Fancy some shoes designed to give children the freedom to go where they want, how they want? Have a look at the beautiful boots we tested for you! Here is our full review in Baba Fashionista with Start-Rite!
Burst – First Boots in Navy
To test the new Start-Rite AW18 Collection, the brand kindly sent us a pair of Navy Burst Boots. Priced at 42.99, they are also available in brown and dark grey. But I always go for blue with Baba! It goes well with his wardrobe!
As soon as they arrived, I was impressed with the style. Lightweight, those ankle boots are very pretty and well designed.
The first little detail I loved? The double riptape fastening that makes them easy to get on. For a toddler like Baba, always in a rush to get on with adventures, they are perfect to learn how to put shoes on and off. He is very independent and we got him in the good routine to take off his shoes as soon as we are home (we have a very nice beige carpet!). He can manage on his own these ones (with a bit of help sometimes).
It gives him great satisfaction to be a big boy! And as a maman, I also like that it gives him a snug fit! Sometimes, shoes are too tight and not comfy. With that little extra strap, you can adjust it to your child’s needs! C’est fabuleux!
Such a Smart Style With Some Fab Features!
But it doesn’t stop there!
Those boots are very stylish and so light! I like nothing worse than shoes that feel too heavy. There is no way we can put them on without a tantrum. And vraiment, we are trying to avoid those as much as possible!
With our Start-Rite Burst Boots, no worries! Baba loves putting them on. They feel comfy and the flexible soles make it a great ally to walk with confidence.
Plus, because of its material, they have a good grip so no slipping!
And the leather is so resistant! They wear so well and no scuffs so far! God knows that Baba likes to go to the craziest places! So it a clear evidence that they are of very good quality!
We have had them for a couple of weeks and they still look as good as new! Winner!!!

Plus, I must mention the extra care that the brand gives to its customers! I always find it tricky to order clothes and shoes online. Worried that it would not fit and more. Feeling the same?
Start-Rite checked very carefully with us so that we ordered the right size for Baba. And it is a hit! The boots are mega comfy and here to last! I like them so much I bought another pair this week!

Good design will make shoes more attractive to small children. I’m thinking dinosaurs and unicorns, but when I was a child there was a brand that had wild animal footprints on the soles so that you could identify tracks. It was a great idea but didn’t work in an urban environment .
