Review: Attipas Baby Shoes

Ethan is not a big fan of shoes. In the past 6 months I have purchased three shoes which we barely use because he gets cranky when we put them on. When we do get him to wear them, they either come off easily or he stops a lot when he walks, probably because he’s uncomfortable. I tried slip-ons with leather soles, tiny squeaky rubber shoes and some cheap slip-ons with socks.
Now that Ethan is becoming increasingly active, I’ve come to realize that he needs a good pair of shoes. He spends a lot of time walking and running, and he needs durable yet comfortable shoes that he can wear at home and outdoors. I was so lucky when Mommy Bloggers Philippines and Attipas Philippines gave us the opportunity to try out the Attipas Baby Shoes, the timing could not have been more perfect!
Attipas Baby Functional Shoes are designed to teach our babies how to walk correctly while providing comfort, durability and safety. They come in different styles and colors, too!
Β Attipas Baby Functional Shoes is aimed at helping babies to start walking correctly by evenly distributing foot pressure and correct toddler’s walking behavior while he/she learns to walk. The design is based on kinetic and physio-dynamic test of toddlers’ walking that enables the steady and stable walking pattern of the toddler. It also helps in the toddler’s brain development by enabling the sole and toe movement while walking. (from the Attipas Philippines Facebook page)

Too cute, right? Imagine how excited I was when Attipas Philippines sent us a pair for Ethan!
Check out the cool packaging!
Ethan’s very own Attipas! They sent us one from the Natural Herb Collection in Yellow Gray
They arrived just a day before our big trip to Subic! Again, perfect timing!
When we had Ethan try them out, he was fussy at first and he tried to stop me from putting them on! But as soon as we got the shoes on, he started walking as if nothing happened. He did stare at the shoes at first, but then he went back to running around. Here are a few things I noticed:
  • He does not constantly stop anymore, like he did with his old shoes.
  • They don’t slip off like most slip-ons with socks do. He had them on for a couple of hours and they did not come off at all.
  • He did not get itchy or irritable from the socks, he usually does not like wearing socks!
  • He rarely trips or falls down.
During our two days in Subic I had him wear the shoes every time we’d go out. I can honestly say that based on our observations, these shoes are barely noticeable to him.
I love walking in my Attipas!
A budding model in action!
Their Red Marine design would be perfect with his outfit here!!
Upon checking the pamphlet they included in the package, I realized that there is a special benefit to the Natural Herb variant that they sent us:
“Natural Herb yellow is dyed with Amur Corktree. Amur Corktree is one of the most frequently used medical substance from old days. It is known to have outstanding effect for skin drying and sensitive skin. For contemporary people who pursue well-being, natural dye is a great gift. These natural dye will be a present to children with skin trouble like atopy inflammation”
What are the odds that they would send me shoes with such benefits? My son has skin asthma and has patches of eczema on his feet and legs. Come to think of it, this morning I noticed that the patches in the crease between his left foot and leg were gone – completely gone. I’m not sure if I can attribute it to the shoes, or to the salt water when we hit the beach – or both? I can’t tell. But the fact that they could incorporate such healing properties to shoes is just amazing.
All I can say is that these shoes are awesome and true to Attipas’ claims! I still have to observe though if there are any signs of improvement in the way he walks. I checked out Attipas on Lazada and they go for P899 to P1000+. Some of you mommies may find them expensive, but I’m telling you, they are worth it. You just can’t find shoes that offer so much.
Okay, mommies. Let’s sum it up, here are a few more amazing things about Attipas Baby Functional Shoes:
PROS

  • Lightweight and flexible – perfect for active babies
  • They don’t easily slip off, they stay put!

  • They come in a lot of designs! They have collections such as Rainbow, Animal, Corsage, Ballet, Marine, Together, Sneakers, Polka, and Natural Hurb!

CONS

I honestly can’t think of any. Some might say price, but I’d definitely buy Ethan another pair without hesitation. And with everything listed above, I can’t come up with any reason to dislike these shoes.

    1. Hi Mommy May,

      It’s worth trying out, si Ethan he really hated his bulky shoes, yung may velcro straps. The Attipas is more comfortable, it’s designed to make kids feel like they’re walking barefoot. I hope it works for your kid if you decide to buy, let me know how it goes! πŸ™‚

      Regards,
      Nicole

  1. My son’s name is Ethan also. This shoes is really cute. When my son was 1yr old below, I don’t buy shoes and I always use socks that look like shoes. πŸ™‚

  2. Gah, your pair looks so cute! I’m so excited to get mine! I was actually wondering whether it’d be fit for outdoor use, but you seemed to use it outdoors, so I’m even more excited haha πŸ˜€

  3. Hi Nicole! Ethan is truly a blessing! His adorable photos show that he really enjoyed wearing those baby shoes. Kaka-one lang niya? Exciting days ahead, Mommy! I’ll be following your mommy updates. I hope to see you in the coming MBP events. Ingats!

    1. Hi Nadia! Great seeing you here. I’m glad you still remember me. Yes, he just turned one, ang likot na grabe! I have to chase him all the time. Same here, hope to see you too in our upcoming events!

  4. Ang cuuuuuttttteeee ni Ethan!!!! Hahaha. I have just visited your blog now and I fell in love with your cutie patotie!! Hehehe. I can’t wait to try attipas too with my very makulit na baby boy! =)

  5. Ethan looks really comfortable in them. I wonder how my daughter would feel about it, too. Then again, she loves shoes – she associates it with going outdoors kasi. Hehe

  6. It looks like Ethan is enjoying his Attipas shoes πŸ™‚ My daughter is already turning 6 in a few months. How I wish she was able to try those when she was still little. Hmm, maybe for the next baby in the future πŸ™‚

  7. Your little boy looks so cute with the shoes! I have to agree with you that it’s the most comfy shoes they ever had. My daughter walks properly with it that at first she felt like she doesn’t have any shoes on! πŸ™‚

  8. These look so comfy and the features you listed definitely make it worth buying. My son is 3 years old and I wish this had been available when he was smaller. Your son looks like he’s comfortable and having fun in those shoes. πŸ™‚

    1. Maybe their bigger sizes will still fit your son? Ethan’s wearing medium and he’s more than a year old. I know they have big sizes but I’m not sure of the measurements. Try checking out their FB page πŸ™‚

  9. Your post excited me, who would ever think that shoes could actually have that many benefits? I agree with you that it might be pricey for some but it also can be considered as a worthy investment. πŸ™‚

  10. Hi, I read your blog ang I decided to give it a try to the shoes. The shoes came today but the inside looks diferent than regular shoes. Like it has no insoles. Is that the way they are? Are they meant to use without socks because I touch the botton of the shoes inside and it was a little rough. Since you have a pair could you clarify this to me….thanks so much. I love your blog πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Luz,

      Yup as I remember (because it’s been a while) it didn’t have an insole but I don’t recall the bottom being rough. My son was pretty comfortable wearing his pair until he grew out of it.

      Thanks for dropping by the blog!
