I am obsessed with buying kids clothing and shoes. I think about 80% goes on them. With summer on its way, we were given the opportunity to try out a pair of summer sandals for E from Brantano's range. Choosing a pair was tough. They have such a gorgeous selection and at the end it was between the Sketchers Paw Princess (E actually saw these and wanted them herself - I think it's because they had a cat on them!) and the Hush Puppies Vikkie Smart Sandals.
I chose the Hush Puppies in infant size 5 as pink would go with more of her outfits. E was wearing size 4 and I knew
she wouldn't be in them very long so I went up to be sure she'd get the
wear out of them all summer. As soon as they arrived, E said "ah pretty
shoes!" and asked me to put them on right away.
I think the pink glitter was a sure winner!
I love that they have a thick sole but still look fashionable. I know
that they're supporting her feet well. The little flowers are E's
favourite feature, I think! I struggle with new shoes and the tiniest
bit of thread poking out irritates me to no end and
I'm left with sores and blisters. E has worn these shoes almost
constantly for about two weeks now, all without socks on, and she hasn't
had a single issue. They fit well and she can walk perfectly in them. I
love that they have Velcro straps around the toe
as well as the ankle so I can fit them to her foot width easily.
The Hush Puppies retail at only £30 (but are actually on sale right now for only £20!) which I think is very reasonable for such a fantastic and high quality shoe. This particular shoe is available in sizes 4-9 but if your child doesn't wear this size, I'm sure you could find something from the Brantano Summer sandals range to suit.
