If you've got a little walker, then winter shoes are a must. Barefoot, of course, doesn't work in the rain, snow and ice. Now, that said, if you're trying to live green, you may run into issue because locating eco-friendly shoes isn't always easy. Here's what to look for:
  • Sustainable and natural materials like recycled or reclaimed leather (NOT new leather), rubber, organics and so on.
  • Choose safe baby shoes, not just eco-friendly shoes. Some companies make one or the other, but not both.
  • Less toxic dyes - for example a shoe company may use child safe dyes vs. chemical dyes.
  • A long life - baby and toddler shoes don't need to last very long, because before you know it, your tot will need a new size. However, that's no reason for shoe companies to make shady shoes. That's a waste of materials and energy, not to mention your cash. You want shoes you can pass on to another parent or save if you're planning on more kids.
Here are six nice winter shoes for your tot that are also eco-friendly... [gallery]
