2 - Dubarry Admirals
The big brother/sister of the Kapley comes in a close second. Dubarry Admirals is around a long time but put in another stellar performance in 2019. A superbly made deck shoe that wears well and lasts for ages, the Admirals "dubes" were favoured mostly by the older secondary school kids.

2 - Piero Masetti 31100
Another big seller was the Piero Masetti boater, matching Dubarry Admirals all the way pair-for-pair in sales to finish in joint second place. Made in Spain, the Piero Masetti deck shoe has earned a name for itself as the best fitting deck shoe on the market. A more sympathetic fit for those with slighter feet and who find the traditional deck shoes too wide, Piero is also fantastic value at €65. A winner!

4 - AV8 Kal by Dubarry
Easily the top seller in senior boys back-to-school shoes, AV8's formal slip-on Black shoe Kal ticks all the boxes. Kal Junior for the younger boys was also a solid performer. You can buy both Kal and Kal Junior now online at Shoe Republik.
5 - Ricosta Tamo
Ricosta's boy's school shoes are well known for their durability and hard wearing qualities. This years best seller has been Tamo, which is a sporty black shoe with a leather upper. Another popular style was the water resistant Ricosta Nino. Tamo is available to buy online now at Shoe Republik.
