WINNER OF BEST BABY FOOTWEAR COLLECTION: SILVER
WHO: Poco Nido
WHAT: Poco Nido Mini Shoes
WHY: These super cute, printed starter shoes really stood out in the line up and our judges praised them for their originality and sense of fun. Not only are these shoes gorgeous to look at, but they’re also incredibly soft and flexible, making them extremely foot friendly as well as being easy to stow in your handbag pocket. Features such as a wide toe box for natural toe splay and free joint movement, a slim flexible outsole, giving as close a connection to the ground as possible with no arch support to ensure that immature foot muscles aren’t weakened, were all noted and applauded.

WHO: mia and mika
WHAT: mia and mika premium soft soled vegetable tanned baby shoes
WHY: Our judges loved these fresh looking moccasins that they felt really elevated baby shoes from cutesy to cool. The super soft vegetable tanned leather in delicious contrast colours and hand painted monochrome designs really stood out, and our panel felt that these designs would appeal to parents who wanted to dress their children with a pared back, contemporary feel. As well as being stylish, these shoes felt very well made and our panel appreciated the deep, gently elasticated ankle cuffs that help keep them on children’s feet.
