A clever little idea from Italy, Giulive galoshes are made from silicone rubber and designed to be worn over children’s shoes to protect them from mud, sand, grass etc. They come in four eye-popping shades – blue, fluoro green, neon yellow and fuchsia – and four sizes – from 20 to 29 EU – and live in cute little cylindrical containers, meaning they can easily be popped into a bag (unlike wellies). We received some to try and the kids absolutely loved them – Kitty didn’t want to take hers off. I think they’ll be invaluable for keeping in the car in case of impromptu visits to the beach or allotment. Â£14.90,Â Amazon.
