Son of Gustav Kids Slippers Review

Our toddler went through a growth spurt this summer, don't they all? Now everything seems to be too small on her, the pants are too short, the shoes are crowding the toes. Her slippers were getting so small, we needed some new ones pronto since our home is on a slab and the New England fall is getting chilly (not to mention our heat doesn't work). We received some adorable Swedish Moccasins from Son of Gustav for review. We picked the gender neutral Grey Circulations pattern (good for hiding all the dirt she gets into). Good quality slippers aren't easy to find, most stores only carry polyester ones that do not let the foot breathe. I don't like my toddler running around with sweaty feet in the winter, easy to get sick that way. 

These little kids slippers are absolutely adorable, not to mention comfortable. I wouldn't mind wearing a pair. My toddler is accident prone (they all are, right?) and I'm happy to report she hasn't slipped once in these after a week of wearing them. They are easy on and off, though my almost 3 year old has trouble with it (as she does with socks). But at least they are easy for me to put on her! What I love is that once they are on, they stay on. The sole is non-slip leather in a light gray color, the sock is 80% cotton, 15% Lycra, and 5% polyamide. It's super stretchy, so it is comfortable on any type of foot - chubby or skinny. I did get a size too big, but it is so subtle and fits so well that she doesn't trip over them, lots of room to grow into without being unsafe. The sizes available start at 6 months and go up to 4T. The baby shoes come in the following patterns on the sock part:

Not all Swedish footwear you can find is actually made in Sweden, but these are! As authentic as they come. They are hand sewn and machine washable. Though I probably would just wash them by hand because my old washing machine tends to ruin things. These slippers are priced at $27 each and I [secretly] wish they came in my size too! Oh, I also loved the packaging they came in - a neat little sturdy cardboard container that baby E now stores her trains in.

  1. These are so cute! I love little slippers like these. They are so great around the house in winter especially. And I love that these are actually made in Sweden and hand-sewn. Thanks for the review!

  2. Thanks for the review! These are exactly what I was looking for - something breathable to help keep my baby's feet warmer than regular socks. And it doesn't hurt that they're oh so hip :) We've ordered our pair already!

  3. These are beautiful slippers! I love that they're 80% cotton, and of course the non-slip leather (we have laminate floors and my son is always slipping on them!). Absolutely gorgeous patterns too.
