Once your baby is cruising around the furniture and poised to make his first steps – it means its time to go shoe shopping. These are the cutest, and the most practical, shoes we’ve found for your baby’s first pair.
Ida Acorn shoes, £26, Clarks
Ultra-soft leather makes these shoes ideal for delicate feet and the t-bar makes a sturdy fit.
Ethel fuchsia shoes, £56, Step2wo
Every little girl loves shiny shoes – these come in pillar-box red too.
Harry boys khaki leather pre-walking, £25, Startrite
Ideal for cruisers and crawlers, these pre-walking shoes have a thinner sole so your toddler can get used to wearing shoes.
Suede boots, £22, Walkmates at Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer’s range of first shoes is great value and we love the bold and funky designs, too.
Boots, £45, Vertbaudet
These boots give sturdy ankle support and have the prettiest ribbon ties.
