These baby shoes have revolutionized my first-year-baby-walking world. 

I was having trouble with Talia keeping something on her feet. She would literally walk around outside, barefoot, in February! I have darling crocs for her, but they leave marks on her feet. Other shoes just fall off as she walks, and they tend to throw off her balance. 

Then in church the other week, I was talking with my friend, Kaiti. She has six kids and if I need to know any answer to baby questions, kid questions, homeschool questions…I mean, she probably has a good idea for me. πŸ™‚ She showed me the simple, leather moccasins her one-year-old boy was wearing. I was intrigued! And so I went shopping…on Amazon.

I am so happy with these. So happy! They are flexible and light. They do not throw off her balance. They are durable (real leather), so she can wear them outside as she follows her brothers and sisters all over the yard! They are cute. She can wear them to church. They don’t fall off! 

You can just see the elastic peeking out a bit. This keeps the shoes on the baby’s feet. 

You can wear them with attitude.

Or with a smile. 

Even with a frown. Haha!

 

Here is a picture of the bottom. You can see how simply they are designed. 

I have noticed that her feet do get warm after she wears them for a while. Other than that, I have no complaints.

In fact, I really love them. πŸ™‚ Not to mention that these will be my go-to baby shower gift. I am on my fifth (and maybe last!) baby! Ahh…wasted years… haha!

You can buy all manner of these…most of them in the form of moccasins.

 

I had purchased these in the rose red color as my first try. They were too big for her, but mostly, I realized that the moccasin style is not my style. The price is great for real leather! And they have their own style of cuteness. I returned them, and used some of my personal fun money to buy the red ones she now has.

 

I love the scallops on the side. I love the Mary Jane style. I love that her feet will be protected this spring. πŸ™‚ 

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
