Early Days has extended its range of hand-crafted leather shoes for toddlers, adding new colours and designs to the already very popular collection.

The classic Alex T-bar pre-walker which proved to be a huge success over the last 18 months prompted the company to extend the range into the brand new First Walker collection with the launch of Alex II.

Alex II has all the attributes of its pre-walker counterpart with the addition of buckle fastening, a sturdy but flexible sole and features soft full leather linings complete with arch support.

Immediately a huge hit, the Alex first walker is now available in two new colours – Black Patent for that special-occasion feel and beautiful Sky Blue.

The first walker range has also been expanded to take in two new styles. Alice and Edward, in keeping with their timeless British names, offer Early Days’ traditional craftsmanship and quality with up-to-date additions to ensure optimum comfort and support while little ones are still wobbly on their feet.

The Alice classic bar shoe features full soft leather linings, a leather insole with arch support and a lightweight flexible rubber walking sole to give little feet the freedom they need for natural balance. This is finished with a buckle fastening, punch and gimping details and decorative stitching for a classic, pretty appearance.

The shoe is available in sizes 19-23 in white, navy, pink, red and black patent to appeal to every taste.

For boys, the Edward Oxford lace-up provides the same high-performance materials and handiwork with practical touches, completed by decorative punching and stitching matched with a more contemporary lacing style. The Edward shoe is also being made in sizes 19-23 in black, brown, navy and ecru.
