If you have a toddler who acts like their shoes are lined with razor blades or venomous serpents, consider trying on a pair of these delights. They are called Padraigs and they’re little knitted slippers with a tough leather sole, lined with sheepskin.

Olive had them when she was younger, and received this pair for her birthday from Adam’s twin sister. They are currently the best bet for shoes that will go on without a fight! They wouldn’t be great in rain or snow, but for this gorgeous fall weather they are sublime.

Just thought I’d share for anyone else wanting to avoid the shoe-wars!

(P.S. They come in adult sizes. So far I have managed to restrain myself. But for how long?!)

    My daughter had a pair of these last winter, before she was a walker. I was wondering how they’d stand up if she WAS walking at the time. They’re alright for outdoor use – provided there’s no snow/rain?

      We have only had them a week or so, but I think they would hold up fine – and it must feel like heaven for their feet!

    Padraigs are the BEST! We love ours. They’re my go-to baby gift 🙂

    My husband bought me a pair for my birthday last year. I love them but I think he’s the real winner. He no longer gets my fridgid feet on his legs when we crawl into bed.
