We’re cheering this brave girl on.
When one 8-year-old girl was told she couldn’t have the dinosaur-themed Clarks shoes she wanted — because they only came in boys’ sizes — she wouldn’t stand for it.
Sophia Trow penned a letter to Clarks, asking that the popular style be made available to girls as well.
“My Mum took me to buy new school shoes and I saw that there were dinosaur shoes for boys. Why can’t girls have dinosaur shoes?” she wrote.
"I don't like how girls have flowery shoes," she continued. "I like dinosaurs and fossils, so I think that other girls might as well."
Sophia's mother, Jane Trow, shared the message on March 3, tweeting, "@clarksshoes My daughter has written you a letter about your sexist shoes. Not all girls want to be pretty princesses."
The mother and daughter were visiting a Clarks store in Middlesbrough, England, when the brand's Stomp Claw style, on one of the boys' shelves, caught her eye.
"We mentioned that it was a shame that there were no dinosaur shoes for girls, just for boys," Jane told TODAY.com. "We were told that boys' and girls' shoes fit differently, like how a ladies' size 7 is a different fit to a mens' size 7."
Jane explained to Sophia that it was possible to contact a company with feedback, so she decided to write the letter.
Clarks replied to Jane via Twitter, saying, "Sorry to hear our range didn’t suit Sophia’s tastes. We value her feedback to ensure we have styles that kids feel great wearing."
Jane said that the company also got in touch to offer her daughter a free pair of shoes.
A company spokesperson told TODAY.com, "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 have a long and established heritage of designing shoes which offer style, comfort, fit, durability and quality, and offer a wide range of children’s shoes to meet their varied tastes and needs."
