The Sunday Review - Clarks Pram Shoes

One of my team of mummy & daddy reviewers became a Dad for the second time a few weeks ago. His gorgeous little boy seemed like the ideal person to review the new Pram Shoes from Clarks

Clarks are well known for their First Shoes range for crawlers, cruisers and little walkers but until now, if you had turned up in a Clarks store with tiny weenie feet you'd have been turned away because real, rigid shoes are not good things for small, growing feet. Clarks have just launched a new range of soft, flexible Pram Shoes to buy online that ARE designed for tiny feet – to keep them warm and protected when your baby is out and about in the pushchair.

Both myself, and my Daddy reviewer, Ignacio liked the shoes. They're very soft and squidgy so there is no guilt associated with putting tiny feet into cramped shoes. Unlike any other leather pre-shoe I've seen, the Clarks pram shoes are held onto the feet using a very small elasticated draw-string toggle instead of the more common fixed elastic around the ankle. This is a great feature because it means that the shoes can be tailored to your own child's feet – you can tighten the draw string a little for really tiny feet, or loosen it as they grow bigger.

The Clarks pram shoes come in a range of colours and all feature a small, subtle emboridered design on the front. You can buy them in sizes for 0-3 months, 3-6 months or 6-9 months. Ignacio found the 0-3 month shoes to be a bit big for his newborn baby, even at their tightest fitting but that means that there is plenty of room for tiny toes to wiggle and that there will be several months use out of them yet.

The pram shoes come in a smart presentation box that allows you to see in to the contents inside. They would make a gorgeous gift for a newborn.

Clarks still believe that barefoot is best, but when you're out and about, you may just want the little extra protection and comfort that a pair of leather shoes offers.
