If your kids are going back to school or starting school in September, you’re probably racing around trying to get their school supplies and uniform together before all the good bits are gone and back to school shopping starts getting stressful.
Lelli Kelly shoes from Jake Shoes
Over here in Germany, students generally don’t have to wear a school uniform, so I don’t have to stress about that, but I really appreciated it when the lovely people from Jake Shoes got in touch and asked if they could send Amy some school shoes from their back to school range. Amy, being the little fashionista she is, instantly took to the website to check out the different styles on offer and after going through her little short-list together, we decided on a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for her.
As Amy has a pretty high instep, it can be quite difficult to find shoes for her and as she’s also cursed with her mum’s big foot gene (she wears a 13.5), I was a little nervous if the shoes were going to fit. That’s the risk you take with online shopping, I guess, but I needn’t have worried. When her Lelli Kelly shoes arrived (there’s next day delivery on all offers over £40), they fit like a glove.
Amy finds them incredibly comfortable and easy to get into, which is probably why she has jumped around the house in them on more than one occasion despite them being more suited for the colder seasons.
Lelli Kelly Paris Ankle Boots for back to school
The Lelli Kelly Paris ankle boots in black patent come in a timeless yet really fashionable style, so your little one will be pleased to not only wear a shoe that school deems smart enough to be part of a school uniform but also stylish enough to wear with everyday outfits.
Obviously, as a parent, I look at shoes differently than Amy. All that she’s interested in is that they’re comfy and look good, but for me, it’s also important that they have a flexible and non-skid sole, have a breathable lining (let’s face it, no one likes stinky feet) and are providing stability and support for growing feet. If you’re unsure about what to look out for, check out this advice on buying shoes for children to make sure your kids’ shoes aren’t damaging their feet.
All in all, I’m really happy with Amy’s new Lelli Kelly shoes. Admittedly, they’re not cheap at £54.99 for the pair but I feel that they really support her feet and ankles and they’ll definitely see her through autumn and winter. The synthetic patent makes them really easy to wipe down too, so they’re easy to clean and will look nice for months to come.
