Shoes for the return to school
It is particularly difficult to find your way around the right choice of back-to-school shoes, too many brands are competing for your attention; allow us to bring you back to the basics;
They should be:
1/ Comfortable yet sturdy (suitable for wild play), but at the same time they must be light and flexible , as they will be worn for most of the day.
2/ easy to slide on and off, especially for little ones who don't know how to tie them yet.
3/ easy to clean, believe us they will get diiiirrrtttyyyyy!
4/As you already know, shoes have a big environmental footprint especially those made of plastic materials, prefer natural and/or recycled long lasting material like real leather, cottons …etc

A very cute idea and perfect for the back-to-school season are NIDO TERRA . Perfect for any school/group environment, they are ideal for those children who have uniforms and for whom decidedly more neutral, dark-coloured shoes are required. They are also wonderful for girls. At Colline we believe in colors not gender, this is why we will always have on offer gender free shoes besides being always colorful at heart.
The important thing is to have the right shoe for your little one: of course it always starts with a pair at the right size and in which they feel comfortable.
In doubt, always go for one shoe size up and prefer barefoot shoes. (link to explanation of what barefoot is)
While you're at it, get an eco-friendly leather nurturing cream.. Regularly applied on your baby's shoes the night before you put them on will keep these little feet dry and the shoes will last much longer. You can use any moisturizing cream available, or our recommended all natural creams for moisturizing the leather.
