Crocs Kids Baya Clog
Advantages: Cute, good for feet
I hate crocs shoes for adults but for kids I think they are the cutest things ever. As soon as my daughter was old enough and her foot was big enough I bought her a gorgeous pair of these for summer last year and they were her favourite shoe and mine too as they are so versatile and quite stylish for little ones in my opinion. I actually purchased mine from the NExt online catalogue and bought hers in a size 4/5 in the fuschsia colour which is a darkish pink. They also come in light pink, different shades of green, black and different shades of blue so they are perfect for boys too.
I find it quite hard to buy shoes for my little girl as she has quite small, thin feet and so regular sandals just don't work for her so to have a pair of these which do not need to fit perfectly but more importantly that stay on and are good to her feet well that's definitely a bonus in my opinion. There is a plastic strap at the back of the crocs that hold her ankle in really well and prevent her foot from slipping out but the strap is not too tight that the shoes hurt her or rub against her foot in any way which is great. This strap can be moved forward so that it allows the shoe to become a slip on but we don't do this to the crocs as I think she is not old enough for slip on shoes yet and probably would not be able to hold the shoe on her foot but its nice that the choice is there. On each side there is a cute little picture of a croc which is obviously part of their logo. Apparently, according to the crocs website, "Loose fit allows feet to bend and expand naturally, reducing fatigue." We found that my little girl could wear these shoes for hours and didn't need to take them off. She is able to run in them and play in them with no problems. The shoes are pretty sold and have quite a heavy tread and with her literally wearing them all alast summer they are still looking as good as new and show no signs of wear on the bottom. Also the website also goes on to say that the, "Footbed conforms to foot creating custom fit and increased arch support and circulation nubs stimulate blood flow." So, as you can see these are well thought out shoes and not just a jelly shoe or something like that which in my opinion offers no support.
The shoes are perfect for summer as they are full of holes. Full of holes in a good way though. On the side you will find the crocs logo in cut out shapes. This provides the functional benefit of increased ventilation as well as all the ventilation you get from the back being open and the holes in the front of the shoe too. Sometimes if it was a bit cold my little girl would wear socks with these but they are really meant for bare feet. We have some fountains in our town that kids can run through and play in and these shoes were perfect for that as it doesn't matter if they get wet because they dry instantly with no damage. The holes actually allow you to attach JibbitzTM brand charms to them but we never did that to these so I cannot comment on these but it may be something I get her when she is a bit older.
These shoes are loose enough that she will be able to wear them this summer too so I think we have really got our wear and money's worth out of them. Each pair costs £19.99 and although I mentioned I got mine in Next you can also purchase them from the Crocs website at: http://www.crocs.co.uk/crocs-kids-baya/10190,en_GB ,pd.html?cgid=girls-footwear.
