The animals went in two by two…
If all "good things come in pairs" and if jelly and ice-cream and bangers and mash are anything to go by, it's best when these pairs aren't identical. Lelli Kelly, the Italian children's shoe brand, has taken this mantra to heart with their new Zoo collection that lets children choose individual shoe designs to create their own customised pair.
The shoes feature cute animal designs that are perfect for any little girl who's ever fancied bringing a few new friends home from the zoo. With an elephant, zebra, pelican and giraffe to choose from, there are characters to keep everyone happy. So if she fancies an elephant on her left foot and a zebra on her right, or simply two elephants, all you need to do is order one left and one right shoe and they'll be delivered in their own individual boxes.
It's advisable to double check you've ordered one of each before you confirm your order or she could end up with two left feet (quite literally!), and that the sizes match up across the pair. Once you've ordered your left and right shoes they'll be delivered in colourful individual shoe boxes featuring bright and bold animal designs. They're an ideal place to store these fabulous new shoes to keep them in tip-top condition.
And if animals aren't her style choice? The new Lelli Kelly collection also includes floral designs, smart patent pumps and trainers, complete with psychedelic peace signs and polka dots that are ideal for hippie chicks.
And if she's really adventurous, there's the all-over glitter style of the new Bow Glitter Dolly shoes . For something a little more sedate, they also have a wide range of high gloss styles in a spectrum of colours. Every shoe has a breathable inner sole made from perforated leather, and a light and flexible outer sole that's anti-skid, so their growing feet will remain comfortable and supported all day.
But, before you think Lelli Kelly is just about glitter, animal prints and bright colours, let me reassure you there's more to these shoes than simply sparkling good looks. Each shoe is high quality, supportive and comfortable; ideal for growing feet that are always on the go.
And as they're still made in Italy, they're extremely hardwearing and durable, so she'll be wearing them for months to come.
