The Shaughnessy Shoe
Made with leather upper and semi-soft suede soles. Here are some more reasons we love the Shaughnessy Shoe
Baby resistant velcro
We wanted velcro as it is so much more practical than a clasp when you are putting a shoe on a squirmy baby, but it needed to be strong enough so they can’t undo it and take it straight off, we have sourced the strongest velcro we can and have had the most rambunctious babies test them
Soft suede sole
We looked at a couple of different soles, including a more structured sole and a leather sole and, in the end, we went for a flexible sole that is suede with 3mm of protection for little feet and slip resistant. There is nothing worse than learning to walk and feeling like you are on ice (at least we imagine..!). We also decided not to go for a hard sole as we focus on the 0 – 24 months age group and we believe that semi-soft soles are best for the development and protection of a babies foot.
Our first design is a classic t-bar shoe that spans generations and all styles. Everything we do at Aston Baby is classic and heirloom, which are our guiding principles. These baby shoes are built to last and built to span generations of changing styles and trends!
What’s in the name?
We live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia and there are so many neighbourhoods that are all beautiful in their own way. Shaughnessy is full of old world beauty, something you don’t often get in Vancouver. It was built to last, with detail in every inch of the beautiful homes and big mature gardens. Things there are just different, and even though it’s not the scenic mountain and skyscraper scene that Vancouver is known for, the classic beauty, craftsmanship, and detail are what we love! Great qualities and standards to hold our beautiful baby shoes too!
