Comfort and quality are terms that have become synonymous with Buccaneer School Shoes since they first opened their doors in 1905.

Their long legacy of excellence has led Buccaneer to become known as the 'School Shoe Specialists'. The Buccaneer range includes the ever popular Dolly Shoes (Buccaneer’s signature shoe); the Scooter for boys; Bucc Lites, for boys and girls; and the Buccaneer Classic, an entry-level shoe that is affordable and therefore kinder to parents’ pockets. 

15 000 hours in school shoes means you need to buy the right ones 

Considering that the average school child spends approximately 30 hours a week in school shoes – that is 15 000 hours in their lifetime - it is very important to make sure that school shoes fit correctly. 

In the first 18 years of a child’s life, their feet will grow through many shoe sizes. After the age of three a child’s foot will grow about half a size every six months, meaning that school shoes will generally last between nine months and a year – excluding any growth spurts. Children’s feet are growing and the bones are soft and still developing. Because of this, badly-fitting shoes can lead to more than blisters and foot pain, resulting in problems later in life - such as ingrown toenails, corns and bunions.
