I bought a pair of their beach shoes for ds2 - they were good quality.

Had some for dd and they were very sweet and nicely made.

I wonder why they are so cheap then. DD wore them when I got in and seemed to love them. they look good quality too. Ummmm....very strange!

anyone else got them?

I brought some and they gave my daughter blisters, the stitching was coarse and rubbed her ankle and the sole not very flexible.

poor chipmonks....I do hope they were treated humanely

ah Tulip....we need to know this, becaue they do look very well made, but for such a cheap price, there has to be a fly doesnt there!

OK, I will watch out for blisters and such things, and report back. Darn it, thought Id found something then!

dd has had two pairs (a white pair very similar to yours) and a very funky pink pair .. both have been brilliant (IMO I prefer them to (whisper) Clarks).. very well made.. I also wondered about the price

Damn you've put my secret out on MN

I retract everything ... they're rubbish !

My dd had some (MIL paid £14 in shoefayre or some shop like that) and they were FAB. My only problem was that they only come in average width fitting and dd has a narrow foot. Other than that, they were lovely, soft leather, sturdy sole, no blisters, they were great!

I bought a pair once, and they were fine. I think they're cheaper because they don't come in various width fittings - other than that, they're just as well made as Clarks imo.

They do them on a wholesale site that I looked at, I decided not to stock shoes in the end but they have some nice styles, I think ds has had some before and they were fine.
