Has your wriggly little babe not quite mastered their walk and still spend a bit of their time crawling? Or maybe they're more active these days and love to give their shoes a real work out?!

Either way, our new Sandals feature a toe cap made from the same lightweight, super flexible textured rubber used on the sole on Sizes 4 - 7.  This makes the front of the shoe super durable whilst still letting little feet feel the ground - perfect for when walking is still being perfected! Size 2 and 3 do not have the toe cap. Your little one needs their shoes to fit perfectly, an ill-fitting shoe can really mess up their walking. Make sure you measure their feet, don’t guess - they might surprise you!

    The nitty-gritty:

    • Handmade by Gertrude and the King in our Brisbane studio
    • Featuring a feather-light and super flexible textured rubber sole with a waxed cotton canvas upper - yes it is Australian Beeswax. 
    • A super easy (very parent-friendly!) pull-on design 
    • Easy clean -  just wipe them over with a damp cloth. Generally, dust and mud do not penetrate the fabric.  Sometimes a gentle brush may help remove excess mud - ooo who had a bit too much fun in puddles! Always allow them to dry naturally. 
    • Waxed canvas will develop over time a "weathered look" If you are not too keen on this "rustic look" use a low heat from a hair dryer to restore a more uniform surface. Do not over heat the wax! 

    Are you wondering "What’s all the fuss about soft sole shoes?" Recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists, soft sole shoes mimic bare feet and allow babies and toddlers 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 crawling or walking (and mastering their run!).
