What are baby shoes?

Babies shoes have existed for a very long time. In the past, these were semi-dress style shoes that little girls wore to go to school, boarding school, weddings, etc.

These childlike shoes looked a bit like ballerinas with their round toe, ankle straps and patent leather.

The fashion of the time wanted them to be worn flat with tights or large high socks and skirts.

With the retro trend that has invaded the catwalks this year, babies have made a comeback in the world of footwear thanks to fashion designers.

With their woman-child look, the baby shoes with leather heels or flat feet bring a lot of style to an outfit when worn with trendy fashion pieces.

In a preppy look with a blouse, neo-bourgeois with a tweed blazer and straight pants or in a sixties version with a babydoll dress , the baby shoe has become a real fashion accessory for contemporary and trendy looks.
