What our EXPERT says

All our shoes are designed with Mr. Pelligand, orthopedist-podiatrist and tested on babies in a controlled environment. Watch the video where he explains everything that goes into designing our footwear.

Premiers pas

Between 10 and 18 months, babies put more and more weight on their legs... stand up... then set off on the great adventure that is learning to walk. To help encourage those first steps you should find the right shoes for your soon to be toddler. For the first 3 years, choose a shoe with flexible soles and stiffened back for extra support. A shoe made from comfortable materials with a reinforced sole and extra arch support is even better. Our first step footwear are designed with all these features: - padded upper ankle and lower ankle stiffener to offer support, comfortable leather so feet can breath, slip-resistant sole reducing falls and removable insole to help you check their size regularly.


Made for independence

Our exclusive “I Can Dress Myself” collection is full of clever details like motif soles to help your child tell left foot from right and practical, chunky fastenings made especially for little fingers.
