JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER:Best Baby Footwear Collection
WHO: Poco Nido
WHAT: Non-restrictive, soft sole baby shoes made with a suede or vegan sole and canvas upper, designed to pull-on and stay-on with their unique upper construction. All the while hitting the sweet spot of a less than £20 retail price.
WHY: The next best thing to bare feet, these super soft and flexible pull-on shoes not only look great but are a practical study in good foot health. The bare foot mimicking sole is great for encouraging strong muscle development, better balance and improved sensory feedback, all of which contribute to increased confidence. Our judges were very impressed by this cute and heath oriented approach to baby footwear, thought the fact that they are designed to stay on the feet was genius and loved the new retro print designs.
