Buskins: Baby Shoes for On-the-Go!

I love soft-soled baby shoes.  I was stoked when I learned my fave baby socks company, Jazzy Toes, had purchased Buskins Australian-made soft-leather baby shoes.  I like these way better than other brands that incorporate elastic around the ankle because those always seemed to leave red marks after my son wore them for a long time.  Buskins fasten with velcro, so you have the option to make them as loose or as tight as you desire.

There are many cute styles to choose from and a variety of sizes.  The soft soles help with grip and proprioception (awareness of body position in space) as new walkers familiarize themselves with their first steps.

Buskins baby shoes are categorized into shoes, boots, and sandals.  So, you have options to protect baby’s feet year-round, regardless of the climate.

I tried out the navy leather hoppers on Calvin, and love them!  They are cut a bit narrow compared to other shoes.  But, the velcro fasteners make it so simple to size the appropriate width for growing feet.  Also, the Buskins site mentioned that the Sandoolz are also cut smaller, so pick the next larger size for your child.  I wish these buttery soft shoes came in my size because my closet would be chock-full of them!  So soft.  So stylish.  So awesome.

**WIN IT**

Buskins is offering 2 pairs of shoes for 2 Traveling with Baby winners!  One winner will receive a pair of Buskins PARTEES baby shoes for girls in either pink or white.  Another winner will receive a pair of Buskins HOPPER baby shoes for boys in tan suede.  Retail value $28 for each prize.

To enter, visit Buskins site and check out the amazing shoe selection for babies.  Then, leave a comment on this post on which product you’d like to win and for whom you’d like to win it!  Only one comment per person.  Multiple entries will be deleted.  The contest for Buskins ends at 11:59 PM (EST) on Saturday, August 23rd.
