First walking shoes by Poconido, so perfectly sweet!
Bram is now trotting steadily along, happy with his ability to carry things along with him. (And, consequently,  leaving a mess everywhere!) He's very cute with his penguin like walk and his determined little face, with those chubby cheeks and golden curls :). With walking come the first walking shoes, to protect the feet against ...

Wildling Barefoot Shoes
I know you’re usually used to crafting posts from me but when there is a gem I really feel I should share with you; I just can’t resist. Like these more-than-amazing shoes from a German brand called Wildling. Anna and Ran are a couple with three kids and for a long time they lived in ...

Beautiful, European-style shoes at Munchkin et Moi
Shoes -- we cannot live without them so we might as well embrace them! Here in continental Europe we have some very specific styles of shoes for children. I swear you can often recognise a European child by the kind of shoes he/she is wearing! We like brogues, buckled shoes and shoes that get passed ...

Poco Nido Velcro Superhero Shoes
The lovely teachers at Casper's school had been asking me to get him shoes without laces for a while already. They explained to me that when children are able to put on and take off their own shoes their independence and self-confidence grows. It's funny, because in the nursery class of the Dutch school the other children go ...

Kid's shoes from Meys & Co
My kid's shoe shop of choice here in Amsterdam is Meys & Co. I’m picky with shoes for my children-- they need to be strong, durable, cute (but plain), and slightly old-fashioned. I always find something to my taste at Meys & Co! There's a good selection of classic styles mixed with more fashionable footwear, and ...

Back to school with Young Soles shoes
It's back-to-school time! We have started exceptionally early here in Amsterdam -- our kids have been in school since mid-August already. The Netherlands is divided into three 'zones' -- each zone starts their summer vacation one week later than the others (with the aim to spread out vacation traffic etc). Our zone was the first to start their ...

Shoe Lacing, Montessori-Style
I am a big fan of Montessori methods of education and I’m still mourning over Tila’s Montessori daycare she went to in France. There are none here in Germany in the area we live at the moment so I try to implement as many Montessori principles at home as I can. I especially love their ...

Cool 10 IS shoes
My Little Square teamed up with cool shoe brand 10 IS and is offering these exclusive, limited edition (and super stylish!) velour shoes, printed with a patchwork of old persian rugs.

Shoe designer Ryan Ringholz launched Plae after becoming a dad, and took on the mission to use the biometric science reserved for athletes to develop a children's sports shoe. What is especially great about these shoes is ...

Make Your Own Pair of Baby Shoes
I love crafting in general but sewing is my favourite. Once upon a time I used to sew a lot, but one little super energetic little girl later this hobby somehow got pushed to the side a bit. Then the other day I got an email from Karolina, a lady behind this new brand from ...

Clotaire Shoes
I know I have written about these before, but I am in the middle of back to school shoe shopping, and I have fallen in love again with the Clotaire shoe collection. They are so well made and easy to wear and relatively inexpensive compared to other companies. We had a long browse on the ...

De Vries shoes
Autumn is definitely upon us here in Amsterdam, so it was about time to get new shoes for my kids! And I succeeded very well at the new Dutch children's shoe brand De Vries. Lilian, the designer and owner behind the brand, came up with one of the most clever (and cool!) concepts I've heard ...
