10 Best Baby Shoes UK 2022 | Clarks, Adidas and More

When buying your child's first pair of shoes, you want them to look good, be supportive and make sure your little one feels comfortable wearing them. Although shoes in their early years are mainly ornamental, it is crucial that children get used to wearing them as they are an item of clothing they will have to wear for the rest of their lives. 


The choice of styles and materials is enormous, with big sportswear and adult shoe brands like Clarks and Kickers making their own ranges for both crawling babies and new walkers. Our top picks from Amazon and John Lewis, from great brands like adidas and Kickers, will allow your little boy or girl to be at the height of fashion whilst also being at the height of comfort!

How to Choose Baby Shoes in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Choose Shoes or Boots Depending on the Weather and Season
  2. Seek Out Fastenings That Are Easy to Use Like Velcro
  3. Look for a Soft but Durable Material

1. Choose Trainers and Boots to Protect Your Baby's Feet in Cold Weather, but Opt For Sandals for Warmer Weather

1. Choose Trainers and Boots to Protect Your Baby's Feet in Cold Weather, but Opt For Sandals for Warmer Weather

As long as the shoes are not uncomfortable for them to wear, your baby probably won't mind too much about what you put on their feet. This doesn't mean that you can't have some fun choosing a cute style of shoe for those early years. 


The range of styles is enormous, with lots of adult shoe styles now coming in miniature. Whether you're looking for a simple slip-on baby shoe that is just a step up from a sock, a trainer, or even a smart boot, you will be able to find what you're looking for.

2. Seek Out Fastenings That Are Easier to Use Like Velcro and Elasticated Ankles

2. Seek Out Fastenings That Are Easier to Use Like Velcro and Elasticated Ankles

It is unlikely that babies will be putting on their own shoes, so it matters less whether they will be able to use the shoe's fastening method. What does matter, however, is that the fastening on the shoe is easy for you to use


You might prefer the look of laces and the reassurance that they'll stay put, but bear in mind that these are going to be harder to put on a – potentially kicking and screaming – baby. Shoes that have elasticated heels and Velcro straps make this task much easier.


Slip off those baby shoes so your child can have some fun on a baby play mat!

3. Look for a Soft but Durable Material Like Leather or Synthetic Textile

3. Look for a Soft but Durable Material Like Leather or Synthetic Textile

There is no one material that is used across the board in baby shoes. Leather is a popular choice, often in conjunction with different synthetic textiles. Leather in adult shoes is very tough and durable, but for baby shoes, soft leather is often used to allow for maximum comfort


As far as the soles of baby shoes go, a similarly wide range of materials is used. Rubber is a popular choice for more solid, sturdy options. Suede and softer materials can also be used, often on slip-on shoe designs, as they still prevent slipping but are more comfortable to wear.
