A few weeks ago, JuiceBox was touring the kiddo shops in town when we happened upon this adorable pair of baby booties at CC & Mays in Minnetonka. They are soft, functional, uniquely Minnesota, and completely adorable. They are also on sale through August.
The tiny suede kicks are made by Cade & Co., a Utah company on Etsy that initially caught CC & Mays owner Shayla Farmer’s eye because it’s similar to her son Caden’s name. When she saw the company's line of “I Heart” booties designed for other states, she asked if it could make a custom Minnesota version for her store.
The flexible soles help aspiring walkers balance better (with or without socks, Farmer tells us), while the suede helps protect against slipping when they’re cruising wildly around the coffee table. Go, Minnesota babies, go!
I Heart MN booties, in sizes 0-18 months, $32.30 (regularly $38) at CC & Mays, 12981 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka, 952-303-3475. Note: Beginning August 7, CC & Mays will reopen at 17420 Minnetonka Boulevard, Minnetonka.
