Just when Middle was outgrowing baby shoes, I first heard of Rileyroos. I was fortunate to get a pair on his feet, just barely, though. Because he grew out of them and was suddenly jumping through mud puddles.
So with Little suddenly on the move, it was perfect timing for Rileyroos to come out with their spring line. I was sent a sample pair of their sporty Dakota shoes, of course in pink (Sunset). I’ve always found Rileyroos to run a little small, which is perfect since Little, at 8 and a half months, is just getting into her 6-9 month clothing. So the fact that the size 6-12 month shoes actually stay on her feet is a miracle! (in most other lines she can still pull size 0-6 month shoes off.)
I also find the construction of Rileyroos to be top-notch. The rubber padding is perfect for future protection and padding when she’s learning to walk. And they provide excellent traction now that she’s army crawling and attempting to crawl–she keeps rubbing her toes on the ground–the design holds up extremely well and there hasn’t been much, if any, scuffing.
Check out their sale items, too. They have a great line of new spring shoes, which means Rileyroos is pushing a few cuties out the door.
