First shoes.....and 2nd, 3rd etc!!

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

First shoes.....and 2nd, 3rd etc!!

Ok.....in true earth mother mode....I tried to keep Hari barefoot for as long as poss.....but with the weather getting cooler....and him taking his first steps....on his birthday no less....(he's obviously read the milestones in my beloved Dr Winston book)........I decided to take a look at shoes.....

I don't know if anyone else felt this.....but Clarks & Startrite shoes just seemed too heavy and clumpy for his tiny, delicate and soft boned feet....plus he hated all the shoes the minute he tried them on, acting like they were lead weights....which set me thinking....surely there's a more barefoot stylee....option.

I read loads of expert advice on tinternet etc......which kept repeating that LOs should be barefoot as much as poss....and avoid heavy shoes.....which made me even more anxious not to get him a heavy pair of shoes.....and then I found



They are AMAZING. Really great shoes....dead light, can be used outside (just not in the rain....but let's face it....he's not going to be doing any all weather hiking just yet!).

He loves them....and is happy to walk around in them all day (although we still keep him barefoot as much as poss). If you read the blurb on the site....it also tells you about their philosophy of keeping things as natural as poss etc.
You just print off the sizing chart....and away you go.....because the shoes are so soft....you don't worry about them pinching....as they are so flexible...and adjustable for width fittings.

They now also do shoes for older kids and we'll def be getting them.

They also work out about £22...landed in the UK.....the same price as CLarks......

I love these....almost as much as I love BLW!

I was thinking of making it worth the shipping charge by joining forces with my neighbour & ordering a few different sizes...

Anyone know what shops in the UK sell them?

hi all,

we have also been happy with our pair of Naturino / Falcotto shoes. They are from an Italian company (website: www.naturino.com and click your way through, do not freak if it suddenly turns into Italian-speak).

But it looks like they do not distribute in the UK - how bizzarre. I got ours on Ebay. I have to say they are a bit pricey (and I mean that) very bendy sole though and you can take out the inset/inlay to see if it is getting too small.
