Dotty Fish shoes are made from the softest baby safe leather and are gentle on delicate little feet whilst the lightweight flexible design provides protection when crawling, cruising and walking.

They have a non-slip suede sole which allows children to feel the floor and helps them find their balance when they are taking those first few steps.  A wide toe area allows the foot to spread out when standing and ensures that little feet can move and develop without restrictions. The big bonus for all parents is that they are really easy to put on and they stay on!
