BabyPaws soft soled shoe review

When Jack started walking, I researched a lot of brands to find non-toxic soft soled shoes for babies. I previously reviewed SoftStar shoes which I liked for their leather shoes with rubber soles that work well in wet weather. However, for completely soft everyday shoes my favorite brand is Baby Paws. I didn’t get anything for writing this review, but I wanted to share information in case anyone else is looking.

Pros:

  • The shoes are made of formaldehyde-free nontoxic leather
  • They are also chromium-free and pass tests for  acetaldehyde and glutaraldehyde
  • They are hand made in Australia
  • Most of them have velcro which works well because you can customize the ankle opening size (Jack’s ankles were too chubby for moccasin style shoes!)
  • They are completely soft leather all around and are the closest things to socks I’ve tried
  • They are easy to put on (our soft stars with laces are a little more time consuming)

Cons:

  • Because they are so soft they wear out faster- ours got holes in about 2 months
  • The lighter colored shoes look dirty easily
  • They are a little pricey, but there are also often sales
  • The sizes only go up to 24 months (soft star goes up to adult)

Overall we have loved them and are on our 2nd pair already! Jack even brings me his shoes to put on when I say we are going for a walk.
