LET’S TALK DOLL SHOES!

Hi guys! Let’s talk shoes!! We haven’t posted a shoe review in a while, so I figured that we were due. As everyone knows, we LOVE doll shoes. We love doll shoes so much that we tend to go a bit overboard when buying them. 

But you have to agree, doll shoes are so CUTE!!Of course, not all doll shoes meet the same quality controls, so how do you know which ones to purchase? Well, let’s take a look, shall we?

Today, we will be reviewing the adorable tennis shoes in the photo above. These teeny sneakers come in many colours. We chose light pink, purple and fuchsia.

 

One thing to note about these little runners is that they have craft foam soles. I’m not a huge fan of the craft foam, but they don’t come otherwise, so I can live with that.

My second issue with these little shoes is the front toe construction. Some, not all, of these shoes tend to have a sloppily crafted front toe.

As you can see in the photo above, there are plenty of problems in the toe department. The wrap around rubber strip has a visible gap, and it is showing above the front rubber toe strip.

Some of these shoes are better made than others, but if you can’t get over the flawed front toe, then these might not be your ideal purchase.

I’m not too concerned. I figure that with a pair of sharp, tiny scissors, I might be able to trim those unsightly edges a little. Let’s move on to the rest of the shoe.

In terms of the rest of the shoe’s construction, I am overall quite pleased. Perfect miniature stitching, tiny shoelace eyelets, not to mention sequin glitter! So cute!Now let’s talk stability. The fuchsia shoe above is right on. It has a nice plush lining and a sturdy insole, but this is not the case for all of these sneakers. Some are more like the light pink shoes below.

 Clearly the single layer construction isn’t ideal. The frayed edges aren’t a deal breaker as they can be looked at as part of their charm, but they do tend to get more squished, without regaining their original shape.

Then again, this isn’t much of a problem once the shoes are actually on the doll. Too cute, right?Agh those front toes! Breathe. Breathe. LOL! 😛 Just kidding. Total cuteness again. 🙂

Okay, here are a few more pics.Craft foam sole, not too bad. Not my favourite, but I’ll live.❤ Okay, maybe I’m more bothered by those front toes than I let on. :/This is a better angle. 🙂 Well, thank you for joining us today! I hope that you enjoyed our doll shoe review! If you would like to take a look at our other doll shoe reviews you can check them out HERE and HERE.

  1. I too prefer a more sturdy sole than the craft foam base, but I encounter that most with sandals. I think most of sneakers are a-okay. Yes, I take a good look and if something bothers me I don’t add to our shoe collection (which is probably as extensive as yours lol).

      1. The time I visited the Queen’s Treasures…I came home with at least 6 pairs of footwear including slip-ons, dress flats, slippers and boots! I love them! And some of the OG shoes (not so much the ones with the outfits anymore, but the stand alone ones) are great too. I have a few pairs of Sophia’s too. And lots of AG, of course. 🙂 It’s good I have 7 dolls or Melody would be getting close to Imelda Marcus. LOL
