About Us and Our Baby and Toddler Shoes
Who are we?
We are a boutique, children's wear company specialising in soft, natural leather shoes for babies, toddlers and young children. All of our shoes are our own, unique designs created right here in Australia. Why? Because we love both shoes and children and know that our conditions are a little different to the rest of the world.
At Kit & Kate, we believe that our soft, hand-made, breathable, natural leather baby, toddler and children's shoes allow children to develop naturally as they progress towards making those long awaited first steps and beyond. All our shoes are designed with the child and mama in mind and our business’s core values: Comfort, Quality and Style, Accessible to Everyone. As a result, our shoes are cleverly designed, to be super comfortable, and able to be slipped on and off easily when required yet be secure, even on the most active of little feet (as tested and confirmed by my own children).
On top of that, each and every pair is carefully packed by us right here in the Northern Suburbs of Perth, Western Australia with a hand written note, our way of saying thank you for supporting us.
How it all started
While a little cliche, it all started with trying to find a pair of classic, stylish (yet comfortable) shoes; which my son wouldn’t take off within 5 seconds of me putting them on. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was learning all about shoemaking, drawing up designs and creating beautiful shoes that my children would love and wear. It didn’t take long before I started thinking about how great it would be to share my designs so that other children (and mums) could also enjoy them.
