“ Brand: Peacocks / Type: Boots „
A couple of months ago I bought my daughter a pair of soft winter boots but these were immediately ruined due to the material so I decided I needed to buy something a little more sturdy. That's when I came across these flower boots in peacocks and as they were only priced at £ 14 I thought them a bargain. These boots are part of the winter collection at peacocks and are specific to the young girl range. They are available in sizes 4 to 12 and are also available in two colours; grey and pink. I will be focusing on the grey boots as these are what I purchased but apart from the colour both pairs of boots are exactly the same. The boots are completely leather (or leather looking), excluding the flower decoration down the side which is a more soft fabric. The design of the boot is lovely and very well detailed. The flower decoration on the side of each boot is very intricate and pretty, it is even decorated with a small button which makes up the mid-section of the flower. As well as the decoration on the side there is a lovely flower pattern which is just visible on the outer side of the boot which then goes inside the boot at the top. The boots are easy to get on and off, it takes no hassle at all, the inside of the boot has a zip which completely goes from top to bottom enabling the foot to just slide in. My daughter has never complained about the shoes being uncomfortable and these are usually the first she will go to when asked to get her shoes out of the cupboard so she must like them. The only problem I have with these shoes is that they are easily scuffed; within days of purchasing them they got scuff marks on the front but although the marks are quite large it's not totally noticeable because of the dark colour of the shoes, I think the pink coloured boots might be more of a problem. Apart from the easy scuffing I think the shoes are great quality for the price. Due to the material they are easy to clean which was the most important thing for me, especially with all the mud etc. that are sure to get on them during the winter. Also the sole of the shoe is made from rubber which is hard wearing, easy to walk in and it ensures my daughter doesn't fall over; this is extremely handy, especially as it starts to get slippery during the winter. The shoes also aren't completely flat, I wouldn't say it had a heel but there is a defined raise towards the back end of the boot, this has caused no problems for us and my daughter is just as able to walk in these as she is with any other shoes. I would definitely recommend these boots, they are a decent quality for the price and they will keep little feet warm during the winter. They are also very versatile and look nice with many different styles and items of clothing. The only downside as mentioned before is the scuffing but this could be prevented with a range of sprays or boot polishes.
