I have just discovered pram shoes - new baby shoes - from Clarks, and without seeing them, my first impression is that they've got it so so wrong.
On their website they say:
We still believe barefoot is best. But sometimes, perhaps when baby’s out and about in their pram or pushchair, it’s good to know that those tiny feet are safe, snug and sound.
So it would appear they are just a pram shoe which is what they're calling them BUT, there are so many mixed messages within the website, as there are shoes pictured when you click on crawling.
Features the Lucy Lou which has a buckle...
Four shoes are pictured when you are here: http://www.clarks.co.uk/first-shoes/crawling
And the pram shoe which should/could be soft enough to crawl, has a toggle on the front, which wouldn't be nice to dig into little feet when crawling, hence why they define it as a pram shoe maybe....?
I prefer the current equivalent, (pre shoes) which are cheaper, do not have a toggle, and which we received Saturday and blogged about here
I don't know if I am wrong, because crawling and babies and shoes are new to me, being a first time mum, but I personally find the Clarks' website very confusing...
Oh, and I have just noticed the "handle" on the back of these new pram shoes - that would just help Aaron get them off, and what I love about the pre shoes is that they stay on (even without a toggle).
And one more thing:
they show a beautiful box that they will arrive in, and on the box it says "first shoes" yet they are calling them pram shoes. Maybe I am a bit of a geek but I like things to have one name...!
Something tells me this product's been launched in too much of a hurry or something?
Back for an additional comment. Just found 3 mummy bloggers who've reviewed the Clarks pram shoes... 2 of them got someone else to do it........? and the 3rd, the baby hasn't been born yet, so the review is based on her current opinion till they try them on....
Clarks, why can't you send your shoes to bloggers with babies that they will fit...?
