While Trent was learning to walk (and shortly before and after), he lived in soft-soled shoes. There was no need for real shoes and having the soft sole is supposed to help babies learn by letting them be able to move their feet and toes around and “grip” the floor. Unfortunately, we wished we had found them sooner, as Trent ALSO went barefoot for everything the first few months of his life and soft soled shoes would have been nice for him to have.
Luckily, Aubrey already has a pair of her own that will match any outfit!
We received this pair of adorable soft-soled leather baby shoes from MiniToes! MiniToes is an Etsy shop that offers handmade soft-soled letter baby shoes, as well as other baby accessories.
These would make such a cute gift for a momma of littles or for the littles themselves…they arrives in this cute little drawstring bag.
This simple yet fashionable shoe is Hand Made from 100% All Natural Leather. The inside of the leather is so soft and comfortable to babies’ skin and will not irritate their delicate skin. Leather is naturally breathable for your babies’ extra comfort. Easy slip-on/off shoes that STAY ON. On the sole is Soft Suede that acts as a all natural anti-slip which is very durable and flexible. Minitoes footwear mimics bare feet by flexing and bending with every step, supporting healthy growing feet.
Made out of all natural cow leather, it’s so light-weight and soft that your little baby can wear them all day and soon the shoes will wear into the perfect fit for your baby. The suede on the bottom provides the right amount of non-slip to help your baby move easily, but without slipping.
They offer over 200 designs, for both boys and girls, and from size 0-6months all the way up to 4T! They will even take custom requests.
I had a hard time narrowing down which design to choose. I finally decided on a white & silver pair that will match any outfit…so cute and versatile! I can see her wearing these a lot! They are extremely flexible and allow her feet to wiggle around. They can store flat and weigh next to nothing, so they are perfect to put in the diaper bag for travel too. The ankle elastic makes it super easy for the shoes to slip on/off…which is awesome, since she never stops moving her feet!
Due to sizing and how they are made, these shoes can grow with your child for several months, making them great investment that will definitely get plenty of use.
They are based in Canada, but offer fast shipping to the US as well, including extra Holiday shipping options too.
