Review written by Toddle About VIP Club member, Julia Steptoe.
I was happy to hear that I had been chosen to do a review on this product as we were looking for a soft shoe suitable for our 18 month old daughter to walk around inside in and the nice thing about it was I got to choose which colour I wanted so I went for the metallic gold polka dot baby moccasins for her.
When they arrived they came very well packed, in a small white box that would be perfect to give as a gift, I was impressed by the care taken to package the shoes carefully.
As soon as I opened the pack I was very happy with my choice. The smell and feel of the genuine leather was wonderful, the shoes have clearly been put together with great care and attention and I could not fault them. The gold polka dots are small and work well with the grey fabric, there is a trim that runs around the top of the shoe of little tassles that just give the shoe that extra little special look. The sole of the shoes have small bumps to give some grip, perfect for use on our wooden floors. I have had a couple of dirt marks on there that have come off with no damage or visible effect on the fabric.
My daughter loves wearing these shoes, they are quite loose so they look to have a lot of life in them, but the fit is good and I don’t feel like they will slip off or rub, she seems very comfortable in them. She also wears them when napping in the pram so her feet are warm but not weighed down by heavy shoes, I wish I had had these from when she was a little baby! They feel smooth and soft, with nothing on the inside that could catch on her toes or irritate her feet.
Overall they are a stylish, yet practical design, the neutral colour means they match most outfits, though the website had so many other patterns that there was plenty of great options to choose from. I have had a few other mums ask where they are from and I could not recommend them enough, I will definitely be getting some more very soon.
