Sports Shoes In Disguise

Whether it’s girls or boys school shoes, you can rely on Ascent’s Sports Shoe Technology to provide all day comfort and support. Your child will love our hard wearing black leather school shoes.

Your child will wear their school shoes on average for over 1500 hours per year, jumping, kicking, and running around on hard flat surfaces. Therefore, it is important that their school shoes are providing just as much cushioning and support as their sports shoes.

Considering the activities that children get up to, and their still-developing physical structure, they need good footwear more so than adults.

Endorsed By Professionals

Our school shoes are the ONLY school shoes endorsed by The Australian Podiatry Association. Our shoes are often referred by health professionals to their patients, as they are orthotic friendly, flex in the right place and provide the correct amount of support and cushioning for growing feet.

The APodA will only recommend products that yield therapeutic benefits or aid in the management or prevention of foot ailments. A selection of our school shoes are also endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA). The APA only endorses products that offer a direct health benefit to patients of physiotherapists.

Outsole Guarantee

Selected school shoes and training shoes are guaranteed against wearing through the outsole from normal day-to-day use. The Ascent 6 month outsole guarantee will cover any manufacturing faults on the outsole of the shoes that arise during the first 6 months from the date of purchase.


Education Programs

As a brand, we are concerned about the development of children’s feet. We value research, development, and engaging with the medical community to provide high-quality supportive footwear.

We also advocate education to promote foot health and as part of our social responsibility, we offer FREE educational lessons for school students. Through our school education program and participation in the community, we hope many ailments suffered by the next generation will be diminished.

Widths & Sizes

To ensure you get the perfect fit every time, we make our school shoes in a huge range of sizes, half sizes and different widths. Not only is width and size important, but we also offer a range of different toe shapes in our formal school styles, so there's something for everyone's taste!
