Another parent has been left out of pocket after paying £100 on school shoes for their child's school to say they go against its policies.

School shoes have been an ongoing debate across the UK of late after kids returned to school last week following the summer holidays, and dozens of aggrieved parents have been expressing their frustrations.

One pair of shoes that have proven popular with schoolgirls this year are some £100 Vivienne Westwood pumps - but many schools have claimed that the designer slip-ons aren't appropriate.

Taking to TikTok to speak about her own experience with her child's school, a Yorkshire mum, who goes by @itsmebadmom on the video sharing platform, explained that she was told that she needs to change her daughter's shoes.

Discussing how her 11-year-old's first day at school went, she said: "I got a phone call saying that the shoes she has are not within the policy.

"So I've spent £100 on shoes that she cannot wear.

"Quite a bit fuming... it's only a pair of f*cking Vivienne Westwoods. What's the problem?"

The fuming mum went on to say that she'd understand where the school was coming from if her shoes affected her daughter's learning, but it doesn't.

It a separate TikTok, the Yorkshire mum went on to label the rules as 'absolutely ridiculous'.

"It's a first year at school, Year 7, so I thought 'Why not spend £100 on a pair of shoes?'" she further shared.

"You know as a mum, why not? Each to their own. You can spend £10 on shoes, you can pay £100 on shoes - but that's the choice I made."

Her videos have received a mixed response with her fellow social media users as some have claimed that the mum should have made sure to check the school's uniform policy before splashing out on the expensive pair of kicks.

"I bet the uniform list says what shoes to have and not to have, I bet these would be on the not list," wrote one person.

"Most school states in their uniform policy no designer emblem. Read the uniform," said another.

A third added: "They're not ideal for school shoes though are they?? School shoes are supposed to be plain."

Elsewhere, people agreed that the school's rules were 'ridiculous'.

"[The shoes] look fine to me," someone wrote.

Another person questioned: "How are they in any way inappropriate for school?"

Echoing similar sentiments, someone else hailed the £100 pumps as looking 'smart'.
