- HANDMADE BIBS
- OUR STORY
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 light weight, super flexible textured rubber used on the sole. The front of the shoe is super durable whilst still letting little feet feel the ground - perfect for when walking is still being perfected.
Shoes that don’t fit your little person well can really mess up their walking… So please measure their feet before ordering, don't go by age alone as every little person grows at their own pace.
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.
The nitty gritty:
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!).
