In my opinion Kickers are about the sturdiest shoe you can get for a child. They tend to cost £££'s because of their reputable name in high quality footwear. We have found a cracker of a deal on a black leather pair: The Kickers Lo Vel I Core Classic School Shoes are just £15 in junior sizes 5,6,8 and 9 at Amazon. As they are over £10 you also get FREE Amazon Super Saver Delivery. What a bargain!
I think you would struggle to get a leather pair of shoes from anywhere for just £15 delivered never mind ones with that famous Kickers tab on them. The sizes available will probably cater for children around nursery and early primary school age, which is a shame as these are a real nice school shoe. The other sizes are priced at £40, why? I haven't a clue.
These have a 100% leather upper and inside, with a sole made of THICK rubber. They would make a nice shoe for a little one as they are very smart and easy to get on and fasten with the velcro straps.
These will sell out so don't hand around if you fancy a pair.
