Toddler Shoe Tantrums Solved

My toddler Anneliese is on the petite size of the spectrum. At 2 years old she is finally starting to fit into 18 month clothing! Her petite stature has also posed a bit of a problem when it comes to shoes. Her feet are small, but her enthusiasm, mobility and exuberance for activity are large.

This means that all of those baby and toddler shoes available to her on the market do a terrible job of cushioning and protecting her busy little feet as they run, jump and climb their way through her day. Plus they wear out faster than you can blink or the amount of time it takes her to run around the park a few times.

A few months ago a friend introduced me to Jack & Lily footwear for little feet and I was impressed. The shoe was soft and comfortable with a Super Flex bottom.Typically putting a pair of shoes on my toddler is the launch of a huge battle, because she says all of the shoes “hurt”. The first time I put a pair of Jack & Lily shoes on her I noticed an immediate difference and they have pretty much ended our daily shoe battles. Jack & Lily was started by a Mom like me who felt frustrated by the quality and style of baby footwear and knew she could do better and thankfully, she did!


I reached out to Jack & Lily to tell them how much my toddler and I loved their shoes and I was excited when they let Anneliese and I pick out a brand new pair! Of course she had to have the ones with the “horsies” .

Anneliese will now sit down and put her “horsie” shoes on all by herself, thus ending our daily shoe battles! This makes me super happy and I am also happy knowing that she has a great pair of shoes that are doing a great job protecting and cushioning her little feet. These are hands down her favorite shoes, and basically the only shoes she will wear.

Now I have some super exciting news! Jack & Lily has offered to give a pair of their amazing shoes away to one lucky JENerally Informed reader!

  1. OK, these are adorable and remind me a bit of Pedi Peds that we bought for my girls when they were younger. By the way, I know all about having petite girls, as my oldest was and still is. At 6 years old, she is in a size 10 shoe still and I recently had to buy her shoes for hip hop dance class and had to go to the dance store to have them get her the smaller size shoe as Payless here doesn’t carry this type of shoe in her size sadly. So true me get it totally, Jen.

      Oh those petite girls! Well at least their clothes last longer! I have a middle daughter who is growing like a weed now and faster than I blink she grows out of everything! Now if we were closer I could just share some of huge bin if dance shoes with you :)

  3. Oh funny – I already followed them on Facebook. Apparently I have good taste!
    She is just so cute. Scarlet is really tiny. People are often surprised she’s six! Quality footwear is highly important to us.

      Yes you do! Have good taste that is. They seriously are some awesome sauce shoes. Yep, I just said awesome-sauce! Hooray for our petite and cute girls! Here’s to hoping someday they have some kind of a growth spurt :)

  4. Oh those shoes are just the cutest. No wonder she is all smiles. I wish my girls had been on the smaller side of things instead of the larger. They out grew those sweet toddler clothes way to fast. She’s precious.

      Thanks Beth! She really is the “runtlet” of the family! Cute and petite, with a HUGE personality though! Luckily, her small stature keeps her from outgrowing her clothes faster than I would like!
