UK: Chiropodist Designed Shoes Put Kids' Feet First
Now Christina's theories on the correct designs for toddler footwear have been turned into commercial reality with the launch of a new British children's wear brand - Inch Blue.
Bootees from this collection are oval toed and provide "ample growing space." They have ultra soft, breathable leather uppers and soles made of non-slip suede. Meanwhile, an elasticated ankle area ensures the shoes stay put on even the liveliest youngster.
Shoe styles turn their wearers' feet into a pair of fire breathing green dragons or, in deference to the coming World Cup, sport Union Jack medallions and accurately mimic the look of top selling trainers.
