Start-Rite Boys first walking shoes Reviews

Andrea Awarded The Start-Rite Boys First Walking Shoes 5/5

I loved the little shoe box that the shoes arrived in and thought they were beautifully presented. The design of the shoes was simplistic but beautiful and such a lovely navy colour, The red pattern stands out against the navy and the white soles add to the wonderful design, The feel of the shoe is very sturdy and well made. It was massively helpful to have the size chart to help determine the size. The size chat was easy to navigate and I managed to pick what I feel was the perfect size for my little boy. The fit of the shoe was very impressive they look super comfortable on my little one’s feet and super sturdy. My son has really wide feet so I am glad that Start-Rite cater for this in their shoes. I sometimes struggle to get the shoes to stay over his feet but the Velcro and width is amazing. My little boy cannot put his own shoes on yet but as his parent these are the easiest ones we have come across so far, I can literally slide his foot in and Velcro it straight up I think because it has such great sizing his feet aren’t squashed and he doesn’t curl his toes up when I put them on. They are super easy to take off just pull back the Velcro straps and they slide straight off with no issues at all which is great for parents of a little boy who loves to run through mud and puddles. The shoes look super comfy when being worn and seem to offer the support and lightweight feel that children need when they are new to being on their feet. My little boy was able to run at ease and not once did he look like falling over or tripping. My little boy seems to be very comfortable in these shoes and never seems to have any sore patches or doesn’t rush to take them off. If we ask George to go, get his shoes then the start-rite shoes are the ones he always chooses. George looked steady on his feet at all times weather he was walking or running. I never once had to question the safety of the shoes and if they were going to be to slippy as you could tell just by looking at them, they have been well made and thought out. I think all aspects of these shoes benefited my little boy he doesn’t get sweaty feet in them, they fit like a dream, they are comfortable and are a great shoe. George loves his new shoes and always picks them out as his first choice. George wears his new shoes on a daily basis as they have definitely become the firm favourite, The fit is probably the best we have come across in shoes yet meaning they must be super comfortable for George to wear. George loves wearing his shoes on the school run for his big sister, To lots of parent and toddler groups, many walks as he loves being outside and also to soft play which is George’s favourite, these shoes are great as they slip on and off so easily and he is really happy to put them back on at home time. I feel these shoes make the perfect first walking shoes as they are so sturdy but lightweight, they add so much support to their little feet, the sizing is perfect and the fact you can get them in different widths is amazing and they are just super robust and the soles are not slippy at all meaning anyone who’s little one is still a bit unsteady won’t have to worry about them slipping in these shoes. I think George probably loves the fact the fit is absolutely perfect and also the fact that the shoes look smart but also casual so you can wear them with any outfit and still look super trendy. I cannot fault these shoes at all they have the best fit we have tried so far, the shoes are stylish, They are every parents dream for getting on and taking off and my little boy seems to really like them. I Think the quality of these shoes is amazing they are sturdy, hardwearing with little scuffs and my little boy scrapes his feet on his trike and hasn’t left one mark on the shoes which is a big bonus. My little boy also likes puddles and mud and these shoes clean and dry very easily. I think the shoes are amazing but I do find the price a little high as there are so many people struggling. The shoes will last a long time though meaning you will get lots of wear and hopefully your money’s worth out of them as long as your child’s feet don’t grow too quickly. I think the fact the fit is outstanding would also make me keep paying out for these shoes and the quality is amazing. These shoes have amazed me to the point that I would definitely buy another pair they are an amazing all-round shoe that seems to tick all of the boxes and I can’t fault them and My little boy is so comfortable and happy in them which speaks volumes.I would definitely recommend these shoes to friends and family and have already done so. I think as a parent whose child is just starting to walk knowing that they are in a perfectly fitted, well supported and durable shoe is something that takes a weight off your shoulders as it’s a big moment in your child’s life. I have been super surprised by the amazing shoes that we have been trying out from start-rite, The quality, the fit, the sturdiness, the durability, the design you name it this shoe has definitely come up trumps and has been designed very cleverly and perfectly for little feet in mind. These shoes are an absolute dream, I absolutely love how basic yet beautiful the design is and the fact you can wear the shoes with a pair of joggers or a smart pair of trousers etc. The quality of the shoes is amazing my little boy loves to scrape his feet along the floor now he can reach from his trike and it has not left a single mark on his shoes which amazes me. The shoes wash really well and come up brand new. The fit is incredible and as a mum with a boy with really chunky wide feet this has been the biggest plus for me as I have struggled to find many shoes that fit and don’t leave marks at the top of his feet. These shoes literally slide on and off making it an easy task in what is usually a very busy and manic day. These shoes are now my little boys first choice and he will bring them over and sit down for me to put on. I would highly recommend these shoes to other parents especially if they are looking for something that covers, stylish, comfortable, perfect fit, durable, sturdy, cleans well, gets lots of compliments, easy to take on and off, and an all-round amazing pair of shoes.

I thought they looked very smart. They arrived well packaged and presented in a sturdy shoe box. I was pleasantly surprised by the shoes as they have the look and feel of high quality. The design was perfect for a toddler. The rip-tape straps help to promote independence whilst the overall look of the shoe meant that they were able to co-ordinate with whatever my child happened to be wearing. The online size guide was very helpful and easy to follow. The shoes were the perfect fit. My son was comfortable in them (no complaints) and he has been happily walking/running around with them. My son is still learning how to dress independently so although he was not able to put these on entirely by himself, the design did encourage him and with practice, I know he will get there. My son found these easy to take off. There were no complaints from my son and I observed him comfortably walking and running around. He enjoys wearing these shoes and would often choose them as his choice of footwear. These shoes have been perfect. My son has not slipped/fallen/tripped over whilst wearing these. My son was definitely comfortable and I liked that I was able to ensure the shoes were secure due to the rip tape straps. My son loved these shoes. These were worn daily. Mostly worn on the school run to collect his big sister. Absolutely the ideal first walking shoes. They are cushioned and supportive of my child’s feet. As a toddler, my son is still prone to the odd trip or fall, but I can trust these shoes to keep him comfortable and safe during this stage of walking. The rip-tape straps are great as help to promote his independence. The quality is great. They are so soft, and the cushioned lining is great for little feet. As expected from Start-Rite. Fantastic quality. These shoes are built to handle toddlers on the rampage! All whilst ensuring a good and comfortable fit. First shoes are so important so I do feel that it is worth the investment. I would buy these. I love the quality. I know these shoes will keep until my son grows out of them and even then there will be so much life left that they can be handed down. I can confidently say that these shoes are looking after my son’s feet and keeping him safe whilst keeping slips/trips to a minimum. I would recommend as great quality, built to last and the ideal pair of first shoes. My son loves these shoes and will often attempt to put them on himself. They are comfortable, great quality and durable. My son has worn them every day since receiving them and they still look new! The rip tape straps mean I can ensure they fit my son snuggly and that I can be sure that when he is running and toddling about they will not come loose/fall off and consequently cause him to fall over. These are a great pair of first shoes which look lovely with any outfit.

These arrived in a great box, really nicely presented and loved the design and colour of the shoe. I always ensure Charlie has feet measured in a store so knew size I needed to order and did not need to use the size guide online. These were a good fit and he still has room to grow in these shoes. Charlie cannot put his own shoes on just yet, but very easy for us to put on and take off for him. He was fascinated with the Velcro straps and would try to pull the tabs off if sitting still. However once these shoes were on they were secure. These shoes looked great on and he would run around and seemed happy and comfortable in these shoes. They are also very supportive for growing feet. These shoes are the ones he will go to now and ask for these to be put on when we go out. The sole is ideal as designed to ensure they do not slip or slide. Ideal for grip when over the park, walking to the shops etc. I had not worries these would not grip surfaces and give Charlie the support he needed when walking, running and exploring as most little boys do. These seemed to allow his feet to breathe and the Velcro straps enabled us to ensure ideal fit for him when putting on. Charlie is too young to say what he liked about these shoes, but he would always go to pick these up for us to put on when we were going outside. Charlie would wear these every day on our walks out, trips to the park and when visiting grandparents and he would run around in their garden with ease. I think these are fantastic first walking shoes. They are a good fit, give Charlie’s feet the support he needs and ideal to walk on any surfaces without slipping or tripping. I loved the quality and ease of use of these shoes, certainly made to help little feet grow and develop as they start too walk and explore the world. These are well made, look stylish and soft and comfortable for Charlie to wear. Personally I find these shoes a bit on the expensive side. They are fantastic quality, but high price to keep purchasing when little feet grow so quickly. I have not purchased Start-Rite shoes before, but after receiving these and seeing the quality and the fit I will purchase in the future, but will look more to purchase once his feet have stopped growing so quickly, as if they last longer investment worth it. I would recommend these shoes as the quality, style, fit and comfort are superb. I have been very impressed with these Start-Rite shoes. An ideal first walking shoe and I will certainly look to buy his school shoes from this company and the quality and comfort and fit superb for my son. Just not full marks from me due to the cost, but if you are not worried about price these are the best shoes we have tried for Charlie and well worth the investment.
