Mummy Must Have Review | Attipas kids shoes + giveaway

It's no surprise to those of you who follow along here that I'm a little obsessed with shoes. Baby shoes to be specific. I find it hard to justify buying new shoes for myself, but for some reason when it comes to shoes for bub I don't fell guilty at all. Needless to say she has a lot more pairs of shoes than me and I'm sure that won't be changing any time soon.

Recently I was given the opportunity to review children's shoes from Attipas Australia and for probably the first time ever I said no to baby shoes. You see bub has a relatively large foot so she'd already be in size XXL and would be growing out of that soon {told you, really big feet}. So instead of reviewing a pair of shoes she wouldn't be in for very long I decided to pass the opportunity onto one of the mums from my mothers group. She has a little boy and she'd already been looking at Attipas shoes recently so I knew she'd appreciate being able to test them out.
Attipas shoes are unique non-slip shoes which ergonomically support infants when they first start walking and thereafter. Attipas shoes combine a sock and shoe into the one lightweight flexible, but supportive, product. The shoes are available in eight different styles and six different sizes. They're also fully machine washable. My friend chose to review the Attipas sneaker in grey. Her little guy is 2 and has been putting the shoes through their paces for a few weeks now and her feedback is below.

Design & Fit
I picked the grey colour because they went with all outfits but there's lots of options for different looks. I like the combination of the sock with shoe. This made it so easy to get dressed and ready to go out. No mucking around doing both socks and shoes. So much quicker. 

He liked wearing the shoes. They're soft and flexible. They're also wide enough for the little fat rounded feet of a toddler to fit in without any trouble.

Quality & durability
The quality is great, fabulous workmanship. I can't fault the quality. We've given them a hammering at the playground, and in the sandpit and lots of puddles. The bottom turned red from the new wood chips that had just been laid at the park, but we threw them in the washing machine after playing in the park and the shoes look like new again. The only down side to the shoes is I didn't realise that the shoes weren't water proof when he was jumping in the puddles. On that occasion I'd put socks on him underneath the shoes and they ended up very soppy.



Overall opinion
He loved wearing the shoes and never complained about wearing them as he did with some other shoes that I have bought in the past. I would give them a 9.5/10. Great shoes! I would definitely buy them again.

  5. I absolutely love these! What a great way to incorporate both the shoe and sock together. As a mother of a two year old myself, I can relate to the comment about shoes and socks - they are a thorn in my side!! My son also hates wearing shoes and by the sounds of it, he will find these comfortable. I can't go past the maritime themed pair - so adorable!

  37. To understand how ordinary shoes or New Balance toning shoes impact your life, it is necessary to understand how your feet impact your life. Impact being the key word here, many people don't recognize the dynamics involved in simply putting one foot in front of the other.

Kids' feet grow so fast that buying increasingly larger shoes for them is inevitable till they finally reach adulthood.
