Clarks has always been our number one place to get Adam’s feet measured and purchase shoes from. Adam started walking at 9 months old and in March 2013 we took Adam to Clarks for his first fitting.
Despite loving his shoes Adam prefers to wear wellies. He loves the freedom of being able to put them on and take them off independently. As he loves to be outside, wellies means that he can jump in puddles, walk down Nana’s muddy drive way and visit the beach at winter time whilst keeping his feet nice and dry.
Clarks have a wide range of wellington boots. In the boys range we had the choice of different colours, jet planes, dinosaurs and skeletons. With a dinosaur loving boy the choice for us was obvious – Clarks Dinosaur Wellies.
The Dinosaur wellies are different to anything else I have seen on the market. Yellow, green and blue dinosaurs cover the green background of the boot. The vulcanised construction and rubber sole protect your little ones feet from the elements. The boot can be tightened to fit securely against your childs leg with the green tie top.
Our Dinosaur wellies arrived just in time for us to take them on holiday to Bluestone in Wales. As Wales has a reputation for lots of rain I thought it would be the ideal place to test them out. Ironically the weather was wonderfully sunny during our 4 night stay. Adam still wore his wellies though as he loved the dinosaur pattern.
The first adventure the Dinosaur wellies went on was to Freshwater Beach. This beach is where Dobby the House Elf was buried in the last Harry Potter film. The wellies came in handy for Adam to be able to ride his motorbike across the large expanse of wet sand and for splashing in the sea.
Adam could be seen on his motorbike around the Bluestone resort wearing his Dinosaur wellies. They withstood the rough terrain and maintained a good grip.
We were immediately impressed with the high quality material. The boots fitted Adam wonderfully and he was able to put them on himself.
Since our return our Clarks Dinosaur Wellington Boots have been on many adventures. They came in handy in our trip to Bewilderwood, an outdoor treehouse adventure park. The wellies held their grip and enabled Adam to climb everything in sight!
The elasticated top of the wellies certainly stopped sand getting into them whilst Adam played in the sand pit.
During a wet half term holiday the wellies came in handy to keep Adam’s feet nice and dry. We visited the Bure Valley Railway.
Adam has certainly taken his wellie testing seriously and managed to find every single puddle on our walk – both big and small ones!
The Clarks Dinosaur Wellington Boots have exceeded our expectations and have given us everything we wanted in a wellie. Here is to many more dry feet adventures!
