It was MrsF's thread before, I think - didn't you find anything suitable then, MrsF?

My 6yr old nephew supposedly got some at Clarks but they were probably a 13 or 1. I have seen Adidas indoor velcro soccer shoes.

yes clarks do them, but not up to a 5 unfortunately

you can get elastic laces that only need to be tied once

TheRealMrsF Wed 06-Jul-05 21:56:24

so...would he simply tie them tight then tuck the laces in???

Just got ds2 some velcro boots in John Lewis sale, half price at £11. He's only a size 8 and 1/2, might do up to a bigger size. They are made by cica and the code on the box is 349636F. name is "TWIN STRIKE 1", colour is "black/red/silver leather". They came in a dark grey box with a black lid with a red cica curly sign and "CICA" written in white. They were on a sale rack. I got them in John Lewis, Glasgow. They don't have studs but would be suitable for playing on concrete or grass.
