Boumy Shoes, made in Holland, sent Baby B a pair of their Flower Power Pink shoes to try out. I’m a huge fan of soft soled shoes at least until children turn 2 although honestly, my kids have worn them through the winter when 3 because they tuck nicely into my bag, keep the kids’ socks on and therefore, their feet warmer. Being washable, soft soled shoes can also be cleaned regularly and disinfected after playing at a place like the mall playground…
These shoes are not only adorable, but they are well designed and very practical. Ok the flowers on them may not be practical, but why does practical have to be boring? The elastic around the ankle offers room for little ones to move in all different directions without having restricted movement, and the soft sole means they are not stuck with cumbersome rigid soles. Feet are protected while having the space to move and grow- it’s been my experience in 6 years as a mom that these shoes last a lot longer than single-sized shoes because they fit a range not a specific size. It doesn’t matter if the Boumy shoes run a bit big on your little one- and they will get lots and lots of use out of them before they move to a new size.
You can purchase Boumy Shoes right on their website, and the shoes are available in ages 0-2 for sizing. We opted to try the largest size, knowing they’d be too big for my daughter but anticipating her wearing them thruoughout the fall, winter and likely spring months.
