Our Must-Have School Shoes for Boys Edit


Back to School has kicked in here at Little Lily & Co, with brand new school shoe styles arriving in store and on our website! We have lots of lovely styles for boys and girls available, but we thought we'd focus on the boys today and show you our favourites from the collection.

Parents of boys know that a hardwearing shoe is key, especially when they're wearing them all day for most of the week! But that doesn't mean you have to compromise on style, as evidenced by our selection of classic and super stylish boys school shoes from brands such as Start-Rite, Geox and Ricosta. Keep reading to see our favourites!
