‘James’ Stay-On Baby Shoe

The James stay-on shoe is my bestseller. Like all my shoes it's designed to stay on, with no fiddly ties. They slip on easily then the structured, elasticated ankle band keeps them on, while still being flexible and comfy. The James shoe is a really fun knit, it has lots of interesting techniques and there's minimal finishing so they are quick to knit up making them a prefect baby gift.
