Possible recall incoming on these, just incase you have them.

Lisa Connor alleges daughter Esmé Connor suffered deep incisions to her right ankle after wearing the brand new pink children's size five shoes - which she had received as a birthday present - around her house and garden on Monday morning.

Next are currently investigating, just worth keeping an eye on until official outcome has been announced.

Once outcome has been announced, i'll update.

Just checking my kids shoes out, so may under the cupboard!

I remember having jelly shoes as a child and had the same thing, any kind of new plastic shoe will not be the softest until worn in. A small child running around with sweaty feet in a pair of these is a recipe for skin rubbing and breaking.

The more she would be running the more the blood will flow, the 'wound' doesn't look that serious. Yes it might look dramatic but anything with blood on it always does!

To be fair they do look too small, her heel is right at the back and the clasp looks like it's on near enough tightest setting.

My 3yr old daughter has these exact shoes and has just worn them on holiday in 30 C. No problem at all. They need socks and to be done up loosely.

If you read between the lines, the article and the comments this very much looks like a parenting issue!

Surely the child would have moaned about sore feet before it got bad enough to cause deep incisions?

I dunno they look the correct size, foot isn't as far forward as could be & look like size 5 so it'll be about right.

Omg my daughter has these!!! How will I find out about recall?!

Seen this about on social media and think its horrible but i can also tell that the pair of jelly shoes are at LEAST a size to small for her and surely the child must of said her mum that her feet were sore in the run up to the half an hour she said her daughter was out in them??

Definetly too small... definetly parent issue... buy the right size simple

I just want a proper shoe for a proper 21st century
in brogues

Small child running around,sweaty feet and plastic shoes with bare feet -not a good combination. The blood from the small skin tear is well dried, to me that means the wee girl had been running and playing quite the thing for a while without noticing it.

I thought the same tbh I wouldn't be happy though if it was my kid and I'd have told everyone but I think they need to wash foot 1st and see what the actual damage is, I'd have worn -in with socks as with normal shoes

My daughter has had these 2 yrs running now both two different pairs not once has she had any sort of injury of them theyve both fitted perfect not too small or tight personally if the shoe fits well... Goes without saying.. personally i wont be recalling my lil ones sandals

If recalled, i'll update the thread

My daughter has these shoes. She is two this month and has worn them all day today with no issues or problems or cuts.
Not to mention the buckle actually pings off off if they are too tight. So I don't think this is an issue with the shoe itself.

I would like to no why did they leave them on for so long as you can see the blood drying around the foot.

The blood is only where the shoes been which makes it look worse. Doesnt look like a deep incision either

They're a size 4, you can see that the foot is too wide for the shoe, it's digging in by the toes, the heals hanging over the foot and it's digging in.

She needs a 5 at least or 6

i wouldn't be surprised if the parent have a knock on the door from social services this week after the press this has got, as others have said on here and other media outlets which have ran the story there are to many concerns here wrong fitting shoes the starting point, not realising the little girl is in pain which she must have been and why is the blood dry. Sad story.

X)

My daughters had very similar ones from Next a couple of years ago. After a few minutes of wear, it was quite obvious to me that my younger daughter's feet were too chubby for them.... so I took them off her. Simple!

My daughter has every colour of these shoes from next, we've brought them for the last couple of years. We've had no problems at all & my daughter finds them very comfortable. The shoes are clearly to tight around her ankle & she needs a bigger size.

It takes a while to get through the automated menus at the Daily Mail's call centre to find out what kind of photos they require.

I don't think cheap rubbery sandals should be worn bare foot if at all. Tight fit + sweat = bad time.

I read this story earlier and agree the shies look too small and wonder what sort of parents stop to take pictures of the childs foot still in the shoe and bleeding before removing shoe and comforting child. Surely you'd snatch it straight off not grab your phone. All sounds a bit suspect to me sorry

What's to say the child hasn't got something caught in the shoe which then cut the foot? Where the blood is darker looks to be were the cut is to me..on the heel. Which would state either a sharp stone or glass flicked up when walking and the child stood on it hence the blood! But that's just my opinion

Omg don't think my last comment went on, so here it goes I can't believe how many judgmental ppl there is on here, I think the parents would know if a pair of shoes were too small and if u look closely at the pic u will see the shoes were not done up to tight and there was plenty of space in front of her toes as she had her heel raised, so maybe before judging people's parenting and not knowing the facts maybe not comment at all pretty simple how would u all feel if u was the parent having this **** said about u? Being in the firing line is not nice!!! So maybe try thinking of there feelings before u type!!

I love the way people are commenting on the shoes being the wrong size! First of all are you trained in measuring and fitting children's shoes? No I didn't think so... secondly it's impossible to tell from this picture as you can't see how far her toes are forward whilst the sandals are on, it could just be the angle she is standing on, due to one foot being raised, that has pushed her heel back! If her sandals were to large it would also cause problems due to rubbing! No its not a 'parenting issue' no sandals are made specifically to be worn with socks, the sandals are clearly faulty or badly manufactured if somebody had to wear socks to be able to use them without causing an injury. What I would consider 'bad parenting' would be setting an example to my children that its okay to be ignorant and judgemental!

LOL! Anyone need an online shoe specialist who can measure feet and shoes from one badly angled photographed?

Not a product recall issue, new shoes + no socks + hard strap near ankle + this is typical Mistake #2 here thestir.cafemom.com/tod…ler (where crocs are no no)

My 20 months old daughter has the exact same shoes and we haven't had any problems. She has worn them all of last week with socks and we haven't had any cuts or rubbing of any description. There is a label on the shoes which states that they are rubber shoes and they shouldn't be worn for prolonged periods of time. Maybe they were done up too tight or are the wrong size for little ones feet

How did you not realise this was happening to your daughters foot? Surely she would let you know, was you not paying attention?

I never liked plastic sandals even as a kid . They always seem to do that . Clarks all the way for every type of shoe from the minute they can walk till secondary school for me . I would never put a child in shoes that were not properly fitted and their feet measured for . Worth every penny

How can I read full story can't find it xx

How long was this poor bairn limping about with a sore foot before her parents took the shoes off?! And how come their first instinct was to take photos ...while she still has the other shoe on? "Where there's blame there's a claim" culture.

prob just after a bit of money

why would the social services get involved over a a cut from a shoe? are u for real? ppl like u really need to think before typing such crap!!! for a start the shoes were not the wrong fitting and if u closely at the pic u will see that the strap round her ankle is lose not tight, and she also has loads of room in front of her toes where she has her heel raised at the back, try knowing the facts before judging as we all know papers lie and make the story worse than it is to get ppl to read it...
