All our soft soled leather baby shoes are made from genuine leather and like all leather products should never be put in the washing machine! We suggest spot cleaning them with a damp sponge or even a baby wipe. You can brush the suede soles with a suede brush which will get rid of any surface dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals on any of our leather shoes.

All our soft soled leather baby shoes are delivered in an organza bag with a ribbon tie. They usually fit through the letter box and make an ideal gift. Our Shimmy Shoe range with rubber soles are delivered in a shoe box with a ribbon handle, or a reusable organza bag. All Dotty Fish products are shipped within the UK and Europe using a biodegradable paper mailing bag with our signature Dotty Fish Doodle on it.
All Dotty Fish shoes are podiatry tested and approved. We have long believed in the benefits of soft soled shoes being the best choice in footwear, especially for those first few pairs of shoes in the early years. We worked with The London Podiatry Centre looking at the science behind our philosophy. They used a sophisticated 8-camera Vicon system as well as a Tekscan pressure mat to determine how a toddler walks with our shoes on and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. Natural normal foot function was not affected and in many instances gait and balance improved when wearing the soft soled leather shoes. You can find out more on our podiatry page.
