Shoe manufacturer Clark have removed their 'Dolly Babe' kids shoe from its website - following outrage from some of their customers. With pink insoles and dainty hearts - the shoes are aimed at little girls, but parents were furious at the alternative boy choice - which is called 'Leader'. Sturdy, black and decorated with footballs. They've been accused of sexism - but what do you think? Clarks have said "...we are working hard to ensure our ranges reflect our gender-neutral ethos...". Is it an overreaction? Can children's shoes really be gender neutral? Stephen got the views of Emma Woolf and Martin Daubney and we took your calls.
