ShuPeas Infant Shoes - A Review and Giveaway


We had the usual rush this morning in an effort to get off to school on time. There's always a million plus one things to do right at that moment when we are about to pass through the front door en route to the car. Eternally frustrating!
One of today's little misfortunes was losing Celeste's leather baby shoes. Today is wet and cold and even though she is walking nowhere in the outdoors this morning, it just seemed wrong for her to go barefoot. Her regular shoes have mysteriously vanished and are nowhere to be seen. I know they will turn up, but in the meantime, there was no better opportunity than now, to get cracking on that big box of goodies beneath my desk scheduled for up and coming reviews and giveaways, knowing I would get lucky!

Hello ShuPeas! My saviour on this characteristically crazy morning!


Here's why I already love ShuPeas before I even put them on Celeste's feet to try (and it's not just because they were already there at a crucial moment either!) :

ShuPeas are an infant shoe designed to cover 4 complete size ranges in the one shoe. They expand and adjust to your baby's size requirements in two whole ways. Lengthwise they have an adjustable tab which stretches to shorten or extend the shoe as baby's feet grow. Width-wise, they open and close via secure Velcro tab closures, meaning you can effectively make the shoe snuggly fit your ever-growing bubba's foot no matter what their age!


Baby's single pair of shoes can be worn as early as day one (if you're really keen on footwear, young), and up to 18 months (or beyond if your baby has little footsies like my Celeste).





Celeste gets down and dirty with the dust-bunnies, while trying to locate her other pair of shoes

What a brilliant design! I cannot tell you how many shoes we have bought our babies and had so little or no wear from, at all. Often we have purchased shoes and forgotten to use them, only to find that they no longer fit when we finally get around to trying them. With each pair of quality infant shoes costing anywhere up to $100, that's a lot of cash wasted! I am very picky when it comes to choosing infant shoes too. With little growing bones, this is something that is so important. Choosing first footwear shouldn't ever be done 'on the cheap.'


ShuPeas are a quality shoe and these little pink bunny lovelies are sewn in a soft, fine leather. Leather has the added ability to stretch and breathe as well as provide adequate protection. Perfect for little feet on the go and great protection from injury and toddler mischief.


The design of these shoes ensures they are always easy to put onto a wriggly baby foot. The shoe opens right up with no fiddly bits to make sliding it on or off, difficult. Thankfully, Celeste really loves shoes (like her Mummy), and is always willing to offer a foot for decorating. (Clothing is an entirely different situation however.) There is no part of these shoes that are not smooth and comfortable to touch, and are therefore kind on baby's skin. They are beautifully soft-soled too which allows the natural expansion of baby's foot to occur when standing, making them approved by Paediatricians and Podiatrists.

There are a great set of ShuPeas designs available at LittleM for little boys and girls in both leather and vegan options. ShuPeas are available to purchase on the LittleM website for a very reasonable $49.95. (Lots of other great products too so do check them out.) These would make a great gift for a new Mum as they are a shoe which will go the distance and at $49.95 for the equivalent of four pairs of shoes, they are great value too. I am really impressed with these shoes. For a more detailed look into how the shoes operate, definitely visit their website.

  5. I've been contemplating these shoes for a while, I just wish they came in a few more design options. Mind you pink would more than likely go with ALL of her outfits so I'm not sure why I'm even concerned with that :)
    Michelle is awesome isn't she, such a nice lady to work with.

  9. Oh arent they gorgeous! They look so soft and i like how they can be adjusted. What a great find. Unfortunately my little one would now be out of them :( but i'll keep them in mind if i ever need a gift.

  10. Oh gosh these are absolutely gorgeous. They look so soft and comfortable, yet durable. My little Viv turned 1 this week just gone and I bought her a little pair of moccasin booties from Pumpkin Patch. So far she's not really a fan of them. I'm thinking these ShuPeas might just be the winning ticket as they look so comfy and it will be easier to transition little Viv to wearing shoes.

  15. I do so get frustrated every morning with the mystery disappearance of shoes. Apparently they get put away on the shoe shelf properly each afternoon, and sometime overnight they just disappear!

  16. They are just WAY too cute. And what an absolutely fab idea to have them grow with the foot. I wish I knew about these when Elliott was little!

  18. This would be perfect for my 7 month old princess who has just started to pull herself to stand. It will be really nice for her to have her own pair of shoes to grow with her rather than just getting hand me downs from her older sister. These are soooo cute!

  20. These are just gorgeous and would be perfect for my 4 month old little lady. It's getting colder here in Victoria so they would keep her feet lovely and warm and cosy while also looking like the most stylish bub on the block! :-)
