    If your LO is wearing summer sandals do you put socks with them? Abigail has some that are the same style as the Clarks doodles. I put socks with them because I worry they might rub but I think her feet get hot.

    It depends - Bethan's only pair of shoes are sandals, and if it's hot, she doesn't wear socks, but if it's colder, she does. They're Clarks and fit her really well, and don't rub, so it's all totally dependent on the weather.

    I'm with AG and TBex.. if it's hot then no socks but if it's a little cooler, I'll put socks on.

    Evie's a little strange when it comes to shoes tho, she's obsessed with having them on all the time.. even when we've got her in a babygro ready for bed :haha:

    Personally, for me, I won't put socks on if LO is wearing sandals on a hot summer day. Sandals are made as such (open), to let your feet "breathe" during a hot weather. If it's a cool day, why let your kid wear a sandal in the first place? :shrug: Just an opinion ladies! :flower: x

    I usually put socks and sandals on Evie if it's warm and if it's warmer than warm, then she'll go without socks .. I dont put them on her if it's raining or cold, that's what her trainers/closed-in shoes are for :flower:
    She actually prefers to wear socks with her sandals, even if it's hot.. she'll pick at her toes and ask for her socks if I dont put them on!

    I learned my lesson well the other day, I put a pair of crocs on Dec without socks and sent him to playgroup (he was there for 2 1/2 hours) my poor little man came home with blisters all over his little feet :( I really dont care if it is a fashion crime or if it looks silly in future my little mans feet come first and he will have socks on, unless the sandals are really soft. x

    The one time I let H wear hers without socks they rubbed her little ankle :cry:

    I felt terrible when I took them off. It was just a bit pink, and she didn't seem to notice but that didn't help me feel any better!

    if the child is wearing cotton socks with sandles the feet will still be able to breathe.

    Clarks said to let them wear them with socks for the firstfew times to stretch the leather. Now we let him wear socks on long walks, but none if he's just out in the garden XX

    Sid has socks, he is 19months. Sophie doesnt, she is nearly 4. I usually get her to wear socks the first few times she wears the sandals though, to help break them in.

    Elliott has a pair of the Clarks Doodles sandals. I don't use socks with them but check his feet often for rubs etc. He has been fine and often takes them off anyway when he's in his pram!

    We have a pair of Clarks Canvas Doodles as well. I always put little short socks with them though.
