New shoes from Clarks

There’s something exciting about new shoes and Edward feels the same way. Last week we were invited to our local Clarks store so Edward could choose a pair of new shoes from the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection.

His feet were measured and I was surprised that his feet had grown a whole size. As a size 7H he needed the widest fitting which unfortunately limited our choice to just two pairs in stock. One pair had flashing lights which were very appealing but I didn’t like the colours of the shoe and the other pair featured a rather fab dinosaur on the shoe and sole.

Both fitted fine but we chose the leather pair featuring a dinosaur called Stomposaurus. They are leather and have a long velcro strap which are perfect for a wider fitting shoe.

The fitting didn’t take long and we celebrated by going for a walk in Ally Pally where Edward enjoyed running through the autumnal leaves.

For more information on Clarks new ranges visit or to pre-book an appointment with a fitting expert call 0844248840.

Disclosure: we were sent a Clarks voucher in exchange for this review.

    I always get so frustrated by the lack of choice in boys’ shoes in Clarks. I trust, and like, their shoes but just wish that our boys had the same amount of choice as the girls do! Those are a lovely pair though.

    I had difficulty finding a pair of Clarks shoes I likes last year but this year I was really pleased to find a lovely pair of boots, they look great & seem really comfy on my little one too

    […] on a navy trainer with lights! The Rexy Stomp is from the Stomposaurus range which he’s worn and loved before, so this pair seemed an obvious choice. They came in blue leather which should go with his clothes […]
