I think my daughters already own more shoes than I do, mostly passed on from their cousins and the occasional impulse buy and I do try to ensure they have at least one pair at all times from a reputable brand which has comfort, style and support for little feet.
We were recently sent some floral canvas shoes to try out from Startrite. Izzy had a gorgeous blue pair and Chloe a pink pair in the same style. On the very first day they were worn Izzy stood in a very dirty puddle so they have already been washed ..twice. They have stood up to machine washing quite well and although they look slightly faded probably due to the vigorous initial wash I gave them as I swear she chose the blackest puddle ever to step in.
Both girls love wearing them, I like that they are similar styles but not identical. I love that they are easy to put on so Izzy can put hers on with ease and Chloe tries very hard to do hers too.
These StartRite Posy Girls Shoes are £22 for the pair which I think is great value for a pair of very durable, machine washable pair of comfy yet pretty shoes.
* We were gifted these shoes for the purpose of a review.
