I had the opportunity to review the Taylor in Grasshopper Green from Rileyroos! These are seriously some of the cutest little shoes for boys!
Rileyroos was started after the birth of the founders daughter, Riley. They saw a need for shoes that were friendly to growing and developing little feet. They are inspired by a combination of European fashion trends and American spirit and casualness.
Rileyroos are designed to imitate barefoot walking while protecting little feet. They are lightweight, flexible and have good traction. The sole is designed to curl up around the child's toes to provide leverage as they begin to crawl.
Did I mention how cute these shoes are! They are like little stylish sneakers! They are very well made with leather and bright green mesh on the top for breath ability. And a suede sole with rubber grippers on the bottom. No detail has been left out, from the chunky white stitching, to the elastic heel for a better fit and the cute little ribbon Velcro closure. They are super lightweight and the insides are just super soft comfortable leather.
I requested a size 18-24 months for Little Brother. This is the largest size the Rileyroos go up to. Little Brother is just now 20 months old. On the Rileyroos sizing chart it says the 18-24 months is comparable to a US/Can Shoe size of 6.5-7. Little Brother wears a size 6 shoe comfortably and these are a bit too tight on him. I think they may run about one size small. So just keep this in mind when you are ordering, you might want to order a size up, especially if you want some growing room.
I wish they made bigger sizes as these are so stylish, cute and so well made. I found Rileyroos just a size too late darn it! But I have no doubt they will keep your little ones on their toes and feet comfortable for new little walkers.
Here are a few of my other favorites from Rileyroos!
Make sure to keep up to date with Rileyroos on Facebook! I know they have new Fall/Winter styles coming out late November. I can't wait to see them! And just maybe, fingers crossed there will be bigger sizes too!
