The most common, wearable styles in personalized baby shoes that are found in the market at the time of this article are of the soft soled leather variety. Personalized leather baby shoes of every style, color and theme are being shown and admired at the park and baby showers all over.
Why have we not seen this trend before now? After all we have been engraving and monogramming baby's gifts for years. The answer is found in the material used in the shoes' construction. Stiff leather and thick soles were once thought to be best for babies.
Now we know that soft leather or fabric crib shoes are much better for baby's developing feet. An added benefit is that they are also easier to work with when adding that extra decorative touch that sets them apart from the rest of the gifts at the baby shower.
HOW TO PERSONALIZE LEATHER BABY SHOES
You can personalize these little shoes in a variety of ways using either stitching or stamping. Consider decorating the soles of the baby’s shoes with his or her name, date of birth or a short, personal message.
A clever way to turn a plain pair of soft soled crib shoes into something unique and special is to have baby’s name or initials embroidered across the toe or lengthwise down the sole of the shoe. Another trendy thing to do is to present personalized baby shoes that have been decorated in the same theme or color scheme as the baby’s room. A matching pair of personalized baby shoes, a personalized baby diaper bag, a personalized baby onesies, a personalized baby blanket or bib set makes a showy yet inexpensive gift and if it complements the nursery decor, that’s even better!
There are special vendors that will fill your order for personalized baby shoes giving you a large selection of colors to pick from as well as many choices in fonts for the lettering and thread color. All you have to do is spell baby’s name correctly and it’s all but guaranteed that your gift will be a favorite! Oh, and don’t lose the name of the store where you bought the personalized crib shoes or had them monogrammed because when your friend’s baby outgrows them, chances are that she will want to order another pair in a bigger size.
