Taking that first step is like man’s first walk on the moon to a toddler. A momentous occasion filled with joy and pride, except this time there’s one significant difference – gravity. It is the enemy for youngsters and falls are inevitable, but it doesn’t stop our determined little tots from getting up and trying all over again and it’s always a whole lot of fun. So how do we keep it that way? To ensure the early walking stages are more fun than fall, Cheeky Little Soles have released an inspirational range of fun-focused footwear with an emphasis on child safety.
The new collection combines quality, safety, and frivolity for boys and girls with special non-slip soft-soled sandal designs in a new selection of limited-edition fabric designs. The fun continues with the new rubber-soled sandal `Walkers’ which promises to keep the good times rolling for toddlers already up on two feet.Cheeky Little Soles founder, Lisa Koba kicked off the brand in 2005 when she couldn’t find a shoe that delivered style and functionality to help her 6-month old from slipping on their floorboards. Months of research, designing and sourcing later, Koba finally delivered her first range of Cheeky Little Soles baby shoes and the response has been overwhelming. “Our aim this season was to keep the designs fun, and the colours neutral and warm,” Lisa explains. “What we’ve ended up with is one of our most stylish collections yet – and I am thrilled!”
Today the brand is recognised as one of Australia’s favourite footwear and accessories range specifically tailored for infants and toddlers and can be found throughout the world. Even the Danish Royal twins, Princess Josefine and Prince Vincent of Princess Mary recently received Cheeky Little Soles footwear as a christening gift from an Australian Aunt. Every shoe is carefully designed to ensure tiny toes enjoy flexibility, protection and plenty of wiggle room to grow, grip and develop strength.
