Isn’t it amazing how a few short weeks can make a huge difference in a child’s development? I feel like we left Australia with a baby, only to return with a cheeky toddler 5 weeks later. Our snuggly baby who loved being carried has been swapped for an adventurous little girl who runs everywhere. While she loves walking around barefoot it is simply not always clean or safe so we’ve fitted her small chubby feet with some sweet new shoes from Tiptoe & Co:
Being a mum herself Tiptoe & Co owner Chelsea knows all about shoe shopping for little ones. Good quality, leather, style, comfort and durability, the Tiptoe & Co footwear range ticks all the important boxes. Another excellent reason to shop Tiptoe & Co is the pleasant price tag as all shoes are priced at less than the recommended retail price, that’s more money to go back in your savings!
For our little miss 1 I chose these sweet Spring Baby Shoes ($28.95, size 6m – 24m), I think they are just gorgeous. Not only does the neutral navy colour go with almost anything, it is also great for hiding the inevitable scuffs and scrapes that our little explorer will make on them. Made with soft cow leather upper and pig leather lining they are breathable and comfortable for her growing feet.
The velcro strap makes them very easy to put on and off and, to my surprise, miss Sybbie happily leaves them on most of the time so that’s a big win. Another great feature of Freycoo infant shoes is the sole, it’s flexible enough for new and early walkers but also strong enough to be worn outside unlike many other baby shoes. The sole is fitted with two rubber anti-slip patches to provide extra grip for those wobbly legs.
To help you pick the right size Tiptoe & Co provides exact measurement of each shoe on the product pages and if you would love some extra advice about shoes and sizing they are just an email away.
Although the weather outside is far from warm and sunny we are hopeful Spring will soon arrive and miss 4 can put on these adorable Eva Toddler Sandals ($32.95) from well known label Little Blue Lamb. She can’t wait to expose her little toes to some sun and has impatiently been wearing them inside. It is not always easy to find sandals that fit well, often they are too wide, too narrow or too floppy but these fit beautifully, are supportive enough for active kids and the enclosed back keeps her heel nicely in place.
Tiptoe & Co currently stocks popular brands Freycoo, Caroch and Little Blue Lamb with shoes for boys and girls, from little babies all the way up to decent size 30. With a bit of luck you can shop for all your little ones in one go!
