jemos ~ Eco-Friendly Footwear for Infants and Toddlers

jemos footwear was founded in 2008, and was the original eco-friendly infant and toddler shoe line. Before ‘eco-friendly’ was a trendy term, they had a simple mission to design fun and stylish footwear for eco-conscious families. And, it’s the first time I have seen hand-sewn shoes that looked remarkably similar to machine-sewn footwear. Not only does hand-sewing footwear save on energy costs, yet the old fashion stitching techniques used at jemos is really impressive. This attention to detail in each and every pair is something which is hard to find in this day. jemo’s also goes that extra mile ensuring that they recycle and re-use as many materials as possible, from the materials to make the shoes – right down to the packaging and packing materials. One eco-extra that I was extremely impressed by, is that the jemos company website is hosted by a server that is run on 100% pure wind energy! Wow!

So, onto the shoes! My girls got a lovely pair of Taylor eco-friendly shoes, and before I even laid eyes on the shoes I noticed this packaging. The sturdy box uses low printing inks and a cotton rope handle. The Taylor shoes are nothing short of adorable. They are also flexible, making it great for pre-walkers and crawlers. Yet for my super-active twins, I really appreciate the non-skid bottoms. The materials used for the infant and toddler footwear at jemos are more than just so buttery soft – they are made of upcycled leather remnants from furniture manufacturers! jemos footwear also have durability and comfort with the 4 mm thick padded sole which cushions the soles, side and ankles. This provides extra comfort plus cushioning around the ankles. And, all Jemo shoes have been rigorously tested for safety using all CPSIA regulations, to ensure they are toxin-free and safe for you kids.

jemos footwear sure raised the bar when it comes to eco-friendly footwear. Not only am I more than impressed with the company and their focus on conservation, I am very pleased with style and design of the footwear. The prices are very attractive too, for under $30 a pair. As well, for an extra ounce of adorable, each box of shoes includes a plush giraffe finger puppet {he is the jemos mascot!}. This is an extra touch that impresses the kids and makes it even greater to give as a gift. The sizes range from XS {0-6 months} all the way up to XL {24 months}. Since my girls are just on the tail-end of the sizing offered at jemos, I would be more than thrilled to see larger sizes introduced in the future {hint, hint}.
