Kim and Brian dreamt up the idea for Rileyroos after being frustrated with the lack of stylish and developmentally friendly shoe choices when they had their fir st child. They created Rileyroos with a focus on style, comfort and ease, which they think is
most important for little growing feet. Rileyroos design inspiration comes from a combination of European fashion trends and American
spirit and casualness. Rileyroos designed the line to imitate barefoot walking
and to protect little feet. The sole
of a Rileyroos shoe is flexible and its rubber-padded sole
curls above the toes to provide leverage as a child begins crawling. Unlike many heavy or bulky first walking shoes
, Rileyroos' lightweight construction and protective bottoms support a child's foot as he or she starts walking and provides traction to prevent falls on slippery surfaces. Rileyroos hopes these shoes become a part of your family, like they've become a part of theirs.
