Shoes shoes are a real investment. Mini has just had to have new ones as his feet had grown and they cost £42, thankfully we had a £40 voucher from Clarks to put towards them. For Mini we really have to look to a shop like Clarks as he has wide feet and a high instep. His current shoes are a 2.5 H width fitting. When you pay that short of money for shoes it is essential that you look after them and I have to say I learned a lot about caring for leather shoes from my Dad and Granddad.
