‘Grace’ Stay-On Baby Shoe

Think dappled sunlight, wildflower meadows, picnic blankets and rosy-cheeked babies. This was the inspiration behind these beautiful stay-on baby shoes. They are a lightweight summer shoe that feels like a sock but fits like a shoe. They slip on easily then the structured, elasticated ankle band keeps them on, while still being flexible and comfy. The Grace baby shoe is a relaxing, speedy knit with minimal finishing, they make a perfect baby gift.
