Buying shoes for many parents is a chore. Good shoes are often one of the biggest expenses for children and it is so important that shoes fit correctly. I am now one of the biggest advocates of getting the right size shoes for young growing feet. Due to Erin’s DDH I waited and waited to buy Erin her first pair of proper shoes. She was almost two and half before she needed walkers. She mostly wears Kickers as they give her the support she needs but now that she plays hockey and the sun is shining I decided to buy her a pair of trainers.
I went to clarks as she needs to be fitted both for length but also for width. Erin still has really dinky feet so much smaller than all her peers but I’m not sure if that is related to ddh and foot growth or if she just has dinky feet. At age 31/2 she is only a size six! This week saw me getting her the trainers. I let her choose and she choose this pretty pair.
Watching Erin try on shoes still gets me and I don’t think I’ll ever be concerned about how much I spend on shoes for her!
She is loving the design and couldn’t wait to wear them to nursery. Erin seems to be following me by choosing white. The first thing my husband commented on was that they would be dirty and scuffed in time. He is probably right on the scuffed front considering how much she falls over but us girls have to make sacrifices and I love Erin in the colours cream and white.
