At birth the bones in a baby's foot are very soft and flexible more like the cartilage at the end of your nose. It is important that babies have a comfortable soft sole baby shoe that is able to move with the foot as much as possible during the early development of the foot to aid in the natural growth of the foot. With soft leather baby shoes the footwear is ideal for this scenario and is also non slip with a suede sole. Our shoes are perfect for homes with laminated or tiled flooring. Socks alone can be slippery on these surfaces and our baby shoes help a child in the vital crawling to walking stage.
