Founded in 1996 to make the best leather baby shoes available, shooshoos is a family run business based in Cape Town. They own their own factories and no shoes leave their warehouses unless they have been individually checked for both leather quality and construction.
Shooshoos also has its own design and testing facility where stringent tests are carried out on all materials and their assembly before a new product is offered to our customers. 95% of the shoe components are sourced in South Africa and every shoe is made in South Africa.
Shooshoos presently export to 21 countries, supply some of the world’s best baby groups, like Mothercare, and have won numerous Baby Parenting awards for best new product.
Both the soft soles baby shoes and the flexi soles are made in Shooshoos’s own factories by small teams of women from the local disadvantaged communities. Most of their employees have been part of the happy shooshoos team for over 10 years and take great pride in the beautiful baby shoos they produce. Their leathers are eco friendly and have been tested by the South African and UK Bureau of Standards to ensure they contain no harmful substances. They use a selection of the best bovine nappas, and suede leathers. All shooshoos products and packaging can be fully recycled and their carbon footprint is minimal.
