Gracie’s First Shoes

Nothing hammers home how quickly your little ones are growing up as going shopping for their first shoes. It’s not something that we’d been putting off, but we didn’t want to buy anything until Gracie really needed them. On an unreasonably hot day in June we went to Clarks.

We wanted to get her a pair of pram shoes, or cruisers. These are soft soled shoes that allow a babies feet to safely develop while they are not walking unaided. We are extremely lucky to live near a Clarks shoes outlet store, so the whole family made a day of getting shoes. We got her feet professionally measured before spending some time browsing the shoes. Eventually we settled on two pairs, a more traditional pair, and a pair of trainers that sort of mimic Converses.
