Humans and their feet come in all sorts of different lengths and sizes.
It is best to measure the human’s foot you are buying a pair of shoes for, but I get it, sometimes you just don’t know i.e. the baby isn’t born yet or you’re in between sizes. If this is the case chat to me via email or read the notes below.
Each shoe is handmade. Therefore the fit will be different between shoes, even within a pair. Generally the fit would be true to size. The ladies’ shoes are more of a ‘relaxed’ or ‘comfort’ fit slipper.
♥️ 35 European – US/AU 5-5.5
♥️ 36 European – US/AU 6

As you wear your house shoes (slippers) they will stretch a little and mould to your feet to truly become yours.
The ladies shoes come in different sole choices. While limited outdoor wear may be possible the ladies shoes are recommended for dry indoor use only.
My ladies shoes are made on medium width European shoe lasts and do come off the shoe lasts a little more on the wider than narrow side for a more ‘relaxed’ fit. There will also be room in the toes area.
I am happy to discuss wide or extra wide foot widths and sizing, but I am sorry I may not be able to accomodate these requests all the time. A small additional fee may also apply to a wider shoe request as I have to make a custom template and modify my shoe lasts.
When discussing feet sizes you will need to provide an outline of your foot with a length measurement and three width measurements – across the widest part, the arch and the heel. Do this by tracing around your foot on a piece of paper, add measurements, take a photo and then send it to me.
If you are unsure of foot size please measure your foot using the instructions here or I am more than happy to discuss.
Please measure baby’s foot, from the tip of their big toe to their heel, and order accordingly.
My advice would be to leave a little wiggle/growing room and size up where you are unsure. Contact me if you would like to to discuss shoe sizes.
Sizes six month and above also have natural rubber painted on the sole to provide non-slip for the little movers and shakers. Contact me if you would prefer not to have a painted rubber sole.
In terms of wear the baby shoes are fine 100% wool and wear similar to a knitted bootie. While the larger sizes have a painted on rubber sole it is recommended the shoes (slippers) are used in dry environments and for strictly indoor use only.
