Its the school shoes with the dolls in I have a problem with. Asked the shop assistant NOT to bring any out with dolls, but she did! Result - major tantruming 7 year old when I said I was not going to pay an extra tenner for a bit of plastic that will get lost within a week. Have not had the other shoes shown to us - yet
Clarks sales assistants are told to be very VERY pushy - usually it's "shoecare" (my teenage brother had a Saturday job at Clarks, and they got bollocked if they didn't flog enough leather cream) and handbags. Showing other shoes is a new one on me, but I'm not remotely surprised.
The shoes with dolls in rile me sooo much! They are advertised everywhere and my daughter is desperate for them. But she has very narrow feet and they don't fit her so I refuse to buy. I dread school shoe shopping now as she invariably leaves the store in tears
