Sneaker - Desert

Sneakers - Desert

 

Gertrude and the King’s soft sole baby and toddler sneakers are perfect for little people who are thinking about walking. Perhaps they have taken their first steps or have even mastered their run! 

With a cotton canvas upper and a feather light, flexible rubber sole, this modern sneaker has your little person covered. Like all Gertrude and the King shoes, they’re machine washable (Hooray!!!) and the pull tag on the heel make them nice and easy to get on. Laces mean even the chubbiest little feet are taken care of too!

Why soft sole shoes? Recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists, soft sole shoes mimic bare feet and allow babies to improve their balance as well as strengthen all of those tiny muscles and toes. A firmer sole with minimal flexibility can interfere with all the hard work little feet need to do to establish their crawling and walking.

Shoes that don’t fit your little person well can really mess up their walking… Please measure their feet before ordering, do not go by age alone as every little person grows at their own pace.

Just a note on sizing. . .

Measure from the tip of the longest toe to the heel and add 1cm to 1.5cm for growing room. It may be best to go up a size if your little one is midway between sizes. . If you are buying a gift and are unable to measure the foot, we suggest going the next size up from their age.
