Fall is upon us and for most kids that means cuddly sweaters and clunky snow boots. For toddlers, it can mark the end of summer’s bare feet and the start of shoes that flip off, socks that slide off and/or expensive shoes that will likely never touch the ground.

We discovered the Minnetonka Front Strap Booties ($18.95) during a trip to Santa Fe, and have been ordering them ever since—they’re adorable, well made and so easy to put on. The tiny tribal Infant Back Flap Booties ($22.95) have a Velcro closure in the back that make them easy to get into—and hard to shake off. The Infant Driving Mocs ($20.95) are supple, but sturdy for tiny feet and the Sheepskin Slippers ($20.95) keep toes toasty on chilly strolls.

The booties and slippers are available in fun and practical colors, are gentle on tiny feet and strong enough to walk outside in if the need arises.
