    Exactly what a wee little man should be wearing, and exactly what my first wee little man wore 12 years ago. You won’t regret it. I posted a 12-years-later-revisit of them, still in their box, in January. So tiny and perfectly unscuffed still. What a moment.

      It was so a funny moment in the office everyone getting so emotional! when brought them home I showed the to ronnie, wincing, as I thought i might just get “don’t like them” but he beamed and we high fived! I going to keep them after his first year scuffs of his first school experience.

    Totally agree! All the boys’ school shoes we looked at were hideous. And my little one has such narrow heels that in the end, I had a choice of …. 1! But we know they will be cute as buttons, regardless. Hope it goes well, first day for us today!

    Now those I love. The Boy is in Doodles shaped like that and I adore them, I’ll be gutted when his feet are too big for them.

    Thanks for linking up
