Ascent School Shoes

Kids don’t walk, they run! That’s why Ascent formal school shoes are sports shoes in disguise. Engineered with running shoe technology to provide the right comfort and support to help kids get through an active school day.

Ascent IIFit
In 2011 we launched a unique way of selling Ascent shoes via our retail partner (The Athlete’s Foot) in a program called IIFit.

IIFit allows customers to purchase shoes in different sizes between their left and right feet at no extra cost or waiting time or as an individual shoe (either left or right) at half the retail price.

With over 60% of the population having different sized feet, IIFit is the ideal fitting solution for footwear. IIFit can assist Polio, Clubfoot, Diabetes sufferers or Full and Partial Amputees.
