Shoes are a tricky thing to talk about – I mean, just how exciting can a pair of school shoes be? Well… if they have Lego bricks on them, apparently very exciting :)
The collaboration between Kickers and Lego has meant that for the first time ever the 7yr old is very very VERY excited to put his shoes on in the morning – and to keep them clean too. Oh yes – you heard me. He cleans them. Without prompting.
There is a huge range of colours and styles (*whispers* a few of which are, quite frankly, a bit ugly) and some of them are very very lovely. You have the traditional Kickers styled boots and shoes, and the option of laces or Velcro. I wish more companies would give us the option of laces – call me old-fashioned, but how can my children ever learn to tie them if they can’t get shoes with laces? Plus I always think they fit better.
I love the red infants boot, and the girls one bar shoe is so pretty. But in the interests of economy I went for plain old ordinary black school shoes (dull, but true). But it’s okay, they’re not really dull at all – the Velcro versions have have subtle lego bricks on the end of the tabs, and the lace ups have fab coloured lego eyelets – and multi-coloured soles. Gorgeous!
Best of all, they are Kickers. So that means they are perfect childrens shoes: chunky, supportive, well made, leather, and tough enough to withstand the playground batterings.
It’s going to be hard to go back to any other kind of shoe, to be honest.
