Sizing & Fit
These sizes are the average length of babies feet. Your baby’s feet may be longer or shorter than average. If you are able, be sure to measure your baby’s feet before you choose the size. Measure the foot from the tip of the big toe to the end of the heel. If possible, do this while the child is standing, add about 1/8” to that length for a bit of wiggle room. Choose the correct size using the size chart below. If your babies little foot is in between two sizes, we suggest purchasing the larger size.
Because these shoes are sewn by hand rather then a factory, we will try to eliminate some sizing errors however please understand if some measurements have minimal mistakes.
Secondly, all our shoes are lined with the highest quality fleece, we use either organic cotton or bamboo. This means the shoes can fit tight at first, that’s OKAY! We found without the lining, fabrics can be rough on little ankles. The fabric will flatten out, form to the foot and the cork will stretch with wear and pressure. This natural lining regulates the temperature to ensure babies feet are not to hot in the summer and not to cold in the winter.
Lastly, we work with an invisible elastic, this means they stay on better and mold to the child’s foot with wear.

How do they fit?
Our Sizing chart is provided in the sizing category. We make our shoes to fit snug. It’s normal for them to be tight, and have minimal room around the foot. The material will expand and soften with wear.
Do they stay on?
Yes! We have tightened the elastics many times to ensure babies kicks are allowed. Rarely does the shoe leave the foot!
Do you ship to the USA?
Yes! of course.

How long will they last?
We get this question a lot! Every family and child is so different, we have tested all our shoes with confidence on our own son and have been very impressed with what cork can withstand.
While cork is a durable material it is perfectly normal for some of the finish and colour to come off from crawling and toe dragging.
Also, we use natural cork as our bottom sole for our 0-9M shoes, which makes for a great “grippy” indoor and dry outdoor weather feature.
We realize babies 9M+ require a more durable sole therefore we use an abrasion resistant, earth friendly textile on these larger sizes. If you wish to have to sole remain natural please place a custom order.
In all fairness, longevity is honestly based on care.
