Getting school shoes for the new school year is a part of every summer holiday.

But after spending hours finding the perfect fit that your child likes, no parent wants that moment of realising their shoes are too tight after a growth spurt.

To help, Clarks is introducing an offer that means parents can swap shoes for free if their child grows out of them any time between purchase and February next year.

The shoe specialists are so confident in their fitting abilities, they’ll offer a guarantee with any full price back to school kids shoes, including school shoes, school boots, plimsoles and school sports shoes.

Don’t go looking for last year’s worn out shoes with hopes of simply swapping for a pair for this year though – the offer is only for shoes bought between 13 July and 14 September this year.

For shoes above an infant size 10, you’ll have until 28 February 2021 to swap them if they are too small.

For smaller kids who wear infant sizes 7 to 9.5, you have until November, because obviously their feet grow faster.

The shoes have to be fitted by a trained Clarkes fitter in store so unfortunately, it’s not available for shoes bought online.

You need to keep the receipt when you buy them as proof of purchase in case you want to swap them before February.

If they are too small, your child’s feet will have to be checked by a fitter and if they are satisfied, you can swap for a new pair.

You can choose any pair up to the same value as the original pair.

You can find the full terms and conditions for the offer on the Clarks website.
