One of the many things I love about having a new baby in our family is celebrating all the ‘firsts’. A first smile, a first tooth, a first step… no matter how many children you have these milestones will always be special. With December just around the corner I am very much looking forward to celebrating Harriet’s first Christmas and of course I’ve picked her first pair of Cheeky Little Soles party shoes already:

CLS

Like the rest of the Cheeky Little Soles range the gorgeous Baby Ballet Slippers ($35.95, available in sizes Small to Extra Large) are designed right in Australia and made with the softest high-quality leather.

Ballet Slipper SilverWhether it’s Christmas, a Christening or naming day, a wedding or a birthday, these pretty infant ballet flats are the finishing touch to your baby girl’s special outfit and with nine beautiful colours to choose from there is a perfect match for every look. Festive shades like Scarlet Red and Silver Sparkle are always popular this time of year so be quick and grab a pair if you don’t want to miss out!

To make sure those little tootsies stay comfortable all day long the baby ballet slippers are flexible and breathable and have a soft sole that allows for your baby’s feet to move naturally. Cheeky Little Soles owner and mum Lisa knows how annoying it is when baby shoes keep slipping off those tiny baby feet so she has specifically designed the baby ballet slippers to be easy to put on AND stay on, leaving you to enjoy the party instead of looking for lost shoes.

If you’re not 100% sure of your baby’s size or if you are buying the shoes as a gift just refer to the handy Cheeky Little Soles size chart to determine the correct size, easy as pie.

Wherever you look new season’s fashion is hitting the stores, babies, kids and adults are spoilt for choice when it comes to their Winter wardrobe. But of course a hip new outfit is nothing without a stylish pair of shoes to finish the look, Cheeky Little Soles has got little minifashionistas ones covered with a brand new collection of soft soled baby shoes:

Beautiful BloomsLet’s start with the girls, how sweet is the new Beautiful Blooms ($39.95, size Small-Large) design? Featuring a classic white base and eye catching pink and red patent leather bloom detail these gorgeous shoes are sure to be a hot favourite. With such popular girl colours they are a breeze to mix and match and go with any outfit. Don’t worry about the white leather getting dirty, these little shoes can be hand washed for easy cleaning.

AllAboutEveMy favourite style for the little ladies is All About Eve ($39.95, size Small-Large). This design really is pretty as a picture with a soft pink coloured base and beautiful multi coloured leaf detail across the top. The elasticised back makes them easy to slip on and it helps the shoes stay on too. Thanks to the soft leather and absence of open seams there will be no irritation or painful marks on your baby’s precious tiny feet.

Geometric FusionOf course we can’t forget about the boys, these colourful Geometric Fusion ($39.95, size Small-Large) shoes are little works of modern art with their hexagon shaped detail.

Sunday Coffee with Cheeky Little Soles

 Baby, Style  Comments Off on Sunday Coffee with Cheeky Little Soles
Jul 152012
 

Now that you’ve read how much we love Cheeky Little Soles I thought it would be nice to get to know the face behind this fantastic Australian label. Today we are joined by gorgeous Cheeky Little Soles owner (and mum) Lisa for Sunday Coffee.

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
My ideal Sunday would be cuddles in bed with my family and then enjoying a coffee and breakfast at a café I haven’t been to before. There are so many good cafes in Melbourne to discover. Last weekend we went to The Auction Rooms in North Melbourne and the breakfast (and coffee!) was absolutely delicious.

Why did you start Cheeky Little Soles?
My daughter Lily was the reason and inspiration behind starting Cheeky Little Soles. In 2005 when Lily was 6 months old she kept slipping on our floorboards during her early attempts at learning to stand (she did everything early!). I searched for top quality, stylish and reasonably priced soft soled leather baby shoes, and nothing on the market fulfilled my requirements. Unable to just sit back, I set about designing my own range.

What do you love most about running Cheeky Little Soles?
There are lots of things I love about running Cheeky Little Soles. First and foremost I love being able to design and produce a fantastic quality product for the mums and bubs of Australia and the world. I love being about to be the driver of my own brand, it gives me the flexibility to be able to be there for my two young children.

What is your favourite Cheeky Little Soles design?
Ohhh I have a few!
At the moment I love the Cheeky Little Soles Dumper Baby Shoes and our Cheeky Little Soles Navy Anklet Walkers.
But my all time favourite would have to be Cheeky Little Soles Scooter Baby Shoes as that was the design that my son Finn wore and loved the most.

What should parents look for when selecting baby/toddler shoes?
Babies feet are soft and pliable, and pressure from the wrong type of footwear may hinder their development. Pediatricians recommend that bare foot is best for tiny feet to grow and strengthen naturally, but as parents we know it is not always practical. So…. soft soles are the next best thing!

When purchasing soft soled shoes for your baby make sure you get the sizing right! Babies and toddlers feet vary greatly in size. The best way to determine the correct infant shoe size to purchase is by measuring their feet to get the perfect fit. You want at least .5 but a maximum of 1cm wiggle room. Babies and toddlers have enough of a challenge getting up on their feet, poor or heavy fitting shoes are not going to help.

Once your little one has taken their first steps and is confident in putting one foot in front of the other (after roughly 6-8 weeks), they will be ready to move into a light-weight rubber soled shoe Walker range. We suggest during this transition time that you put a Walker on their feet when they are out discovering their new skill of walking, but put a soft sole shoe on them when they are inside. A soft sole shoe inside will continue to enable them to feel the floor and develop their walking skills.

Last week I wrote about needing a new pair of shoes for my youngest daughter and I am glad to say I have found a gorgeous pair perfect for the holiday. A year or so ago I first discovered the Cheeky Little Soles range and since then I have purchased three different pairs for both my girls, all equally fabulous. Knowing how well made these shoes are and how long they last I have no doubt the latest addition to their shoe collection is going to be another big favourite.

As soon as I saw these adorable Lily Walker Shoes ($54.95, size 12-18 months  – 2.5 years) I knew I had to have them, the neutral grey and silver tones go with anything in her wardrobe. Funky with red and girly with pink or purple, one pair of shoes that goes with everything is exactly what we need. The adjustable velcro closure ensures a perfect fit at all times and gives her ankle extra support which is very important for active toddlers.

Don’t worry, if your baby is not ready for the Cheeky Little Soles Walkers just yet there is more than enough choice in the soft soled range too. There are loads of different designs available for boys and girls in size small (0-6 months), medium (6-12 months) and large (12-18 months). Made from soft leather, cotton lined and with skid resistant, non slip soles these shoes are not only stylish but also safe and comfortable.

A special little mention goes out to these terribly cute Baby Ballet Slippers ($35.95), the finishing touch to a lovely baby girls outfit. Many mums love the ballet shoes trend but are a little hesistant about them slipping off from tiny baby feet, which is why the Cheeky Little Soles Ballet Slippers are specifically designed to be easy to put on AND stay on. There are 10 delightful colours to choose from.
