Baby Needs A New Pair of Shoes (and Socks)

***WINNER PICKED 5/12 WITH RANDOM.ORG*** ***CONGRATULATIONS, EMILIE (non-blogger)!!!***
her comment: I love the navy hopper shoes, too for my little boy. Thanks for the contest.



Buskins is a venerable old cobbler of soft-soled baby shoes, having been in business for more than two decades. In 2007, they gained new ownership and have been undergoing some stylistic changes, including the birth of a sibling company, Jazzy Toes.



Buskins differ from other soft-soled shoe brands because they feature a Velcro strap closure instead of elastic on the ankles, which can pinch and cut off circulation. They are handmade in Australia and have tons of cute styles. I am particularly enamored of the gold metallic Buskins Cindy, but sadly, Jasper is too macho to wear them:

The Buskins Navy Hopper shoes are more his speed, but I managed to request the wrong size, so maybe they could be yours… see the end of the post for more on that.

Jazzy Toes socks are unbelievably adorable. It is really hard to pick a favorite style (there are six for each gender), so they graciously sent us a Boys Variety Original sampler. Our set is a 12-24 month toddler size, but the baby size set would be amazing for a shower gift… the packaging was designed to be mailed as-is, so it would be a total no brainer to drop in the mail, too.


I have gotten so many compliments whenever Jasper has worn his Jazzy Toes! The only problem is that you might have to cover them up with shoes…



To enter and win a pair of Buskins Navy Hopper shoes in SIZE 4 ONLY (approximately 12-15 months, see sizing info), please comment on this post with your favorite style from Buskins or Jazzy Toes. ***These shoes have been tried on and the packaging has been discarded, but the condition is like new.***

Entries will be accepted through May 11th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US/Canada readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.

Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win! Or, you may choose to check for your nickname at Prizey.Fetch, a new site that compiles winners in one convenient place:

  110. Cool shoes! I have been thinking I need to get some for my baby before we leave. I love your son's name! My baby is 1 month younger than yours.
    But back to the topic at hand, I like the little Bushkins with the star on them, and I love the Jazzy Toes. The designer is so right...they don't make a lot of cute baby boy stuff! I love the Wingtips, but I have actually considered ordering the variety pack before.
    It's better if you win it!
