We all anticipate the day our little ones start walking. With my second little girl her walking simply meant it was time to start putting actual shoes on my her feet because leaving the house in socks wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I know, I know, second kid problems. Buying just any shoe for those early days of learning to walk isn’t as easy as it seems. You want something that will support their feet, yet give them space to naturally move and grow. On top of that, for everyone’s sake, you need something with a grip on the bottom so they don’t “go ice-skating” as my two year old would say. Shortly after Lola took her first steps all of this came back to me and I was determined to find a great fit for her feet and all new walkers. Within days I found the perfect shoe for your baby’s first steps: Robeez.
Robeez is a premier baby and toddler shoe brand that focus on soft-soled and flex-soled footwear to support healthy foot growth in babies from 0-24 months. Their adorable designs are what caught my eyes first but the functionality was quick to follow! They slide on easily and STAY on just as well. One huge important factor for me was getting a shoe that I didn’t have to squish her feet in to. I knew that would eventually just leave them red and swollen after taking the shoe off. Yes, we as women learn that beauty is pain but when it comes to my one-year-old’s developing feet I didn’t want that. I wanted a shoe that would be the next best option to being barefoot (because again, that wasn’t going to cut it in grocery store these days). The flexible soles and cushioned foam insole of the Robeez shoes do just that! These features help to keep the foot movement natural and flexible while providing cushion for comfort.
Another huge plus is the skid-resistant sole! They prevent slipping and offer superior support to a little one trying to catch their balance. This was a huge must have for finding her first walking shoes and surprisingly not many walker shoes have this!
I found exactly what I was looking for when asked to collaborate with Robeez and I am so happy to share them with you all now! The two above are the ones we received but you can shop their whole Mini Shoez line HERE.
ALSO, for those younger babies out there, Robeez offers infant soft sole shoes as well! You can view them all HERE. Super cute, on trend designs that are sure to fit whatever style you are going for! It doesn’t stop there either. They also have adorable socks to compliment your baby’s new shoes and you can view those HERE. Enjoy!!
