Mummy Must Have Review | Caroch Minnie Chocolate Boots

I think its safe to assume that you're all probably well aware of my addiction to Tiptoe & Co shoes by now {well those who follow me on Instagram definitely are}. So it probably comes as no surprise that we've added to our collection again. To be honest I add to her collection every month, but these ones are extra special so I'm sharing them with you guys. Bub got her first pair of little boots this month and the cuteness is overwhelming.

She's been growing up so quickly lately that every day she looks a little bit more like a little girl, especially now that her hair is getting so long. Seeing her in these boots takes it to a whole other level. She looks like a real "big girl" now which is both exciting and bitter sweet, but so freakin adorable.


Her new boots are the chocolate Minnie boots by Caroch. They're leather and are lined with faux fur to make them extra comfy and warm. They're warm enough for her to wear in the cool weather that's just reared its head, but the lining is also thin enough that they're ok for QLD. Its always hard to find good boots for QLD because a lot of them are usually lined too much that they're just too hot for up here. These ones have just the right amount of lining and its super soft {which is probably why she grabs the shoes and puts them on herself when we're at home}. 

The Minnie boots also have cute ruffle and bow detailing on the outer side which gives a nice little age appropriate feminine touch. The inner side has a velcro opening the height of the boots which makes it really easy to get them on and off. So easy infact that she quickly discovered she could put them on herself {I think she worked that out the day after we got them}, now we just have to work on getting the right shoe on the right foot. Even when she doesn't get them on the right foot its so cute watching her run around so proud of herself for putting her shoes on.

They also have squeakers in the soles so I know exactly where she is at all times. I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with squeaky soles lately, but they've proven to be quite useful when we're out. At the hospital the other day she kept trying to dart off and everyone was giving me looks because of her shoes and then one lovely lady said she thought all toddlers should have squeaky shoes so everyone could tell where they were incase they tried to hide or run away. Its so true. When we're at home though I sometimes swap them over with the non squeaky valves just to give my ears a break. Because she likes to stomp really hard to make them squeak really loud and it can get old really quickly when we're at home {thankgod they come with spare non-squeaky valves}.

The Caroch Minnie boots can be purchased via Tiptoe & Co in both chocolate. The RRP is $45, but like all their shoes, Tiptoe & Co sell them for below the RRP at only $39.95. I think $39.95 is a great price for leather boots as I know Caroch are good quality and will last. I got them in the next size up that's about 10mm bigger than her foot size now so she'll be able to wear them all through winter.

  2. Toni these boot are gorgeous and Bub models them so well!
    I think I'd have to say those boots are my favourite, love the neutral brown and the idea of how easy they are to put on and off with the Velcro. Our Miss 4 wouldn't fit into them though with her big foot so I'd be purchasing a pair of the Snoffy Kids Blaire Watermelon shoes for her, they're gorgeous!
    PS - I loved it when I could finally pull our Miss 4's hair into a pony tail without it falling out, enjoy every moment Toni, Bub is a little sweetie. xx

    1. I love putting her hair up and the back part is finally long enough to stay in a pony too, but she looks about 4 when I put her hair back. I just got 2 more pairs of shoes today, I'm addicted to them!

    1. The only reason I didn't get the red is because she doesn't have many clothes with red on them, otherwise I'd probably get both!

  10. With a review like that how could the Caroche Minnie boots not be my favourite! Especially with the weather turning so cold I love these boots. They are soo cute with the ruffle, the fur lining makes them very functional for this weather, and I love shoe squeakers (even if they occassionally drive me mad).

  20. Winter boots come in all kinds, from Eskimo inspired mukluks, moon boots and soft soled moccasins to laced up logger's or hiking styles and cowboy boot overshoes. Which kind you decide upon depends on you and how much you are concerned about fashion and comfort, where you are going to wear them and what you will be doing.I find this website for Winter Best Work Boots you can visit this site.
