Had her measured at John lewis for a pair of shoes and they say she's not even a size 2 (Startrite size); probably a size 1 or 1 and a half.

I've left it as late as possible to get her shoes because I know it's better for her feet to go bare foot but with the weather the way it is her Daisy Root Bobox aren't protection enough from the rain when she walks home from the park.

Can anyone please recommend some proper shoes for her?

Thought about these but not sure if they would protect from elements too well.
Any experiences?

try eBay
My dd has had teensy feet all her 6 years
Ricosta and many other continentalbrands do hood small shoes
Search eBay by size perhaps?

Thank you Bronze!
Fingers crossed you'll find links to other sites too, but this one is fab anyway.

Can't believe it. Soooooo pissed off with John lewis. Took DD to a children's shoe shop this afternoon. They measured her and told me she was a Startrite size 2!!!
so, the search for shoes is off as DD is now the proud owner of her first pair of shoes.
Won't ever go to John Lewis for DD's shoes again though.
