Speedy and lean like its namesake, Thorpe is the perfect all terrain Velcro school shoe where city meets sport.

Constructed in Turkey from a durable textile and leather upper, Thorpe has a reinforced toe-bumper that has been twice stitched to ensure maximal integrity.

Offering moderate stability and support, Thorpe is the perfect compromise for kids who want a sportier look, comfort underfoot, and a more durable alternative to the classic lace up or Velcro school shoe.

    We bought a pair of these for my son as he is notorious for scuffing the toes out of leather shoes within a few hours of wearing them and I predicted he may do the same in a pair of leather school shoes. So far they are amazing and still look brand new after a week.

    He has quite a formal school uniform so these were the perfect mix of a jogger style and a shoe that looks a little more formal. He also has a very long foot for a five year old and we often have issues fitting him around the ankles as shoes that fit length wise slip, these fit very well and don't move at all.

    These shoes are amazing quality! My son is so rough on his school shoes and these lasted us the whole year which is amazing!

    We have another pair for this year and plan on using Skobi for all our kids in the future!

    Fitted this shoe today for patient with neuromuscular issues, worked well.

    Foot clearance was an issue long term for the patient and struggling to find good quality shoes to house his AFO's.

    Would recommend.

    Really well made and designed with tough rounded souse to protect the front of the shoe.

    I highly recommend them especially if you have an active child that knocks about their shoes in play!
