WHAT HAVE WE HERE?
Now these are something. If you are looking for the perfect pair of utterly cute sneakers for your little darlings, well, we think that we have found them right here.
Positively overflowing at the brim with cute, are these toddlers and little kids shoes by BEGT.
According to all the listing information that we can find, these are available in three colors – all metallic. These are the completely adorable gold, shimmering silver and a patented looking pink.
The gold pair look like something that we could picture Fred Astaire wearing, well, if he was a toddler and wore sneakers at any rate.
These are so shiny, it is hard to believe that they are only made from a soft fabric material. They look as if they must be leather, at least, or possibly even carved from metal.
With laces that don’t really need to be laced up unless you really want to use them, these come with a single strip of Velcro to fasten along the top, that even the smallest child should soon learn how to master.
The interior of the shoe – the sole – is a soft golden wash, to complement with the extreme sparkle of the upper.
The metallic gold color is solid throughout, but has a mixture of textured appearances along the upper. Along the toe bumper and the heel, it is a sheer, shiny gold reflective material. The rest has a sort of diamante effect.
Altogether, these sneakers will give your toddler somehow the aura of Liberace, in statuesque form.
And the other colors, well they follow suit.
The silver is every bit as glam and the pink sneakers, possibly the most chic things ever to walk this earth. Well, that’s available for the under 5s, anyway!
According to the picture, there are actually two other colors in this range – black and something that looks like a deep purple or a blue.
However, we can’t find these shades on sale at the time of writing, which is a pity as we like the look of them and they may represent a slightly less drastic choice in the sparkly shoes stakes.
THE LED LIGHTING
Similar to many of the other LED light up shoes that we have reviewed recently on Best Walking Shoes Review, these offer a choice of seven colored lights, with four “flashing” options.
They go like this – dark blue, green, red, sky blue, yellow, purple, white. Then select option eight of the switch to get twinkle mode and then all the various automatic flashing options.
The switch to turn the shoe lights on is located discreetly at the tongue.
However, we believe that these actually do come equipped with a remote control, for added convenience.
As well as saving you the inconvenience of leaning over to try and fiddle with the switch when your little prince or princess has them on their feet and refuses to relinquish them, the remote control is guaranteed to be a hit with the kids as well.
When it comes to charging, a double headed USB cable is provided, so you can plug this into a charger, both feet at a time.
The manufacturers reckon that for a two to three hour charging time, your budding Elton John should get up to six hours of quality flashing.
So just who on earth are manufacturers BEGT? Well you might ask, because unfortunately at this time of writing, we can’t find an awful lot out about them.
They do not appear to have an easily discovered website or even Facebook page. But this does not diminish their reputation or their quality.
In fact, we have seldom seen so many good reviews for a footwear product. Everyone seems to have given these flashing kids casual sneakers either a four or five star rating. This is pretty impressive, we think.
Unlike some of other LED kids shoes in this style that we have reviewed, these don’t go right up to the larger sizes and stop at a size seven, for little kids.
This is a pity and a real shame for some of the older little divas wanting to experience a truly fabulous sparkling experience.
In terms of fit, nearly everyone believes that these are spot on. 94% of customers say that they got the right size, first time – a pretty impressive statistic all round!
And if you are one of the unlucky ones to order the wrong size, well, BEGT offer some free returns, depending on the size and color.
BEGT range from a toddler size ten, right through to a little kids seven.
If you’re not sure of their size, then grab a tape measure and draw around their feet. Then measure from tip to toe.
To avoid getting the sizing wrong though, we suggest you follow this handy guide;
A US Size 10 M toddlers, correlates to 6.8 inches, size 11 M is 7.0 inches, 11.5 M is 7.3 inches, 12 M is 7.6 inches and a US size 13 M measures 7.8 inches.
Then it is into a size 1 M little kids, which is 8.0 inches, the 1.5 M measures 8.3 inches, 2.5 M is 8.5 inches, 3 M is 8.8 inches, a 4 is 9.0 inches, size 5 M is 9.2 inches, size 6 M measures 9.5 inches and finally a 7 M is 9.8 inches.
Although the sole on these sneakers is fully water resistant, as you can imagine, the rest of the shoe is not.
The manufacturers promise that these LED shoes can withstand a bit of light rain, but really, not much more than that.
SHOULD I BUY THESE SHOES?
We think the decision to buy these LED sneakers for your kid – either boy or girl – is a total no brainer.
These are so cute, the pricing seems realistic for the quality and customers are virtually queuing up to leave great reviews.
So all in all, should you buy these shoes – YES!
