Just wondering if anyone has bought any of these for their dd? Just wondering if they're OK for them to walk in and not a pain....just hoping it's not a fashion thing... seen some really nice ones on ebay but don't want to buy just because they look nice!
Basically just the same as average ankle boots (not wellies) but higher, to the knee. I'm not talking about those awful lether high boots (!) or anything sinister....they are made by m&s and just come up higher than the usual ankle boots
My dd3 (2.5) has a pair from GAP that come up to the top of her calves. They are very, very soft though so she can bend in them. Please don't buy anything that's rigid leather but soft, pliable stuff should be ok - and they do look very,very cute!
I've just bought my daughter some lovely boots from Clarks, they're super comfy and she loves them. We live in Scotland and last Winter was pretty harsh so I wanted to be prepared and make sure she would be warm. I'm pretty happy with them although I think it's taking her a bit of adjustment because they don't flex as easily as shoes do.
I have a photo of her wearing them here on my blog if you want to see? They're not quite knee high.
DD (4) had these ones and they are lovely. We're in Scotland, and they have a snuggly sheepskin lining. They're easy to put on/take off (vitally important to check this before buying any boots/shoes unless you want to spend hours of your life scrabbling around at floor level getting hot and bothered). DD's had them for about a month, and they're still looking pretty much like new (she tends to test shoes to destruction!).
Blotted - your dd looks so cute! however, the ones I was looking at were longer than your dd's...
I ended up buying some M&S ones from ebay but they're too small for my daughter after all that! I realise now it's probably not a good idea to buy on ebay without knowing the fit and didn't realise that M&S shoes tends to be smaller....
I have tried going around the shops to no avail so far apart from Clarks but they are so expensive and I'm looking for as a cheap a pair as I can really. My dd is a size 5.5 but would you recommend buying say a size 6 so that they last all through the winter until about March? I'm really not sure how fast her feet will grow but don't want to spend £34 to find that she needs the next size up in 1/2 months! But equally I don't want them to be unsuitable if they are half a size bigger than they should be ...
Does anyone know about the sizing of Adams shoes? I have found these online http://adams.co.uk/younger-girls-flower-suedette-boot-in-brown which look really nice and reasonably priced - I would have to get a size 6 though.
