What’s so great about Billycart Kids shoes?

Our shoes are designed to mimic the barefoot walking experience as closely as possible, which is so important for growing little feet.

Most of our shoes feature:

  • Flexible, soft rubber soles for balance and coordination
  • Comfortable, wide toes to fit the natural shape of little feet
  • Ergonomic foot pads for comfort and support
  • Lightweight materials to support easy movement
  • Anti-slip sole tread for balance and safety
  • Quality materials for easy cleaning and long lasting wear
  • Strong velcro and elastic straps that are no fuss and quick to put on
  • Reinforced heel for support
  • Breathable mesh lining for comfort, to be worn with or without socks
  • Removable, machine-washable, padded inner-soles for easy cleaning

And our shoes are uniquely designed in Australia, by an Australian owned and operated company.

Products

One of the most frustrating things about buying kids shoes is that there are no set standard sizes – this makes it really difficult to order online.

When purchasing Billycart Kids shoes for the first time, refer to our super handy children's shoe sizing guide

Or check out the Billycart Kids foot size measurer which is available with free shipping. 

When measuring, remember to add up to 1.4cm to the longest foot measurement for some growth room.

Also, when you purchase two different styles in the same size, you may notice that one style appears smaller than the other. This is because some of our shoe styles use thicker outer materials than others. We’ve carefully based our sizing off the inner-sole measurement to ensure the perfect fit for your child's growing foot.

1. With your child in a standing position, place their heel against the curved end of the children’s foot measuring device

2. Push the white slider to the end of their big toe. 

3. Remove their foot and keep the white slider in position.

4. Take note of their foot length in cms. 

5. Use the table in our children’s shoe size guide to determine which size to order. 

We made this change based on customer feedback, to allow easier comparison with other children's shoe brands. 

Each of our product descriptions shows the style in EU as well as bk (Billycart Kids) sizes. Refer to the bk size when using the Billycart Kids Foot Measurer to measure your child's foot. 

Because the soles on our shoes are specifically designed for different ages – for example, babies have different walking abilities to toddlers, so they need different soles. The upper designs of the shoes need to be adapted for each style of sole.

Nope! Our shoes are nice and soft inside, so they’re perfect to wear with or without socks. 

Yes! All our styles are super durable and are perfect for inside and outside wear. 

Leather uppers: We recommend wiping our leather shoes and sandals regularly with a clean, damp cloth or specially labelled "leather wipes".

Removable fabric inner-soles: You can hand wash inner-soles, or place them in the washing machine on a gentle cycle.

Removable leather inner-soles: Simply remove the insole and wipe clean. 

Suede: We recommend spraying suede with a protective spray before use. 

Rubber soles, or canvas and mesh uppers: You might like to use a toothbrush to gently scrub these areas with a mild soap or detergent.

You'll find Billycart Kids shoes in children's boutiques across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
