Taste of China...

No! I'm not talking about food!!! I'm talking about every women's obsession... SHOES!!! Over a month ago, I ordered some "prewalker/crib shoes" off ebay, and they are handmade in China! Which I thought was all very ironic! Anyway, they took forever to get here, (coz I ordered them right before their Oct holiday), but they are home now! AND they are oh-so-cute! I love them to bits. And even better, they were dirt cheap (I think the most expensive ones were $2.86?!!! + postage of about $7!!!) I know, I know, don't lecture me on the fact that there are thousands of shoes to choose from in China - my friends got back recently and said they hardly saw any shoes!!! You've got to remember that we Australians, don't go to Guangzhou or Beijing and our schedules whilst in China are a little different to the American circuit!

So, back to the shoes - check out these babies!

And did I mention how soft they are? Soft as a baby's bum! I ordered 6-12 months size, and they seem a little big to me... but hey, without a 6-12 month old around - what would I know?!!!

The ebay seller's store name is RUJIs - if you wanna go have a look - they ship to US, UK & AUS, probably Europe too, but I noticed they sell in GBP, US$ & AUS$. They have lots of other cute designs, and I'm sure I'll go back for more - I just wanted to get one pair first (turned out to be 3 pairs!) so I could check out the quality! Which is excellent, by the way. R0bees are fantastic, but hideously expensive for what they are... these are just as good... in my opinion!!!

Thanks for sharing these great little shoes! Looking forward to hearing of the cute baby feet ready for you to fill them.

I know you'll be very surprised to find that I already own the pink penguin pair. I found this store awhile back and got them for a .99 cent auction. With shipping they were like $8 bucks. Way cheaper than Robeez and basically the same shoe.

Very cute picks.

Cuteness. I was just about to say how Krista would love the penguins.

I have a collection of the Robeez so I have to lay off for a while ;0)

Love yours!

Oh my goodness, those are adorable!
They look just like the Robeez!!
I haven't started buying shoes yet because I'm worried about sizes. I thought for sure we would see TONS of shoes in China and I was going to MORE than make up for my lack of shoe buying there! Now, I'm worried!! My body is starting to twitch. Must. Get. Shoes.

I love those shoes! Olivia only had 1 pair of those kind. I'd love to get her some more, but her feet are big for her age (another baby in our travel group, that's the same age, had a size 3 shoe & Olivia is a size 5). So we call her big foot :)

Headmeister said...

Um, helloooooo... I am TOTALLY loving these!!! And I CAN NOT believe how inexpensive they were!!! I have yet to buy any of these shoes (in fact, I haven't bought even one pair of shoes yet!!!) but I'll be checking her store out on eBay for sure!
