Brands we Love – Poco Nido
Here at Les Enfants we have lots of little clients, many of whom are under 2 years old! These mini customers are just as special as our adults, and today, we celebrate a brand who adores toddlers and babies as much as we do.
Poco Nido, an award winning British clothing brand with a love for colour and print, create fantastic baby shoes for children aged 3 months to 2 years. The brand has a fantastic range of material shoes, which are as stylish as they are comfortable.
This soft footwear allows your child to feel the ground below their feet for stability, with a little bit of natural protection. A suede sole provides grip, and moves with your baby’s foot. The shoes come in a fantastic range of block colours and prints, from tangerine to this fantastic rooster print.
You are sure to find a pair that will match wonderfully with various outfits, and provide a talking point with other parents. Poco Nido reccomend the shoes are worn for indoor use, or to keep toes cosy on buggy journeys. These beauties are for crawlers and early walkers only!
Poco Nido was founded by Catherine Lobley in 2011, when, tired of the small range of leather pull-ons for babies, she designed an alternative. The brand creates prints straight from their imaginations – they are not tied to trends or fads. Catherine explains
“Our products are the result of years of overseas travel, countless children’s bedtime stories, a love of pattern, symmetry, a hatred of over packaging, a passion for up-cycling and frustration with fastenings.”
This fantastic product and economical packaging (a simple, branded cardboard tube) has caught the eye of many retailers including Harvey Nichols and four distributors world wide.
Last year, the brand won Smallish Magazine’s Winner of Gifting category, and has been awarded Gold in the Loved by Parents Awards for Best Footwear. These are popular shoes, and it is pretty easy to see why!
In addition to their gorgeous footwear, Poco Nido offer a great range of bodysuits, rompers, vests and leggings, in more whimsical prints. The print is where the brand really shines, we adore this black zebra print, complete with colour pop stripe!
We also adore this fantastic fox print, gorgeous cobalt blue design and the English Garden shoe. Together Catherine and her team aspire to continue delivering simple, practical designs that fight against the ordinary, and are packed full of fun.
If you would like to see her shoes in person, pop down to another firm Les Enfants favourite, Olive Loves Alfie, a gorgeous kids store in Stoke Newington, and also in Stratford, stocking a range of wonderful clothing and home accessory designers.
Check out the entire collection here on the Poco Nido website. We challenge you to only buy one pair of shoes. Really, we do.
