Gorgeous shoes!

I adore these shoes and so does my daughter. They look and feel comfortable and are easy to put on. We are on the second pair for her now and have already purchased a bigger size for when she grows out of those. They are super versatile and have taken my daughter from flower girl at a wedding to shopping with mum.

Best shoes for wiggle toddler foot

After looking for a perfect hard sole shoes for my little girl , finally found Skeanie Mary Jane. We all apsolutly love it, easy to put it on not like all others Mary Jane on the market that I wasted so much $ on and it was impossible to keep her foot in there.adjastable back of this shoe is a great invention for kids at toddler and pre school age. I am highly recommend these quality and fancy looking shoes.

Fantastic shoes

My daughter loves these shoes and so do I. They are comfortable and easy enough for my 2yo daughter to put on herself. They match everything and are long wearing. My daughter is about to grow out of her third pair and we will both be happy to buy again.

Gorgeous, gorgeous shoes

What a beautiful little pair of shoes! So soft and comfy and look lovely on. My little girl absolutely adores these! She has worn them quite a lot already and they still look like new, which was surprising given that she climbs up and down stairs and plays at the park in them. Thank you Natasha, we love our new skeanies!

Gorgeous shoes!

My daughter has had many Skeanie Mary-Janes over the years but this muted gold has been our favourite pair! They are so pretty and go with everything. I only wish they came in bigger sizes as my daughter has grown up so fast!! I have always been confident that the SKEANIE brand is a quality shoe for growing feet.

SKEANIE Mary Jane shoes are hand made from soft genuine leather. These shoes feature luxurious leather uppers and lining, super light-weight flexible soles and FLEX-easeTM technology - elaticised ankle for added comfort and superior fit. Leather upper, leather lining with a flexible, light-weight man-made sole. Metallic leathers are created using a hot press technique in which foil is bonded to the leather.

Metallics are not as durable as regular leathers, and if the foil is scratched it will expose the leather underneath. There is no process we know of to re-foil shoes, so please tread with care!

SKEANIE leather shoes and boots are made from soft, comfortable leather and feature thin, flexible rubber and/or suede soles as this is recommend for growing feet. Our shoes should be worn for ‘special’ occasions. They do enjoy walking, running and playing; however, they do not like getting wet, being used as brakes on your bike or scooter, kicking a footy, climbing trees or walking through mud and dirt.


  • Ensure your child’s foot is relaxed before measuring.
  • Measure towards the end of the day to ensure foot is at it’s largest.
  • Place your child’s foot on a piece of paper Draw a line at the heel and at the big toe - measure the foot length in mm.
  • DO NOT add to your child’s foot length as wriggle room has been factored in.
  • Whilst we have tried our best to make our sizing guide as accurate as possible, the sizing of our shoes may vary slightly between designs

SKEANIE Shoes for Kids are podiatry-designed and approved in Australia and our Toddler and Pre-walker leather baby shoes have been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Podiatrists and paediatricians recommend light-weight, flexible-soled shoes for your baby and toddler. 

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.
