IsaBooties is currently the only leading line of soft-soled baby shoes to earn a listing in Co-Op America’s Green Business Network… which right away tells you that the IsaBooties company is doing something right. It doesn’t hurt that the shoes themselves are totally adorable… and in this case, pretty is as pretty does.
There are plenty of cute soft-soled baby shoes on the market, but IsaBooties may just be king of the ‘green’ soft-soled baby shoe.
Green perks of IsaBooties:
- 100% animal-free
- Made fairly in the USA
- Made with fabrics that far exceed the Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety
- Packaging is recycled and recyclable and printed with soy ink
A nice additional perk would be if IsaBooties used organic fabrics – but even minus that element, these shoes are still very eco-friendly.
In addition to their sustainable design efforts, IsaBooties aims to improve the lives of families with their philanthropic endeavors. The company recently launched Project Happy Feet, a program that provides soft-soled baby shoes to babies and toddlers of families in need.
Lastly, IsaBooties boast safety features to keep tumbling prone tots out of harm’s way (as much as any shoe possibly can)!
Safety perks of IsaBooties:
- 100% machine-washable/machine-dryable – which means clean shoes for your tot’s feet. IsaBooties notes that even wash after wash their shoes maintain their shape.
- IsaBooties’ soles are made from Toughtek, a 100% animal-free “grip” fabric that is perfect for beginning walkers. Toughtek is actually used in high-end mountaineering gear because it maintains a non-slip quality in wet, dry, hot, and cold conditions; if it’ll keep a hiker on a mountain, it’ll keep your tot standing upright on slippery wooden floors! Toughtex is also extremely rugged (even used in booties worn by search and rescue dogs).
IsaBooties come in an array of colors and three distinct styles: classic, ballet criss-crossers, and racers, and they are available in 3 to 24 month sizes. You can see all of the well-priced style options at the IsaBooties online shop.
