Booties are some of the best baby footwear for little feet in the first few months.Best Baby Booties

In the first few months (and years!) of baby’s life, coziness is key. You want to keep your little one comfortable from head (yup, hats!) to toes—which means investing in a few pairs of baby booties should be on that baby to-do list.

But what exactly are baby booties? And why do you need them?

Baby booties are not quite socks and not quite shoes. They are a soft but structured form of footwear for your non-walker—something to keep those feet covered and warm, and often with gripper bottoms for those first few steps—but without the hardness and stability baby’s first shoes will offer. After all, little feet, while bundled and warm, need some room to grow. Think of them as slippers for babies, but really, they’re transitional footwear, so that your little one gets used to the idea of having something more structured than socks on their feet.

When purchasing baby booties, consider the style—newborn booties will be much softer and less structured than booties meant for new walkers, who will need grippers on the bottoms of their booties to help them along.

You’ll also want to think about the materials your baby booties are made off. Choose soft, comfortable and breathable materials.

Here are some adorable favorites.

Fuzzy Fleece

Cozy, colorful and utterly adorable, Zutano’s fleece baby booties are what you’d buy for yourself—if they only came in your size. Alas, they’re meant for baby, and built for comfort: made of Sherpa fleece outside with a soft cotton interior, they have an easy-on two-snap design with ankle elastic that ensures they stay put. Zutano also makes organic cotton booties too.

Super Soft

These booties are not only adorable, but they have a two-part closure system that adjusts to fit as baby grows, so they stay on. The soft bamboo/cotton blend is breathable, naturally antimicrobial and environmentally sustainable, and helps keep their feet cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cool.

Room to Grow

These booties comes in irresistible designs, like rainbows, lions and bunnies, and have a comfy elastic ankle band that helps them stay on.

A Touch of Glitz

These soft leather moccs have just the right amount of glitz for a sweet touch. Elastic at the opening makes them easy to put on, take off and they stay on little feet.

Quilty Soft

Like little clouds, these organic cotton booties have a jersey wrap around the ankle along with enamel bee snaps to keep them snug on baby’s feet.
