Daisy Roots shoes

Disclosure: Financial compensation was not received for this post. A sample product was gifted to me from Daisy Roots. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.

Way back in August, when Theo was just three months old, I was contacted by Daisy Roots to see if I wanted to try out a pair of their soft sole leather shoes for Theo. After taking a long look at their website – they have so many cute designs to choose from! – I settled on these adorable Rusty Fox shoes. This was the first opportunity of this sort that’s come out of this blog, and I must say it was a tremendous honor that they reached out to me! When I received the shoes, I was so excited. I mean, just look how awesome they are!

The detail and design is impeccable, and I fell in love with these shoes right away.

Oh goodness, look how young he is here! Couldn’t even sit up on his own! The shoes were still a bit too big at this point, but I knew he’d grow into them quickly. He’s worn them almost every day since about 4-5 months old and they’ve held up nicely!

I was surprised because most baby shoes do. not. stay. ON. These ones do. He only managed to get one off ONCE so far, so these are definitely a win. And we’ve gotten so many compliments on them!

These leather shoes are so very European to me. I really love the look of them, especially with one of my bandana-style bibs I sewed. Not only are they adorable, but they’ve also been useful for crawling to give a little better traction than socks would provide. Since the soles these shoes are light in color, they do discolor a bit. Theo doesn’t walk yet, but he does stand a lot on our laps, and the soles have picked up a slightly blueish color from the dark dyes of our jeans. All part of normal wear and tear.

My little cowboy. He fell asleep like this! Don’t worry; I moved the bandana after I took this picture. Hah.

If you’re looking for a sweet pair of shoes for a little one in your life, I’d definitely recommend Daisy Roots!

Here are some of my personal favorites, apart from the fox:

aeroplane | donkey | hedgehog | penguins | robots union jack | dream catcher moccasins

(No affiliate links, for the record! Just here for my own ease of finding again in case I want to order a new pair!)

Update: Here are how the shoes look now! This is after several months of almost daily use. Well loved!

Just noticed how it almost looks like his footprint on the bottom!

  1. These indeed look adorable! What a coincidence that I just read a whole blog post about these opportunities and what some people imply from them… (they are in German but let me know if you are interested in reading them) . Would love to see a picture how they look now 😉

  2. That is so funny, I also reviewed a pair of Daisy Roots shoes and we chose the exact same design 🙂 I absolutely love them, sadly Birdy has almost grown out of them and the Euro rate is pretty bad. I looked around for alternatives and found a lot of similar shoes made in Germany on Dawanda. Not as cute as Daisy Roots but for a better price.
