Big adventures start with a baby step. 
This is our story.

Shooshoos™ are not just shoes. They’re custodians of first memories, protectors of knees and toes, liberators and fun-enablers, and they are there at every stage of one of the greatest adventures your little one will know: childhood.

For us, baby shoes need to be equal parts functional and magical. They need to protect growing bodies so as to encourage curious minds, which is exactly what children need to explore, imagine and discover the world.

From Cape Town
with love

Shooshoos™ are designed and 100% manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa.

Shooshoos is built on the ideas of adventure, support, quality, play fun and design excellence, and we have worked tirelessly since 1996 to bring the finest handcrafted leather shoes to fearless children and not-so-fearless parents around the globe.

We couldn’t be prouder of where we’re from and couldn’t be luckier to work where we work. We’re also grateful to have an advanced shipping system that let's us ship to two international locations and all 50 U.S states (but more on that here).

"Comfort is key when you think of kids shoes, Shooshoos offers exactly this and more. As a mom, I just know they are comfortable because my kids love wearing them. They are super cute as shoes come in a variety of colours and styles and they are easy to wear as one could just slip them on and off when needed. The kids shoes offers support too. The Shooshoos brand is one of my favorites for kids shoes."

Our own adventure began 7 million pairs ago* where all daring adventures start: In Africa.

Since 1996, all our shoes have been designed and manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa, where we employ some of the finest shoemakers in the country. The result? A range of top quality leather shoes time and time again.

Where We Dig In
Our Heels

We have a strict no-nasties policy here at Shooshoos, meaning our leathers are free of harmful or toxic substances, are earth-friendly, and are gentle on growing feet, knees and toes. Our shoemakers are masters of balancing podiatric and pediatric needs with dreamy designs, and all our shoes are 100% guaranteed.

Keeping Baby Feet Happy and Healthy

Few people know that a growing baby’s feet are made mostly of cartilage (yes, like your nose and ears!) so it’s important for the soles of their shoes to be soft, flexible and accommodating to feet that are on a mission to grow big and strong.

Another thing first-time parents learn very quickly is that, well, baby feet sweat. A lot. Every pair of Shooshoos is designed with a supple sole and eco-friendly breathable leather to keep your little one’s feet safe, dry and comfortable.


Our Promise

We are committed to providing our customers with the best shoes for baby and toddlers’ feet, so we use the highest quality materials available, and offer a wide range of handcrafted designs for boys and girls.
