One thing I love about having kids is having cute funky little shoes, everything always look better in miniture form let’s be honest ?
So when after tweeting with BumpwearClaire for a while I realised she also had a kids shoe business called Little Stomper I was super excited. Addison was coming up 7 months and showing signs of walking so I knew little cruiser shoes were needed.
I headed off to Little Stomper and had a super long wish list, I knew I couldn’t have it all so I restricted myself to one pair per bubba.
I fell in love with Grayson’s shoes immediately. they reminded me of Bowling Shoes, which I am a serious sucker for Bowling Shoes. I had chosen the brand Little Blue Lambs, Squeaky Shoes, they have little squeakers in the heels that go off as they walk (which can be removed for sanity), obviously I thought this was not of any interest to Grayson, how wrong I was, these shoes have been the biggest enjoyment factor for us as a family.
Every time Grayson kicks his feet in his wheelchair the shoes squeak, he then giggles and repeats, he did this for 4 hours solid as we walked around Bluewater Shopping Centre. So these shoes are the best money I have ever spent.
We also bought Addison a cute pair of Silver Squeaky Shoe Sandals, she finally got to wear them this week, her face was an absolute picture as she walked around and squeaked, Addy has been a little reluctant to walk in shoes, but not the Squeaky Shoes.
All in all I am over the moon with Little Stomper for
The various awesome funky footwear they have to offer
The very reasonable prices for high-end shoes
The whole shopping process with Little Stomper is excellent
Claire provides a foot measuring chart you can print off, a fab Twitter and Email service if you have any questions and free P&P in the UK.
Once you head over to Little Stomper, you probably wont look anywhere else, I haven’t and since have bought both babies a 2nd pair of shoes from Little Stomper and I know it wont be the last, now I turn you over to Claire of Little Stomper to give you a little more insight into her company.
1.Who is Little Stomper and what do you sell ?
We’re an online kids footwear store focusing on funky things for your children’s feet. We’re all about great brands that offer quality products that are comfy and cool! Many of these brands also have great ethical credentials; you can read about these on each of the products details. You’ll find on Little Stomper brands you already know and love, plus some kooky little designers we have found whilst out and about.
Little Stomper is a family run business, managed by me Claire, Mummy and Grandma to little Lola who has the best footwear collection ever. Probably.
2.What made you start Little Stomper ?
When Lola was up and walking I was really disappointed with the footwear choices available on the high street. I also wanted to stop doing the long hours the day job took and decided, with the support of my mother-in-law to take the plunge and go for it.
3. Is this a Hobby of Full Time Commitment ?
Absolutely a full time commitment. It’s hard work getting the store out there, but we’re doing okay and every time I get a repeat customer my heart does a little jump of joy!
4.Where can you buy Little Stomper Products ?
5. Do you have any exciting news for the future?
Yes. We’re looking at some new brands for AW12 but I need to keep stum about them just now. We’re also investigating having a pop up shop in Chichester. We will be keeping everyone posted on these on our facebook page and via our newly launched business blog.
6. Is there anything else you would like us to know about Little Stomper ?
Yes. We care about children’s feet. All the shoes we stock are cut wide at the toe, we don’t stock any shoes that are narrow/pointed at the toe as children’s feet have to be able to spread and move. We buy shoes which have flexible soles so they do not rob children of the free use foot – those bones are still doing their thing, they don’t need to be forced in to unnatural shapes.
And we offer free UK shipping, and also ship internationally.
So thanks for taking the time to read about Little Stomper and the bubba’s cute shoes, don’t forget to tell Claire of where you came from.
