So you may have just stumbled across our page or be one of our avid customers and like what you see as you scroll through pages of awesome kids fashion.
I thought I would let you know what we are all about, giving you a bit of insight into how we became 'us'. I always like reading the about us page on businesses web pages so this is a bit the same but in more depth. Hopefully you find it interesting!!
Behind the scenes, is me who runs the show and my hubby who does all the technical support aka the computer geek. We have 3 beautiful boys, that are pretty much the reason for this business and are our 'testers'. If it doesn't pass that test we don't sell it!
We have been running Baby Bootique since late 2009 and It all started when I was pregnant with my second son and needed something else to do, crazy I know! We were in the process of buying my son who was 1 at the time his first pair of shoes. We bought a pair from a chain store, as you did and they were ugly, not only that but he just stomped around like he had bricks on his feet. I thought there has to be better shoes out there and then BAM we came up with the idea well my hubby did to start our own online business selling baby and toddler shoes that were great for kids feet.
We started with 4 brands and about 10 styles and now have way too many to count. It just keeps growing thanks to a slight shoe fetish I have!
Our shoes have to meet a strict criteria or we won't sell them.
- they need to be flexible for baby's and still have some give once they get into the toddler and kid age.
- they need to be quality so they last
-they need to look after your little one's feet as they grow.
Hence why the brands we sell such as Old Soles, Bobux, Tip Toey Joey, Native and freycoo as they have done their research and made sure all of these criteria have been met.
I'm just as fussy with clothes and when we decided to branch out in 2013 into the big wide world of kids fashion, we still had high standards to be met. The clothes had to be good quality, durable, look after our kiddies and also look super cool! With brands such as Huxbaby, Milky, Anarkid and Band of Boys plus heaps more, I think we have achieved that.
So, we have created an online hub so to speak where you can come and get all you need to dress your little one, knowing it's the BEST! Well I think it is and I hope you do too :)
My girl has had them on since they arrived. Old soles are the best.
My daughter runs around in puddles, mud and sometimes rough surfaces, these shoes are really protective from hard ground and easy to clean when they get dirty. These are best purchase so far!
I bought these sandals for my granddaughter. She has small feet but has very wide feet and so it is a bit hard to buy shoes for her. These were a perfect fit and very gentle on her feet as she trouble with blisters being such an active child. I would highly recommend Baby Bootique to everyone for their wonderful service.
Item arrived very quickly and as expected.
Love the colour and very soft, Flexible and comfortable
My daughter had her first pair last year and after a whole season of wear they looked as good as new.
These shoes are beautifully designed and soft and made for the comfort of little feet. Arrived within a week. Fantastic service. So happy to have found shoes that are available in smaller sizes as our little princess is a very dainty girl
Great sandles my girls love them, super comfortable and flexible
Good customer service and speedy delivery!!
Easy to put on and very nice colour too. I purposely bought bigger size but still it fits my little one well. Sleeves are longer than normal cloth.
Beautiful little shoes and a great fit my little boys has very small feet was hard to find walking shoes in the right size I will definitely recommend this brand
Love these!! Well made, great service, will definitely be purchasing all my baby shoes from here
My toddler loves these high tops- room for wider feet and high arches and so easy to put on. Love them!
Lovely shoes, prompt delivery
This is the cutest onesie I bought my son this year! The design is adorable and I love that it looks even nicer after washed! I love it so much that I ordered another one in a bigger size to have for him once he grows this one out! ☺️❤️I do wish there were more designs as cute as this one! I struggle to find nice designs for boys.
Cannot beat this product for preschool the oil cloth fabric is so easy to wipe clean and stays in great condition. Previous Penny Scanllan backpack and lunchbox set for my eldest son lasted over three years of Day Care and Preschool attendance and still looks brand new!
Fast delivery. Shoes were packed with a little note from store manager,I guess. Nice personal touch:) will be shopping again.
Saltwater sandals are always my got sandal great quality and look beautiful.
Purchasing again for my Granddaughter. Gorgeous little dress that can be worn with or without tights. So cute also with a little cardi.
I purchased this little dress for my Granddaughter. It is absolutely gorgeous. The material is very soft and the sizing is a loose fit.
Absolutely gorgeous. Beautifully made and fast shipping. I will definitely be back.
My daughter has had Old sole boots 3 years in a row. We change colour but stay with a similar style boot. They are easy for her to get on and off, super comfy and look great too. We bought them on sale so even better!
So soft and warm! Great little jacket
The dress is super cute and seller shipped it sooo quickly! Thanks:)
Nice color and soft, good choice for little ones.
Great price. Wonderful service. Will use you again.
Order arrived promptly to my address in the UAE. Tracking system curbed my anxiety on the arrival of my order. Order arrived as purchased and I loved the little touch of the hand written note from baby bootique. Totally confident to order again especially given the nature of it being an international order. Thanks Baby Bootique!
My daughter loves it very much. It is very comfortable, simple and nice design. The strap means she can run, and play on the beach without worrying the sandal would come off from her feet. My older daughter also had 1, and she loves it too.
Fits perfectly great that it a one size fits most.
The best sandals for my little bub. He just turned 1 and started walking around. It’s also the best walking shoes fo hin coz it’s light and comfy.
I love this jumper. So soft, I thought it was wool.
Perfect sweater dress for any occasion, to go with long socks or leggings & any type of shoe, u can dress it casual or dress it up!
Beautiful quality and good sizing . I’ve now bought three for the grandchildren. Kids love the soft rubbery feel of the material
I’m not one to dress my little boy in trackies, but these are an exception. They look really stylish and are great quality.
Love these jeans for my almost 3 year old. Very stylish.
Beautiful little top.
We are big fans of Old Soles. I've had 3 little ones in their shoes from first steps to 6 years old. They are soft and pliable for new walkers and sturdy with support for older kids whilst always being comfortable. Even with every day wear the shoes are grown out of before they have worn out!
This style is one of our favourites (pave) and the moulded rubber sole at the toe is great for crawlers and to protect established walkers from scuffing the toes.
The fit is perfect and I have found the size guide accurate.
You get what you pay for and so much more!
When I purchased this high top shoes I was a little worried about.. what if it will be hard to wear it and take if off? It was only a worry. It is super easy to put my little one's feet in and out of the shoes. Material is super soft, light weight and she loves to walk in thos shoes!
Love milky products and these are no exception. Beautiful pjs, great quality and the best service from babybootique as always
