Blog/Footwear News/What New Shoes will the Royal Baby Wear?
Baby fever has swept over the UK as once again the glorious Duchess of Cambridge is with child. Speculation is increasingly mounting as to when the birth will be - but it appears we could be welcoming a new Prince or Princess any day now. Some well-wishers have already set up camp outside the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where Kate gave birth to Prince George Alexander in 2013.
Prince George has frequented the British press on an almost daily basis since his birth in 2013, and not just because of who his parents are or even because he’s absolutely adorable; but because he is without a doubt a contender for Britain’s most fashionable infant! Regularly pictured in adorable outfit ensembles, it’s safe to say when it comes to baby fashion, His Royal Highness is dominating the style stakes. He was even pictured wearing some shoes hand-crafted in the Midlands!
All of the Royal Baby excitement got the CLOGGS HQ talking - which shoes would be fit for a Royal Baby? We’ve put together a list of which kids shoes are fit for royalty, and which new shoes we might see the Prince or Princess wearing as they grow up!
If we welcome a little Princess, we think these new shoes would be just perfect as she grows up:
1. Geox - Shadow Junior - Black, £38.99
These gorgeous Geox shoes are perfect for tiny Princess feet. Black, glossy and smart, they also feature a strap to ensure comfort and ease of wear. These would be gorgeous with a dress and tights for a formal occasion, and they also have the traditional Geox technology with a special micro-porous membrane which will absorb and expel sweat without letting water in, ensuring our mini Royal would have comfortable feet no matter what conditions!
2. Mel - Cool Baby - Juniors - Blush Heart, £23.99
Have you seen anything more adorable than these Mel shoes? We adore the blush pink colour, and think these strapped sandals would be simply glorious for a Royal Princess! The heart motif makes them all the more sweet, and they’re just perfect to jazz up a casual outfit.
3. Dr Martens - Tully Infant - Black Patent, £36.99
Dr Martens are the epitome of cool - and we think being a Royal Baby is pretty cool too, so it’s only fitting if it were a little Princess that she should have some cool shoes! These Tully Docs have a thick and practical rubber sole, a gorgeous shiny patent finish and a cute strap. The perfect shoes for running around whilst looking stylish!
4. Ugg Australia - Libbie Infant - Raspberry, £30.00
Regal feet need regal footwear, and you couldn’t possibly get more exclusive than these gorgeous mini Raspberry Ugg boots. Designed to keep your feet cosy and toasty, but with a simply stunning suede finish we think these Uggs are the definition of perfection, fit for a tiny Princess indeed.
5. Kickers - Adlar Bar - Infants - Dark Blue, £39.99
These Kickers shoes are just adorable for little girls. In a pretty navy blue colour and adorned with cute flowers, we think they belong on the feet of a little Princess - don’t you? The thick rubber soles are perfect for playing and these would be truly gorgeous teamed with your best dress!
If we welcome a little Prince, these new shoes should provide him with happy feet as he’s growing up:
1. Dr Martens - Colby Infants - Black, £39.99
These Infants Dr Martens are dapper and swish - perfect for a Little Prince’s formal occasion. Dr Martens are a huge and cool brand with plenty of style acumen, which makes them the perfect footwear choice for royals.
2. Hush Puppies - Lionfish - Infants - Navy, £31.99
Little Princes need comfortable little shoes to run and play in, and when it comes to comfort you simply can’t beat a classic pair of Hush Puppies. These trainer-style shoes have two straps and a thick sole.
3. Converse - First Star 2V - Crib - Periwinkle, £18.00
Arguably the most fashionable of our little Prince shoe selection, these gorgeous Converse crib shoes are more than suitable for Royal feet. With an adorable colour theme these casual kicks will keep the Prince streetwise and smart - as well as totally adorable too!
4. Ralph Lauren - Wrentham Low - Infants - White EZ, £53.99
Cool, fashionable and stylish - three words to easily sum up these Ralph Lauren shoes. They’d provide some incredibly comfortable but extremely fashionable footwear for a Prince to wear on more casual days, but with bags of style too!
5. Kickers - Kick Hi Baby - Navy, £31.99
Practical, comfortable and oh so cute, these Kickers would be perfect for a newborn Royal Prince! The navy colour is versatile and can match anything, plus there’s a rubber sole to protect little feet. We love these stylish Kick Hi’s and think they’re just ideal for a Prince.
