Footwear: Mama Treads and Cosy Toddler Toes

We're still hoping to go skiing before the season is out so when Footway got in touch and asked if I'd like to collaborate with them I knew exactly what I'd be choosing to photograph my toddler wearing. I've had a crush on the brand Sorel since I got my first pair a few years ago and was thrilled for an excuse to buy my little friend a pair so that we can twin. When Tom saw them lined up in the hallway he felt just a little bit left out.

For my own footwear, I went straight to the Vans page. I hovered over the pink leather pair but in the end practicality won out and I clicked 'buy' on my third pair of exactly the same trainers, black Old Skool Vans. What can I say? Choosing the right mama tyres is important, I'm on my feet all day long, pushing buggies, slipping them on and off for playgroup, I need a workhorse, and they have never let me down. They're hardwearing, they're comfy, smart...ish and go with everything. I'm just a little bit precious about keeping shoes nice so it took a deep breath to venture out onto the green with a box-fresh pair of Vans on. Note my careful footwork, trying not to let her tread on them!

I chose black Sorels for her, the closest match to the adult version. They had more colourful options which I debated over but the potential for matching seemed more alluring. I can confirm it's very cute. Look out on my Instagram page for us hitting the snow in our matching boots! They are really warm and toasty if a little heavy so it's taken her a little while to get to grips with, I'm glad we have a while before we jet of for some more practice runs!
Footway sell shoes for all the family so you only pay one delivery charge to kit out your whole team, you can easily filter by size and brand which means you're not disappointed when your favourite is not available in your size. They even have little icons to filter by style of shoe. Delivery was within a couple of working days and came by courier with an option to drop off at a local convenience store or locker.
The shoes in this posted were gifted by Footway, as always, views are my own. G wears Sorels 1964 in black and a size 4 1/2, mine are Vans Old Skool in a size 5. Both are from Footway.
