New Shoes – Skeanie Review and Competition

The winner was picked using random.org and is  Lesley Renshaw

Well Done, please email writingsramblingsreviews@hotmail.co.uk with your choice of shoes and size.

——————————————————————

Shoe shopping with kids is always a bit of a nightmare, especially if the shops are busy and your little one is tired! Mouse loves shoes, she is a proper girly girl in this respect and can often be found trying on all the shoes in the hall regardless of size, style and owner! She just loves test running them, to find the ones she likes!
So, when SKEANIE emailed and asked if I could review a pair of theirs we quite literally jumped at the chance!

SKEANIE was founded by a mum of two in Australia, after realising that finding high quality soft leather shoes was a challenge. Since then SKEANIE has won much acclaim and is now the preferred provider of the Australian Podiatry Association

There is a whole range of shoes, boots and some other bits for infants and juniors (the biggest size is a European size 28, approximately a UK 10.5), We looked around the website and finally picked the Mary Jane Style in Pink , there is a handy size guide on the website too, to help select your size! Then we waited for them to arrive!

Knock Knock, went the door at 7am, I ran downstairs bleary eyed to find the postman stood there with a package, I open it, saw the pink shoes and smiled, they were gorgeous and so soft! I had been a little sceptical that leather shoes could be soft, but these really are! I showed them to hubby (who wasn’t that interested to be fair at that time in the morning) but he was equally impressed and even commented on how soft they were!

We tried them on the Mouse and she loved them instantly, they were a titchy bit big but I think that is more to do with the fact that she is in between sizes than anything else! Despite this she said they were comfy and she was running, jumping, climbing and sitting with them in no time. I had a minor mum moment of ‘don’t ruin the shoes, they are so pretty’ but I soon got over that when I realised just how much she loved them! (To clarify this point I will share that when it was Mouse’s nap time, she got so upset at having to take them off that I had to bribe her – whilst the tears were flowing – with putting them in a special box to keep them safe!

So, what’s Mummy and Daddy’s verdict? A massive thumbs up! They are stylish, comfy, soft (both top and sole), they have a bumper on the front to protect from scuffs and at the back they are elasticised! What more could you want from kids shoes? The price of the ones we had is £34.99 which is pretty much the same as if you were ordering from elsewhere! Bookmark the SKEANIE website now for your future shoe purchases.

You can find SKEANIE on Facebook where they are currently running a competition to win a pair of shoes, and even better news is that they have offered a pair of shoes for one of you to win here too!

Competition!

The prize is one pair of shoes of the winner’s choice. Just a reminder that the biggest size is a European 28 (Approx UK 10.5). So what do you have to do?
