Starchild Shoes make soft sole leather baby shoes that are instantly recognisable – colourful and fun.
They protect little feet allowing them to breathe and grow naturally. The natural softy leather upper has a durable non skid sueded sole and is ideal for bouncing crawling and early walking even on tiled or wooden floors.
The elasticated ankle ensures that the shoes really do stay on.The elasticated ankle also means no fastenings to come undone, keeps their socks on and cannot be kicked off. Starchild baby shoes are recommended by mums and pediatricians. Soft leather allows feet to breath move and grow naturally.

I trained at J H Clarkes shoe factory in Leicester working as a design apprentice. This factory specialised in womens shoes and make all of their own components. Which gave me a great foundation in shoe making.
I later moved to London and worked with various fashion designers making shoes for their catwalk shows. These included Helen Storey, Katherine Hamnett, Nick Coleman and Vivienne Westwood. I made Westwood’s famous ‘Rocking Horse Shoes’, elevated platforms and many other fabulous creations!
Family commitments led to a move back to Leicestershire, where I worked freelance with various shoe factories in the area.
After the birth of my son, I made him some baby shoes. Purple with yellow stars. I started to sell others like it and the designs soon became hugely popular.
Starchild shoes are all original designs inspired by my own children. Our attention to detail is flawless. And all the leather and colours developed by us. We don’t believe in cutting corners. And our aim is to provide a personal and honest service always with a smile.
