Bubysums were created when a husband and wife team were shopping for shoes for their own 9 month old and couldn’t find anything that worked. Many soft-soled baby shoes have a tight elastic band around the top and can be hard to get on and off chubby baby feet. Bubysums solves this problem by combining the shoe with a stretchy sock – and it works brilliantly!
Bubysums slip on in seconds and have no laces, velcro, snaps or other parts to mess with so Caroline instantly forgets she’s even wearing them. They’re stretchy enough to fit over tights or socks if it’s really cold, but fit great on their own. And how cute is the ballet slipper pattern? The very first time Caroline wore them I was stopped twice to ask where she got her “ballet slippers”. We call them her “dancing shoes” and Caroline does a little dance every time she remembers she has them on.
Bubysums come in patterns for girls and boys, have genuine leather soles, are machine washable (really! I washed them!) and definitely toddler-approved. I love that they eliminate the fight over shoes and socks when we leave the house but are still sturdy and comfortable enough for a very active toddler. I also love that they’re so flexible when it comes to variations in a child’s foot sizes. Caroline has high arches and wide feet but that’s not a problem with Bubysums. Since everything about the shoe is soft there isn’t any breaking-in period and they will fit longer than a hard-soled shoe would.
I am very excited about Bubysums soft soled baby shoes and I’m adding the little pink sneaker ones to Caroline’s birthday list right away! In the mean time, she’ll be doing plenty of dancing in her “dancing shoes”.
