“ Brand: Lelli Kelly / Type: Shoe „
Lelli Kelly are for most young girls that I know the equivalent of the women's Jimmy Choo. They just have to have them! Coupled with the fact that they have a very on the ball marketing team who put together the most annoying adverts on TV at times when they know these children will see them, they make all little girls go weak at the knees!
My eldest daughter who is 6 had some Lelli Kellys a couple of years ago but when she recently asked for some Lelli Kelly school shoes I plain refused, as although they do a school range I don't think they are suitable to wear at school. So when it was around her birthday and grandma asked what she could buy I told her she could get them a pair of Lelli Kelly's each (they have birthdays very close together!).
At just short of £50 for each pair, they are really expensive children's shoes, but my girls feet don't ever ever seem to grow so they do last quite a while! These particular pair are £47.50 and with them you can expect to receive a pink light up hair extension clip in and a magic ring.
For those of you who don't know what Lelli Kellys are, you cannot miss them. They are white canvas shoes with an array of sparkles, jewels, you name it, it's got it. They are usually decorated in a particular pattern or theme and these particular shoes have bees and flowers which are decorated in the jewels and sequins. They are quite 'blingy' if you like, but with a simple top and a pair of leggings they look fab. We have gone through the stage of them wanting them to wear them at every given opportunity and to be honest they go with most things, except party dresses!
They have a velcro strap so are ideal for children who haven't learnt to tie laces yet. My youngest can put them on with no problems at all, and she is 4. The fastening has a pink glitter strap and says Lelli Kelly across. The edge of the sole which is pink also says Lelli Kelly on the side in white.
The insoles inside are removable. This is handy if they get stinky feet (!), as you can just chuck in the washer (although the whole shoe will wash in the washing machine if you put it in a canvas bag or a pillow case), but they are also handy if their feet have grown, you can simply remove the insole and gain an extra few weeks use out of them.
Both of my daughters say they feel very comfortable and when they were trying them on, the lady in the shop explained they are really good for growing feet as they are so supportive. They are soft inside and the rubber soles are perfect for young children running around.
After just quickly googling the price of these, I have seen that Charles Clinkard have them in the sale, so you can now pick these particular pair up for £32.50.
