Necessity birthed invention when new mum Natasha Barber had her first child in 2005. Unable to find quality, soft shoes that suited her baby's needs, Natasha decided to get to work on creating her own. Natasha then began researching foot health and development, only to discover the lack of education and information available. This inspired her to dive even deeper into the world of podiatry and, with a newfound passion, created her own company, SKEANIE Shoes for Kids.
Did you know that a baby's foot contains more cartilage than bone? In the first two years, the structure of the foot is fully developed, but the bones don't fully harden until age 13. In the initial three years, the greatest changes occur in the foot. A child's foot endures three times more stress than an adult's, and sweats twice as much!
Spray your SKEANIE toddler sandals with water and stain repellent before wearing them! Wiping down the sandals with a damp cloth or leather wipe is the key to keeping them looking bright and new. For extra softness and colour maintenance, try Shucare Leather Conditioner and Renovating Polish. Just don't forget: SKEANIE shoes must never go in the washing machine or dryer!

SKEANIE leather shoes and boots are made from soft, comfortable leather and feature thin, flexible rubber and/or suede soles as this is recommend for growing feet. As our shoes are made from soft leather, they should be worn for special occasions or dress shoes. Our shoes are made from soft leather, which will scuff when scrapped along a rough surface.
They do enjoy walking, running and playing; however they do not like getting wet, being used as brakes on your bike or scooter, kicking a footy, climbing trees or walking through mud and dirt.
We recommend that you spray your SKEANIE footwear with a Shucare Water and Stain Repellent prior to wear. The best way to keep your SKEANIE footwear looking bright and new is to simply wipe over with a clean damp cloth or leather wipe. Applying Shucare Leather Conditioner and Renovating Polish will assist with maintaining their softness and colour. SKEANIE footwear should never be placed in the washing machine or dryer.
Metallic leathers are created using a hot press technique in which foil is bonded to the leather. Metallics are not as durable as regular leathers, and if the foil is scratched it will expose the leather underneath. There is no process we know of to re-foil shoes, so please tread with care!

Gentle Stain Repellent for Shoes
When it comes to keeping our shoes looking their best, a little preventative care goes a long way. And one of the best ways to do that is by using a gentle stain repellent.
SKEANIE's gentle stain repellent is made specifically for leather baby shoes, and it's formulated to repel water, dirt, and stains. It's easy to use and will help keep footwear looking clean and new. Plus, it's safe for all types of shoes, including leather and suede. So no matter what type you have, you can protect them with this gentle repellent.
Shoe Polish Kits Keep Your Leather Shoes Looking New
First, it’s important to choose the right shoe care products. We recommend using a cleaner and conditioner like our Natural Leather Conditioner & Patent Cleaner. This product is specifically designed for baby shoes and is gentle enough for even the most delicate leather.
To use, simply apply a small amount of cleaner to a clean, dry cloth and rub it into the leather in a circular motion. Once the shoes are clean, apply a little conditioner to another clean, dry cloth and rub it into the leather. This will help to protect the leather and keep it looking its best.
Once you’ve applied the cleaner and conditioner, you can use a shoe brush to buff the shoes and give them a little extra shine.
