A SMART mom has revealed how she scrapped a pair of trainers from Disney’s ASDA to better match her son’s style.
She asked people to “listen to her” about the fashion overhaul because she “didn’t like letting her kids wear character clothes”.
But trolls have called her a “boring beige” mom for rubbing Mickey Mouse’s face with £14 kicks.

She used acetone and a cloth to rub on the character’s face to make the shoes look more neutral.
Revealing the process on TikTok, she explained: “Mickey Mouse is no more.
“I just got a little bit of acetone on a cloth and I literally started scrubbing.
“You can see, Mickey Mouse going, fading, and you just scrub and pour some water on it.”
The mother predicts social media trolls will influence her choice.
She replied retroactively: “Before someone asked me, ‘why don’t you buy casual shoes?’
“I was at ASDA and I liked them.”
After the video was posted, one troll asked: “Why don’t people let their kids be childish instead of boring beige?”
Another said: ‘Kids only get to be kids once and I think they’ll prefer Mickey Mouse to them being normal’.
However, this crafty mom wants to put it bluntly that the shoes would have been better for her son without the lettering on the side.
She replied: “My child is autistic and doesn’t even know who Mickey Mouse is.
“But thanks for your comments.”
Other moms support her style choices, with many complaining that a lot of baby clothes are “ruined” by character branding.
One person wrote: “It’s really impossible right now to get nice boys clothes without some character ruining it all!
“So many miracles.”
One second repeats: “I feel mom.
“The characters feel meaningless when your ASD kid doesn’t know who they are.
“If you like the design without, you will.”
