Excellent quality shoe, my daughter is now on her second pair of these in silver and have also added the pink ones to our collection. She wore her first pair regularly and they still looked new when we passed them onto a younger relative, great wearing and my daughter's first pick when choosing her own shoes, will continue purchasing these as she outgrows her current ones.


I have been buying Skeanie shoes since my son was born 6 years ago and now continue with my daughter. Can not recommend the quality and value high enough. I have purchased the Mary Janes for my daughter in pre-walkers to these shoes and they a great

Why aren't all shoes like these??

I bought these shoes and another style from Skeanie for my four year old daughter, and I'm extremely happy with them. It is very difficult to find completely flat, flexible shoes with a wide toe box such as these, and it seems few people realise the importance of those features in a shoe for young children, but also for older children and adults. This explains why: These shoes are fantastic - thank you Skeanie, but why are the same features not found in the kids (2-10 years) shoes and the gumboots? I do not understand why, once children get older, their shoes suddenly need heels. I would love more older children's options for thin soled, flexible, heel-less, wide toe box shoes!

excellent shoe

So stylish, well made and flexible. Great for little feet. She won't take them i guess that says it all!

Mary Janes

Such a beautiful soft flexible shoe - they look absoloutly adorable on! My daughter always draws attention when we're out with these shoes on her feet. I only wish they were a little more hard wearing so little scrapes wouldn't show up. I would most definetly buy these shoes again though. They are the only brand of shoe her father doesn't have trouble putting on her feet :)

SKEANIE Mary Jane shoes in Metallic Silver 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.

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!
