I'm not one of those moms who overlooks the cuteness of itty bitty baby shoes, but when it comes to grabbing baby and getting out the door as quickly as possible, I am one of those moms who welcomes user-friendliness as well as wearer-friendliness.
Katie Richardson, half of the founding duo (other half is hubby Ben) of Puj Baby gets that and more, giving busy moms and dads who don't have time for tiny buckles, fluffs and frills every single day the Booti, a funny-looking little slip-on for every occasion.
Made from the most luxurious leather, courtesy of an old-school bootmaker and his wife - based right here in the good ol' US of A - each innovative little shoe is also perfectly symmetrical, eliminating the right foot or left foot guessing game when you have things to do and places to be.
