These have fast become a firm favourite in our household. Not only is Fireman Sam a hero in my toddler’s eyes, these shoes have become a hero to me, too, as they make getting out of the house so much quicker (no more footwear battles!). He wears them to nursery, to the park, everywhere.
They look really fun and colourful, and have attracted lots of comments from other mums. And while they can get a little grubby, especially the white rubber toe cap, a quick scrub from a wet wipe or a more vigorous going-over in the washing machine makes them presentable again.
The shoes are lightweight and with a good grip on the sole, making them easy for my toddler to run around in, and perfect for the warmer weather. So straightforward to put on to wriggly, impatient feet, the velcro strap and stretchy laces make a busy mum’s life much easier. More fun than a shoe yet smarter than a standard trainer, these get top marks from me. Brilliant price, absolutely brilliant shoes.
