School shoes sure take a beating. Girls wear them five days a week for the entire school year.
But it isn’t just unbuckled t-bars that fall apart. Girls also destroy laceups, like this pair of ‘Jezra’ shoes by Wilde.
What happens when a T-bar school shoe crosses paths with a Mary Jane? We have seen this before. But this time it is the ‘Johanna’ by Wilde. It is a standard buckle up t-bar school shoe, but without the ‘t’ strap.
Compare with the almost identical Gro-Shu ‘Bond’, and the ‘Jade’ also by Wilde – which differs by having a velcro strap and closed toe.
Wilde makes a range of Harrison-styled school shoes for girls.
Their t-bar school shoe is called ‘Jenny’ while the laceup version is called ‘Jezra’.
The ‘Jenny’ t-bar comes in three styles: smooth finish black, hi-shine black, and hi-shine brown.
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.
T-bar school shoes sure take a beating. Girls wear them five days a week for the entire school year!
There are many reasons to get your t-bar shoes buckled up. You won’t shuffle your feet along the ground. That wears out the soles of your shoes.
If you don’t you’ll get holes in the bottom, and wet feet in winter
Shuffling alters your gait, bending your shoe more than normal. Keep at it, and eventually the stitching between the sole and the shoe upper will break.
All that shuffling can scuff also the toes of the shoe.
Shoe polish can’t fix the worst scuffing.
Incorrectly fitted shoes mean feet slide around inside the shoe, wearing it away.
Lunchtimes spent sitting crosslegged on the asphalt result in scuffed patches on the side of the shoe.
But keeping your shoes buckled up won’t prevent the strap breaking.
With nothing left to do up, this pair of Wilde t-bar school shoes is destined for a life of shuffling around unbuckled.
Any colour you like as long as it is black – that is what the original Harrison t-bar school shoes are known for. But Wilde, a manufacture of very similar t-bar shoe, you can pick any colour you like.
In 2012 they released their ‘Jenny’ t-bar school in six new colours.
Pity they don’t seem to be available any more. 😦
