I have a dear friend who makes these shoes...here is her info. Her shoes rock!
Pitter Paw Shoes -Handcrafted soft leather shoes for your child
Pitter Paw Shoes is a family run WAHM business which began out of necessity. I made the first few pairs of shoes for my son on my home sewing machine. Everywhere we went we generated plenty of inquiries about the unusual shoes. I began filling requests for certain sizes, colors and special designs. Before I knew it I was actually in business. This was perfect since we had agreed to my staying home in order to be with my children.
The entire shoe is made of soft leather. The soft soles allow baby and toddler feet to flex and move naturally, letting toes grip as well as encouraging strong ankles and arches. Besides being extremely comfortable for the child, they are really easy to put on and virtually impossible for them to pull off due to the gentle elastic ankle. I have heard time and time again from my loyal customers how their babies had refused to keep shoes on their feet and would not crawl let alone practice those first few steps with stiff shoes on, but with their pitter paw soft soles they were everywhere.
I have many different accent designs we put on the front of the little shoes, butterfly, daisy, star/moon, crown, dinosaurs, kitty, dragonfly, acorn, castle, the list goes on and on. I find great pleasure in working directly with my customers creating the perfect combination of colors and your unique designs. I've had requests for anything from custom tow trucks to gorillas to shoes that match special outfits. They also come plain or multicolored. Pitter Paw Shoes range in size from 3-7. I also make specially sized shoes for children who have special needs.
I handcraft every pair of shoes one at a time from patterns which I created. I have since given my home sewing machine a break and graduated to a treadle (foot) powered Singer!

All children are shaped differently and all shoemakers' shoes are sized differently. I included approximate measurements of the outside sole of the shoes. Please go by measurement if you are in doubt .
Please note that these shoes will wear much longer then the general age group they are listed under. Due to the fact that the leather gently molds to the child's little foot and because it is very giving it will generally grow a bit along with the child!
