My favorite brand of soft-soled baby shoes has just released a new line of flexible, rubber, soft-soled shoes for babes and toddlers called Smileys. What an aptly named line! These digs have puckered and smiley traction on the soles as well as the soft brushed suede and leather uppers we’ve grown to know and love in Shooshoos.
Like the other Shooshoos baby shoes, Smileys are pediatrician-recommended and chiropractor-recommended for little feet. Even if your little guy is unsure of his first steps, Smileys will protect his feet, enable flexible motion through the gait cycle, promoting balance and proper foot development. It doesn’t hurt that they look super cool, too.
Now that Calvin’s very steady on his feet, he needs tougher soles for all of his walking adventures. There are puddles, sidewalks and grass to conquer, and the suede soles don’t cut it for such an active boy. So, it’s nice to transition him to very flexible rubber soles that allow his feet to move and continue to develop balance.
Calvin tried the sporty denim with accented silver striping on the sides and beneath the navy laces (which you don’t actually have to tie!). These little runners have a leather loop on the back for easy on/off access. The elasticized ankle keeps the shoe on, but doesn’t pinch the ankles. The wide, reinforced toe box is great for wide and developing baby feet.
High cute factor with the adorable styles available for girls and boys. Personally, i adore the smiley face tracks.
What’s the BEST part about these awesome baby shoes that keep your sweeties little piggies warm and dry in the wet, wintry weather? The price.
They’re unbelievably affordable at $24.95 per pair. That’s at least $15 less expensive than other brands on the market. Hello, Smileys! You’re my new-found shoe love to get my son through Toddlerhood.
Even better, Shooshoos is offering a 20% discount on Smileys through December 20th with promotion code “smileysole“. That’s $5 savings this month which makes these shoes a steal!
If that’s still not a low enough price for you, you have a chance to spend $0 for a pair of Smileys. We’ve teamed up with Shooshoos to offer one lucky reader the opportunity to win. As my grandfather always says, “you can’t get a better price than free.”
