These handmade soft soled loafers are made from a soft navy cotton canvas fabric, then a variegated pale blue stitching runs diagonally across front of shoe. They have a coordinating batik cotton fabric lining and a cushioned inner sole of cotton batting. Seams are hidden for added comfort. A pull tag on heel helps to just slip them on.
Elastic around the heel, along with concealed elastic over front of foot ensures these slip ons remain on your little ones feet. They can be worn with or without socks or stockings and are suitable for indoor or light outdoor use. Each shoe is hand cut and hand sewn in our Gertrude and the King studio in Brisbane, Australia.
Recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists, soft soled shoes mimic bare feet and allow babies to improve their balance as well as strengthen all those tiny muscles and toes.
The same fabric will be included for the outer sole of sizes 1 and 2. If your little one is close to walking we recommend a non slip outer sole to prevent slipping. The sole for 3 and 4 will be a black non slip fabric and a black, pliable, non slip, waterproof, rubberized fabric sole for size 5+.
NB: Please measure little ones feet. Measure from the tip of the longest toe to the heel and add 1.3cm (1/2") for wiggle room . It may be best to go up a size if your little one is midway between sizes. (Do not go by their age as every little one grows at their own pace). If you are unable to measure the foot as it may be a gift, the age is a guide only, we suggest going the next size up.
