Advent Calendar Door 11 – Win a Pair of Inch Blue Shoes of your choice.

Winner – Samantha Ripley – Congratulations!

I fell in love with Inch Blue Shoes quite a while ago now and still to this day am a firm believer in the brand.

A pair of Inch Blue Shoes make the perfect newborn present. Whether you know the sex of the baby is irrelevant as the range includes so many that can be bought for a boy or a girl.


Soft breathable leather ensures that baby’s feet grow naturally whilst protecting them. The soft non-slip suede bottoms are perfect for hardwood and tiled floors and elasticated ankles keeps them on their feet.

There’s a pair for everybody no matter what you style is including Mary Jane (my personal favourite), Sports, Animals, flowers and vehicles.

How to enter

For your chance to Win a Pair of Inch Blue Shoes in the size and style of your choice fill in the form below.



Just for you Boys!

I fear that having had a little girl recently it has influenced my buying for the site, and it definitely has a predominantly girly thing going on at the moment.

To rectify the situation and by way of apology, we’ve added a new selection of Inch Blue Shoes just for you Boys.

Come on England!

Come on England!

I don’t know about your house, but mines gone football crazy!

Our lives pretty much revolve around the game on a normal day, but the World Cup seems to have upped the obsession to extreme levels. We have our flag flying and I’ve agreed that I will face paint my son’s face and buy him a red and white curly wig and one of those horn things. I may live to regret the horn but its not for long, and it may mysteriously disappear if things get too much.

If you want to join in with the World Cup madness, why not deck out your budding footballer in a pair of World Cup Shoes by Inch Blue.

For a chance to win a pair of these, answer the following question:

Who was Captain for the first World Cup game of 2010?

Email your answer  along with your details to

The competition will end at 12 noon on Wednesday 16th June. The winner will be picked at random and notified.

If you can’t wait to see if you’re a winner, click here.

Fingers crossed for England!!
