Not so long ago I blogged about how Isis had out grown all her shoes and we had bought her a few new pairs including these beautiful knee high boots from Start Rite. We had bought them all some new black patent Dr Martens and I also bought Isis a pair of party shoes and these gorgeous tan leather knee high boots from Start Rite as they looked like they would go really well with a lot of her new clothes.
Last weekend was the first time she chose to wear them, teamed with this gorgeous check dress shirt from Next Autumn Winter collection 15/16 I could see that my days of guiding her fashion choices is long becoming a thing of the past. Gone are the days of crazy thrown together outfits that looked like a rainbow had thrown up on her. As happy as those outfits were, she has developed a great little style all of her own. Choosing clothes that she likes when we go shopping together, her taste has really matured, but she still looks like a little girl. Eek, she’s growing up too quickly. Scary really.
These boots are a great staple to a wardrobe as in this colour and fabric she could wear them with casual midi dresses in the summer months. She can wear them with skinny jeans tucked in, underneath boyfriend style jeans (although they’d be wasted hidden, she has plenty of other shoes she could wear with those), with city shorts, skirts. They’re just so versatile. The most important thing of course is that she fell in love with them as soon as she saw them. The great thing about buying knee high boots from Start-rite is that Isis says they are really, really comfy. You’ve got that great support and well fitting shoe that they need while their feet are still growing with added style. I would never have expected to find knee high boots from Start-rite, I just didn’t associate the brand with fashion. I imagined all the pairs we’ve bought from them over the years. Great for little ones that are learning to walk and especially up until about age 7 as their little feet are so precious and the bones are still soft.
We bought these from Alex and Alexa but you can find the style ‘Gallop‘ available elsewhere.
