Gertrude and the King
We’re Sandra and Kate, a mother/daughter duo from sunny Brisbane, Queensland. Inspired by our own family taking those first unsteady steps and struggling to find soft sole shoes we liked, Gertrude and the King was born.
Designed to mimic bare feet and allow babies and toddlers to improve their balance as well as strengthen all of those tiny muscles and toes. If you have ever seen a baby or toddler tumble or do the robot dance whilst learning to walk, you know that those first steps are pretty difficult for them! A firmer sole with minimal flexibility can interfere with all the hard work little feet need to do to establish their crawling or walking (and mastering their run!)… Recommended by Paediatricians & Podiatrists, soft sole shoes allow little baby and toddler feet to really feel the ground and start walking confidently – faster!
