Compare the pair of t-bar school shoes – Harrison Indiana to the left, Clarks Ingrid to the right.
Both have similar ‘T’ strap and vamp detail. But the Clarks Ingrid has a much chunkier sole, especially the tread.
Another t-bar school shoe is the ‘Ingrid’ by Clarks. Chunkier in design than the classic Harrison t-bar, the Ingrid is suitable for orthotics, and comes in both ‘junior’ girls and ‘senior’ ladies sizes.
Ingrid is a cult favourite, T-bar girls’ school shoe designed with a buckle fastening and laser cut toe design. Features a leather upper, lining and sock, with a removable innersole shaped for extra comfort.
Girls at Ave Maria College are not permitted to wear t-bar shoes with their school uniform. They wear long white socks with their summer dress, and black stockings or tights with their winter skirt.

T-bars school shoes aren’t just for the classroom – fashionable ladies know how to pull them off with any look.

The T-Bars are actually my school shoes, but I love them enough to wear them out of school as well, generally with frilly/cartoon socks and dresses or skirts!
