Pre-walker Leather Baby Shoes (0 - 2 Years)
SKEANIE hand-made leather baby 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 as dress shoes. Our shoes are made from soft leather, which will scuff. 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.
At SKEANIE, we work with Podiatrists to develop pre-walker baby shoes that mimic your baby's foot. This means our shoes provide protection without restriction - all our pre-walkers have been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
We recommend that you spray your SKEANIE footwear with 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.
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 shoes are handmade and sometimes they won't look identical, that’s because they’re not made by machines, they are made with real hands and real love.
