Many grown women adore shoe shopping, and now moms can have just as much fun shopping for their baby's footwear, thanks to a growing selection of creative and adorable shoes and booties. Below are just a few recommendations, proving exactly why the Internet is a better option than your typical shoe store when it comes to vibrant colors and cute designs.
Every parent will want to start with the simplest of booties. When it comes to baby footwear, neutral and simple definitely has its place in the sock drawer. An organic company such as Under the Nile is a good place to purchase booties, as the natural materials will not irritate sensitive skin. Available five colors, sized for newborns through three months, these will be your baby's first footwear adventure, with many more to come.
If you're fortunate enough to have a baby girl, you'll quickly join the ranks of parents who go crazy over Trumpette's Mary Jane socks . Completely adorable in six different colors, these socks simulate the classic little girl patent leather shoe, complete with skid-resistent soles - perfect for babies beginning to toddle.
However, Trumpette hasn't forgotten about the boys. Johnny's Socks is also a six pack set, featuring primary colored "sneakers" complete with a thin ribbon that helps replicate laces. They come in a super cute box, making it a perfect baby shower gift. Not into the sporty look? Trumpette also makes cowboy boot socks that are just as colorful and creative.
Once baby is beyond the booties stage, you'll want to make sure you have plenty of comfortable and durable shoes on hand. Robeez is a great brand to get you started, as it has so many different types to choose from, all of which have non-skid soles and are made from breathable leather. The Robeez Athletic is a great example of this, as they are machine washable and have been approved by the American Pediatric Association. Warm enough to keep baby warm in winter, they are also equipped with enough venthilation to keep feet from summer sweat.
Then there are shoes like the teddy bear plush boots that are designed for the littlest of feet. You can't get much cuter than these winter favorites that will match any outfit. Shoes for babies also come with cute animal friends , a simple political message , and teeny tiny versions of the latest trends.
