Although it's important not to put babies and toddlers into proper shoes until their feet have developed and they have starting walking, keeping toes and soles warm and safe from scrapes is just as important when they are crawling as it is when they're cruising or walking.
Hurrah then, for the lovely new ranges from Start-rite for spring ’08.
Start-rite's pre-walkers are especially designed for babies once they start crawling. Gorgeous new styles in the Spring/Summer 2008 collection, available to purchase from end of January 2008, include Pippin Tot for girls and Dinky Toy for boys, making their footwear fun to put on rather than something boring and functional!
Pippin Tot is available in classy pink nubuck and is complemented by a quilted apple to keep tiny fingers busy. Dinky Tot is a playful style for boys, featuring a tactile rubber smiley face and a cushioned inner to keep feet comfortable.
