When my daughter started walking for the first time, I started doing some serious baby shoe shopping. First, I tried some regular tennis-shoe style shoes from Target. They didn’t help – they hindered her and made her resort to crawling. Then I discovered ShooShoos through a friend whose little girl was just walking as well. She had a pair of soft shoes and they seemed so comfortable and easy to walk in, just the thing Emma would like – she was used to wobbling around our apartment barefoot and wasn’t ready for thicker-soled shoes.
And so I was introduced to ShooShoos. I had a chance to review a pair myself and am now totally sold on these soft-soled leather baby shoes being wonderfully comfortable for baby’s feet!
The features that make ShooShoos a good choice:
♥ Many adorable styles to choose from, for boy or girl
♥ Each soft-soled leather toddler shoe is held on baby’s foot with gentle elastic – they don’t fall off which is awesome!
♥ All dyes are non-toxic.
♥ Soft-soled shoes have non-slippery suede soles.
There are two different types of shoes available: Smiley Light Flexi Rubber Soles and Soft-Soled Leather.
Thanks to ShooShoos, I was able to review a pair of White Princess Soft-Soled Leather baby shoes! Aren’t these adorable? I love that they can be used as dress-up shoes or play shoes, and Emma can walk comfortably anywhere without getting poked by grass or dirt (the leather soles are just thick enough to protect tiny feet). Since we received them, she’s seemed to have a lot more confidence when it comes to walking and rarely crawls anymore.
One of my favorite features of ShooShoos is the elastic around the top – I don’t have to worry about losing these! No more will mommies get home from shopping and realize their child lost a shoe… okay well I can’t guarantee that will never happen (kids are talented when it comes to losing stuff, and for all I know someone might see the shoe cuteness and steal them, lol) but the likelihood lessens significantly.
Care and cleaning is easy – “Wash carefully in cold water with a mild detergent. Shape correctly and allow to dry out of direct sunlight. Shoes may be a little stiff initially, however the leather will soften with wearing.”
We love these and would purchase them again in a heartbeat for growing little feet!
