We are two weeks and a few days away from meeting our sweet baby girl! I am so excited, and can hardly wait. Over the past few weeks, we have been building a cute little baby wardrobe for S, and I can't wait to dress her up in lots of pinks and purples. One of the things that my hubby and I have gone back and forth about is whether or not she needs infant shoes. When our son B was a baby, he almost never wore shoes, but I always placed little shoes on him when we went to church, etc. I felt that S needed to have a few pairs of cute and summery baby shoes to protect her tiny toes through the summer months.
One of my favorite places to look for infant and children's shoes is TinySoles. The TinySoles story begins in early 2007 as three mothers on a mission to find quality, development appropriate footwear for our infants. Unable to find anything in their local area, they turned to the internet. After disappointing experiences with online retailers and their lack of product knowledge, they discovered that most stores sell shoes picked for fashion over foot development. As they began to understand what healthy foot development was and why it is so important, their kids footwear became harder to find. They often discussed the latest developments in our SOLE search and began to wonder why there wasn’t a children's shoe store dedicated to healthy foot development with exceptional customer service by knowledgeable staff. Their mission to find this ultimate shoe experience soon became their obsession and TinySoles was born.
I was offered the opportunity to select a pair of TinySoles shoes for Baby S, and I was blown away by all of the adorable options from well-known footwear brands. Once I narrowed down my choices and made my selection, I had a sweet package from TinySoles at my door just a few days later.
My TinySoles package arrived, all wrapped up and adorable-looking!
I chose the sweet Livie and Luca Cora Light Pink Soft Sole Shoes.
One of the reasons that I chose this particular pair of baby girl shoes, is that I know a lot of friends who have boasted about Livie and Luca shoes, and how wonderful they are for development. Plus, they are super adorable. I know that S won't be wearing these as she learns to walk. These are sized 0-6 mo, and she'll be able to wear them and grow into them through the summer, and into the fall.
The side of the Livie and Luca shoebox had a foot-sizer right on the side!
Kids' feet are ever-growing. I still can't get over how many pairs of shoes we have gone through with B over the past five years. We were lucky if one pair of shoes lasted for more than four months at a time! I know that S' feet are going to grow just as fast, and having the sizer around the house will be very helpful to me when I go to order shoes for her online... from TinySoles, of course!
On the back of the box- the Livie and Luca guarantee. I also love that there's a QR code printed right on the box, which can be scanned with your smartphone!
Onto the shoes- look how tiny and sweet these pink little lovelies are!
Oh, the cuteness!
How could anyone not think that these tiny pink shoes are super adorable? They looked so cute online, and they look even cuter in person. The design alone is enough to make any mom (or grandma, aunt, friend) swoon. The light pink color will pair well with other cute pink outfits, whites for summertime, and then darker tones in the fall. I love that they can be worn with little socks, or sans socks as S' tiny feet grow and grow. Being able to have a pair of shoes for 6 months vs. just 3 months is music to this budget-conscious momma's ears!
These shoes are adjustable on the sides and include a Velcro closure, for easy on/easy off.
The heel is soft and comfy for baby's delicate feet.
Look how tiny these are!
I love the little details on these baby girl shoes. They almost remind me of the saddle shoes my sister and I wore when we were growing up in the 80's... complete with ruffled lace socks, of course. When worn without socks, these shoes allow air flow, keeping baby cool and comfy during warm weather, while keeping her feet protected.
These shoes are super flexible and move with baby.
The shoes are soft-soled but offer proper skid-proof protection for little walkers and scooters.

I cannot wait to see Baby S in these adorable shoes this summer. I love the little seashell design and think these will work perfectly for special occasions, Sunday mornings, and everyday wear. I will absolutely be shopping for S' shoes at TinySoles. They have so many brands of footwear that I love and trust for the development of such tiny feet. Not to mention, they have fantastic prices!
