Seeing as we had a baby boy first, it seemed that Emily might be destined to wear black and blue shoes and sandals for a looong while. That is until Jack and Lily sent her a precious, girly pair of shoes. Jack and Lily carries a HUGE selection of baby shoes and baby slip-ons that are handcrafted using premium grade leathers and skid resistant suede or TPR soles which are perfect for developing those little feet!
Emily received the Chocolate Lovebirds shoe from Jack and Lily's MY shoes section. These shoes are delicate, flexible, and the pink lovebirds stitched on the front makes them unique and perfect for any little girl. Unfortunately, I do have one major disappointment that arose when these cute little shoes arrived. I was looking forward to having a pair of shoes with a TPR (flexible rubber) sole...after all, this is what is advertised on the website. When I received the shoes they had only a very thin suede sole - basically, I'd say that I would only use them indoors...as a slipper. Although they are soft, and are as lightweight as can be, in my opinion, they are just not practical for us to use as an outdoor shoe. I also prefer the flexible rubber sole for Emily since she seems to be able to balance and walk a lot better with something a bit firmer on the bottom of her shoe. So, although I love the looks of these shoes, I am very disappointed that the shoes did not have the features the Jack and Lily claims that it has. (Note: I did discuss this with the company, and they mentioned that they have switched certain sizes over to the style I have...however, it is not advertised at all on their website and therefore this would explain my extreme disappointment with receiving a pair of shoes that did not meet my expectations).
Jack and Lily also has a great selection of slip-ons which are made from a softer leather and feature a suede sole.
Jack and Lily is giving one of our lucky readers their own pair of Jack and Lily shoes. The winner can choose the shoes of their choice! In order to get one entry, head over to Jack and Lily and let me know what pair you'd choose if you won.
