PLAYGROUND TO PARTY

A first-time mom came up with the idea for Baubles + Soles after she became frustrated by the need to buy multiple pairs of shoes for her daughter even though her daughter would outgrow them more quickly than she could wear them. The lightbulb moment came when she thought: "What if I could invent one shoe that could be worn from playground to party and styled with every single outfit in the wardrobe?"

Children’s feet grow so quickly that they often outgrow their shoes before they can wear them. The problem is further exacerbated when you have to buy multiple shoes to go with different outfits and occasions. When we had our first daughter, we became so frustrated by the problem that we had to find a solution. Together as a family, we spent nearly 2 years designing, engineering and testing a push-and-twist lock mechanism to enable us to do this. What’s more, the same lock is affixed to all of our shoes which means every bauble can be reused with successive shoe sizes and styles. Modern parenting is also made easier with quality handcrafted shoes that are made in America, machine washable, slip-resistant and fully recyclable.

BARING OUR SOLE

We designed the shoes with our daughter in mind - so we knew we had to create the best possible pair. The unique bio-based material is 45% soy by weight and 100% vegan.

Made in USA

According to the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America, 99.9% of children’s shoes sold in the US are imported. Our shoes travel 93% less than the average imported shoes. Baubles + Soles is proud to be a part of the 0.01%

Slip-Resistant

Designed for the growing feet, our slip-resistant shoes provide much-needed support to the early walker. Our soles are lightweight, flexible and extremely comfortable. The one-piece construction also means no toxic glue, no buttons, no Velcro and no buckles to fall apart and trip our little ones.

Machine Washable

We recognize that parents have busy lives, juggling life, work and kids. Our goal is to make the lives of modern parents as easy as possible. Each of our shoes are made with a strong, unique bio-based plastic compound that is machine washable and dishwasher safe. 

EARTH + ANIMAL FRIENDLY

Our Shoes are Recyclable

The majority of shoes sold in America are not recyclable, and most that claim to be are really just shoe redistribution programs. At Baubles + Soles, we believe in closed-loop recycling to reduce the use of virgin material and to keep old shoes from becoming environmental waste.

100% vegan-friendly, our entire footwear line contains no animal skins or byproducts, and our shoes are not tested on animals. Most shoes that contain animal by-products. such as leather, are nearly impossible to recycle and end up polluting our landfills for hundreds of years.

ABOUT OUR BAUBLES

We teamed up with a premier Canadian firm, Voth Engineering, to design a push-and-twist lock that is secure, functional and easy to use. The baubles easily attach with an insert-push-and-twist mechanism and can withstand a 30lbs. pull-force.

A "bauble" means a trinket or treasure

By changing out our shoes with different baubles, you can change the entire look of the shoe and style with many different outfits. Some baubles are educational (baby's first animals), while others have a comedic slant. Buy a handful of baubles or collect them all!

CHARITY

SOLE GIVING

Our founders have spent the last decade advocating to protect and educate street-working children and their families. We donate 20% of profits to support Senhoa Foundation in their efforts to protect those most at risk of exploitation.
