Some students have told their parents they will quit school if they don't buy them a pair of good shoes!!!
This is the result of the little emperor/empress syndrome
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

Same problem in other countries.
It should be realized that students should wear shoes that could last just enough time for them. A pair of shoes that is expensive may not last long for elementary, middle and high school student because growth is quick due to good nourlshment.
Suggest spend the money wisely. This must be explained clearly.
It is not comparison or whatsoever but THRIFTINESS that must be taught.

Children should not dictate what they should wear to school. School policy on school uniform should be complied with, or changed after discussion and rational argument. With increasing affluence, Chinese people show off their wealth. It is inevitable that this should move into schools. The only realistic argument is about the health and safety of footwear. Wearing trainers all day can cause problems with children's growing feet. They lack the support needed. Some shoes are only for fashion and pay little regard to comfort or the needs of a growing child.
