I'm being indecisive re footwear for dd (5) to wear in London - suggestions?
Ok ... please bear with me. We're heading to London at the weekend to do all the touristy stuff, and I'm fretting a bit about dd's footwear.
We're heading to London at the weekend and I'm in a quandry re her footwear (and if I'm honest, how cute/coordinated she'll be in subsequent photos yes,shallow). She can be a bit flaky if she's out walking and I'm concerned that she'll end up moaning when pounding the pavements.
She currently has school shoes, trainers which are fairly worn but she's had since the summer (and she's complaining are hurting her heel (!)) and some Gap brown suede boots - which are more style than substance (and will be fine for the evening if we're out for dinner etc having been back to the hotel).
So what to do - do I get her new trainers (which I wasn't really planning to do at the moment) or decent, fitted shoes (Clarks/Startrite etc, again, wasn't planning to get just now) - that I know won't hurt her feet in any way. School shoes? They're v nice, black patent, but she'll be in pink/skirts/jeans etc and black won't really go (again, thinking of all the photos frolicking outside Buckingham Palace etc!).
I realise I'm overthinking this but would like her not to moan be uncomfortable with 2 days on London's pavements whichareveryhard!
Go with comfort rather than style. Forecast is good for the weekend so she shouldn't need anything too warm/waterproof. Just something she can walk around in easily. Don't bother buying anything new....it's more likely to rub if she's breaking in a new pair of shoes.
Mwah to Tassisssss - yes! She has sandals and the forecast is good. So she could do sandals on a warm day and trainers the next ... that way I can wait 6w till the fab local shoe sale to get new trainers.
Re boots - prob going to stick with the Gap ones for now (as it goes with everything in her wardrobe - but don't think they'll be particularly long lasting). She's inherited some Lands End pale pink insulated boots so I'm tempted to leave it at that .... haven't yet thought about black school boots as still loving her shoes.
