Pisamonas Shoes Review

Spring is in the air, and if the glorious sunny weekend is anything to go by, summer is set to be a scorcher. Well, fingers crossed it will be. The onset of spring means I need to get my son's wardrobe sorted in anticipation of balmy summer afternoons spent in the garden, in the park or on the beach.

I bought him shorts, hats and t-shirts and was on the lookout for some nice footwear, when the lovely people at Pisamonas got in touch with an offer to review their products. I had never purchased shoes for J from an online store before, so was interested in trying out the Pisamonas service.

Pisamonas are an online shoe store offering great quality products for little people and grown-ups. All their shoes are made in the European Union and are reasonably priced. The best part for me is that they offer a free delivery service and free returns and size exchanges. This is so important when buying shoes, as fits tend to differ depending on the design and make of a particular pair.

J took his time deciding which shoes he wanted. We finally settled on a pair of Nubuck Avarca Menorcan riptape sandals in brown and a pair of Jelly Sandals. J was thrilled to bits when his new sandals arrived promptly in the post just a couple of days after I had placed the order, and was very excited to try them on.

The Avarca Menorcan sandals are made of nubuck leather which makes them breathable. This is so important especially in the summer months, when active little feet tend to sweat. I liked that they looked stylish and felt sturdy and very well made. The riptape means extra support for J's little feet as they adjust from closed shoes to open summer sandals. I must say they are an absolute bargain at £19.50 a pair.

The jelly sandals retail at £16.50 and are available in a range of pleasant colours. J opted for a sky blue pair. I like the detail on the straps and the slightly cobbled feel to the sole to ensure better grip. They look so pretty that I wish my grown-up feet could get away with wearing something so cute and comfortable.

Both the designs we chose have velcro straps for ease of fastening. J can now wear his own school shoes, so was delighted he could do the same for his new Pisamonas sandals as well.

I think both pairs of sandals are very well made and a great value for the quality that is on offer. J said he was happy with his new shoes, that they felt comfortable and he liked wearing them. Well, he didn't just wear them, he walked in them, ran in them and stood on his tip-toes in them. All indoors, of course, as the weather is still not great for little feet to be in sandals just yet.

But we are both excited with his new summer footwear and cannot wait for warmer weather to try them outdoors.

I went with J's current UK shoe size for both pairs and they are a good fit. Pisamonas have a size guide on their website if you would like to measure feet at home before deciding what size to buy.
