Start-Rite Motivate Boys Shoe Reviews

Product Tested By Gemma Rood – Joshua 4 Years 6 Months

Gemma Awarded The Start-Rite Motivate Shoe 5/5

My initial impression was very positive. The shoes looked well-made and smart. My son despite being quite fussy with footwear liked the look of these. The design of the shoe is both smart and practical. The black leather exterior gives it a classic look, suitable for various occasions including school and casual outings. I liked the fact that they looked like they would keep the foot dry but were also breathable. They fitted nicely but did slip a bit at the back. My child reported that the shoes were comfortable and he was happy to run around in them straight away which was a positive sign. The double rip tape fastening was effective in keeping the shoes securely in place, and the removable insole was a great addition for added comfort. So far the shoes have lived up to their promise of durability. I can’t comment on this further as my son prefers to live in crocs in the hotter weather so they haven’t yet had a considerable amount of wear. It was difficult to tell whether the padded ankle made a difference to my son compared to other shoes. The leather and textile linings did contribute to breathability, preventing excessive sweating in the hot weather. These were worn about once a week. The shoes were primarily worn when out at the weekends, particularly if the weather was wet and summer shoes were not appropriate. My child particularly liked the rip-tape. The shoes are undeniably high quality. The materials and craftsmanship are evident. I would definitely buy these in the next size up when these ones get too small. They are a practical and comfy shoe perfect for school. I would gladly recommend these shoes to friends and family due to their comfort, durability, and overall quality. I am very happy with this product as it was not only practical but comfortable too. As a parent, comfortable well-fitting shoes for my child are very important and I am very impressed by both the fit and comfort of these shoes. My overall experience with this shoe has been excellent. Despite having limited wear, it was evident that the shoes offer a balance between style, comfort, and durability, making them an ideal choice for children. Gemma Rood – Joshua 4 Years 6 Months

Sarah Awarded The Start-Rite Motivate Shoe 5/5

It was well packaged, looked sturdy and good quality. I like that they’re suitable for school and the Velcro fastening is easier for him to use. Used the size calculator online and the fit just right. They were comfier than other school shoes, but not as comfy as trainers. The Velcro fasteners were great, as he can’t tie laces yet, so more secure for him. He’s only worn them for about 1 month at school, but they don’t seem as worn as the brands we usually buy in the same amount of time. I was very impressed with the durability of them. Nicholas said they never hurt his feet and he hasn’t complained about them whilst he’s worn them. The internal lining has all stayed in good condition whilst worn, unlike some other shoes he’s had. These have been worn everyday he went to school since receiving them. These were mostly worn at school, but also to go to the shops in the car. My son liked the easy fasten Velcro. I liked the durability of them, we’ve had to replace shoes before outgrown in the past. These shoes are very durable and school suitable. I would buy this shoe. I would recommend for the durability of them. Although more expensive than what we usually buy, these will last longer. They were a good all-rounder shoe, he could use for school and be active in them & will definitely consider buying another pair when outgrown. Sarah Burke – Nicholas 8 Years

Product Tested By Victoria Witton – Teddy 6 Years

Victoria Awarded The Start-Rite Motivate Shoe 4/5

We both thought they are a very smart shoe, good weight (not too heavy or clunky) and in a sturdy shoe box. They look like ‘grown up boys’ shoes according to Teddy. They are a good shape, not pointy or too bulky in the toe area. The Velcro are easy for teddy to manage without being too stiff nor too flimsy. Teddy only had a week to wear the shoe as it was then the summer holidays but he said they were a bit big at first. He’s been a size 12 all year and his old pair were worn out hence getting the next half size up. We put an insole in and they were fine. Teddy said they were comfortable and he could ‘run really fast’ in them. Teddy said they were easy to get on and off. He didn’t need to remove the removable in sole. Teddy didn’t wear these for very long as it was the end of the summer term but the shoe was still intact even with a lively 6 year old playing football every day at school! Teddy was able to run freely and kick a football whilst wearing these shoes in the school playground. Teddy didn’t seem to have any problems with the shoes. He has worn these every day since being back at school. My son liked the rip tape straps and so did I as worked really well. It would have been better to see the shoe take full effect over at least half a term/term to comment properly. I would buy these as seem like a good quality, comfortable shoe. I would recommend as if Teddy’s happy with it, then it must mean it’s comfortable!! Great shoe, just need longer to test it in the playground. Teddy is happy with the shoe and it’s been hard getting shoes from him in the past. He says they are like grown up boys shoes which he was happy about. The rip tape is simple, the heels seem comfortable, there is plenty of space in the toe area. The thicker buffers around will be good in the long run hopefully. Victoria Witton – Teddy 6 Years
