When the package arrived the shoes came presented in a beautiful Tiffany’s coloured box with the words “My 1st Years”. Inside were 2 gorgeous shoes with my sons name embroidered onto the side. The shoes look like little converse trainers and are beautifully soft.
The shoes are very well made, perfect for ages up to 18 months even from new-born. The stitching was really well done and the sizing was quite generous which is what you want for small feet. My son is now cruising the furniture and he wore them to a baby class where he was crawling about. The shoes were comfortable enough to not stop him from all sorts of movement but soft enough and stable enough for him to be standing in them, they are not just a pretty pair of shoes but very practical too. I also had a lot of mums ask about them during the class, they are a very unique item! The only issue I did find is my son kept pulling the laces undone and I had to keep tying them up as I didn’t want him to trip on them. I have seen shoes with elastic laces that don’t actually need tying up; they would be perfect for these shoes. Saying that I did double knot them and my son struggled to undo them then. The shoes are well designed that depending on the outfit you can slip the trousers right over them making nappy changing a bit easier, especially if you have double knotted them!
They are very good value for the price and a perfect keepsake once your child is done with them, ours will be going into a box frame. I would recommend them for gifts for new baby, birthdays or Christmas, they are so well made it’s a shame only one child will wear them! If you won’t be buying them for your child, show them to someone who will give them to you as a gift as they are so gorgeous. We will be getting a pair for our next child!
5 out of 5 for the product, the price and the way it comes packaged… we loved them.
