Stylish children's footwear with your baby's health in mind

In the world of baby and children's footwear there are only a handful of companies that go above and beyond minimum requirements and go out of their way to make sure the shoes they make are safe and non-toxic. Among these is Little Soles, a children's footwear company based in Canada. They have generously shared their top quality shoes with Eco-Babyz. We received the Couture Sandal which is a great summer pair for little girls. 

Quality & Value: Little Soles are designed to last and to withstand any wear and tear a toddler can throw at them. I am sure that my daughter will not be the only one wearing this pair, they can be passed on to siblings, cousins, and friends. You can buy a reasonably priced pair for as low as $19.99 and most regular prices range from $24.99 for baby shoes to $49.95 for older children's shoes.  The clearance section is a great place to find good deals and they have a newsletter that will keep you in the loop. 

How is this green: Little Soles shoes go through extensive testing for lead, arsenic, cadmium, antimony, barium, mercury, and selenium. You can rest assured that the shoes your baby is wearing are not toxic and will not cause harm. Moreover, Little Soles is and environmentally and socially responsible company. You can always stop by their website to find out more.

Fit & Design: As you can see in the photo, the shoes are a little big at the moment! If we could have tried them on we probably would get a size smaller. So if you are buying a pair that you want your child to wear immediately, don't get the next size up. These shoes are beautifully designed for little feet. There is good support for the foot at the heel yet it is still a sandal. For this particular style I wish the soles were a light color, it would look better with outfits for special occasions. Of course that's just a preference and they have many other great styles to choose from. I just love how unique all the designs are, they don't look like the average baby shoe. I'm showing a couple more styles in the photos.
 
Company: There are many companies that put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But if more companies would be like Little Soles, parents would not have to look to legislation to provide that safety. The updated CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) merely enforces a lead reduction, but does not ban it in children's products. It doesn't even contain regulations for other toxins, Little Soles takes on the responsibility for the safety of their products and is voluntarily testing their shoes - something I wish more companies would do. Little Soles is a role model for other children's products manufacturers and an inspiration to small companies and entrepreneurs! 

 Did I mention I love their user friendly website? The shoe tree is really cute!
