It’s nothing new when I say that the offer in boys clothing and shoes is quite limited compared to the girls range. However, each time when I want to buy proper shoes for my son, reality hits even harder. Most of the time, the choice is limited to two options: the blue and the brown model (yawn!).
In July at the Playtime fair in Paris, I bumped into a couple from San Francisco who was presenting their footwear range for babies and toddlers, called Nimble Footwear. I immediately fell in love with the design of these little boots. Of course, I did like the mixed colors and prints but imagine how I felt when I discovered that the sole of these shoes is super flexible. JACKPOT! With being handmade, using organic quality leather, and featuring a super soft crepe sole, these boots combine both quality, style and comfort; with the latter being so crucial for the development of tiny kiddo feet.
My favorite is the Tan and Safety Orange boots but I also liked the new designs from the Spring ’16 collection, which will feature a super cool camouflage version but also more sleek styles such as monochrome slippers and boots.
I hope that a lot of buyers fell as much in love with Nimble Footwear as I did so that parents of boys will finally get to choose between more than just the blue and the brown model. Give us the mix & match, give us the leopard, give the camo!
