Our handmade sneakers in Storm have just the right mix of preppy and modern design, the perfect shoe for a baby or toddler who is learning to walk (or perhaps is new to walking!) where style, practicality and durability all remain a priority. A breathable cotton canvas upper and flexible, waterproof non slip sole mean your little one will be comfortable as well totally protected when they’re wearing our feather light sneakers.
A soft sole shoe design is recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists for children under 2 as they mimic bare feet and allow babies to improve their balance as well as strengthen all of those tiny muscles and toes. Just what your little person needs to kick start their journey!
A little note on sizing. . .
Please do not go by their age along when ordering as every little one grows at their own pace. Measure from the tip of the longest toe to the heel and add 1.3cm for wiggle room. It may be best to go up a size if your little one is midway between sizes. If you are unable to measure the foot as it may be a gift, we suggest going the next size up.
Other things to know:
Just like all of our shoes, our sneakers are designed by us and handmade locally in Brisbane, Australia.
Can be machine washed in a delicates bag and layed flat to dry.
Our sneakers have a pull tag on the heel and laces to allow for a snug fit and easy adjustment.
Available in sizes 2 to 7. Size 2 has a canvas sole and sizes 3 to 7 have a textured flexible rubber sole. They are perfect for every little person, from pre walker stage through to crawlers and even confident walkers (or runners!).
Our shoes all come packaged in a custom Gertrude and the King shoe box.
