Please remember our shoes are hand printed by actual people, so there may be areas of print which are not perfect.
Our mini shoes are what all your crawlers, walkers and recliners have been waiting for. The perfect combination of barefoot and shoe, allowing foot to ground contact with a little natural protection. The suede sole provides a hardy non-slip surface, which moves with your baby's foot. You can use them as a rather natty pre-walker shoe to avoid cold toes on a buggy ride or as an indoor shoe/slipper. Rest assured, what ever you do with your mini shoes, they'll be a talking point.
Most of our Mini Shoes are made from 100% cotton and Suede. You'll also be happy to know that unlike most other brands these Baby Shoes have no exposed elastic, which means no nipping or chafing of skin. Our shoes are constructed to conceal the elastic, which has the added benefit of shoes that stay on. Oh, and because babies like to explore with their mouths, every style we produce has to pass a series of chemical compliance tests, just to check there are no nasties hiding. We test to make sure there is no Chrome, Lead, formaldehyde, phthalates, organotin compounds, Azo Dyes or disperse dyes. All our shoes are free from choke hazards, like sequins, beads and appliques.
Where to Wear:
We recommend Poco Nido Mini Shoes are worn indoors, they can also be used outdoors in dry weather occasionally. Although they are durable, they are still a soft sole and may not protect against broken glass or other debris found outside. Our baby shoes should not be used for crawling outside because of abrasion to the fabric upper on outdoor surfaces.
Caring For Your Poco Nido Mini Shoes:
We recommend spot clean/wipe only. Due to the nature of real leather the sole will stiffen and harden if you put them through the washing machine, the leather will also become less grippy on smooth floors. If you find this happens over time with use, or if the mini shoes were washed by accident you can try and buff up the suede sole with a stiff brush.
Available in other prints with matching items, or mismatching, if that's your bag. Sizes 3-6m, 6-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m, Eur 21, Eur 22.
Also available are Euro 23 & 24 size with an indoor Vegan Sole.
We don't make 0-3m, newborns don't need shoes.
All our full price mini shoes come packaged in a cardboard box which can be up cycled into a photo frame. Made by people in China at a socially audited factory.
Our Midi Shoes are the in between. In between the Mini Shoes and the Mighty Shoes. A leather alternative to the Mini Shoes for those of you who want something a little harder wearing. Our leather is chrome free and the shoes are free from choke hazards. Available in Eur 18-21.
Like the Mini shoes the Midi is barefoot friendly. It is crucial for children to spend as much time barefoot as possible to ensure good gait development and prevent pronation issues. Being barefoot improves all over leg/back/ankle muscle strength and allows for correct development of the foot bones, which do not harden until children reach 18.

Our 'Shorties' are a must have for all toddlers. The unique ankle height means your little ones can self dress and move with ease. No more crazy robot walking, kids can run in these boots. Pop a pair of these in your basket and they'll instantly become a firm favourite, some of our customers have been known to even wear them to bed.
These Ankle Wellingtons are made in China from 100% natural rubber and tested to check for anything that shouldn't be rubbing up against little Jonnie's skin. Rubber is GREAT, it's naturally warm and flexible. They won't crack or split or give you sweaty feet unlike cheap PVC boots.
Where to wear:
Anywhere apart from a stream. These are everyday wellies, wellies for taking siblings to school in. They are ankle height so best not to rely on them in a flood.
Caring for your Poco Nido Shorties:
Please don’t put your wellies in the washing machine…they are wipe clean only. These wellies are great for most things but we advise against wearing during scootering, due to the nature of rubber it will wear more quickly when dragged on the floor than PVC alternatives.
All our full price Ankle Wellies come packaged in a reusable heavy weight cotton bag.
They are available in infant sizes UK 4-10. Matching items are available.
Our Sneakers are for all your bigger little ones, perfect for the next steps. Your kids will rock these sneakers. All styles are easy for little fingers to put on, even the hi-top boot comes with a zip. Our favourite is the plimsol, a reminder of school P.E. lessons back in the 80s, but reinvented for the kids of today.
They're made in Vietnam from 100% cotton canvas with a vulcanised rubber sole.
Where to wear:
On your feet, outside, in a playground, kicking a ball, on a swing, up a tree.
Caring for your Poco Nido Sneakers:
They are canvas, so not waterproof. Please don't paddle in them. The coloured rubber toe bumper will mark and scuff, this is part of natural wear and tear.
All our full price sneakers come packaged in a rather fantastic reusable cardboard suitcase. We haven't slapped our logo all over it, so you can use it in your house with out looking like a brand slave. You're welcome.
