      Finding the best baby booties for your child


      A bootie is a short soft boot or sock-like garment used for warmth or protection. They are also very cute and made from natural and knitted fibres to keep your baby’s feet warm. Babies don’t necessarily need to wear shoes until they are learning how to walk, but a pair of baby booties will keep little feet warm and cozy at home and while outside the house.

      These slipper-sock hybrids will also get your little one used to having his or her feet covered and protected as an introduction to wearing shoes. Booties are both practical and cute, so it's a good idea to choose a product that meets the guidelines of Australian paediatric doctors to ensure your baby boy or baby girl is happy, healthy and flourishing. At Metro Baby, you can have confidence in your purchase.


      Best baby booties for newborns and active kids

      Tiny feet grow fast and all beginner walkers have to start somewhere, even before they can stand. Here are a few baby bootie and footwear suggestions for your growing baby.

      • Newborn - From birth to three months your baby will be fully dependent on you. Although they won't require shoes, it's a good idea for your baby to wear booties when outdoors and for braving the cold. Allow your little one to go barefoot also when it is warm and safe to strengthen their feet and ankles.
      • Pre-walkers - Your little one will quickly develop strength in legs, feet and toes during the transition from shuffling and crawling to standing. At this time, your baby will also benefit from being barefoot at times to get the hang of balancing upright. In winter and on cold floors, flexible soft-soled bootie/shoe hybrids are baby footwear options that offer protection and support.
      • Walking - By now, it's time to get your little one some baby socks and baby shoes. High-quality breathable leather or natural material shoes are the best option. There's nothing cuter than baby clothes and baby shoes for tiny feet.

      Tips to make sure your baby booties fit correctly

      • Fit: Exact bootie fit for a baby who isn't at the walking stage isn't essential, particularly as little feet grow fast. However, your baby's booties shouldn't be tight or constricting, so it's best to purchase a pair with a little wiggle room.
      • Size: A baby bootie size chart will roughly correspond to the age of your baby. A size 3 bootie, for example, will fit most 3-month-old feet.
      • Soft soles: The best baby booties, available from Metro Baby, are made from natural organic cotton and merino wool. Soft fabrics allow little feet and toes to bend and flex comfortably.
      • Secure closures: Keeping socks securely on your baby's feet can be a challenge. Choose booties with fold-over cuffs and adjustable ties for a secure and comfortable fit.
