First shoes

Do you recall, my dear friend, those inaugural shoes that adorned your tender feet in the early days of your existence? Ah, those remarkable companions with which you traversed the world around you! Alas, we oftentimes grow with such haste in those formative years that the memory of such trivialities tends to elude us. Yet, fear not, for our parents bear witness to those initial strides, forever etched in their hearts and minds.

Baby shoes, uniquely sized, base on a 6 month old toddler.

I start with a 5mm leather thickness for the shoe sole which is then covered with velvet linen.

Easy to put on, perfect for indoor events or  weddings.

During this leap into the unknown and our resilience after falling, we tried again, and again until we made it. 

This is to commemorate your first success in life, and how you overcame something almost impossible for you at this age. Remember this, we were so small and walking was a huge effort but we conquered it and now it is second nature.

My parents went overboard as I was a late walker, my first pair of Nike were cast in gold after using them! 

Now the shoes (shared between the family) rest in their place of honour on the bookshelf.
