Rosie Toesies - Little Shoe Boutique



IMG_3288 copyAt 18 months old little Lydia is already a shoe fan. Not only does my sweet Burger love a great pair of soft sole shoes... but I have fully convinced my friend (and fellow review mama) Kelly the great joy of a great set of Riley Roo or PediPed shoes.

Rosie Toesies is one of those stores that I just adore... and plan to support for as long as my children wear soft sole shoes.

The owner Jennifer is just a dear friend and I feel it is important to support those who carry such unique items. Rather than buying an imitation brand from Walmart who sells millions of shoes year round... why not support my friend Jennifer and at the same time get a much better product!

Since Taite was born he has worn soft sole shoes... and since Caleb was about 18 months old he has as well. I strongly believe they fit the babies feet better... and are more comfortable for them. More importantly I believe they can walk better in a softer shoe.

Want evidence? Months ago I took a video of Taite wearing a classic hard sole shoe... I then took a video of him wearing a soft sole brand (PediPeds at the time).

The video speaks for itself...




A bit of information. Taite at that time had been walking for months. He was a champ walker and was running by 11 months old. When placed into hard soles shoes though it was like he had never walked before.


Rosie Toesies recently started carrying a wonderful new line called RileyRoos. RileyRoos are very similar to the more famous brand called PediPeds. Both of them are great shoes! What drew me to the RileyRoo's this time around was the sole. They are just as soft as the Pedipeds but a bit stronger and more durable for my sons age. Taite is reaching age 2 and he is very rough. I knew this shoe would hold up to his boy-ness. :-)




Buy It: Rosie Toesies not only carries wonderful brands such as RileyRoo's... but also Pedipeds, trumpette socks and many many more fun and adorable "toesie" items. Feel free to use our coupon "simple" for FREE SHIPPING when you check out.


Win It: We are thrilled to be giving away a pair of the RileyRoo's! A randomly drawn winner will be chosen and gets to pick whatever RileyRoo shoe they want!

  14. What a great video, I m definitely convinced. When I need shoes I know where to go, I have the site bookmarked in my Baby folder so I won't forget. The look on his face when he tries to step in the hard shoes is too funny, great job! It is too bad everyone can't see the video and the difference, are they using it on the Rosie Toesis site?

  24. Seeing how much better my guy walks in bare feet than striderites, I am considering putting him back in soft soled shoes. The Sportie Tigers would be a cute way to test the theory!

  42. What great shoes! My daughter is on the verge of outgrowing the sizes though. Next year she probably won't be able to fit into them anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, what a video! My little guy walks fine in hard sole shoes, but it still seems clunky to me. I'd love to try soft soled shoes out for him.

  53. I totally agree, kids walk better in soft soles. My little one is just learning to walk and she won't even try if she isn't in soft soles or barefeet. Great giveaway.

  55. Oh my goodness. That video really does say it all. Linus doesn't wear shoes very often but when he does they are soft-soled. He's not walking yet but I'm sure he will be soon. Thanks for sharing this Drea.

  57. My twin 15 month olds have worn Robeez and Pedipeds. They are now ready for the non slip sole of the Rileyroos!! For my son, I'd love the Sportie in Wahoo. And, while I am struggling with the color choice, I'd love the Mary Janes in .... Bubble Gum. I need some advice on sizing too!! I've heard they run a little big.

    ReplyDelete
