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.
