Yes, we have them for dd - they are very sturdy and seem well made. DD has a very high and wide feet, Clarks shoes generally don't fit but Chipmunks fit her beautifully. Only downside is that they don't have half sizes. We get ours from Brantano at £10 a pair.

They are cute We get loads of comments saying how lovely they are.

DD is 2.2 and a size 6!

We got chatting to someone (another parent, not a shop person) in Brantano who said that they had worked for Clarks and that Clarks shoes are well overpriced and that Chipmunks are just as good - they have built up arches and cushioned soles etc.

No, but I have tried Kids shoes for Chipmunks.

They got very cross.

<snort> @ Hunkermunker

I'm amazed you managed to get them to stay still for long enough

They were on the naughty step (for climbing wilfully and squeaking with their pouches full) at the time, CF.

<bored at work so googles the rodent status of chipmunks>

Yes they are <knowledgable>

Not sure about the shoe/boot thing anniemac, we always get shoes for dd because she can't undo the buckles, anything with a velcro strap ends up being chucked out of the buggy.

I buy Chipmunks for my children. They are fantastic shoes. The problem is that they only go up to a size 9 - and as one of my children is now a 10, I do buy other shoes for them.

I contacted Brantano - but they dont do them now.

I get them measured in my Start-Rite of Clarks shop and now buy all their shoes from


They are 1/2 the price - and the lady who runs the company is fantastic. My shoes literally arrived in 24 hours from when I ordered them!

Have a look an make your own mind up?
