Is it just us, or is everyone expecting a baby right now? It seems like if it’s not family, friends or work colleagues presenting you with their first ultrasound picture grinning from ear to ear; it’s your preferred daily gossip website announcing yet another celeb couple are expecting. Or perhaps you find yourself spreading your own wonderful news. Whichever the situation, if you have a bundle of joy coming into your life soon, we’re here to get you all excited with one of cutest things in the world (aside from actual babies) – teenie tiny shoes!
Now we know we’re a little biased, what with us being in the business of footwear and all, but we reckon one of the loveliest first gifts you can buy for a little new person is an adorable pair of shoes. We often find ourselves here at schuh HQ opening new deliveries and oohing and aahing at the miniature styles that we can fit (with plenty of space) in the palm of our hand…but we digress. We know finding a gift can be tricky for little tots; do mum and dad have enough baby grows, do they have too many bibs, will a blanket go to waste? And then factoring in if the gender is known or not, it can be a bit on a minefield. With that in mind, we’ve comprised four popular unisex options for you to choose from. It’s also worth noting that lots of our crib shoes go up to 12 months, with general size breaks of 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months; so you can buy shoes for them to wear straight away or to grow into (which mum and dad might thank you for).
First up we have a sure-winner. A staple for anyone’s footwear collection, you can get your fresh face off to a solid style start with the Converse 1st Star Crib.
If you’re buying for a baby who will be experiencing their first summer, the TOMS Tiny Classic is the perfect plimsoll for their tiny tootsies. Better still, you’re gifting to a child in need along with gifting to your new arrival, with the TOMS One for One Movement.
Perhaps your little human will one day become a tennis star or perhaps they’ll be a style guru; either way, the adidas Stan Smith Crib will get them off on the right foot.
Last but certainly not least, the UGG Erin 1 Crib is sure to go down a treat. Living in the UK means you need to keep those little toes nice and snug, and with a premium shearling lining, they’ll be safe against the elements.
