The most CORRECT children's shoes on the market :-

This is our second pair of shoes and we kindly ask (beg:)) you to please make them in size 27! After having tried all possible brands (both local and EU) I have decided that SKEANIE: - are wide enough for little kids's feet, - have very flexible soles, - have CORRECT heels and toes, - are easy to put on / take off with clumsy kids' fingers :), - have very light breathable leather inside, which I find perfect, - need to be made in all sorts of other styles and BIGGER SIZES, PLEASE :) Overall, we're more than happy: great product, extremely fast shipping. Thanks HEAPS!

Love these

These shoes are fantastic, they make my little one happy because she can put them on herself.

Stylish and great for little feet

Skeanie Trainers are the best shoes we've had for our little man. He's on his third or fourth pair (due to growth, not wear) and LOVES them, and as a Mum so do I. They are reasonably priced, lightweight soft leather and nice and flexible, important for growing feet. They are a good adjustable fit across the front with a great velcro strap making it easy for little ones to learn how to put them on and take them off themselves. I only wish they came in more colours so we didn't have to buy anything else (blacks and greys would be great - white aren't great for everyday shoes and I'm not a fan of brown)

Good toddler shoe

This is my nearly 2 year olds 4th or 5th pair of skeanies...they fit his wide feet so nicely and he tolerates wearing them because they are nice and soft. These ones are so nice looking, not just a pair of sneakers so he can wear them with just about anything.

Smart and classy

These are a smart, practical little shoe which my toddler enjoys wearing. They're more formal than "trainers" so don't look quite right with tracksuit pants but they're great for the park, daycare, or a special event.

SKEANIE First Walker Todder Leather Trainers in Navy & Red are hand made from soft genuine leather. These shoes feature luxurious leather uppers and lining with flexible rubber soles with a toe kick guard, perfect for growing feet.

SIZING - How to Measure your Child's Feet.

  • 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

Size = Maximum Foot Length
Size 20 = 116mm
Size 21 = 123mm
Size 22 = 130mm
Size 23 = 137mm
Size 24 = 145mm
Size 25 = 152mm
Size 26 = 159mm

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.
