Original Non-Slip Soles
These are the soles that started Little Love Bug Company! I was tired of not having a quality moccasin option for my Littles that didn’t shred or get holes in them on the first day of use. And WHAT is with those little dots on the bottom of some of them… GRIP?!
In 2017 I introduced my non-slip soft sole moccasins. These bottoms are in line with minimal footwear designs. Made of a soft suede leather and rubber grips – They’re soft, light, flexible and have a box toe (so your little’s toes can properly grow and not get squished!).
Can they be worn outside? You bet!
Are they great for non-walkers just learning to stand – Absolutely!
Can your active toddler rock them? Yes! It’s what my littles wore as babies and toddlers until they were about 2 and a half.
Weatherproof Soft Soles
Made of a thin rubber layer these soles are super light, flexible, and … Well… Weatherproof! I introduced these soles in the Fall of 2018 and Mom’s fell in love. Living in Oregon where it rains a lot – I wanted just a tad more assurance that my kids could romp around in the puddles without fear their little feet were getting wet. True to minimalist shoes – These moccs too are boxed toes so there’s no crunching or restricting of proper bone growth of those cute little toes!
Big Kid Soles
These soles are much more durable for the avid walker and perfect for Little Love Bugs that have outgrown the ability to stay in my soft sole moccasins.
New Big Kid Minimalist Sole
I was on the hunt for soles that would align with my desire for minimalist soles... And I found them. My 6 year old has tested them out for months now and loves them. I'm slightly obsessed. They're flexible, light, non-slip, and durable. They can fold in half as you can see, but here's a picture of the above shoe not folded (no, these sparkly rose gold are not available (yet), my 6 year old got to build her own shoe, so of course glitter galore):
Some people don't care whether or not the soles are minimalist for their kiddos and that's ok. But in order to better align with my mission... I will eventually be transferring all of my big kid soles to my new minimalist sourced soles in sizes 6-10. I'm a problem solver - This has solved a problem I felt I faced.
