Winter is nothing but a cold, wet mess here in Maryland. The last thing I need is my son’s feet to get wet and have a poor sick baby on my hands. Everything I saw in the stores didn’t seem to fit his feet right nor keep his little toes warm. This is exactly why I was thrilled to learn about Stonz and their line of booties, and other winter gear and accessories. These are the perfect items for keeping your baby warm during these cold months!
As an active mom based on Canada’s wet and rugged West Coast, Lisa discovered that finding warm footwear for her young kids was near impossible. With her five-month old son in a backpack, Lisa resorted to wrapping scarves around her son’s legs to keep him warm. When she met another mom with a boot that looked a lot like a fleece-lined chalk bag (which was made-by-hand for her child), Lisa instantly knew that these booties could fill a need in the market. Together, they created some booties samples – made with a fleece lined inner and a coated nylon exterior. The booties were designed with stylish appliqués, soft soles for a custom fit, and toggles at both the calf and ankle so that they stayed on.
Check out the amazing features on Stonz Booties below!
Stonz generously sent me their Booties in Alien Blue. This design is available in the 0-2.5 Years sizes. Stonz does offer booties in sizes for newborn to 3 years!
One of my favorite aspects about these booties is how adjustable they are. My son could wear them barefoot, with socks, or even with his shoes on! The two adjustable toggles ensure that the booties stay put where they belong: on the feet! The toggles did a great job when my son tried to pull the booties off. The wide opening was perfect for when I just wanted to slip the booties over his shoes on especially wet days.
The booties are made of high quality water resistant nylon on the outside. This worked perfect on any of those inclement weather days. The inside fleece lining keeps little toes and feet warm. Plus the inside were so soft, that even if my son went without socks, the booties would not only keep his feet warm, but would be comfortable to wear too. The soft-skid resistant soles are wonderful addition to the booties. Even if you live in an area where there is not much snow, these shoes are great for the in the rain!
As for maintenance and cleaning, the booties are machine washable and dryable with like colors. It is best to turn the booties inside out and washed on your machine’s delicate setting. This helps protect the the appliqué.
