I recently found this company online and thought the shoes had some great features. A is quite hard to buy shoes for as she has a very high instep which makes finding good fitting shoes quite tricky.
Firstly I feel I should mention that these shoes came from the states. The delivery was 5 days. I was very impressed with the service.
The shoes themselves have some great unique features. 1. Transparent soles- these allow for you to see when they no longer fit without having to press on the child’s foot and “find their toes” or having to rely on the child to tell you. 2. Barefoot soles- the thin material allows for development of bones and muscles and mimics walking barefoot. 3. Adjustable fit- the backs of the shoes can be adjusted to allow for growing feet. 4. Easy opening- the shoes have easy, wide openings to allow children to get the shoes on and off and lots of room in the toe area too.
A has worn them for a couple of days now and loves them. They fit really well and I love the fact that they can be adjusted as she grows. They also came with a second set of insoles. When I first put them on they seemed a little big but with the added insoles they are perfect. I know that they will last even longer now as I can take that part out.
KidOFit do a variety of styles for both boys and girls ranging from $42- $69. This may seem high but when you convert the price to pounds you are looking at £28-£45. In my opinion they are an excellent price and great value for money compared to price at Clarke’s.
Go over to their website and have a look. I highly recommend them!
