Stylish and flexible to support the growth of little feet. Soft, yet durable, Rileyroos promote the proper development of the foot while protecting it from heel to toe with a flexible rubber sole. And parents love how they look! Designed to imitate barefoot walking, Rileyroos shoes have a flexible leather or suede sole with rubber padding to protect little feet. The sole curls above little toes to provide leverage as little ones make their natural gravitation from sitting to crawling to walking. Unlike many heavy or bulky first walking shoes, Rileyroos’ lightweight construction and protective bottoms support a child’s foot as they start walking and provide traction to prevent falls on slippery surfaces. The soles have small areas of rubber, cushioning the foot in all the right spots. Rileyroos was created with a focus on style, comfort and ease, which is most important for little growing feet. The design inspiration comes from a combination of European fashion trends and American spirit and casualness.
