The Latest in Stylish Robeez Baby Shoes
Only another mom can understand the feeling that I had when I tried Robeez baby shoes for the first time. The wonderful selection of colors and themes was a dream come true. You see, with my first daughter I was all about coordinating her outfits and gear to perfection (or to the point of obsession depending on who in my family you are speaking with).
ROBEEZ BABY SHOES PROS and CONS
As an example, her nursery was decorated with ladybugs and a lot of her gear and clothing were in the same theme because I got lots of ladybug gifts at my baby shower. I had plenty of infants’ crib socks that matched well but nothing that set the woods on fire like the Robeez baby shoes with ladybugs appliqued on the toes. The craftsmanship was top quality and the shoes’ themes and colors were nothing short of divine.
The main drawback and one that's mentioned often in baby shoe reviews was that cheap Robeez baby shoes are for the most part, nonexistent. Compared to other infant crib shoes they can be pretty expensive especially when you want a pair to match every outfit like me. To save some money, I thought I’d check out the copycats but quickly backtracked.
It is so tempting to try fakes when you see them for sale at less than $1! But after taking a look at the look alikes in the discount stores, I realized that Robeez knockoffs were not a good idea for several reasons. In comparison, the stitching on the knockoffs was not neat. Plus, with all the toxic chemical scares, I worry about whether the materials are baby safe and non-toxic. The best approach for finding cheap Robeez baby shoes for my babies was to shop seasonal sales and to shop auctions online hoping for a pair with minimal wear at a discount and free shipping when I could find it.
All my girls have enjoyed at least a few pair of Robeez but as time went on, I did find some other brands with styles that I liked, namely Bobux. A lot of moms spend time making comparisons, but my findings were that there were a few positives (and negatives) associated with each brand that I tried, even Robeez. I found that the elastic around the ankles was too tight and left marks on my chubby baby girl and had to find not only another brand but another style that was not so fitted around that part of her foot.
