Sure they have pint-size feet to begin with, but now, you can make your baby’s carbon footprint even smaller with the new eco-friendly footwear from Robeez.

Available in both the company’s soft sole and 1st Stepz collections, each style is made of canvas derived from organically-grown cotton and recycled leathers. Plus, the inner linings are chrome-free leather, which keep mini feet (and toes) breathing easy and smelling fresh.

And true to the Robeez aesthetic, the shoes feature fun, colorful designs — frogs, footprints, flowers and more — created with environmentally-friendly, water-soluble inks.

Prices start at around $22 and are available online now. Though they won’t realize it, your little ones will be taking the first step toward an eco-conscious life!

SUPER IDEA! I would buy them if my children were younger! It makes so much sense as young babies often put their feet in their mouth! Sometimes the leather has a chemical smell, especially if it’s painted, or a Robeez “knock-off.”

This is actually not a great idea for kids that “put their feet in their mouths”, bacteria and germs thrive in the loosely woven fabric. Please DO not let your children put your footwear in their mouth but these are the worst. Think of these like the dirtiest shirt that you do not wash. Think of what is picked up in the fibers and what is growing and thriving there. Then think if you would let you child put an unwashed gym shirt in their mouth (the germs they are walking on are far worse than sweat).]
