These handmade soft soled shoes are made from a bright pink cotton canvas fabric, with a coordinating handstitched bow and a cushioned inner sole of cotton batting. The bow is securely attached with both glue and stitching. All seams are hidden for added comfort and a soft elastic back ensures they will remain on your little ones feet.
The elasticised ankle strap secured on the side of the foot with a button, enables you to ensure a snug fit. It's stitched from the sole on side to the sole on the other side, this allows the shoe to stay on and bub cannot pull on anything to open whilst also being easy for an adult to put on. These shoes are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Each shoe is hand cut and hand sewn in our Gertrude an 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.
SIZING If your little one is close to walking we recommend a non slip outer sole to prevent slipping. This will be included in sizes 3 +. The sole for 3 is a grip stop and 4+ will be a non slip fabric which is both waterproof and textured in black.
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.

To launder: just a gentle hand or machine wash (preferably in a lingerie bag as you know what happens to those pesky socks!?) in warm water, lay flat to air dry.
