In preparation there's a lot of items to get and things to do. A huge part of getting ready for back to school, or indeed the first day, is the uniform. It needs to be bought and have names written in. A big part of the uniform is shoes. We looked all over for shoes for Paige. Of course she wanted them to be really girly and they needed to be black to keep to her schools uniform standards.
Brantano got in touch and asked if we wanted to review a pair. I had a quick look on their site and saw that they do a lovely wide range of girls school shoes. Paige fell in love with the Clarks ballet pumps as they have a bow and a heart on them. She was so excited to get them.
The shoes arrived in a cute box, great for storing them! They look so cute and really comfortable. Paige is currently wearing them around the house to break them in. I love that they are a velcro fastening as that means she can put them on and take them off by herself and they are super easy for her. She needs to be able to do that by herself and I think she might struggle with another fastening so these are great as a first pair of school shoes for her.
They fit really well and seem really comfortable so far. They have a really great grip which will be perfect for when she is running around. Paige also loves the added detail of the characters and little hearts on the bottom of her shoes.
I'm both really nervous and excited for Paige to start school. I know she is too but at least with these lovely shoes she will look the part!
