My name is Lucy and I am the creator and founder of Babalus. I started my little company in 2016 after my husband Brad and I welcomed our daughter Robin into the world. I found myself in a position that almost all new moms find themselves in… having to choose between returning to work outside of our home or finding a way to financially support being able to stay home with our beautiful baby girl. With absolutely no prior sewing experience, I decided to take the plunge and bought my first machine from Craigslist. I taught myself to sew and carved out a niche that specialized in children's leggings, but I knew I had to create something totally unique to me. I began reaching out and working with designers to create prints exclusively for my shop. From there, Babalus started to grow and has continued to flourish in a way that has exceeded my wildest expectations.
We are so thrilled to start our newest adventure by offering my one of a kind designs in 100% leather shoes for your little ones.
- Genuine Leather
- Easy to wipe clean
- Non-Slip soles on sizes 4 and above
- Soft suede soles on infant sizes
Staying true to Babalus style, I have selected six of my most popular designs to offer in the Babalus Shoes launch. From Bulldogs...to Pitbulls...to Astronauts that are out of this world... there is a little something for every little one.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for continuing to believe in me and helping me to make Babalus Shoes a reality. I know these will quickly become your littles’ most prized footwear, and I look forward to expanding my shop into the shoe market! Without your help funding this project, none of this could be a reality, so thank you for shopping small and supporting this mama’s vision.
If we exceed our initial funding goal these are bonus items I could add to the shop!
I know many people have requested an option for older children, so i have designed hard sole shoes for girls. I would love to release these, and that will be possible if we hit the bonus goal amount! More details below:
Risks and challenges
While I have been making children's clothing since 2016, shoes are a brand-new category for me. I need your feedback and support to make Babalus Shoes a success!
After a long process of selecting a manufacturer, I settled on an established company overseas that is able to bring my vision to life using the highest quality materials available.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
