortunate.

It’s quite easy to tell if clothing doesn’t fit as you can see just from looking, but footwear is slightly harder to judge. We have put together some handy at-home measuring tips and tricks, so you can decide whether you should keep their old pair or purchase something new. You can even make it fun as our printable measuring gauge can be cut and coloured in – a great activity to add to your lockdown crafts.

Now, if you’ve decided that it’s a new pair of kicks your little ones need, then we have got the perfect sporty sets for the warmer season ahead. But remember, if you no longer need the old pair pass them onto to someone who might as a good will gesture.

Below are our new season top picks for kids’ footwear.


Sparkle and shine in this sporty little pair of Converse Allstar. The 2V girls infant canvas shoes are practical with their iconic chunky sole and rip tape straps, and perfectly pretty with their sequin synthetic uppers. Wear them for a playdate or dress them up with a cute little dress, super versatile and they’ll keep your girl’s tiny feet comfortable throughout wear.

If your little boy has out-grown his favourite pair, the Skechers Go Run 600 Baxtux toddler trainers are a great new addition. Built with active little feet in mind, the trainers are crafted from durable textile and synthetic material, with speed laces aiding maximum flexibility. Have your little one chose his favourite colour combination, and take advantage of the non-marking sporty sole (less cleaning for parents).



The perfect colour palette for a sporty princess, the Nike Star Runner girl’s youth trainers would make a great addition to your daughters’ collection, especially if they’re converting into youth shoes for the first time. With lightweight and flexible properties, the trainers can be easily sled on and off and secured with a rip tape strap, upholding the needs of energetic teen feet.

The Converse Star Player 3V youth canvas shoes are a trendy trainer you can buy again and again, as their classic style never goes out of fashion. Does your son no longer fit into his favourite Allstar’s but loves their design? The 3V are available in infant and youth so there’s no sad faces when you need to buy a bigger pair. Packed with practicality, the shoes offer long lasting comfort.
