These boots weren’t made for babies …
Having said I was going to wait a little while to get Plum’s feet measured, I caved in and took her to Clark’s today. She is a size 3H. Just. Clark’s first walkers range starts mainly at size 4, with a couple of styles in a 31/2 and one style in a 3. The size 3 is out of stock. We tried some lovely shoes in a 31/2 but they were just too big. She has weeny feet and Clark’s are clearly of the opinion she shouldn’t be walking yet. But she is.
To be fair though, although they showed me what they had in her size from the cruiser range, they advised against buying them because they were of no benefit to her. They also said that the lovely little shoe/boots I had my eye on (which don’t come below a size 4) were not ideal for her anyway, because they would make it more difficult for her to walk. But they were soooo lovely 🙁
So now I’ve got to try and fit in a trip to Nottingham next week to see if Startrite have any of their 3G shoes in stock, and if they are wide enough for her.
Or maybe I could stetch her feet a bit? Perhaps Willie Wonka would lend me his stretching machine?
