The Anchors Away soft leather shoes have a suede non-slip sole and are ideal for babies and toddlers. They have a nautical anchor design and are suitable for both boys as well as girls. The flexible suede sole is non-slip and so ideal for use indoors on wooden or laminate flooring. As with all Dotty Fish shoes they have been designed with developing feet in mind. The wide open toe area allows their feet to spread when cruising and standing. The soft, baby safe leather protects little feet while crawling and walking. They have an elasticated ankle trim which means they fit snugly and don’t keep coming off, so no more lost socks and shoes.

These lovely nautical shoes look lovely paired with denim and shorts and are ideal for spring and summer. They come delivered in an organza gift bag and fit through the letterbox.

Deciding which size shoe to get can be tricky. Babies don’t come in one size and they grow and develop at very different rates. At dotty fish this is at the heart of what we do, ensuring we create shoes suitable for little feet to grow and develop naturally. The best way to get the right fit is to measure your little ones foot which is not as difficult as you may think. Our step by step guide below shows you how to do this. Of course if you have access to a shoe gauge then that can be used just as easily.

How to measure step by step:

What you need:

  • A blank piece of paper
  • A pencil
  • A ruler
  • And of course your child!

Steps:

  1. Place the paper on a hard floor surface and tape it down so it doesn’t move.
  2. Ask your child to stand on the paper or gently place their foot on the paper.
  3. Mark off the back of the heel and the tip of the longest toe using your pencil. Make sure your child’s foot hasn’t moved between markings.
  4. As both feet may be slightly different sizes repeat this for the other foot.
  5. Measure the distance between the two marks. Make a note of this and then use the biggest foot measurement as the one you use when choosing which size to buy.
  6. On our individual size guides you will find your measurement in cm, use this to order the correct size for your little ones feet. We have included the shoe size for various regions for reference purposes only.

For example if your measurement is 10.3cm then you need to order size 6-12 months. If your measurement is 10.8cm then you are probably better off ordering size 12-18 months as your child’s foot is close to the ‘up to’ range and we all know how quickly their feet grow!

For babies that are not yet standing you can use a piece of paper stuck onto a book and then have a go at measuring their feet while they are asleep.

Please remember that width of the foot also plays a part. If your child has a particularly wide foot then a slightly bigger size may be better.

For Shimmy Shoes we realise that getting the right size is even more important and so we are happy to exchange any of our shoes for the correct size. (see product pages for our size guide especially for Shimmy Shoes)
