Have you been looking for a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for your child? Do you want to know whether these type of shoes can be worn as every day shoes and whether they will fit the shape of your child’s feet?
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for the last ten years. We specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we also provide regular shoe fittings as well. I have fitted thousands of shoes, and I am familiar with which brands and styles are better than others.
Lelli Kelly shoes is one of the most popular shoe brands for kids (when it comes to fashion shoes). Children love how these shoes are fun and unique, since they combine color, sequins, quality materials and fashion trending appliques.
At the children’s shoe store that I work for, we display our shoes in shelves and children are immediately drawn to Lelli Kelly shoes due to their colorful designs.
Several parents are hesistant to provide their kids with Lelli Kelly shoes, since most of their styles are very bright and the shoes are priced in the higher end.
Your kids are nagging you, as they’ve seen it, but are you still a bit hesitant to make the investment? This is understandable, since you probably have several questions that need to be answer about the quality, support, and durability of these shoes.
Before you decide to purchase a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for your child, we need the answers to the following questions:
- Will they provide enough support for your child to be able to play and run around?
- Are these shoes lightweight and flexible?
- Will these shoes FIT the shape of your child’s feet?
I want to clarify that Lelli Kelly shoes are not meant to be worn as every day shoes, since they lack the support, structure, flexibility, and breathability for your child to play in them for the whole day. With that said, Lelli Kelly shoes are GREAT as long as your child wears them for what they are: FASHION SHOES.
I describe Lelli Kelly shoes as “fashion shoes”, meaning that they are meant for your child to wear them for a couple of hours a day (not more than 5), and they are meant to be worn for places that don’t involve high impact activities.
With that said, there are certain Lelli Kelly shoes that provide better support than others, and I will describe them in this article.
If your child has been asking you for a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes, let me show you which are the best styles to choose from. Keep in mind that I only review shoes that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell whether the shoes provide good support, the quality of the materials they are made of, and how they FIT (long, short, narrow, wide).
Please keep in mind that Lelli Kelly shoes will fit a child with a narrow, medium, and wide width foot, but they WON’T fit a child with an extra wide foot.
Let’s take a look at the best Lelli Kelly shoes for kids.
Lelli Kelly Shoes – Why do they Cost More?
I don’t like to get involved too much in describing any shoe style from a fashion point of view, since my role and expertise lies in the quality and support that the shoes provide.
I have heard from several different parents that Lelli Kelly shoes are cute, comfortable, and they are the sweetest things they have seen for kids.
Please keep in mind that Lelli Kelly shoes tend to be more expensive than other type of shoes. In my opinion, they are worth the money since they are durable, supportive (not supportive enough for every day wear), and comfortable. But you might be asking yourself, why there is such a big price difference?
- First of all, Lelli Kelly shoes are hand made with attention to fine detail; the canvas range in summer features a double hand stitched sequin and beading design over the prints. Then they are individually tested using a 3kg weight to make sure they are securely attached to the shoes. It’s important for parents to know this since one of the first questions they have is whether the sequins of the shoes will fall apart.
- Secondly, the shoes come with soft leather insoles to keep your kids’ feet comfortable. These insoles will cushion and support your kids’ feet. However, I still believe that these shoes should not be worn as every day shoes, since the amount of support that they provide is not enough compared to a sneaker made by New Balance, Saucony, or Stride Rite (just to name a few examples).
- Finally, Lelli Kelly pays close attention in choosing the right factories to ensure you get the best quality shoes available that are durable.
Buying Lelli Kelly Shoes ONLINE – Get The Right Size!
I have been fitting children’s shoes for the last ten years, but I have been helping parents find their kids’ shoes ONLINE for the last three years.
If you decided that you want to provide your child with a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes, then I want to make sure that you know your exact child’s foot size.
If you don’t have a local children’s shoe store in your area that you TRUST and you MUST purchase your kids’ shoes ONLINE, there is an article I wrote where I describe the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:
Now that you know how to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size and all the features that Lelli Kelly shoes provide, let’s take a look at a selection of the best Lelli Kelly shoes for kids.
I still remember one comment a parent made when she called a shoe style made by Lelli Kelly a piece of art. This is what that parent had to say:
“I had to purchase these shoes!!! They are BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON!!! It is truly a lovely creative design and looks like they will hold value because of their uniqueness and high price tag. My is only 2 years old and I wanted her to wear special shoes for her Birthday and Christmas. So worth the purchase!”
Let’s take a look at a couple of pictures showing you how unique Lelli Kelly shoe styles are:
The Best Lelli Kelly Shoes – Find them Here!
The shoe styles I will describe below are the best styles among the Lelly Kelly shoe brand. Please keep in mind that these are not every day shoes, and you should provide your child with a pair of every day, supportive shoes so they can alternate between the two.
Here you can find a selection of the best Lelli Kelly shoes for kids:
These shoe styles fit short, which means that your child needs a whole size longer of the size that your child measure in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
The last two shoe styles “Colorissima” can be worn as every day shoes!
Please make sure that you provide your child with the correct shoe size, since shoes that are too long, too short, too narrow, or too wide will create all sort of foot problems to your child’s feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.
Every Day Shoes for your Child – Find That Pair to Alternate
Here you can find a selection of the best every day shoes for children that I have fitted before and these shoe styles are available in different widths such as medium, wide, and extra wide.
The shoes below will fit a child that has narrow, medium, or wide feet (choose the width accordingly).
This first selection of shoes fit “short”, which means that you need to go a whole size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
The shoes below will fit a child with medium, wide, or extra wide feet.
This selection of shoes fit “true to size”, which means that you need to go a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
Remember that when children are playing and running around they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level. A good supportive shoe will minimize the impact that their feet take every time they come in contact with the ground. This is the reason why it’s so important to provide your kids with shoes that are supportive and that fit the shape of their feet correctly.
