Little Angel takes her first steps at our Clarks Outlet!
Yorkshire mum, Jade Ellerby, was over joyed to see her nine-and-a-half-month old girl get her first pair of shoes at our Clarks Outlet, despite being born with talipes of her left foot.Little Angel-Leigh McArthur, from Rotherham, was diagnosed with Talipes at the routine twenty-week scan. When we heard about Angel and everything she and her family had been through, we arranged with our Clarks store to have Angel fitted for her first pair of shoes. Talipes is a condition that can affect one or both of a baby's feet from birth and is most cases, the front half of the foot turns inwards and downwards. It is also known as club foot. Since receiving Ponseti treatment, it has enabled Angel to walk - and we couldn't resist helping her to take her first steps in style! Here she is trying out her new shoes (with a little help)... Angel has overcome so much at such a young age and she's already started walking at just nine and a half months old - despite what she has been through - which is truly amazing! We were honoured to meet her and the family and we couldn't wait to give her this special gift of her first pair of shoes.
