We’re still knee deep in winter, but with spring just around the corner, being fashion forward means not waiting for the thaw to shop warmer weather trends! Here are five pairs of our favorite eco-friendly shoes for green babies, to help you get your little one geared up to head outdoors in style!
FRANNY & JUNE’S ECO FELT BABY SHOES
We raved about Franny & June’s Halloween inspired sweet kicks for baby, and we’re just as enamored with their entire collection of baby shoes made from eco felt: “recycled plastic bottles bonded to soft cotton flannel.” These handmade soft soled baby shoes contain no inside seams to ensure no irritation of baby’s skin, and their elastic straps help keep them on your little one’s feet!
TINY TOMS SHOES
tiny TOMS put your babe on the path to do-gooding before she can even toddle! With every pair you purchase, TOMS gives a pair to a child in need. Available in 8 designs, the uppers are made from canvas and are soled with airy, eco-friendly EVA foam, and textured on the bottom for improved traction.
These gorgeous handmade linen and wool felt shoes by LaLa Shoes are definite showstoppers. Available in a variety of vibrant, playful colors, they are made with Oeko-Tex-certified wool-felt, and contain no open inside seams. Their French linen confections are sewn on to add a charming, sophisticated touch.
DIDDLE DUMPLING SHOES
As sweet as their name, Diddle Dumpling wool felt shoes are handmade and embellished with adorable details like the appliqued bird with hand embroidered detailing shown above. The soles are made from recycled leather and each pair features a coordinating fabric lining and an elastic band or button closure to keep them secure on tiny feet.
The green attributes of Isabooties make them a total shoe-in for our list. They are made fairly in the USA with fabrics that exceed the Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety and they are 100% animal free, formaldehyde free, and their packaging is recycled and recyclable and printed with soy inks. They also feature soles made with Toughtek, a 100% animal-free “grip” fabric that is perfect for beginning walkers.
