Born in the Queensland bush, loved by parents all over

Hi, I’m Mandy. I’m a mum, and like so many Australian parents I had a tough time finding the right shoes for my little one. 

I searched high and low for shoes that were practical, hard-wearing, affordable, and most importantly, podiatrist approved. 

When I couldn’t find what I needed I created them myself, and Billycart Kids was born…

Customer love


“Affordable, practical, and very easy to put on, these shoes are great for my toddler who has wide feet and also sensory issues when it comes to shoes and having things on her feet. We've successfully got her to wear the sandals and she is comfortable walking, running and playing in them as they are lightweight and flexible but also durable. We will be trying a few more shoe styles from Billycart!”

“As an Australian based Podiatrist, I am always on the look out for children shoes that mimic being barefoot, to allow the foot to develop naturally. The space in the toes is fantastic, and I like that they are really light and flexible. They were really easy to put on too which is always handy with a wriggly toddler.
Personally I remove the insole to increase the ground feel, but I like there’s the option to either keep in the insole in or remove it.”

“The best toddler shoes we’ve tried. Love these shoes for my 18 month old. So easy to put on with wide openings, and he never pulls these off - they look so comfortable and give just the right amount of support as he learns to walk. My son’s paediatric physio also gave them a big thumbs up for their bendy sole. Will definitely get more styles as his feet grow”

“Love these shoes as both a mum and a physiotherapist”

My 14 month old loves these shoes and they are super cute. She has chubbier feet and some of the other brands we have tried tend not to hold her weight well. These shoes are amazing as she toddles along and gives her great support. Our chiro even loved them and was off to buy a pair for her granddaughter!

Riley shoes

We love the Riley shoes. My son had taken a few steps here and there before I bought these shoes. The day we received them, I put them straight on him and he walked the most steps he had ever taken! Within a few days he started walking independently. They look comfy and feel like good quality. He comes up to us through the day to put them on so he can walk around the house! We bought two pairs of Billycart Kids shoes and will definitely buy in the future. I was able to buy two pairs for under the price of one pair of other brands.
