Why, oh why hasn’t anyone thought of this until now? I’m not normally in favour of gender-specific items, preferring all things equal/unisex, but tights are one piece of clothing that it’s genuinely difficult to get hold of non-pink/floral/kittens styling. Yet they are sooooo much more convenient than socks, so I’m sure many a mini man sports girlie hosiery under their baby trousers.
Enter Little Titans, purveyors of cooler-than-cool tights for boys. We’re talking serious style here – think stripes with contrasting kneepads – combined with the practicality of cotton, non-slip soles and snug terry feet, all packaged up in a funky box making them a brilliant pressie idea. Now, and I’ve saved the best until last, what aspiring superhero wouldn’t want to be seen out and about in red boots with a lightning flash? None that I know of. All styles available in three sizes (0-1, 1-2 and 2-3) at Â£14.99 a pair from the site, or Little StomperÂ who are doing free shipping on preorders.
