Kick Ass Blogger!


Remember the days when you had to go shopping for new school shoes? Remember trailing round the shops, getting your feet measured? Remember the bargaining, negotiating, wrangling that went on? There always seemed such a huge gulf between what the forces of darkness authority (school, parents) demanded and what you, the wearer, wanted (or else thought that you could get away with). And the result? Always the same...sensible school shoes (black) 1; Dotterel 0. And no chance of a re-match.

Until now. They say that parents often live their lives again through their children. Well folks,  take a look at this!




Oh yeah! No wonder the boy looks so pleased - a pair of red Kickers funky Lego lace-ups to review. And, as they're his, I'd better let him tell you all about them...

  3. Marvellous! What a gorgeous boy! And what a talker! I bet he'll have a great career in TV advertising. Fab shoes and they seem comfy as well. Thanks for posting this great video. Ciao. A.

  4. Don't see why not Cate. Shall I ask them to send you a pair?

    Yup, a childhood memory probably everyone shares Heather. Why do schools insist in black?

    You bet Antonella. Once he starts, there's no stopping him. And when his (limited) vocabulary fails him, he just makes the words up!

  8. 'Fraid not S&EM... the kids get everything round here!

    Just the thing for stomping round the streets of Paris eh, DD? You'll have that Charlotte Gainsbourg woman following you again...

    WELCOME BACK LBW(M)!!! I had a few problems with the site a while ago, lost loads of comments, all my links and it started throwing people off for no apparent reason. But it's sorted! (Must get you back on the blog-roll!)

  10. Oh I am very envious I love red shoes, but mores the point I love Kickers. The shop owner tried a pair on MiniMad in September, but at £48 I told her to put them back!!!

  11. Thanks TTWT! Charlie certainly enjoyed making it (as well as wearing the shoes of course)!

    They are pricey, TMH, and for kids who are likely to grow out of them in six months that's a serious drawback. Let's keep them for the grown-ups, shall we?

  12. They are some seriously wicked shoes, very jealous indeed.

  13. Being a huge Lego fan they definitely get my thums up!

  14. His glee when they go on his feet says it all. They comfy? Yeah! Dude.

  15. When I was about Charlie's age I had a pair of red shoes which I liked so much, I took them to bed with me, so I have been told.

  16. Now that is funky - are you training him talk like Huggy Bear as well? (Strewth though, Dot, he's really starting to look like his old dad already!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh those are fabulous. And Charlie is a complete star. As for the shoes, they are gorgeous. Every kid should have at least one pair. :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's certainly the word for it, Sub. Pity Charlie hasn't learned to say it. And I'm not about to teach him... far too risky!

    I quite fancy a pair myself, Jamie. Wonder if they do my size?

    The soles actually look like they're made of Lego bricks Steve. Cool!

    He can't contain his excitement can he Mummy Bear? They're a real hit.

    It wouldn't surprise me, CW. After all, he takes just about everything else to bed with him - cars, bin-men, even the odd teddy now and then.

    Everyone walks like Huggy Bear round here, Gadjo!

    He does seem to like the camera JoBo, shoes or no shoes. But he likes it with shoes even better...

  19. Thanks for popping over to my blog - it's still all new to me so I get very excited when I get a visitor (sad woman!) Have left a reply to your comment on my last post...so you'll have to go back again and read it!
    Great to read the male perspective on the parenting lark - I'll come back again, thanks.

  20. LOVE the shoes and what a fantastic shoe model! He would make that company a mint! They should be sending you loads of free shoes!
