  • 5 stars out of 5Super First Shoe

    Claire, bury st. edmunds

    Really hard wearing, washable (essential!) and nice flexible sole. These are my LO's first shoe. Really pleased. Thank you Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5simply wonderful

    My 1 year old would not keep his shoes on! He doesn't even notice these. They're very stylish and go with most things in his wardrobe. We have them in red. He's had them 3 days and he's already doing better with his standing. Wonderful price as well. Very pleased with my purchase! :) will be back once he starts walking which shouldn't be too long now

  • 5 stars out of 5Perfect summer shoe :)

    RACHEL, egham

    I have bought these time and time again. They really are the perfect summer shoe, they're easy to put on, lightweight and the right thinness for the hotter weather when they need more protection on their feet than what sandals can offer! :)

  • 4 stars out of 5nice comfy shoe

    sonal, hounslow

    I always prefer clarks shoes for my baby (now 19 months) and would recommend this to all as they are very comfortable and allow free movement of feet.This shoe is no different.Very comfortable and good for summer..nice grip.Baby wears it without fuss. Draw back, finishing not as good as was expected from clarks shoes.

  • 5 stars out of 5I love these wee shoes.

    Marie from portstewart

    I bought these for my wee boy due to our complete lack of summer! The poor weather has meant he can't wear his sandals much and I don't want to have him in his 'proper' shoes all the time. They are lovely wee casual shoes and look great with jeans or shorts. I think he actually now looks quite grown up and a bit of a cool dude in these. Thanks Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5Great, practical and attractive

    David from paisley

    These little canvas shoes are great for when your sons trying to take his first steps as they are so light for him to walk in out and about!! Also I'm rather fussy with the look of the shoes i put on my son and feel with clarks it's hard to find a nice pair that are trendy but these are definitely one of the more attractive pairs and are a sort of converse look a like. Very happy with the product and they fit my sons feet perfectly!! Would recommend to anyone.

    Kerry from st. neots

    We brought these little shoes for our 10 month old baby and they are lovely. Only had them on half an hour and got a lovely comment about them from a complete stranger. The lady that served us was really helpful and friendly and had only been working in the store a week. Great service and product. Will defiently be going back in the next few weeks when he will be due some more.

  • 5 stars out of 5Great first shoes!

    Carolyn, stranraer

    Ordered these online for my toddlers first "proper" shoes. Got him measured instore but none available in his size. Ordered from website and received well within the estimated delivery time. Free delivery too which is always a bonus! These are great wee shoes. Fit really well and he seems to find them comfortable. Look smart and go with all outfits. I liked the price too. Childrens shoes to me seem to be overpriced but £15 is more than reasonable in my opinion. Thanks Clarks - would definitely recommend!

  • 5 stars out of 5Fantastic Little Doodles

    My little boy needed a pair of light weight shoes for the summer and we decided on the Doodles Little Chap navy blue shoe and I must state that they are brilliant, also on the plus side when they get dirty you can put them in the washing machine and they come out looking like new. They are a must, well done Clarks.

    These are FAB. Easy to put on/take off, my 16 month old does the velcro himself. Look amazing in jeans, joggers or just about anything. Would 100% recommend. Will be buying the next size up when ready.

  • 5 stars out of 5Excited and Disappointed

    I was really excited to find these shoes - finally some properly flat (no heel whatsoever), flexible shoes with a wide toe, widely available and at a really sensible price. Unfortunately, my son has just been measured as a 6 and they only go up to 5 1/2. I would love if the basic model of these shoes came in all sorts of styles, for example, school shoes and party shoes, and I'd put both my kids in them for as long as I have a say over what shoes they wear! Unfortunately I'll just have to keep looking.

  • 5 stars out of 5Excellent!!!

    I bought these as a second pair of shoes for my little boy as they were more casual and they look great. Perfect for spring/summer with jeans or shorts and would be great for holidays. Excellent price but not as padded or supportive on the sole as his other "proper" shoes. Overall though excellent service and advice as always with Clarks!

    The first pair of shoes my son hasnt messed with - i have tried clarks doodles with the buckle velcro crawling shoes and little winter boots earlier in the year none of which my son would keep on - these are by far the best and really pleased with the fit have ordered in 2 sizes very impressed !

  • 4 stars out of 5Doodles

    j, cambridge

    Very disappointed in this years doodles which had straps far too short to do up across wide feet. After 3 unsuccessful trips to 3 stores we had to settle for baby cruisers despite my son being 19 months and walking for 8 months because these were the only ones to do up comfortably. Ordered blue online as only had red in store and they are lovely although a bit flimsy for a confident walker.

  • 3 stars out of 5Disappointing quality but looked great when new

    Zoe, leiston

    I returned these and exchanged for a different style. I purchased as a second pair of shoes for my little boy. They had barely been worn but looked a bit grubby. As I was told they were machine was gavel I decided to put them in my machine for a refresh. I used fairy non bio, and washed on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees. When I took them out I was really disappointed. They came out faded and patchy and looked really worn out! Not the quality I expect from Clarks. They did look lovely on before they were washed. They fitted well and I was happy until I washed them. Feedback from Erin at Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review. All of our new designs and materials are tested before they go on sale, so this seems very unusual. As you have been left feeling disappointed please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate. All returns are logged for feedback to our design teams and this information is used to help us improve for the future.

  • 2 stars out of 5Disappointing

    Nelli from winsford

    When I saw previous reviews of these shoes I wanted to buy one for my boy, but they were out of stock for his size. When they came back in stock i thought great I shall get him a pair as they were not as expensive as the leather shoes on clarks online. When the shoes arrived i was very disappointed. They didn`t look like proper shoes... more like denim velcro sleepers. Clarkes shoes even the crawlers are always very well made have a proper shape to them, so i was disappointed about these. My son is already wearing more substantial shoes, and you can buy great looking canvas shoes from other shops a lot cheaper. They might be good for younger children who are new to walking. They were certainly not suitable for my 20 month old son. I sent them back and bought another pair of clarks (more substantial) shoes.

    Clare from chessington

    Love this summer shoe and really wanted to get them for my son. Sadly he is a size 4H and they don't make them in this width. I was very disappointed as there is now only one option and that is a normal pair of doodles, which they only do in one design for boys.... :o( Feedback from Clarks: To ensure the most choice for all our customers, our doodles have adjustable fastenings to accommodate different width fittings. A trained fitter in store will be able to advise you further on suitable styles.

  • 4 stars out of 5Brilliant shoe, Not so brilliant delivery!

    Callie-ann, crewe

    I ordered these shoes for my 1 year old after reading all the brill reviews and going to get him fitted for his first pair of shoes a little while ago. They definitely live up to the fab reviews...look like a fab first shoe and have flexible soles for those first wobbly steps! The only problem I've had is that I was out when they got delivered and the delivery driver had not posted a leaflet through my door explaining where he had left my parcel! I didn't recieve an email to let me know where it was either! luckily I have fab neighbours that had let me know they had got my parcel otherwise anybody could have stolen it!

  • 2 stars out of 5Bit disappointing!

    Holly from bolton

    I too got these shoes for my daughter as they match more of her clothing than the pink ones! Couldn't believe how cute they looked and how reasonably priced they were. They took some severe bashing over first seven days and I was thrilled to know they were washable or so the info said! I washed them once, according to the instructions, and the colour faded unevenly across both shoes - certainly no longer looked a week old! Would have taken them back but I'd binned the receipt, she hasn't worn them since. I guess should have known you get what you pay for - be warned!!! Feedback from Clarks: We’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase. We do thoroughly test all our products before they go on sale, so the issue you describe seems unusual. Please return to one of our stores with proof of purchase (such as a bank statement if you have it in place of the receipt) so the manager can look into it for you. We will happily refund or replace any items deemed as faulty.

  • 2 stars out of 5A little disappointing

    We were sold these shoes in Clarks as my son's first walking shoes however it turns out these aren't walking shoes at all, but cruising shoes, of which he already had a pair - put a bit of a downer on this little milestone so I'm not overly disappointed that the 'first shoes' photo never arrived in the post. Nevertheless they are neutral in colour, go with everything, are comfortable, light weight and easy to get on/off. Quite whether they have been providing sufficient support to his feet and ankles whilst walking in them I don't know, but I appreciate it was hard to find anything in store small enough for his size 3 feet! I am quite disappointed in the quality and value for money given that Clarks are supposed to be the best for children's shoes. Within a few days the shoes had watermarks on them where the fabric had become a different (purple) shade. The white rubber is permanently grey and difficult to clean and when I machine washed them (on their own on a cool wash with a tiny amount of detergent) the white stitching has become very grubby looking. He's had them for about 10 weeks and some of the fabric and stitching is starting to fray on the straps. For what I consider to be a 'day to day' shoe they haven't stood up to the test of a busy 1 year old and they look really quite tatty - I wouldn't mind so much if I'd paid a fiver in Asda but I didn't and I expected better. It's probably a good job he's about to grow out of them and I'm hoping there will be a more robust walking shoe/trainer available in the next size that won't cost the earth! Feedback from Clarks: We are very proud of the quality of our products and to ensure this all our new designs and materials are tested before they go on sale.  If you are disappointed with any of our products please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate. Many thanks
