  • Kids' shoe costs cut with new trainers that grow along with them

    Mothers around the country will breathe a collective sigh of relief at news that shoes which grow with their children have just gone on sale.

    To combat the huge cost of keeping up with children’s rapid feet growth, Inchworm shoes have created a new shoe which can be made a full size larger, at the touch of a button.
