GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
Do you see those super cute leather baby shoes in my sidebar? They are genuine Bugaloo Baby Shoes. Bugaloo was started by Heidi Wells, a graphic designer. And let me tell you the shoes show her talent in designing! They sport whimsical animals in colorful soft leather. My personal favorite for girls are the Gabrielle. I have a daughter that LOVES giraffes so these shoes remind me of her.
I adore the George style for boys. My own little
monkey boy would love running around the house in these.
When Special Dark was born I decided to try out leather shoes for him. At first they kept his socks from falling off but as he grew and progressed into the crawling and walking stages the shoes protected his little feet while allowing them room to grow. Leather shoes are recommended over restrictive hard sole shoes by medical experts because they allow a baby’s foot to grow properly. Babies are also able to balance better using the muscles of their own feet instead of trying to balance with rigid soles that do not flex or move like leather shoes do.
Now I know you’ve seen leather shoes all over the internet. Have you checked out the prices for them? Pretty outrageous, don’t you think, to pay anywhere from $25 – $40 for a pair of baby shoes. Guess what? Bugaloo shoes are only $15. Did you hear that? $15!!!!! Heidi makes them all herself thus cutting out the cost of the middleman. Even better than the cuteness or price of her shoes is Heidi’s philosophy that if one is blessed one should contribute in anyway possible to help bless the life of another. 5% of every purchase goes towards the International Justice Mission, a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. A company that gives back to help others in need is a company I’d love to do business with.
Spreading her generosity around even more, Heidi has offered to give one lucky person their choice of Bugaloo shoes in any size. To enter visit Bugaloo, look at the various styles of shoes, then come back here and leave a comment saying which one catches your eye.
