Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for school. Excellent value, just right for school. Love that they come in both black and white. 19 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed with the quality Bought this for my daughter's PE, expecting it would be good as all the reviews said. But sadly it was not. On the first day, she wore it for short time only indoor, so nothing like she had rain or water on them, but it left quite bad stains all over her white socks. I was quite shocked how bad it was and had to throw the socks away as it didn't come off clean. Fitting and other quality seems to be fine but I can't bear stains on the white socks each PE time and had to find alternative from nearby supermarket. Wasted one pair of socks and also money for the shoes!! Wish I could have returned them. 04 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for PE These are great for primary school PE. We're working our way through the sizes! 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pumps Each time my daughter outgrows her school pumps I buy these again in the next size. She finds them easy to put on herself and comfortable. They are good quality, wear well and will be passed onto her younger brother so worth buying these rather than cheaper alternatives. The only improvement i would like is for somewhere inside to write her name as the inside is black and being school pumps shoe stickers don't tend to stay on long enough. 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than other supermarket offerings Great JL quality as normal. Had originally bought another supermarkets version and they didn't last long. These have a much better fastening design and are just much better made. I didn't find them that narrow and the sizes appear to be true to me. 27 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Firm and comfortable Plimsolls I bought them for my grandson, four year old. They are firm but at the same time very comfortable. He likes them. 04 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value footwear for my daughters P.E lesson A good value for money plimsole. Slightly generous in sizing so good idea to check the size below for fit. Have bought these since my daughter started school and have never had cause for complaint. 30 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rip Tape Plimsolls Excellent quality and value, my grandson is delighted with them because the tape lets him put them and so quickly to get out and play football. 30 September 2014
