Our Favorite Baby Shoes

I know that women have a reputation for having a lot of shoes. I never thought I fit in that stereotype until I opened my closet one day and realized I had a bit of a problem. Now, I will fully admit I am a shoe hoarder, and my love of shoes has been passed on to my baby šŸ™‚ There are many types of baby shoes and I wanted to share some of my favorites; plus, I have a giveaway from one of my favorite shoe companies, The Wee Little Piggies!

Although, it may seem that shoes for babies are not necessary. I have found them to be quite useful. If nothing else shoes keep their little feet warm during the winter, and clean when they start walking/crawling/sitting. Not to mention, baby shoes are the cutest little things!

I have even found that they make great memory keepsakes. For example, Christmas ornaments — we “saved” baby’s first shoes to put on the tree as a memory each year. You could also save one pair from each size and put it in a shadow box frame with the age above the shoe to chart growth.

One thing to keep in mind about baby shoes is that it can be difficult to find the right fit. You really can’t just go by the baby’s age. It works best to measure your baby’s foot to ensure you get the best size. I use a seamstress measuring tape to measure Aiden’s foot, but there are also templates on Pinterest you can download. Also, shoes that have an elastic around the ankle work best for slipping shoes on and off while being hard for baby to constantly take off.

Here are some of my favorites:

Moccasins: I love a good moccasin, and of course they are even cuter on a baby! Aiden has one (OK — a few) pairs from Freshly Picked, Mimi and Lee and Tiny Baby Soles. There are also bootie style leather shoes like these which are great all-weather shoes. Moccasins are great for all seasons and look great with most every outfit.

Baby boots: I don’t have these —Ā  yet, but these baby riding boots are killing me. They are perfect for fall, and probably the most adorable things I have ever seen in my life. I can update once we own them. We did have a cozy pair of boots of similar to these last winter which were perfect for the cold and snow we got.

Sneakers: Of course, every baby needs a good sneaker — or four. We have lace up sneakers, Velcro sneakers and high tops.

Walkers: Once baby starts to walk a more supportive shoe is in order. Good options for new walkers are Pediped and Wobbly Waddlers.

Baby booties: My go to favorite shoes for Aiden are baby booties. They are practically slippers and can be worn all year. My go to store is The Wee Little Piggies on Etsy. I have purchased several pairs of her booties and love them all. There are so many amazing colors and patterns to choose from. Also, you can choose your sole for various stages of development. There is a fabric sole (best for babies not walking, crawling, or standing), a rubber sole (best for babies walking and standing) and a rubber sole & toe (best for crawling or walking babies; gives reinforcement in toes from crawling or daily wear).

It is obvious that the shoes are made with a lot of love. The packaging is just as cute as the shoes. I am so excited that The Wee Little Piggies is offering Baby Castan on Board readers a 25% discount on her store using promo code onboard2016. Plus one reader will get to win a pair of booties from The Wee Little Piggies. You don’t want to miss this chance to get these adorable shoes. Official entry is below!

About Melissa

Hi, Iā€™m Melissa! I am a mama to my baby Aiden Milo (born November 2015), and a police wife to my husband Dan. I started this blog because, after having Aiden, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the er-lovely (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
  • How cute! I had never heard of this brand. šŸ™‚

    • Melissa

      I found it by accident and have been in love ever since!

  • That Fit Fam

    these shoes look so easy to put on! with my son we bought all sorts of cute shoes with laces, like baby converse etc and they were IMPOSSIBLE! I could not get them on his feet so he went barefoot until he started walking. my baby girl is 5 months old so we will have to try these!

    • Melissa

      The are SO easy to put on. I learned pretty quickly that function is better than fashion when it comes to baby shoes. I think these have both! I hope you like them!

  • Melissa V Gunter

    These are so adorable! Probably my fav next to moccasins ???? The colors and patterns are cute too

    • Melissa

    • Melissa

      Thank you!!! Me too LOL

  • Emily | emilybogner.com
