Measure and Fit at Home:
Start-rite believe it's really important to measure a child's feet accurately before buying them every pair of shoes, as ill-fitting shoes can have a serious impact on your child's foot health. To be sure that your child is wearing shoes that fit properly, you can either visit one of the John Lewis stores, where trained staff will measure and fit your child with shoes, or if that's not convenient, use one of our specially developed fitting gauges to help you measure your child's feet at home.

Brand Story

Start-rite's history dates back to 18th century Norwich, where a leather worker called James Smith began offering the first ready-made, off the peg footwear. Following the First World War, the company began to produce footwear specially designed for children, which gave their unique feet room to grow. The name "Start-rite" was first used in the 1920s and the iconic twins logo was introduced a decade later. Start-rite began to focus primarily on children's shoes in 1952 and after extensive research they noted the need for shoes to be fitted by trained people, developed multiple width fittings and introduced their "heel stiffener" to help balance and growth. They received the Royal Warrant in 1955 after supplying the Windsor children with shoes. In recent years they have evolved to use two hundred years expertise to meet the needs and desires of today's children.

Q & As

Rated 2 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by very My daughter loved the style of these shoes and being startright I didn't mind the higher price as I expected them to last. They were utterly worn out after 4 weeks!! Extremely disappointed and will not be buying start right shoes again. I am surprised that John Lewis bother to stock these low quality product! 21 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality These shoes fell apart after only half a term; they are too flimsy for everyday wear. 18 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fell apart These fell apart after 5 weeks of school - total waste of money. 10 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely stylish shoes My daughter loves these shoes; she is in her first year at senior girls school and wanted something akin to a ballet flat. These really fit the bill. Although I thought the shoes look rather flimsy for school they are in fact well-made and robust in true Startrite tradition. They are very well padded on both the inner sole and around the sides of the shoe, and they look pretty! Would definitely recommend. 10 June 2014
