Start-Rite Shoes Product Manager, Sara Driscoll, shares her favourite boots from our AW19 collection.
Chelsea is a timeless classic and a favourite of mine, simply because it’s versatile and stylish. We have an array of fun Chelsea boots this winter from camouflage to polka dot, but my personal favourite is our iconic navy with floral elastic. Our Chelsea boots are leather lined and have an inside zip, so easy to put on and take off. You can also get party ready this winter with the silver sparkly patent too!
New this winter we have our little first steps bootie called Dream with a cute flower trim. Dream is tailored to tots as the sole is lightweight and flexible, plus the rip-tape fastening is easy for little fingers. It also has a toe bumper at the heel and toe to add protection whilst being put through its paces! Available in dark cherry and black patent.
Splish! Splash! Splosh! Our waterproof Splash boots are perfect for puddle jumping! Available in a classic brown or a navy blue. I’ve chosen this boot within my top styles as I love the floral embroidery as it adds a craftsmanship feel and a charm to an adventurous boot!
Our winter stitch-down boot Footstep has made it into my selection, as I adore how a simple and traditional style can looks so stylish. Available in berry, navy and grey suede – it’s a great unisex boot. There’s no fuss for little ones putting them on either as they benefit from a wider rip-tape fastening. And can you spot the subtle Start-Rite twins embossing on the strap? A nod to our heritage.
Classic yet stylish - our unisex First Chelsea boot in khaki is new for AW19. It has a super lightweight and flexible sole, leather lining and is made with soft leather that moulds to the shape of the foot. It has heel and toe bumpers making it perfect for both boys and girls, parks, parties and all things fun. It’s available up to a small 9.5 this season.
If you are looking for a relaxed casual boot then style Whisper is the perfect choice. It’s available in black and tan leather suede, so it can be worn as a school boot or outside of the playground. It has an inside zip to help kids take the boot on and off easily. It also benefits from breathable mesh lining and a lightweight sole for added comfort. But what I really like about this style is the subtle bow detail, sweet but discreet.
