#WIN all you need for Back to School mayhem!

***Competition now closed – Thank you for entering*** Half term may have only just started and whilst the children are keeping you busy with summer fun we know all you lovely mums are thinking about the dreaded Back to School shop to kit your kids from head to toe in new uniform, shoes, PE kits and all other school attire.

To make it a little easier here at Very HQ we have pulled together some of our favourite picks to bring you the best from some of our leading brands for the additional checklist of ‘Back to School.

One of the most important pieces of the school attire that needs to survive the rough and tumble of the playground is a comfortable and sustainable pair of shoes. There is no other brand that we can think of that will provide everlasting comfort whilst adding rebellion to everyday life with Kickers.  Our favourite is the Patent T-bar for the girls and the Fragma Strap for the boys.

If you’re thinking about footwear the School PE Kit is another part on the checklist. Lacoste have a wide variety of suitable trainers and pumps from toddlers to teenagers in the Back to School colours of Black, Navy, White and Grey. We personally love the fresh look of the Marcel Lace CLA Plimsolls. Whether your child loves athletics or being part of the Netball team, Lacoste are sure to have the best sporting footwear.

Additionally, for sportswear that will survive the season, Canterbury has a great choice of shorts, tees and track pants amongst other things that will get your kids kitted out for all their sporting needs.

Extra-curricular activities play a big part in keeping your child fit and active so for the swimming club, be sure to buy from the well-known swimwear brand Speedo for swimsuits, shorts and all other accessories including goggles, floats and swim caps.
