The MUST HAVE winter shoes for your little one this Christmas
With cold winter evenings and snowy christmas day yearnings, it’s important that our little ones’ feet are snug and comfortable. Which is why choosing the perfect winter show for your mini me, can become quite an arduous task. Believe it or not, there just don’t seem to be that many stylish, wearable yet stunning toddler shoes out there….
Until that is we tumbled across Papouelli. This designer children’s shoe shop (you can buy both online or in their store on Marylebone Lane) creates shoes that are “beautiful, classically timeless but with a contemporary edge.” I spent hours browsing online (I kid you not - I couldn’t tear myself away form their beautiful website!) and felt like I could have added numerous shoes to my basket for Rupert.
Rupert would not only have had the most stylish feet around, but I noticed how Papouelli also really understand that as well as looking good, toddler shoes MUST be practical as well. Their shoes literally ticked every single box for a parent wanting pretty toddler toes and a shoe that lasts the scrapes, runs, jumps and playfulness of toddler life.
I eventually picked out two beautiful sets of shoes for Rupert that would work well for Christmas parties (well toddlers do have social lives too you know!) and those wintery walks in the woods: The Billie Brown and the Mossop. Both sets of shoes/boots turned up impeccably wrapped (complete with their own little shoes bags!) and I was incredibly impressed with the quality, softness and look of them both. Stylish? YES. Comfortable? YES. Was Rupert happy to wear them? ABSOLUTELY
