When you think of your babies first shoes you think of Clarks right? No matter how much you want those cute little shoes you’ve seen in your favourite store. Heading to Clarks for those all important first shoes is bit of a given.

Maybe it’s the measuring service, maybe it’s the years of knowledge or maybe it’s because they make the first shoe buying experience a truly memorable one.

Miss Marnie got her first shoes at Clarks – not little red T-bars as I had imagined – but a great soft pair of trainers that were perfect for cruising and her first steps. After her measuring we got a small printed picture on a keepsake card.

Now Clarks have made the whole experience a memorable one. From booking appointments online (and text reminders), expert fitting and a photograph to capture the moment. The photograph will be posted to you in a frame for you to keep (as well as a digital file to share with family and on Facebook!)

They have also created the Clarks Little Foot Health Lab – a brilliant section online with a great digital booklet to download offering tips, advice and information on all the stage of growing feet and some brilliant information ideas from newborn – 12 years.

Did you know?

* You should measure kids feet regularly – babies feet can grow upto 3 sizes in their first year. And, pre-schoolers grow on average 2 sizes per year until they are 5 years old.

* Badly designed shoes can cause problems for growing feet – get the right shoes for the right stage.

* Babies and toddlers feet should be washed and carefully dried daily and toenails trimmed regularly.

* Let them go barefoot – feeling the ground helps build confidence and lets feet breathe. Barefoot in shoes is always a good idea too – especially if the materials support and cushion the feet.

* If yo do choose socks/tights they should be made from at least 50% natural fibres like cotton to keep feet cool and fresh.

    There's something about a baby's feet and their tinny little shoes that are so cute!! Actually, this post reminds me I must take the girls to get their feet measured, it's been a few months now.

    My son's first pair of shoes (when he can walk) was a pair of Clark's, too. He had a few other pairs (Timberland, Nike) but it just didn't feel right or it was too difficult to put his chubby toes in!
