Due to the stretchy nature of wool material, each size fits a wide range of little baby feet. This allows some room your baby grows. One layer of 100% merino wool is soft and light, more like a good sock for weight than a thick shoe. They are not sweaty polyester. Wool breathes and soothes. These little shoes are not only adorable, they are better than regular baby socks that are either kicked off easily or too-tight "compression socks" that leave ankle marks. Baby will enjoy the non-binding comfort of the soft stretchy wool with a gentle elastic section to keep them on little feet. These are for pre-walkers. They do not have vinyl or plastic non-skid bottoms. They are just soft and stretchy wool on the bottom. Made of Okeo Tex 100 certified merino wool. Handwash gently in a proper wool wash. Each pair of shoes is handcrafted and individually made in the USA.

These are adorable I’m very happy with my purchase and definitely worth the money. I bought two sizes since I was unsure which would fit best. I kept both and my little on wore them pretty much everyday. They stay on with no problems. I noticed they started marking his ankles so I started using the next size up but it appears they are tighter on his ankles. I’m trying to stretch out the elastic as I love how adorable they look on him. They do pill quite a bit initially but not too bad.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these booties. Finally found them with my 8th baby! (looks like one other reviewer and I are on the same path with finding them later on with other kids!) They never come off! Yet, they are so comfy for baby (not tight) and keep him happy and warm! They are thinner than normal baby socks, as it's just one layer of merino wool. I had two pairs, but honestly could have just had one and been happy. Just be careful changing diapers as they like to bring their feet up to their bum if you don't take them off for changes. I needed the mediums around 13lbs after the small size. It's also a must have for any future babes.
These little shoes are the best! I wish I'd had them for my other 7 babies... The wool is so soft. I am especially pleased that the elastic is not too tight for my chunky baby. My baby was 9 lbs at birth. By 6 weeks they were getting snug so I ordered the next size up. I love that I don't need to use ANY socks at all! There are a must for all babies imo. Would make a great shower gift too.
I LOVE these booties. I had a large fall baby and at 2.5mo/14 lbs I needed something to keep his feet warm in our chilly southern winter. Being our third, he gets worn a lot so the footie outfits and pants don’t work and socks get lost all the time. These are soft, comfortable, warm but breathable and I’ve never lost one yet! I have two sizes and am getting rid of all my tiny baby socks since these are all I need. Love, love, love!
These booties are well made, keep baby's feet very warm and stay on. The only issue is that the stitching inside the booties is large and the seams left impressions on his feet. I managed to fix the issue by turning the booties inside out.
