If craft is not really your thing, you can choose our 'ready made shoes' option from the drop down and we will sew the shoes for you. Really, we don't mind. We think it's kind of fun! Please allow a 2 week lead time for delivery of your ready made First Baby Shoes.
AKI Baby Shoes come in one size only and measure 13.5cm wide and 12cm long which is the average shoe length for 9-15 month toddlers but we strongly recommend you measure bub’s feet to make sure the fit is right.
To measure the length of the foot:
- Distract your little angel with something fun.. now.. GO!
- Have your child stand on a piece of paper.
- Mark at the heel and the longest toe on both feet, making sure toes are flat and not curled.
- Measure the distance between the marks.
Remember to measure the length of both feet. If one foot is larger, fit to the larger foot. Allow no more than 1.5cm extra for growth room.
To measure the width of the foot:
Take a tape measure and measure the circumference of your child’s foot by starting at the joint where his big toe begins, wrapping the tape measure around child‘s foot once, and ending at the joint where his little toe begins.
Like adult feet, babies' feet are slightly bigger at the end of the day making it the best time to measure them. We recommend checking at least every three to four months to see if your baby's shoe size has changed.
Learning to walk is a momentous occasion in a baby's life and First Baby Shoes are perfect for any little adventurer. The soft, flexible leather doesn't restrict movement, allowing feet to bend which is so important when bub is learning to walk as their use their toes to grip whilst getting used to being on their feet. Made from soft and durable natural cow leather First Baby Shoes kits are designed and created in Poland by a small family-run business. New to Australia, these unique shoes have already been spotted by Babyology .
