My dd really wants these shoes but the style is too deep for her foot (?) Can anyone help me track down similar shoes - patent, girlie and with flashing lights?

are all Clarks shoes too deep? DD has a similar style from Clarks, not patent but has flashing lights. She tried on the same ones as your DD but said they were uncomfortable.

they dont fit your requirements anyway, but dont get these shoes here
We got them for DD on the Sat, took them back on the Monday because the rubber on the soles was coming off already.

oh that's interesting... I don't know whether they were all too deep, I suspect not - It's a bit of a toss-up as to which is more vitally important flashing lights or shininess wink

DD said the shiny ones were uncomfortable, so we got the ones in my link, DH took them back and DD has settled for the non shiny version of the ones in your link grin
Oddly - we got a pair of patent ones (different style) last time, and the following day DD played merry hell saying they were hurting her feet.

Could you get a pair of shoe insoles to see if that would help with the depth?

<shudder> We get to do this next week. High instep causes lots of fun and whinging.

ooh yeah insoles I wonder if that would work....

I have been googling and found... well basically John Lewis

shiny with a butterfly

... but no flashing lights siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh

My dd wanted the exact pair of flashing clarks shoes but also found the sides too high and said they hurt her feet. Sounds like it could be a bit of a design flaw then if several of us on here have experienced the same problem?

I want a pair of flashy light shoes... for me grin

Hi Elf - we have had 2 pairs of those purple clarks ones - both were taken back because of the soles falling apart - the first pair after 10 days and the other after 24 hours! Have now got lovely startright ones!

worzella Tue 25-Aug-09 19:25:19

sorry - Startrite!

ElfOnTheTopShelf Tue 25-Aug-09 19:39:12

I couldn't believe how bad the sole were on the purple shoes!

Lelli Kelly do some patent school shoes, don't think they have any with lights but they are still rather gimmicky hmm I've heard they're very comfortable and well made.

Have seen lots of patent school shoes in m&s too.
