A school boy’s eye for design has resulted in 26 of his classmates stepping out in sparkling new shoes.

Seven-year-old William Alvarez-Garmon, a pupil at St Andrew’s Primary School in Soham, entered the Win Shoes for Your Class competition run by nationwide footwear retailer Charles Clinkard.

And he wowed the judges with his creative and colourful design of a spy shoe with a flying rocket booster, a voice-activated outfit changer to disguise the wearer, a projector of the world and a hidden camera. His win meant new shoes for himself and vouchers for his classmates entitling them to a pair of Clarks shoes from Charles Clinkard up to the value of £50.
