Really great wing-tip Oxfords for boys at Gilt...

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Does anyone have any experience with the kids' shoe brand Petit Marcheurs?  I first encountered it last night in a Gilt flash sale.  At first I thought that maybe it was a French brand, but then my grammar brain kicked in and informed me that "petit" has no "s" at the end to agree in number/gender with "marcheurs".  Would a French company do this?  NO.  So I looked it up.  Gilt made the typo!  The brand is actually called Petits Marcheurs.  French-inspired or French?  I am not sure, but this francophile is glad to see that someone paid attention in school (and it was not Gilt).  Anyway, I have been on the hunt for some nice wingtips for my boys and was so happy to see these new-to-me Brandon Oxfords.  They are marked down from $67 to $45 and are available in most sizes between 6 toddler and 3 big kid.  $45 is not cheap, but I have not seen anything lower for months.  These would be perfect for a little girl as well... mine will be sharing with her brothers.

See all of the classic offerings from Petits Marcheurs here at Gilt.  And if you need some dressy clothes to go with these shoes, have a look at this post.


  1. I love French fashion more than the average girl which is why I have to ask-- are these shoes manufactured in France or designed in France/made in Italy? If a sad sweatshop is being exploited in the name of luxury fashion (out of which my identical twin boys will grow in 2.5 minutes) then I'm afraid I can't subscribe. It's a tragic epidemic to which even Jacadi has fallen victim. Would love an answer if you know. XO, ljbw

  2. it's actually not a french brand at all, but one of Gilt's in house brands. I would love to know how the quality is though, because they do have some cute shoes!

  3. I just ordered them and the quality is terrible! I don't know how they'll hold up, but the leather is hard and not soft at all like I expected, and the sole seems cheap. Ugh! I was duped!
