PIC: This 8-Year Old Girl Wrote A Letter To Clarks After She Was Really Unimpressed With Her Shoe Choices

Sophie Trow may be a young girl – but she’s a young girl who knows what she wants.

The 8-year old was going shopping with her mum for a new pair of shoes when she went to pick up a pair of dinosaur runners.

There was only one problem – the Clarks Stomp Claw range weren’t suitable for ‘female bone structure’. So Sophie was asked to choose between pink shoes with flowers or shiny black mary-janes. But Sophie refused.

In fact Sophie was annoyed that she had to make a choice when there was very few options for a girl who didn’t fit into the typical stereotypes.

Being a young girl with a lot of spirit, Sophie decided not to take it lying down and instead penned a letter to Clarks outlining the unfairness of it all:

The letter reads:

‘I don’t like how girls just have to like pink and purple – I like blue and science and fossils.

‘Clarks should learn what girls really want and do something about it.’

Addressing Sophie’s letter, a spokesperson for Clarks said:

“Clarks are sorry to hear that Sophia was informed these shoes aren’t suitable for girls. The Stomposaurus range can safely be worn by all children.

“We are also developing a broader range of unisex styles which will be available from Autumn/Winter this year.”

We hope Sophie’s next shopping trip is more satisfactory, but we’ve no doubt she’ll be a step ahead when it comes to making her little voice heard.
