Shoes, Shoes and More Shoes {Giveaway} from Hey Skippy!

And the Winner is...

Thank you again for everyone who entered the giveaway.  The judges had a great time reading through all your responses.

Is this you?

Congratulations.  Please shoot me an email at to claim your prize.


There is no secret that I love shoes.  I don't have a lot of shoes.  But my collection is growing.


The Five Little Reasons have inherited my love for shoes.  Lucy's collection is growing and even the boys have certain shoes that they must have!

The problem with my children's feet is that they are wide.  Another thing they inherited from their mother.   This means that most "store bought" shoes do not fit properly, resulting in an increased risk of foot deformities like blisters, bunions and even rolled feet.

I met Michelle, from Hey Skippy,  early last year and fell in love with her range of awesome children's shoes straight away.

Check out these Hubsche's.  Perfect for little ones, especially first walkers!

Camille in her Pink Hubsche's!

Oliver in his Red Hubsche shoes.
My favourite of all are the Puddle Jumpers.  These gorgeous polka dot leather shoes come in a range of colours and a very large size range starting from 9 month old babies up to ladies size 5!

Camille LOVES her Pink and white Polka Dot Puddle Jumpers!

Hey Skippy's range of shoes cater for all types of feet and specialise in wide feet and high insteps.  They stock functional light weight health shoes for your little ones which provide arch support, breathable insoles and flex grooves for ease of movement!

When it came to fitting the Big Reasons with school shoes this year, I didn't hesitate ringing Michelle.  Hayden, Lucy and Joshua have been wearing their school shoes for over 2 weeks now and they are holding up extremely well.  I have already noticed Lucy isn't rolling her foot and I am blown away at how they have held up with scuffing!

When choosing children's shoes I recommend that you:

  • Measure their feet every time you purchase new shoes.  The length of the shoes should exceed the length of your child's foot by at least 10mm.  12mm is ideal.
  • Consider the actual size of the shoe rather than just the number marked on the shoe.  Check the width of both the toe area and the heal.
  • Check every month or so to see if your child's shoes still fit, especially when they are in a growth spurt.  Remember that they will more often outgrow their shoes well before they outwear them.
Michelle takes great pride in measuring your child's foot.  If ordering online, she will ask for measurements, rather than your child's shoe size, to get the perfect fit.

Hey Skippy should be your first stop for fitting Stylish, Unique and Affordable Quality Kids Footwear!
