I love these Bical Gripper shoes. I have them for both Sam (5 years old) and Georgia (11 months old). They have been great in the warm weather for Sam … they are easy to pull on and off and he thinks the sock/shoe combo is cool and loves that he can get them wet (Sam … leave the hose alone!). He gets them absolutely filthy and I have been able to just rinse them in soapy water and they are dry within 30-40 minutes and ready for the next day. They are easy to pack in my purse/diaper bag too (not bulky) and then I have them on hand for indoor playgrounds. No more slipping Sam when you are going UP the slide.
Sam has this cool car design and Georgia has some Froggies (there are 8 cute designs to choose from). The pink caterpillars are to die for, but there is a limit right (hurry Georgia and grow before we sell out!)?
Not only do these shoes look good, they SMELL awesome. REALLY … I’m not quite sure whether they spend more time in Georgia’s mouth or on her feet. Those great smelling rubbery soles make the perfect teething toy and must smell good enough to eat.
Try ’em … you’ll LOVE ’em!

These are cute … where can I get them?
Where are these made?
These shoes are great, I never thought of using them on older kids, easy to pack and take on vacation. Kim, I am going to order some today!
Joanne — you can purchase them at http://www.thebabymarketplace.com
Francine — the shoes are made in Brazil.
Annette — thanks, I will keep an eye out for your order.
I am interested in ordering these shoes for my 2 year old daughter. We are going to the beach this summer… and she does not like the sand on her feet!!
Do they stay on well, especially when wet? I love the idea, and they are so cute, but am concerned they will just slip off.
Also in your opinion, do they run small or large, or anything? My daughter has a pretty narrow foot, so most water shoes we have tried slip off her foot as soon as she takes a step.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
Amy: They do stay on as long as they are not too big. Tight is better than loose. They run a tiny bit small and are quite narrow.
Just received my gripper shoes, thanks for the recommendation Kim. Keep up the good work, looking forward to hearing more about your family – please share some more tales!!
