Clarks Breena Dusk Boots
Advantages: Nice warm boots for winter
This is a review of Clarks Breena Dusk Boots which we recently bought for our daughter as we are heading in to the colder months, the sandals were retired and something more practical sought. I have always bought her Clarks shoes as they fit their feet properly although you can guarantee one thing, they will always be more expensive than many other children's shoe brands!
We headed in to the Clarks shop at Meadowhall (Sheffield) and the first thing we did was get her feet measured, as we usually do to check we are buying the right size and width. The service has a cheese counter style ticket machine to help with queues although it was not busy when we visited.
Sized and ready!
Once sized up, the shop assistant asked what we were after and if we had seen anything in particular we liked. We just said we wanted some boots and that she could bring some out in her size for us to try. Two pairs were produced, the Clarks Breena Dusk Boots being one of them.
I instantly loved the boots, the fake fur lined tops and light up detail on the sides appealed hugely. The boots are brown and made from a soft leather with rubber soles and an almost invisible rubber toe cap which prevents scuffs. They fasten with a zip up the sides which also have an embroidered picture of a fairy casting a spell on them which is quite charming.
Children's sizes 7 - 9 and a half are available (and all the half sizes in between) in the Clarks Breena Dusk Boots with F or G width fittings.
The boots are £40 to buy.
The boots are a little tough to get snugly on the foot at first and we have to give a good tug and instruction to our daughter to "push" her foot in but once they are in, they are easy to zip up. I don't think it's that they are too tight, I think they are just a good fit and after a few wearings this process is getting a bit easier. Our daughter loves wearing them and dances around in them to make the lights flash. It's going to be fun on Bonfire Night when it's pitch black outside and she is wearing these, we certainly won't lose her. I was tempted to buy the boots in a half size bigger than she needed but the shop assistant confirmed that there was plenty of toe space in the boots and that wasn't necessary. I just wanted to make sure they fit her to the end of winter!
These are the first pair of boots our 22 month old daughter has had (apart from wellington boots) and the shop assistant advised she might find them strange for a short while, with the support around her ankles. The next day I took her for a walk and she managed fine in the boots. They have already become a firm favourite and she loves wearing them and has even learned how to unzip them herself (which is not always useful!). They were expensive but look lovely on and I am pleased with our purchase. So far they have remained smart and have withstood a few outings and trips to the park and muddy fields.
Summary: Expensive but worth it
