Way back in August, I had the opportunity to review a pair of soft sole baby shoes from Momo Baby, and we really loved them. In fact, my son just wore that pair yesterday. We still receive so many compliments on them whenever we venture out. Recently I was asked to review two more pairs of Momo Baby shoes; Rubber Sole Leather Shoes and Rubber Sole Leather Sneakers. Because these are two different products, and for the sake of keeping my review on the shorter end of things, these two products will be reviewed separately.
"We have carefully designed our shoes to protect your child's feet, while incorporating many beneficial attributes to promote quality foot quality. Momo Baby Leather Shoes with Flexible Rubber Sole feature high quality genuine leather with fashionable looks and excellent durability." ~ Momo Baby
While I think just about all of the Momo Baby styles are super adorable for the Rubber Sole Leather Shoes, we decided to go with the Rainbow Caterpillar in Tan. My kids are huge "Very Hungry Caterpillar" fans, so I thought this might be a cute way to add to the fun of a book they love so much. My son is growing like a weed, so after measuring his foot with a ruler, we decided size 6.5 would probably be our best bet. The only thing that I noticed was that 6.5 was the biggest size they offered. It's kind of a bummer because, while my son's feet fit in the shoe, he won't have very long in them, and these would be perfect through the majority of his toddler years.
Anywho, the shoes fit perfectly. They're so soft and easy to put on. With a wiggly toddler, the easy way is the best way? You know what I'm talking about. You have about 2.5 seconds to get each shoe on before they're off and running, or flipping themselves over, or squirming out of the seat like a melting scoop of ice cream.
- Rubber soles with deep tread pattern increases slip-resistance
- Flexibility of the sole enables a better natural shift of weight from the back to front of the shoe when walking
- Fan-shaped toe box resembles the shape of child's foot, allowing the big and small toe to move freely
- Adjustable straps with Velcro makes it simple to get on and off
- Genuine leather lining enhances breathability and removable, anti-bacterial, breathable insoles keep feet comfy and dry
- All lines of Momo Baby footwear has recently been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association's prestigious Seal of Acceptance.
Now that my son is completely mobile, having a rubber sole is a necessity. He likes to walk everywhere, and some places definitely need thicker bottoms (like in our yard), and treads (like in our muddy yard). My son walks effortlessly in these shoes, and I feel great knowing that the soles of his feet are protected, and that they won't slip off.
The Velcro strap is a fantastic touch. I love that I can quickly adjust how tight the shoes are based on whether or not he's wearing socks that day. Having a closed toe is great too. Even though I wouldn't consider them summer shoes, they're still wearable because they breath well, and they're light weight so if we go on any trips into the city, or hikes, he can definitely get by with these shoes in the warmer months.
Right now you can get these shoes on SALE from Momo Baby! They're currently only $24 instead of their original price of $49!
Make sure you browse through the Momo Baby website. They also offer maternity clothes, feeding items, and additional styles of shoes for your growing kiddlets.
