When I found out I was going to feature Jemos Eco-Friendly Footwear on my blog I was very excited. Not only do they have super cute shoes but they are also eco-friendly. I have their page on my favorites because I know I will keep visiting them all the time.
Jemos Eco-Friendly Footwear was founded back in 2008 as the original eco-friendly shoe line exclusively for infants and toddlers. One of my favorite facts about their company is that their footwear is designed by them and they are involved in the entire shoe making process, they approve the leather samples and all of their shoes undergo very rigorous testing procedures to ensure safety and toxin free products.
All of their shoes come in a 100% recyclable gift box that also features low printing inks. In the box I also received an adorable little Jemo the Giraffe hand-puppet that my son loved. Their shoes are made using high quality remnant leather pieces that are sourced from furniture manufacturers. They are all handmade in small orders as well saving the energy that is required to power complicated machinery. I really love featuring green companies!
My little one absolutely loved the pair of shoes we received for review. I noticed right away how soft the inner shoe was and that they had breathable linings. The ankles were also extra padded for comfort. I really liked the toe box shape and I later found out that it is made to allow extra wiggle space for the toes to keep them growing healthy. I also liked the velcro closure.
We got the size 6-12 months and they fit just right with no extra room at 8 months. Next time I would order the next size up to ensure he will get to wear them for a longer period of time. Other than that the shoes are adorable and I absolutely recommend them to all of my eco-friendly readers.
Win it: Jemos Eco-Friendly Footwear has generously offered one of my lucky readers anywhere in the world a chance to win a pair of their own Jemos Eco-Friendly Shoes.
