This beautifully hand crafted leather shoe for babies and toddlers provides ideal protection, enough freedom of movement and healthy development for the childs soft foot. The comfortable and vegetably tanned Nappa leather is especially breathable and skin-friendly.

These exquisitely crafted shoes are made from real, natural leather that meets IVN Natural Leather standards.  Real leather conforms optimally to feet and is uncoated and breathable.  

These soft-soled shoes are designed to fit like a second skin that encloses your child's foot, providing warmth and protection.  This type of shoe is the best alternative to healthy barefoot walking and is excellent for both pre-walkers and toddlers alike.  As in barefoot walking, the musculature is trained and strengthened in a variety of ways, and strong musculature is important for developing healthy and robust feet.

Please note that soles made from 100% natural leather may become slippery on hard surfaces, especially if they get wet or dirty.  A hard brush can help the soles become raw again.   These shoes are intended for indoor use. 

Children's feet are not like small adult feet- instead, they consist primarily of cartilage and are therefore much softer and more flexible.  Even the smallest amount of pressure, which can be triggered by ill-fitting or too hard shoes, or too little room for movement, can affect the development of a child's feet.  Pololo shoes are very soft and provide little feet with just the freedom of movement they need for healthy development. 

The European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) has labelled all Pololo shoes as hypoallergenic.  In addition, Pololo regularly commissions tests on their shoes by independent laboratories meeting the highest standards (IVN Natural Leather, REACH and recommendations by the BfR) for possible harmful substances.    Leather dyestuffs are free of AOX and heavy metals and comply with EU regulations.

To find the right size, please see the size chart below. 

Handmade in Germany. 

Materials: 100% natural leather (vegetable tanned, soft, and chrome free)

About Pololo:  

Pololo shoes are based on four principles:  excellent handicraft, charming design, production in Germany, and social & ecological accountability.  Each model is a distinct piece of craftsmanship.  Leather, one of the world’s oldest textile materials, is tanned animal skin – a natural product! It gives us breathable, steam-permeable and skin-friendly protection from the cold, from moisture and from foot injuries.

POLOLOS retain these natural qualities. Each model is a piece of handwork from Pololo's workshop in Bavaria. Only renewable vegetable materials are used for the tanning of the leather and lambskin used, such as the Valonea oak or the Tara fruit. 

POLOLO is an active member of the Internationaler Verband für Naturtextilien (IVN).  The company consistently follows the exacting guidelines of the IVN certificate for natural leather (“Naturleder”) that applies the strictest of requirements concerning contaminants content and manufacturing conditions, and prohibits the use of chrome-tanned leather. POLOLO only works with partners and suppliers who fulfill these obligations.  Pololo shoes are compostable, and unnecessary packaging is avoided.  

Sizing:   Length in cm in the size chart below is based on the measurement of your child's foot, from heel to toe.  An easy way to measure your child's foot is to have your child stand flat on a piece of paper and mark the measurements from heel to the end of the biggest toe.   Use the foot measurement in cm to find the corresponding European (French) shoe size (there is usually no need to add extra room or size up, as the corresponding shoe size itself already accommodates a bit of extra room).

Be careful!

I want to make you aware of a serious problem with these shoes. I have bought 2 pairs of these shoes for my grandson. When they became slick on the bottom the first time, I assumed it was because they were worn. A second pair was purchased because my daughter is particular about materials and she was unable to find anything else she liked. The second pair is only a few months old and the same problem is happening again. My grandson fell at a store and his shoes have to be taken off on my hardwood floors or he would be falling continuously. I believe shoes, especially for toddlers should never be so slick that they are potentially dangerous to wear. I think people should be warned about the issue. I see this as a serious problem that could easily result in a child being hurt.

My boy loves these

Great quality, very soft leather and very good finish. And in addition, my little boy loves these - he is looking forward to getting home so that he can wear them.
