HELLO!

WELCOME TO BUKU BABIES

We're a small family owned business based out of Huntington Beach, California. Last year, my siblings and I all had our first babies and came up with a great idea for a really cool baby shoe. Our goal from the beginning was to create a baby shoe that is great looking, easy to put on, and stylish for both girls and boys. Our intent was to design a shoe that is both Simple and Significant. And we think our Buku Babies shoe is the next classic.

Everybody knows a baby. Surprise them with their first pair of Buku shoes!

THE SHOES 

 

ERGO ENTRY DESIGN

Designed for easy on and off your baby's feet.  

SIZE VERIFICATION

Don't guess. SEE if the shoe fits.  Our open-top design enables the shoe to unzip and fold to the side.

Just unzip the shoe, place your baby's foot in, and zip it up!  

ERGO ZIPPER PULL

The Buku rubber zipper pull is concave and sized for adult-sized fingertips.

STYLE

Simple and classic Patent Pending design that's stylish for both girls and boys.

MATERIAL OPTIONS

Three different styles to choose from:

STYLES AND COLORS

With your help, we will launch with the following styles and color options:

Please use these numbers (1-9) when providing us your order information at the close of our campaign.  

BONUS COLOR!!!

Rose Gold - Leather with Leather

SIZING

We will launch with three sizes ranging from 3 months to 18 months, although we've already had many requests for larger sizes of 24 months and beyond.  Once our launch is a success, we plan to launch a size 4 and 5.

Risks and challenges

Our little family business includes experience in industrial design and sourcing products from around the globe. Our shoes have minimal risks because these shoes are fairly simple and we are using already existing industry accepted manufacturing processes. We received our first prototypes a few month back. Since then, we've made several improvements and we just received the final samples and we're very happy with the final product.

Also, our supplier is already producing baby shoes for several well known U.S. brands carried by major retailers. Consumer expectations vary from consumer to consumer, but we have high confidence in our shoes and strongly believe this will be a great success.
