In Scandinavia all towns and villages will have a children’s shoe and footwear shop with a descent selection. In the UK I’ve found that buying shoes for your child a lot more challenging. There are only a handful of children’s shoe shops with a limited selection of brands in store, mostly only school shoes, wellies and glittery ballerinas.
But children’s shoes is so much more than that! Angulus, Bisgaard, Bundgaard, and Pom Pom Sko are among our favourites in addition to funky fashion shoes from Melton and Molo Kids. When attending the trade shows there’s endless of racks filled up with styles and colours, and when you know what’s available it’s so disappointing most of it never reaches the shops and made available to the British consumers. Are we really only interested in black school shoes and red wellies?
Some online shops bringing a selection of children’s shoes to the British market:

I can’t believe that there’s not a market for a proper children’s shoe shop in London, with a wonderful selection of Scandinavian, Italian, Spanish, French and Austrian shoes for tiny feet. What do you think? Where do you shop for children’s shoes and are you happy with the selection?
