First walking shoes for girls? I intensely dislike Clarks - any other suggestions?
oooh they are sooo cute wissh I had a small enoug girl to fit in those...hmm maybe ds wouldn't object. Doodle type shoes can be quite good st this stage start-rite do them too they are nice and light and can be chucked in the washing machine.
If they are wide fitting I may get some. Let me know what they're like PJ. DD is a 5H+. Clarks and Start-rite don't make shoes wide enough. Her toes won't even go in the widest Clarks ones. She's mostly barefoot anyway, partly through laziness, partly through a refusal to put her in shoes yet and partly through nowhere catering for her elephant like feet.
Hehe SOH. Did you get my FB msg? Soremummy, what a mare. I'm not too concerned about the size as she can wear them with socks/tights in the winter, more the width - she is only a little titch, like your dd!
My DD wears Ricosta because she has very small but wide feet. They are very nice shoes We've had Astor ones too which are nice, french, I think. If you go to a good children's shoe shop they should have lots of different styles.
We got dd some startrite pre-walkers. They're great - sturdy and supportive but very flexible and washable too. They're £18. If she's inside or in a park she's in bare feet as this is better for developing muscles but out and about she's in her shoes.
Independent shoe shops should stock a bigger range of nice shoes, but you struggle in tiny shoes. DD's first shes were a 2.5E - we got er some really pretty patent leather Kickers shoes, but they were black.
