- OUR STORY
The sweetest soft sole shoe for your baby or toddler… A gorgeous ruffle finishes off our pretty Mary Janes, complete with an adjustable faux buckle aimed to make Mum life just a little bit easier too.
With a cotton canvas upper and a feather light textured rubber sole, our machine washable (Yes, you read that right!) shoes are perfect for little ladies who are still establishing their walking. With no thick or uncomfortable soles to get in the way, your babe is free to play and adventure as she pleases.To wash, place our shoes in a delicates bag and lay flat to dry.
How to get the best fit…
It's easiest to get your little one to stand on a piece of paper, mark the tip of the longest toe and the heel. Measure between these two marks and add 1 to 1.5cm for wiggle room. Find that measurement in the ‘ideal foot length’ column above, go up a size if your little one is midway between sizes.

Why soft sole shoes? Recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists, soft sole shoes mimic bare feet and allow babies to improve their balance as well as strengthen all of those tiny muscles and toes. A firmer sole with minimal flexibility can interfere with all the hard work little feet need to do to establish their walking.
