Although Little Leather shoes are downright adorable, did you know that they aren’t just cutesy shoes?

So what is natural foot development?

Our feet are made up of a complicated system of 28 bones, interlaced with ligaments, blood vessels, nerves and muscles. The structure of your little loves feet remains soft and pliable up until they’re five years old. Whatever happens to them in these early years will set them up for life, and abnormal pressure can easily cause ongoing issues later on.


That’s why it’s absolutely vital to have the right footwear for them from the get go. So feet can develop naturally.


The butter soft soles on our Little Leather shoes allow the muscles and ligaments in the foot to form naturally without having to conform to a moulded sole.  Featuring a wide toe space allowing plenty of wiggle room.


They also help your little one to have greater perception of the ground beneath them as they take those first wobbly steps.


Our shoes feature an elasticized ankle, helping to keep them on as they put them through their paces as they walk play and soon enough run.


Little Leather loves keeping your little ones feet happy and healthy. Share the word on natural foot development with your tribe today!
