1. I do agree – black shoes are for school, and I try and choose brighter coloured trainers and sandals for my older 2. When Max starts wearing shoes he won’t be having black either. I am thinking a nice soft blue, or maybe green…? Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  2. your defiantly right and i am gonna face this problem too once my little girl needs shoes hope by then the choice will be better. i think boys choices on the shoe colour are a bit better then girls ones in my experience w my son.

  3. Fab review I so agree, where are all the fabulous colors that pop!!!! Come on our kiddies don’t want to be in black all week long and then all weekend long. Make it fun. Lovely post! Thanks for sharing. #triedtested.

  4. I completely agree with you, and it’s even worse for boys’ shoes. Last time I took my son to a well known high street chain we were offered trainers or school shoes. They need to up their game!

    I HATE shopping for shoes – why are they all PINK?!?!? I don’t want pink shoes! Red or navy would do nicely thanks!
    Thanks for linking up this week 🙂

  6. Oh you might be able to help me then. Clarks sold us the 2nd stage shoes as they opened wider & were easier to get on (daughters 1st shoes) She is just learning to stand. But friend now saying they should have the softer soled ones, until walking properly etc. Do you know what is best? x

    • im no expert but my boo was late walking so her feet were too big for soft shoes. they said hard ones would make it easier to walk but i would think if she is crawling more than walking , soft shoes might be comfier? if you’re not happy go back. clarks are usually good with that sort of thing. i always believe mum knows best xx

  7. Defo save black for school! Let kids be kids and have fun with their shoes!!! I wish they made them in adult sizes, let alone big kid sizes! Will defo have a look on their website! I always buy my Boo’s (great nickname btw 😉 ) online in bigger sizes and them just put her in them when she grows into them!

    Aww that sucks. We never buy high street shoes, the boys live in converse and vans so they are a little more lively than some of the usual options! I hope I’m not too cynical but it seems like just another way of trying to make kids grow up too quickly!

  9. Aww bless her, have you heard of Livie and Luca? (@livieandlucauk on twitter) they stock amazing colourful shoes and always have sales ones too. X #triedandtested
