Infant School Memories

One image which sums up infant school for me...

I used to love shoes like these!

I think this particular style was discontinued in the late 1970's but I remember wearing shoes in a similar style when I started school in the mid 1980's.

We always used to go to the K Shoes Factory Shop in Kendal during the summer (on our way up to Scotland for a holiday) and I used to trawl the shelves looking for the perfect pair of little red t-bar shoes to wear to school in September.
 
I still love T-bar shoes now and even wore a pair on my wedding day.

Anyone know where you can get shoes like these in adult sizes?

  1. I had shoes like those, too, and tall K boots for the winter so that I could trek through the snow and stay warm.

    I am sure I saw shoes like this in Evans fairly recently, but I'm a handbag girl so don't pay that much attention to shoes!

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
