Rupert is rather tall, on the slender side and both long and narrow of foot. This can make shopping for well fitting clothes and shoes a little tricky at times! My go-to brands for him for clothes are usually Mark and Spencer and H&M Kids – both of these companies offer brilliant adjustable waistbands on some of their shorts and trousers. This summer M&S has also come up TRUMPS in the sandal department…
I've been to every single shoe shop trying to find a style of sandal to fit his long narrow feet, which would also look stylish and fairly smart. From an eye-wateringly-expensive (but seriously stylish) independent shoe shop in South Kensington to good old Clarks and everything in between, nothing gave him good support other than absolutely hideous garish sports style sandals.
Enter stage left, M&S and the rather lovely Leather Riptape Footbed Sandals!
Super supportive with a long Velcro strap to make the ankle well fitting, in a soft navy leather with a comfortable lining and even a navy outsole which masks grubbiness a little longer than so many sandals which have white.
Rupert is a size eight and these were perfectly true to size. Here's the link… Happy shopping!
