I checked out Pedipeds (made in China), See Kai Run (made in China) Pedoodles (China and Indonesia), Preschoolians (made in China), etc.
Any suggestions? This is incredibly frustrating!
Most of the European brands: Ricosta, Primigi, Elephanten, De Osu, Naturino, Ecco, Doc Martens. Like the above poster, we buy all of dd's shoes from Zappos when we are not traveling abroad to buy them directly. Also, because the sizing is metric, European shoes always fit dd better.
Yes, there are! BabyPawsUSA shoes that are not only 'designed', but actually 'made' in Australia. They are not only super cute, but the leather and components are tested to ensure that they comply with standards such as the British and European Standard EN71-3, ASTM International Standard ASTM F963-07 and ASTM E 1645 and several more International Standards. They are being sold in several countries and, in the US through BabyPawsUSA.com.
