As I was writing our new Lelli Kelly shoes guide yesterday, I decided to do a little research. Where did these crazy colorful and bedazzled shoes come from and why are the so freakin’ popular? Well, the shoes are Italian and I’m guessing little girls love Lelli Kelly shoes not only because they’re sparkly, but also because every pair comes with a free lip gloss.
As I was checking out the Lelli Kelly shoes site, though, I was shocked to find they make…normal shoes. Yes, plain black leather and patent leather mary janes and sneakers. Huh? Why have we been bombarded with the psychedelic Lelli Kellys when there are actually simple, very cute Lelli Kelly shoes out there.
Lelli Kelly Dolly Straps (approx $80)
Lelli Kelly Dolly Bow (approx. $72)
After a little more digging, it seems like the plain Lelli Kelly shoes are only available at one site: thecarouselhalifax.com. The site is based in the U.K., but they offer the full range of Lelli Kelly school shoes (aka the normal ones). We emailed the owner and get this: they ship to the U.S. They ship anywhere in the world, in fact.
So, here’s your chance to get your little girl some decent-looking Lelli Kelly shoes she can actually wear to school with her school uniform. Or a pair of Lelli Kellys that won’t make your head spin just by looking at them.
