With its beginnings back in 1968 Footmates offers fine infant and toddlers shoes with basic and classic patterns to meet today’s parents needs, the brand uses quality leather and materials to deliver a great looking shoe for little ones across the country keeping a great balance between looks, comfort and quality.
Footmates’ specializes in Custom Fit System (CFS) and offers dual-insoles to allow tailored fitting for toddler feet that can often be so tricky to find a good fitting shoe.
I was given the opportunity to try one of their shoes for my little guy and while I loved a lot of the shoes in their catalog, I decided to go with a classic look and opted for the Footmates Todd | Lace-up Toddler Dress Shoes.
Footmates Todd | Lace-up Toddler Dress Shoes
Lightweight and with a roomy toe box, these shoes are great for little ones that like mine would rather have their piggies free of any types of shoes.
As a matter of fact the little guy has proven to be quite difficult when it comes to shoes or socks and would rather take off his shoes as soon as he gets a chance.
These laced up shoes allow me to keep the shoes tight enough so it is more difficult for him to get rid of them and since they are nice and wide in the front, he is still comfortable.
The Todd Lace-up Toddler Dress Shoes by Footmates features a very convenient Custom Fit System with removable, dual insoles in Medium and Wide fitting that are included with the shoes to provide a personalized shoe fitting…I must to say, I really like this feature and wonder why all shoe makers do not do something like this?
The shoes are designed to provide proper arch support for developing feet and can also accommodate customized orthotics and other Pedorthic modifications which I am pretty sure my little guy is going to need at some point.
The shoes are beautifully designed and are made with great craftsmanship and attention to details…As a matter of fact, they remind me of the boots my brother use to wear when he was little and that are hard to find now days.
We are thinking about the baby’s christening and these shoes would be perfect for the occasion!
The shoes are available in 7 different colors, but I fell in love with the clean look of the white pair.
The shoes run a little big and they actually recommend you to order a ½ size down, but since my baby is not quite walking yet and their feet do grow so quick, I did not do that and ordered a full size which was still good for the little guy and that way he can grow in to his shoes.
The Todd design is one of the many options you will find in the Footmates catalog which by the way also includes adorable designs for girls.
So if you are in the market for a pair of comfortable, eye catching pair of shoes for your munchkins, I recommend you to take a peek of what Footmates has to offer
