Kelly Barnes took to Facebook to warn other mums about Tescos Jelly shoes, the soft plastic shoes are often worn on sunny days down at the beach so are designed to be worn without socks.
Barnes said “this is the result of my poor 19 month old boys foot!! After wearing tesco jelly sandals twice… this is the metal that attached the buckle on the inside of the sandal! If anyone else has purchased these please be careful and keep an eye on your little ones feet! I thought I had finally found footwear he would keep on! Or not now! “
In the photos you can clearly see where the metal part which holds the strap in place is slightly raised and has caused it to rub on the toddlers ankle causing it to bled and cause pain.
We are unaware if Kelly Bares has contacted Tescos to inform them of the problem, this could be a one off as the shoe could be faulty however if they are all the same many other children may experience blistering and or bleeding, if this does occur we advise that you contact Tesco and let them know.
Do you own a pair of these Jelly shoes? Have you had an issue with them or has your child been absolutely fine, we would like to hear your experiences with Tesco Jelly shoes.
