Before my daughter was born, we filled her nursery with items I made – gently handcrafted clothes, blankets, bibs etc. Among the keepsakes I created, we found one stand-out item we couldn't live without.
My new baby was wearing a pair of booties I made for her, and I realized that this was the greatest thing I’d ever made. These baby booties actually stayed on her feet and they were absolutely adorable. After making numerous adjustments, the first pair of 'Bison Booties' was born in October, 2010.
I'm a mom and I make these booties the way I know they will function best. Bison Booties are each handcrafted from my original pattern, based on my own daughter's feet. Bison Booties are machine washable and made with designer 100% cotton and vegan-friendly sherpa fleece in-sole, with suede out-sole. Soft fabric-wrapped elastic keeps the booties comfortable snug on even the busiest baby feet.
Original Bison Booties are available in for boys and girls, in sizes from newborn to toddler size US 6 (approx. 24 months). Bison Booties Slippers are available in sizes for toddlers/children/youth, women, and men.
Each pair of Bison Booties is handcrafted with love in Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota.
Each and every pair of Bison Booties is hand crafted in North Dakota, USA, and is a "Pride of Dakota - North Dakota Originals" product. Bison Booties is a woman-owned company committed to domestic production and environmental sustainability. You’ll see these commitments in our manufacturing practices, our support of work-at-home moms, and in our use of organic fabrics and minimal, environmentally responsible packaging.
