The boys have way too many Christmas things but when I see them, I just can't help myself and have to buy them. Funky jumpers, funny looking hats and now cute shoes too.
Inch Blue have a huge selection of childrens soft-soled shoes that are funky and bright. They are a family run business based in South Wales and they make their shoes knowing that all of the components are the very best quality available and environmentally friendly too.
Inch Blue shoes have been designed to give total comfort for little growing feet. They are made exclusively from soft natural leather allowing your baby's feet to breathe. I am always talking about and telling people how young children should not be wearing hard shoes as they can affect how feet grow and cause problems in later life and so to hear that a shoe company are thinking about this too is great.
Their range of fun, fresh designs is what they are best known for with over 100 different styles to choose from and all made within the UK. The only choice you have is what design you will pick. From princesses and animals, to sporty styles and farmyard friends, there really is a pair suitable for everyone. And now they even have a Christmas range too.
When I got in touch with Inch Blue, they were very pleasant and happy for us to work with them in doing a review of their Christmas range. After chatting away, we decided on a pair for each of the boys. I couldn't choose from them and all resorted to asking the boys themselves to pick. In the end it was Red Rudolf ones for Thomas and Baby Blue Penguin ones for Charlie.
Both pairs can be purchase in various sizes to fit from newborn to up to 6 years old. It is nice for a company to think of the older children that might want funky designs too.
Once ordered, the shoes are put into production and then sent out. We weren't waiting very long at all for them to say that they had to be cut, stitched and fitted together before being sent out. They come in clear plastic bags with a press-stud fastening so you can see the bright designs straight away.
I quickly took a photo of them in their packaging before the boys pinched them off me to try on.
Thomas loves his reindeer shoes with their bright red design and funky reindeer stitched lovingly onto the front. The reindeer has a sparkly nose to make them extra special too. Charlie loves his 'peggin' (penguin) shoes and every time someone comes to visit us, he grabs them and wants them on straight away to show them off.
The suede non-slip soles are fantastic for when the boys are running around the kitchen as they stop them for slipping over and the elasticated ankles means that they fit better and stay on too.
Overall I can say that myself and both boys are happy with these shoes. The quality, durability and the thought that have been put into them makes them perfect for young children and the quirky designs and bright colours appeal to young children too.
