Designed for healthy growing feet, crafted using a combination of natural and recycled materials, it offers an authentic reflection of Australian children’s needs. The sustainable collection expresses the carefree spirit and captures the essence of youthfulness through thoughtful designs.

Sandy Trapnell, Creative Director, and Co-founder of Lemonade Footwear emphasises, “Our vision extends beyond footwear; it’s about nurturing confidence, imagination, and self-expression in our children while preserving the planet they’ll inherit. Our new collection is a testament to our commitment to a better future for little feet and the planet, but what truly distinguishes us is our commitment to maintaining an affordable price point, a key element that sets us apart. We believe in positively impacting both little feet and the planet, and our new collection reflects our dedication to providing unmatched value for our customers.”

Featuring an extensive array of sandals and sneakers catering to ages 9 months old to 8 years old, Lemonade Footwear has parents covered right up to the school years.

Crafted with 100% natural biodegradable rubber soles and 100% recycled cotton canvas, the shoes stand as a testament to durability and echo a dedication to preserving the environment. Lemonade shoes are built to last, ensuring that they can keep up with even the most adventurous of kids.

Boasting a custom-designed 100% natural rubber sole the Tallow ensures durability and comfort acknowledging parents challenges in getting those little feet into shoes.

From the initial design sketches to the final stitches, each pair has undergone extensive product testing by the children who inspired them. The result is footwear that sparks the imagination and stands up to the boundless energy of young explorers.
