The most perfect baby bootie ever made

Posted by

Before Tavi was born, I learned that baby shoes are everyone’s favorite gift to give. Little dude had over 15 pairs of tiny little shoes in a dazzling array of adorableness waiting for him on his birthday. After he was born, I quickly learned that most baby shoes are either impossible to get on (lots of shoving and grunting on those little Robbees boots) or prone to falling off (I was in a panic when I thought we’d lost one of his hand-knit blue booties).

And then for Christmas, Offbeat Shrie gifted Tavi the most AMAZING baby booties. They are both easy to get on AND never fall off. The design is impeccable, with little elasticated snapping straps that essentially allow the bootie to open almost completely … and then, once snapped, hold on tight. Doesn’t it seem like ALL baby booties should be easy to get on and secure once they’re on? It just makes sense. These are pretty much the only shoes Tavi will wear from now until he’s 2 years old. Also, a warning for pregnant friends: these booties are also now my defacto baby shower gift for every single one of you.

I begged Shrie to tell me where she got them, and look at that: it’s Etsy seller MEandREEKIE, and she makes a whole range of these snapping booties, including a rang of colors of piratey ones Shrie got for Tavi, ladybug booties, adorable floral booties, and more. All of them are lined with super warm and soft fleece (no need for socks!), with microfiber soles. They range in size from newborn up to 2T.

Seriously ladies, in my whopping 2 months of experience as a mother (HA!) these are the best booties I’ve ever encountered. And as of August 2010, they’re on sale — TWO FOR ONE!

  1. Adorable indeed! My son was born in winter, so he just wore footed sleepers until spring. 🙂 These sure would come in handy those days when you want to put actual clothes on your baby. 😀

  2. I'm going to leave a comment! I am not a mum – but I think that I am the best auntie ever!! 🙂 My sister is having her third child – and I have been searching for THE gift for her and bub… this would be perfect! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win them for my sister (who happens to be the best sister and mum ever!!! – 🙂 do you see a theme??) and her little bub…
