Sweet Little Soles

The time has come (at long last!), and Freida’s overdue gross-motor skills have been bumped up to par – my 17 month old is finally walking, folks. Here begins the quest for the perfect little “first pair”. With the summer month’s arrival, I can’t help but look to something a bit more open and airy (not to mention novel!) than a Stride Rite. Here’s a little roundup of my favorites so far:

1. Saltwater Sandals

The classic summertime sandal we wore to the beach as kids.

2.  Converse Glitter Chuck Taylors

Retro styled All Stars with some girly glam, easily slips on and off.

3. Tip Toey Joeys

Made from the softest leather to protect those rapidly growing baby bones.

4. PÉPÉ Biscottos

Like Birkenstocks for babies!

5. Baby Blochs

Bochs fabulously famous ballet shoes made for your mini ballerina.

6. Gucios

My favorite pair of modern first walkers, with plenty of support.
