TODDLER ON THE RUN!

Dear SKEANIE - my name is AURELIA ROSE, I am 14 months old, I am a jet set type of baby, who just wants to get everything 'done and dusted' in 30seconds flat!!! My Nanna, Janet, decided that only the best would do for me (naturally DAHHLING) so she set about on a mission to find the right shoes for me.....we tried overseas, those fell off after two steps, department stores in Australia, (my dear how could you BE so ordinary!!! Those things were so hard I could have squashed a tortoise! I refused to get off my bum.....STAT!) Then we trundled into a baby shop...some large amount of 'smackers $$$$, later we had a pair of lovely pink soft leather pumps. My dear, was I chuffed, well no actually, because two weeks later, they fell off -due to the strap over my foot stretching so much. No refund! No fix! No go back!!!! Then, the 'old girl' started searching on line.....shake my ear lobes girl!!! She found you! Yes, YOU, SKEANIE......SKEANIE, did you hear? My lovely shoes arrived so fast we hardly had time to put on socks....."My dear....they fitted like a glove, I didn't rip them off in the car, I got up and walked the mall - darling, shopping like this is sooooo cool. I am high fashion, high comfort and highly mobile! Give me a month and I'll be out there looking for my summer wardrobe of SKEANIES!" Thanks Guys, love you to bits.

SKEANIE Pre-walker Lady Jane shoes in metallic gold are hand made from buttery soft leather. These shoes are made of genuine leather and feature a hook and loop closure with an elasticised ankle collar to keep the shoes fitted snugly.  The size Small has a textured suede sole to for suppleness and grip and the size Medium and Large feature a split rubber sole for flexibility and endurance. These shoes feature removable insoles, perfect for cleaning or orthotics.

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!

About SKEANIE
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.

DID YOU KNOW?
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.
