Little adventurers can explore the Australian Outback from the comfort of home with Poco Nido’s new SS21 Mini Shoe collection. 

The barefoot-friendly baby and children’s footwear brand has introduced new designs inspired by life Down Under, so budding Aussies can explore all the colours of the world through their first precious steps.

All the iconic favourites of Australia are represented in this quirky new, hand-printed Mini shoe collection, from fur to fish, feathers and flora!

The prints feature Kangaroos, Platypus, Great White Sharks and even a sweet hugging Koala. There’s Big Bird Emus and surfing Rockhopper Penguins for the avian enthusiast, and the magnificent plant life of Down Under is not forgotten with the Australian Flowers and Coral Reef prints. Children’s imaginations will be truly sparked with these charming, unisex designs.

Also available in the collection is a selection of Plain Mini shoes in vibrant colours, including Galah Pink, Ember Orange and Chestnut Purple, designed to evoke daydreams of the famous Bondi beach, or Uluru. 

Poco Nido’s Mini range is available in UK sizes 1-8 and features an innovative barefoot friendly suede sole, with the enhanced grip and flexibility needed to encourage baby’s first steps. With genius pull-on stay-on technology, the Mini range offers the perfect hybrid of barefoot and shoe, enabling little ones to comfortably gain confidence exploring their surroundings.

Poco Nido’s first shoes are completely free from choking hazards and banned chemicals such as lead and formaldehyde, with each collection confirmed and independently verified by Intertek, for 100% peace of mind for parents. The original Mini shoes are made from cotton with a chrome-free cow suede sole, and to further the inclusivity of the collection, selected prints are also available with a vegan sole option.

Founded in Sheffield by mother-of-two Catherine Lobley, Poco Nido was born from a desire to offer something high quality and a little different for the children’s footwear market. She commented on the latest launch:

“I’m so pleased we have managed to capture the real essence of Australian life in this new seasonal launch. Our Mini shoes are designed specifically to nurture those first important steps, and what better way to do that than with these charming new designs. We’re also thrilled to announce for the first time ever, due to the overwhelming popularity of our Vegan Mini shoes, we are now offering all sizes in selected prints in Vegan sole options.”
