Cool, comfortable footwear for children is so hard to come buy. Especially on the high street. It’s not all to my taste, but I must applaud M&S for the Walkmates range. Kitty’s silver Mary Janes were indestructible and I’m loving these pale grey leather Chelsea boots with yellow detail, Â£28. They are available in sizes from 4 to 9 and have an elastic insert and zip. And, despite being in the boys’ section, they are resolutely unisex – unfortunately they don’t go up to Alfie’s size, but they’re going on Kitty’s wishlist!
