A two-year-old girl was allegedly left with “horrific” cuts and a bloodied foot after wearing a pair of Next jelly sandals for just half-an-hour.Little Esmé Connor’s mum says her daughter suffered deep incisions to her right ankle after wearing the brand new pink children’s size five shoes around her house on Monday morning.
Shocked mum Lisa shared shocking photos of Esmé’s injuries on social media to warn other parents about the £8 sandals, which her daughter received as a birthday present.
The furious parent has now called on Next to recall the shoes, to prevent other kids suffering similar injuries and said: “It’s not like she was running around in them for hours. She was just plodding around the house and then came running in in tears.
“There was blood all round her ankle and on the soles of her foot. Of course there will be new shoes that rub, but this is ridiculous. “There was so much blood and she wouldn’t stop crying. Her dad had to spend an hour calming her down. It spoiled her birthday weekend really”
