With an almost walker on my hands I have baby shoes on the mind. Of course, while a baby doesn’t need more than one pair of shoes, it can’t hurt to look, right?
There is something just super special about baby shoes. Perhaps I’m being sentimental, but the fact they are so teeny-tiny makes them so much more appealing than the mud-covered scuffed shoes your preschooler brings home from kinder.
Emel Shoes is a European company that not only understand this, but more importantly, understand the particular need of a first walker. Emel has been hand making baby shoes in Europe for 20 years. Yes, you read that correctly – hand making each shoe.
Each baby shoe is designed specifically with the needs of new walkers in mind. The soles of the shoes are thin, flexible and anti-slip and the heel is firm enough to provide stability without hindering a child’s movement.
Also, they are super cute, and made enough like a boot as to make them difficult for your child to remove and throw from the pram while you aren’t looking.
My absolute favourites are the patent red boots. They are just perfect for winter, but whether your style is more sparkly or utilitarian, there are Emel shoes to suit.
