I spoke with Anna from SoapBoxShoes prior to placing my order and decided to order a size smaller based on her recommendation. Shoes were initially ordered on Sept 24. They arrived around Oct 24. They were still at least 1 size too large for my toddler. After exchanging messages, Anna was going to send us new shoes on Nov 1, but now (Nov 15) I still haven't received them and haven't received a response to my message on Nov 10. I hate leaving negative feedback on a private shop like this, so I'm leaving my feedback as "moderate" but I was "moderate". Update: 11/16/16: heard from Anna that they are going to send me another pair of shoes. Overall, my communication with them has been incredible and I think that under different circumstances, I would have had a much different experience with them!

These are seriously the best shoes for a toddler. The inside is lined with a squishy yoga mat like footbed with a cozy wool removable footbed on top. My kiddo loves running around in them and doesn't want to take them off when we get into the house. Thank you for building such great shoes!

We love these shoes!
Little Shoes That Stand For Big Ideas.
Soap Box Shoes was founded by two parents on a mission to rethink kids shoes from the ground up.
Our experience as parents and researchers inspired us to create a new style of kids play shoes: free from leather tanning by-products, toxic adhesives and inflexible soling materials. We wanted to rethink form & materials completely and bring a new shoe to life that's super functional for play, movement and family life, built from only the finest ecological materials. Our design, our combination of materials and our construction process are all completely original.
We've got a history of standing up for big ideas in the world of sustainable food systems, health education, social justice and childhood development. Now we're focusing our creative efforts on building kid's footwear that stand for big ideas all on their own!
Your purchases support our family business! We are so grateful for the chance to be a part of your little one's adventures! Thanks for visiting & we'd love to stay connected!
