Shoes for toddler bridesmaid?

I wasn't sure where to put this, so it's here smile

My sister is getting married this weekend. She told us a month ago, and I have been searching all that time for white shoes for my DD and cannot find any that she could walk in/keep on her feet. Now it is 5 days until the wedding and she is shoeless sad

So can you lovely ladies help me? I need reasonably cheap (as they will only be worn once) white bridesmaid shoes in an infant size 4.5 or 5 that I can go get from a shop or will be delivered in time for sunday. Big ask, apparently.

Have you tried the rosebud walkers in Monsoon?

They were on our list (but the 5 was too big and no 4s) but we ended up getting some silver two part shoes from next.

My dd has just been a bridesmaid for my sister and we bought all the little ones plain white ballet shoes. The elastic across the top keeps them on pretty well.

Do they have to be white? These are really cute if she could get away with silver

LittlePandaBear Tue 06-Nov-12 12:47:59

They also have these but my DD is the same shoe size and don't think they would stay on for more than a minute!

I really like the Monsoon ones but they didn't have her size in store or online.

I wanted ballet shoes but couldn't find any <thicko emoticon>

Yeah they have to be white unfortunately Panda. And I looked at those white Debenhams ones but she'd have them off before we'd even left the room grin

Mothercare have these bad boys- not white, but silver.

LittlePandaBear Tue 06-Nov-12 15:49:41

These from Barratts but no size 5 online!

Primark and shoe zone actually have some really pretty shoes ATM grin

bangersmashandbeans Tue 06-Nov-12 16:47:48 have kids dance shoes. Just looked and they have soft ballet shoes in white in child size 5 for £9.99 but low in stock.

Ha Panda I have those bookmarked. May have to see if a 4 would fit...

I think, if all else fails, they may have to be silver.

Thanks bangers I will go have a look.

I will look in primark too, though their sizes seem to be massive for DD.

I remember looking for similar when my DD was a bridesmaid age 3, ballet pumps were no good as she couldn't keep them on her feet. After ringing round loads of bridal shops to find something in stock in her size, I eventually found some satin mary jane pump type shoe from a dance shop (in Egham, just in case you happen to be local).

I'm a bit late to this thread, but have you tried BHS? They have little white and silver ballet pumps in toddler sizes.
