I absolutely love the comfort and support I get from these school shoes and unlike the cheaper more cost efficient shoes I don’t get a lot of wear out of them and they fall apart but this brand is amazing and I would recommend to anyone pay a bit more and get better quality. “I buy quality, not quantity”

FIT SURVEYLess ComfortExcellent ComfortFits SmallerFits LargerLess supportVery supportiveReview by DixieI wear these for WalkingWe have been buying this brand of shoes for our three children for the past five years. They always last the distance, kids grow out before they wear out! We were purchasing cheaper, reputable brands of shoes every six months, until we found Ascent.
I would highly recommend any Ascent school shoes for parents wanting long lasting comfort for their children's growing feet.Helpful?Thumbs up - 0Thumbs down - 0Loading...

FIT SURVEYLess ComfortExcellent ComfortFits SmallerFits LargerLess supportVery supportiveReview by nickyI wear these for WorkI bought these in New Zealand in 2006 whilst i was doing my nursing studies, with the shock obsorbing shoe insert suggested to go with it these shoes have been a god send in a 12 hour shift where we only have half hour break. It is only now that they are hurting and I need a new pair but unfortunately I cannot get them in the UK, if I could get them I would buy another pair, they are brilliant.Helpful?Thumbs up - 0Thumbs down - 0Loading...
With durability in mind Ascent have used a durable dye-through full grain leather with a firm thermoplastic heel counter for heel support, and thermoplastic reinforcement at the toe to prevent deformation of the upper over time. In addition to this they have also used reinforced metal eyelets for durabilityINTERIOR
Continuing the durability internally this shoe has been lined with cushioned mesh and also includes a microfiber wear tab at heelMIDSOLE
The moulded EVA midsole provides long lasting cushioning throughout the life of the shoe, reactively cushioning the foot through its walk. Additional 'Insulon' cushioning in the heel absorbs shock on impact and a wrapped thermoplastic midfoot construction combined with the nylon shank stabilises and supports the foot through even the most active daysOUTSOLE
Knowing the importance of a durable outsole Ascent have used a perpetual rubber outsole which is supported by a 6 month outsole guarantee
