Shoes must be done up (tied or buckled) so that they do not become a safety issue. Specifically, after a reasonable number of warnings, girls whose t‐bar shoes are not buckled will be asked to purchase a new pair of lace‐up school shoes.

Wilde – another t-bar styled Mary Jane shoe

This is the ‘Jade’ by Wilde: another t-bar styled Mary Jane shoe. This time the ‘T’ strap is replaced by a a single strap, secured with velcro.

The shoe has the same contrast heel and stitching are the classic t-bar school shoe. But it lacks the toe cutouts, instead having a closed toe like a t-bar styled laceup shoe.

What happens when a T-bar school shoe crosses paths with a Mary Jane? You get the Gro-Shu ‘Bond’.

The cutouts in the toe of the shoe are the same as the iconic Harrison t-bar. The contrast heel and stitching is the same. The back of the heel is the same. The only difference is that the ‘T’ of the t-bar strap is missing. So it is a Mary Jane shoe.
