Who's this for? Minimal internal stitching and seams, means these are perfect for sensory/sensitive/fussy feet.
Cleaning: Soft leathers should be treated with care. Spot clean and regularly polish with our Renovating Polish to protect & restore.
What to expect: Due to the PU manufacturing process, upon first use, the sole may have a slight slipperiness to it – never fear – wear them outside on a rough surface and you’re good to go.
Premium Turkish leathers will scuff! Restore with our Renovating Polish.

Part of the Skobi range for sensitive feet, Howard is Holt’s Velcro school shoe alternative.

Constructed in Turkey from super soft, premium, breathable leathers and cemented on a feather-light PU sole, Howard has been specifically designed by Paediatric Podiatrists for the fussiest of feet.

With minimal internal stitching and seams, and a gently contoured removable leather innersole, Howard assists in improving proprioception and tactile feedback underfoot. Howard offers a slip-resistant reinforced heel counter for additional rear-foot control.

    I wont be buying any other brands of school shoes for my 3 girls anymore. Ordered one pair for my 10 year old who says they are comfy and she loves the style. I am very happy knowing they are doing everything she needs to support her growing feet. We have had trouble in the past. Time to order for the other girls now.

    My yr3 boy wore these school shoes for a full year at 3days/week. They are great style and he received many compliments. They look so good, he could wear them with trousers to his confirmation/church etc.
    They didn't rub or cause any blisters when new. After the yr of wear, no stitching is undone, sole still in good condition, he's just outgrown them.
