Young Soles NZ
Wow, I guess I don’t need to tell some of you who live in small towns how exciting it is when something “new” comes to town!
For Kaikoura it is Young Soles NZ, we have had no shoe shops for kids. We have had the option of driving 2 hours north or 3 hours south to get to towns that have anything half pie decent UNTIL …. Isobel decided to start her new venture selling kids shoes – AWESOME kids shoes, Awesome NZ made kids shoes!!
Young Soles NZ stock McKinlays of Dunedin which are pure leather and very hardy, I have had my 7 year old put them to the test and boy does he test shoes! Below is an example of what I bought
I was probably a lot like some of you, buying cheap shoes because “they’ll only last a little while” my son uses his foot to stop himself when on his scooter, he kicks stones, he jumps and climbs and does all the things little boys do which are no good for shoes and more often than not he goes through on average 2 pairs a term! I was at my wits end specially since he has growing feet and having bad fitting or broken shoes are no good for support and all that jazz but most of all his little feet were getting wet due to holes in the soles and rain water getting in.
Well it was so funny, the other morning when I asked him if he enjoyed his new shoes he said ” Mum they are really comfy BUT even better did you know THEY ARE WATER PROOF! I ran through the wet grass the other morning and when I got into class my socks were dry.”
So there we go, a grand endorsement from a 7 year old!
Although these shoes are not cheap they are more than worth paying a little more for because they last! An extra bonus is that you get to deal with the lovely Isobel who will help you to choose the right shoe/s
I wish Isobel all the best in this new venture and hope that you mummies pop over and check out her page and share the love! xxx
