Clarks Baby Shoes. Review & Giveaway!

Gosh, how time flies! This was us 6 months ago when we got our little one her very first pair of shoes. It was only natural for us to walk into Clarks because I know they measure their tootsies properly there (length as well as width) and that their shoes come in half sizes as well. At that point in time, it was such a lovely ‘milestone’. (still is) We went in just before she turned one and Clarks made our First Shoes experience very memorable. They even captured the moment, emailed and posted the keepsake photo out to us.

For every

Gorgeous outfit

For every wobbly step

For the journey ahead.

For growing feet in safe hands.

She was very apprehensive about her first pair of shoes but I did tell her that she will grow to LOVE shoes in time and ho and behold its true, she keeps playing with all of her shoes and is very quick to tell us to put them on when she wants to go out. She even tries my shoes!

She outgrew her first pair and we went back to Clarks again for her 2nd pair. It is easy to be loyal to the brand as the quality is great and the range is super fun.

We were thrilledΒ  when we found out that Clarks were going to kindly gift us a pair of shoes of our choice to review. Perfect timing as we found that she has leaped up to a size 4. The most challenging bit was to decide on a style!

It was a really close call between the very trendy and traditional Dabi Leila. They have it in a gorgeous neon yellow too. Its such a classic style, I wished they did it in adult sizes. I would so wear them.

I went with a Coral Patent Little Jam though. Personally, am a huge fan of Mary-Jane style shoes and the meadow flower detailing is adorable. A little someone was well excited when it came in the morning post. We were still in bed and had to try them on immediately πŸ™‚

We have definitely put the shoes to ‘test’ for a few weeks now and they still look brand new. No scuffs! Patent is always a great choice and she seems happy with them. We have been everywhere in her new shoes .. museums, farms, you name it! I went snap-happy as always, do enjoy our little every day moments.

We are definitely creating lots of happy moments in those shoes πŸ˜‰
