THE CJ - BLACK
THE CJ - BLACK
Soft black leather with black cap toe in a Mary Jane style
This pre-walker shoe is created with a soft but durable leather upper, wider foot bed, a soft, leather sole, and a layer of padding in the insole for extra cushioning. Each pair of BU-KIN Booties comes in its own special cotton shoe bag and cardboard box for preserving as a keepsake.
BU-KIN Booties are constructed in the heart of Lancaster County, PA, by Amish leather workers and craftsmen. I then complete the finishing details in my Brooklyn workspace.

Notes from the American Academy of Pediatrics about baby shoes:
- Look for shoes with rounded toe boxes to give the toes more room for movement.
- The upper part of the child's shoe should be made of leather, canvas, or the newer mesh materials. Children's feet perspire heavily, and the upper part of their shoes should be made of breathable materials. Leather or canvas allows the foot to breathe. Avoid man-made materials, such as plastic.
- Make sure the insole is made of absorbent material. You may want padded insoles. Most children do not need a special arch support. All toddlers younger than 16 months have flat feet and only fully develop an arch by the age of 6 to 8 years.
- The shoe should be flexible rather than provide rigid support, and it's very important that the shoe be shaped like the child's foot.
