This is the deal. These sandals are ugly (in my opinion of course!) and not what I imagine my cute little baby to be wearing. BUT, I am a practical person and I don't want her feet to hurt her whole life. So I want her to wear something supportive and safe.
Enter our little trip to Nordstrom on Saturday. This was after we've tried Natives and Crocs on her which are cuter. Natives didn't work because she has a high arch and she had circles indented on the top of her foot after 5 minutes of wearing them. We got a pair of Crocs that actually do work and Molly Anne loves them, I just don't know that she has enough coordination to keep them on unless the back strap is pretty tight. We're currently testing them out around the house so we'll see on those!
Took her to the shoe department and the lady suggested these and my response - NO WAY! My child isn't wearing hiking shoes to the beach!
But the more I learned about them, I knew they were a smart decision. She is going to be walking on uneven docks, shells in the creek and in water with unknown things on the bottom. She's a good walker but still not 100% perfect...she's not even 2 yet. Kevin was actually on this little trip to Nordstrom and he was even sold on them because of how practical they were. He wasn't as sold when he went to the register to pay but that's a different story! ;)
On to some MUCH cuter shoes that I also got for her this week! These Jack Rogers Little Miss Hamptons Sandals! Jack Rogers has never had sandals for between sizes 5-8 until this past week I think! My friend Margot alerted me to these and I ordered them instantly. Do not ever tell Kevin how much they were but they are ADORABLE. Got them on Saturday and Molly Anne said, "ohhhhhhh new shoes!" Not every day you get two new pairs of shoes ha!
So now Molly Anne has three pairs of shoes for this year - the jellys, the sandals and these dressy sandals! She is officially good to go in the shoe department!
