Dd is 2 and I have just returned a pair of crocs to John Lewis that cut her feet the first time she wore them.

She does have very soft feet, and I am keen to find a pair of sandals for her, ideally that can be worn on holiday, around the beach also. She is a size 5.

Does anyone have any ideas, they need to be really soft and comfy. TIA

doodles?

Asda have some nice ones in. DS got some on Saturday from FIL and it's a struggle to get him to take them off!

I'll have a look on the Clarks website, but the couple of pairs that the lady in John Lewis showed me yesterday were a bit, erm, garish.

Ooh 'ello.

Proper fitting crocs.

<<will stop going on about crocs now>>

here

Sometimes you have to take the garish if they are comfortable! It is not the first time, dd ended up with boys shoes at that age.

i second doodles and yes they are garish but she is a 2 year old and does not do taupe.

suwoo - for the love of god woman, I am over the crocs. They shredded my baby's feet!!

Fimbo - will have a look.

PJ - I agree with Suwoo - the crocs in JL were shocking ime. I got T some proper ones from a shoe shop and they are fantastic

doodles were going half price at r&b last weekend. and if you think they are garish you should have a look at the leilli keilli (or wtf they are called)

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:08:02

chevre - no she doesn't do taupe, but I would like them to remotely match anything in her wardrobe <defensive>

chevre Tue 16-Jun-09 14:08:42

for the beach those wetsuit type shoes are good. how steady is she on her feet?

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:08:51

chevre - are you the national spokeswoman for doodles?

Tilly - stop agreeing with her, she loves it!

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:09:38

Very steady. OK, I'll go to the crocs shop <dubious> and also try those splish splosh ones from Clarks.

chevre Tue 16-Jun-09 14:09:47

snigger @ match. you might as well enjoy matching her clothes now i suppose in a years time she will be assembling her own horrific combinations of outfits.

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:10:07

THEY WERE PROPER BLOODY CROCS!!!!!!!!! As if I'd put her in fakes!!

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:10:48

chevre - I know, I worry she will have bad dress sense when she's older and I'll be forced to disown her wink

chevre Tue 16-Jun-09 14:11:32

i think 2 is too wee for crocs.

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 14:16:48

I know they weren't fakes, but if you go to the croc shop or look on the website like i told you, you might find that she needs a larger size.

Not a fan of Doodles here.

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:20:23

I will go to the crocs shop, honestly. They did look exceptionally cute on her tiny little feet.

suwoo Tue 16-Jun-09 14:21:12

I love crocs on DS, but no other family members!

Pinkjenny Tue 16-Jun-09 14:22:01

They are absolutely hideous.

Tillyscoutsmum Tue 16-Jun-09 14:23:56

I KNOW they weren't fakes but croc sizes really do vary depending on where you get them from. It took us 3 goes to get dsd's right

I also had some shoes from here for T and they were very soft. My only complaint was that the soles weren't very hard wearing (compared to clarks etc.) but they do some pretty sandals and they're reasonably cheap

My DD has these-they are so soft, with nice Birkenstock-style cork footbed, and softy straps, so nothing to cut in/rub.

Ha ha, she's wearing the white daisy squeakers today. They drive the nursery staff mad. But at least I don't lose her when she's wearing them.

They also cut her feet without socks <wonders whether dd has weird feet and needs to go to A&E>
