These shoes were made for walking...

Purchased these shoes for my little one as we were given a pair of hand me downs and loved them and then needed the next size up. They actually stay on her feet which is amazing! They are really well crafted and beautiful. I would get a pair with dark coloured soles next time instead of the tan.

Beautiful first baby shoes

I love all Skeanie shoes! These soft and stylish shoes were my baby boy's first shoes - I still keep them and going to put them in a frame as a keepsake:) the quality is superb and you can be sure a baby will enjoy wearing them. I recommend them to everyone!

Great first shoes

I bought these shoes for my son when he was about eight months and wanted to be on his feet. They were great pre-walkers -- super soft, easy to get on and they stayed on (minor miracle!). Great quality that wore really well.

Great first shoe

Love these Skeanie shoes for early walkers. Used these for my daughters and now my 12 month old son has his very own pair. Also a great way to get them to keep their socks on! The plain colour is great to go with lots of outfits.

The BEST pre-walker shoe on the market.

That's my opinion anyway. The pro's: made of natural material (leather), elasticised back makes the easy to pop on and comfortable to wear, the leather bottom allows the little toes to grip inside the shoe and the babe can still feel the floor surface, while being protected. More pro's: they look great. A simple design. Neat, tidy and stylish. We had many positive comments on the shoes - lots of ooh's and ahh's and oh how cute's! Yet more pro's: they're well priced for kids shoes. You can spend a lot more for over-engineered shoes. This really is all the wee ones need. Oh and they last... They are well made. I'll be handing on my little guys shoes to my sister when she has kids.

They say necessity is the mother of invention. And when new mother Natasha Barber had her first child in 2005 and couldn’t find the right kind of soft, quality shoes for her precious baby’s feet, she decided to do something about it – create her own. Her own company, that is. Natasha began to research tirelessly about foot health and development and was initially surprised to discover very little information or education available. It sparked in her the need to delve even deeper. What began as an interest in podiatry, turned into a passion for manufacturing shoes. It resulted in Natasha launching her own company, SKEANIE Shoes for Kids.

A baby’s foot contains more cartilage than bone. Although the structure of the foot develops fully by the first two years, the bones themselves do not fully develop and harden until around the age of 13. The greatest changes in the foot occur in the first three years. Children’s feet endure three times more stress than the average adult foot. A child’s foot sweats twice as much as an adult’s foot!

We recommend that you spray your SKEANIE footwear with a Shucare Water and Stain Repellent prior to wear. The best way to keep your SKEANIE footwear looking bright and new is to simply wipe over with a clean damp cloth or leather wipe. Applying Shucare Leather Conditioner and Renovating Polish will assist with maintaining their softness and colour. SKEANIE footwear should never be placed in the washing machine or dryer.

Our Baby, Toddler and Children's shoes have been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). All SKEANIE Shoes are designed in Australia and are Fair Trade Made. SKEANIE Shoes are Podiatry Designed and Approved. Colours may vary slightly.
