Not sure if anyone has any ideas of where I can buy some decent sandals for my Daughter for school.
She needs ones with a bit of support to do the sport they do in the mornings.

I went to Harbour Town and the shops today and the Betts or Airflex type look like theywould be good but they don't have any stock.  

Apparently Betts Kids have sold out of size 12 sandals across WA - none available online

Local Williams shop didn't get any in as they said they didn't sell well last year

Payless at our local shops doesn't exist anymore

Any help would be good !!!

I think i will try the kids shoe shop in Ocean Reef in the morning ...hopefully they have got something

Seems difficult to buy these types of shoes they seem to have lots of thongs and sparkly type party shoes everywhere???

Oh i feel your pain! How hard is it to find any! I needed size 11 and got the last pair from Betts kids but had to travel 40mins away to Midland to get them.
There is a childrens shoe shop in Maylands that may have some. I think they stock clarks.

ETA- Its called magic shoe box. Maybe you could call them before going over there?

Williams in Galleria had girls sandals at $90 ! would have to call them to check sizes.

There was a shoe shop in Midland out the back of the shops - Jon's shoe store I think that use to do lots of school shoes/sandals.

I usually get boy ones that dont look too boyish and usually a lot cheaper too.

There is a Bubbler deal on at the moment for the magic shoebox - pay $39 and get $70 credit to spend on any full price shoes.

I got these for my boys but in black of course. They are great as they are enclosed sandals.

Is she at a school where she requires sandals for the uniform, ie brown/navy?

If not I bought my kids keen sandals last year that lasted perfectly the whole year. Very sturdy and protect their feet especially if you get ones with enclosed front. I did buy them from endless.com which has since been taken over by amazon, goodbye free shipping! Some stores like Kathmandu stock them if you need to check size, I found they are slightly on the smaller size.
