School's in for summer

So school starts this week and Mr Rosanna and I have left our run a bit late in terms of getting all the things we need ready in time for Thomas starting school.  However better late than never!

If you are looking for affordable school shoes for kids, there are a few local places worth visiting.  There is a Clarks shoe factory outlet at 324 Darebin Road in Fairfield where we've previously picked up sandals for the boys.  Along the way, you'll go past other factory outlets all along that stretch of road as you head west from Ivanhoe.

There's also Morton's shoes in Ivanhoe on Upper Heidelberg Road.  They also sell Clarks shoes (but generally not on sale) and often have discounted shoes out the front in their display bins.  We've picked up sneakers for Thomas from them a couple of times and the boys love the special kids seating area.

We did manage to find some Slazenger leather shoes for Thomas at Shu Way near Macleod on Saturday.  They don't sell Clarks but do have other labels including Bata and other sports brands.  Shu Way has been there for something like 40 years - Mr Rosanna can remember going there as a child.
