Zooties animal baby booties are adorable, if you couldn’t tell. Even more adorable? They have a great story that involves providing work, medical assistance, and education to women in Kyrgyzstan, who hand-craft each pair from sheep wool. And we’re not lion!
No matter which critter you select for a toe-tally awesome pair of booties, you’ll know that each pair of sweet critter feet is handmade in small batches, with the wool dyed, spun, felted, and stitched by a women-run collective. Zooties fit babies up to one year old and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. That’s a better deal than you’ll get with real giraffes.
These adorable booties represent just one part of the collection, which spans all the continents and includes parrots, moose, koalas, and more. As you can probably tell, they’re more a cute gift for little ones than the right kind of shoe for new walkers, so put them on the keepsake shelf as soon as your baby is zoo-ming around.
