    All the products that we offer products are hand-made of natural materials. Our suppliers use natural leather and woollen fabrics and all materials (rubber and glue inclusive) are produced in the European Union and meet the EU requirements and standards for safety goods and comply with all applicable REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances - the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use) requirements.

    Leather

    • Natural Italian, Spanish and Dutch leather - chromium tanning (processing) used; NO formaldehyde, azo dyes, chromium VI, nickel and other metals and ingredients, which are forbidden from the European Union, because they are toxic in given quantities. All  materials meet and comply with all applicable REACH requirements.
    • Natural vegetable tanned  (processed) leather from Ecopell - plant-derived substances are used for material’s tanning. The fact that no chemicals are used in its processing makes it very appropriate for small kids and people with allergies. It is the best choice for everyone who aims at using the most natural, eco-friendly and allergy-free materials. The non-colored leather is in its natural colours - white, off-white and ecru. These tones are derived from the vegetable tanning agents used and their inherent colour. The processing of the vegetable tanned leather is very time-consuming. Vegetable tanning agents are still in the state of research and development. These tanning substances offer many advantages but for the time being their cost remains considerably high. This is why this leather is more expensive than the chemically tanned leather.

    The sole materials are meant to render a barefoot feeling - they are light, thin, soft and offer excellent flexibility and shock absorbency. 

    Why? Feet need to feel the terrain, but without injuries. Our soles form a good cushion between foot and surface.

    What is the role of the sole? It is to protect the feet without restricting free movement, surface stimuli and natural foot development.

    Minimum toe spring - prevents from tumbling and with time the sole takes on the form of the individual toe spring.

    Hook & Loop Fastener

    When it comes to shoes, good closure is extremely important, especially when tiny little fingers play with the straps most of the time. That is why, all products that we sell use hook and loop fasteners made by the Vecro® company (enjoy the movie).

     


     

    Why Barefoot?

    Barefoot feeling is what you get from what you may have come across as "minimalist shoes". The idea behind these shoes is to get as close as possible to the barefoot walking feel, while still protecting the feet from the surrounding environment. The barefoot shoe characteristics are: wide toe area, flat, thin and flexible sole, no heel support or elevation. No orthopedic insole. Essentially, these are shoes without supporting elements. These shoes help both younger kids - from toddlers to teens - and adults. Foot pain is a modern disease; it appeared only recently with the invention of the concept of "traditional" shoes that are supposed to support the feet. Actually, such "traditional" shoes squeeze and limit the feet, causing all kinds of foot and spinal problems. When it comes down to toddlers, it is recommended that they start walking barefoot or with a shoe with a soft or thin sole that is flat and flexible. This helps the feet develop naturally. The foot of the baby consists of cartilage which in time transforms to bone. The moment the ankles and the feet are ready to take on the weight of the body, the toddler starts to walk. It is crucial for the proper development of the muscles and the tendons of the feet that all parts of the foot are involved in the process. In other words, they should not be restrained by isolating them with a hard sole, hard or strengthened heel or tight toe area. The shoes must be soft and flexible and thus they will not have any effect in deforming the soft cartilage of the foot. Almost the same applies for adults as well. It is always better to have enough space for the feet to move freely, to sense the ground and to have an equal distribution of the body weight when you walk.

    Yes. We work with manufacturers who produce barefoot walking shoes. All the products that we offer - slippers, sandals, shoes and boots - are designed and made to be as close as possible to the barefoot walking feel. Our products lack hard and stiff elements; the sole (leather or rubber) is sufficiently thin, light and elastic. The overall design of our products is flexible and lightweight, so as to help the feet to feel the terrain and allow their free movement so that they would develop properly and fully in a natural way.

    No. It is not recommended to force a child to start walking. When physically and mentally ready, the child will walk on its own. Comparisons with other children are misleading, since the age for independent walking ranges from 10 to 18 months. Some children may take longer to start walking on their own. Babies learn to walk by gripping the ground with their toes and using their heels for stability. This helps develop the muscles needed for walking and is easier to do without socks or shoes.

    Materials Used

    We only work with suppliers who make shoes of natural materials. All our products are hand-made of natural materials. We use natural leather and woollen fabrics and all materials (rubber and glue inclusive) are produced in the European Union and meet the EU requirements and standards for safety goods and comply with all applicable REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances - the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use) requirements. You can read more about the types of leather we use here.

    You should treat the shoes the way you treat any natural leather product. Your favorite natural care product will be good for our shoes as well. Daily care depends on the type of the shoe and leather.

    Even the highest quality leather has natural markings which are analogous to fingerprints. They distinguish natural leather from man-made materials. No matter how well the leather has been processed, some markings can remain. Any of these markings may be present on your shoes and this can be your assurance that you have a true top grain leather. Leather is a natural product - grain pattern and color may vary from hide to hide and within the hide.

    We use four types of soles: 1. Soft suede ones for some indoor slippers models. 2. Vibram® crepe 2 mm - New edition since 2020. For indoor slippers and moccasins, appropriate for outdoor usage as well, becase it is very durable and with a good grip. 3. Vibram® Wave for kids/toddlers indoor and as an option for outdoor shoes. It is 5 mm thick, lightweight and very flexible. 4. Vibram® Superflex material, which at 4 and 6 mm has even better grip, flexibility and wear out characteristics than Vibram® Wave. We use the 4 mm thickness for size up to EU30 and the 6 mm thickness for EU31+.

    Yes, the insole is made of natural wool and leather which are stitched together by our own shoe-makers. More information about our insole specifics can be found here.

    The insole is not stitched or glued to the shoe so that you can decide when to start or stop using it. We place double-sided bonding tape at the heel area of the insole and you may decide to mount it inside the shoes to avoid slippage and/or temporarily diminish the spare room for growth for tighter fit.

    The inner dimensions of the shoe will diminish by 2 mm.

    We use non-toxic glue which is produced in the EU and adheres to all applicable regulations. It is not harmful at all, and it bonds the details in such a way as to have no contact with the skin. Currently, there is no natural alternative on the market that would make a good bond at a reasonable price and a satisfactory technical level.

    It is the shoemaker's glue that accounts for the initially strong odor which should subdue and disappear soon after beginning of usage. We produce most of the shoes upon order, so there is not enough time for the smell to disappear before the shoes are shipped.

    We recommend using an adhesive on a Polichloroprene base, a solvent-based contact adhesive. It is very important that the shoe repairer cleans both surfaces (sole and leather - where the shoe has opened) very well before applying the glue.

    Some YETI products have the option to add extra laces (the possible different colors can be seen on the product’s photos) from a drop-down menu when ordering.

    No, for the time being we prefer to use natural leather because we believe this is the healthier choice for the feet. We are looking at some options to use natural textile (hemp, cotton) and other alternative materials, but we will need some new equipment for it, which is not among our priorities at this point.

    Model Specifics

    We have two separate categories on our site - shoes for indoor and for outdoor use.

    1.Shoes for indoor use: slippers and indoor moccasins:

    • With soft suede, thin microcellular rubber or Vibram® Wave sole.
    • No lining.
    • Suitable for indoor use at home or in the kindergarten.
    • Ideal for first steps.
    • Can be carried out in dry and hot weather.
    • Not suitable for intensive running, tree-climbing and playing outside.
    Important: Some indoor models (Robin Creme, for example) have a drop-down menu option for 5 mm Vibram® rubber sole which makes them suitable for outdoor use, as well.

    2. Shoes for outdoor use: shoes (including moccasin models)

    • With Vibram® rubber sole.
    • With thin leather lining for extra insulation and water resistance.
    • Ideal for both toddlers and children who can already walk well.
    • Suitable for intensive outdoor use - running, playing, etc

    The inner dimensions of the Leo Sheepskin model would diminish by 2-3 mm.

    The sheepskin fibers which are on the inside play the role of an insole but you can choose to purchase an additional wool-and-leather insole (inner dimensions will diminish by 2 mm).

    The shoe construction requires additional space for stitching. The construction of the sandals with open toe box, on the other hand, allows for complete usability of the entire length of the sole. Sandal models with closed toe box and/or closed back have the same limitation as the shoes.

    Furthermore, the open construction of the sandals requires that only the bottom part of the foot fit the sole, while the wider and softer parts of the foot are supported by the leather details. If the measurements you used to determine the correct size are precise, the sole length should provide enough comfort.

    Yes, you can. Just please contact us at orders@bimbam.shoes.

    Only a few of our smaller size symbols are available for this model as its straps are very narrow. You can see the symbols appropriate for Ariel here and pay the additional £5 customisation fee here.

    Yes, you can. Generally, we do not recommend an open back with the vegetable tаnned leather, as it is more tender and tends to stretch easily. This can cause the heel to slip out of the sandal. However, if the model you are looking at has lining, it will have better heel support. The lining can be chosen from the respective drop-down menu. There is no additional charge for the open-heel customization, but the pair will not be subject to our standard return policy. The open heel will add approximately 3-4 mm to the inner length of the shoe.

    Yes, it is possible. However, to free some space for it, you have to choose which detail to be removed - the one in front of the toes or the one attached to the straps. Take note that the customised pair will no longer be subject to our standard return policy.

    Usage temperature range varies for different body and activity types and may also depend on the socks. Generally, the sheepskin lining will provide even greater warmth than the woolen one. The range can vary from 0 to -15 °C.

    Our Yeti models are produced in waterproof leather but even with the high quality stitching and excellent quality of the material, the models are not water-resistant in rain and snow, as water can get inside from the upper part of the shoes where the hand-stitching is. Of course, you can choose to use an impregnating product all over any and all shoes that we offer for additional protection.

    Yeti and Dingo are models with completely different constructions and designs. The sheepskin hair on the Dingo is longer than that of Yeti’s lining. Yeti's sole is glued and stitched to one big leather and wool or sheepskin detail which embraces the feet. Yeti’s sole is curved and footprint-shaped, while Dingo’s sole is wide and nearly oval - more than 1.5 cm of Dingo's sole length and width are not usable at all due to its design and stitching requirements. Yeti models are produced in waterproof leather. Yeti boots can be produced with double-layer soles. Dingo is lighter in weight compared to Yeti with sheepskin and double-layer sole.

    Wool lining is a fabric (wool fleece), while sheepskin lining is leather with hairs. Wool lining takes about 2-3 mm off of the inner space, while sheepskin lining occupies about 3-4 mm. Sheepskin lining gives even better insulation against lower temperatures. Sheepskin is more durable to the inside friction between the lining and the feet. Sheepskin absorbs more water (moisture) compared to Wool lining.

    Customizations

    You can add a symbol, create your own colour combination, have a name/word/number written or request width customisations (consult with us first). All customisation options are found on our site. Customised products will not be subject to our standard return policy.

    You can add a symbol, create your own colour combination, have a name/word/number written or request width customisations (consult with us first). All customisation options are found on our site. Customised products will not be subject to our standard return policy.

    No, the customisation cost includes a total of two symbols for both shoes - even if they are different. Contact us at orders@bimbam.shoes for that.

    We suggest that you choose one of our models and contact us to discuss the possible slight modifications. Producing your own design will be significantly more expensive, as we will have to order new molds and knives, make new patterns, manufacture a prototype, etc.

    Yes, the old sole can be replaced under the following conditions: Some of our soles are stitched and glued to the leather upper and it is risky to replace them as this may damage the leather material. Similarly, the soles that are only glued to the leather upper can be replaced, but there is the risk of tearing off the leather insole. Another approach is to grind off the old soles and glue them to the new ones so that the leather material bears no damage. There are two options: Order a pair of soles - first contact us for order placement instructions. Then, you can use a good cobbler who can grind off the old soles to 2-3 mm thickness and glue the new ones to the old soles - or, s/he can try to replace them entirely. Return the pair to us and we will replace the soles for free. Still, there will be your delivery costs both ways and it is possible that these costs are higher than the repair at a cobbler workshop around your place of living.

    Measurements

    No, the customisation cost includes a total of two symbols for both shoes - even if they are different.

    When taking measurements, follow the instructions given on the product pages. Different models have different sizing. Stretch the tape out when taking length and width measures, overlap tightly when measuring the circumference. Do not round up or down - precise measurements are needed to determine the correct size. We need all three of the above parameters (especially length and circumference) in order to advise you better. Do not add mm/cm for spare room to the measurements you provide us with. Your precisely taken measures must fall within the given length range (column ‘RECOMMENDED FEET LENGTH) and be equal to or less than the upper circumference limit (column ‘MAXIMUM CIRCUMFERENCE TOES’) in the model’s measurement table when deciding on the correct size. Information about size conversions, etc. can be found on each product page. If in doubt, contact us at orders@bimbam.shoes before making your order.

    No, the customisation cost includes a total of two symbols for both shoes - even if they are different.

    The spare room is designated to account for foot growth, usage of socks, wiggle room.

    Ordering

    If you have a customer account, you can change your delivery address there. If you have made your order as a guest, you can contact us via email or chat before we ship your order, and we will ship it to the address you want.

    Well, everything about our processes comes down to customer experience. The entire order life cycle is built around customer expectations and the quality of both our product and customer service. Every order is examined by multiple operators at multiple stages. Here is a simplified overview of our process. Basically, after you place your order, it enters our system where a member of our support team manually reviews all aspects of the order. If everything is clear, they will send you an email, confirming the details of the order and when the order will be shipped. If your item is available in stock, we will send it to you on the next working day. If the shoes are not available, we will need to produce it. During the review of your order, our support team checks the details of order for inconsistencies. This is where the person handling the order goes through your order history and all available communication with you to compare the details such as sizes, colours, strapping, etc. from your previous orders with the current order, handles any notes that might be attached to the order or to a separate email. This is done to make sure that you will receive exactly what you need. If we have any questions or comments, the support operator will include them in the confirmation email. The order will then enter a pending status and its development will be checked daily. In some cases, we may contact you by phone to ensure a faster confirmation process. At this point the order is sent into production, and the status of order changes to "In production". A curious fact is that there are constantly 300-500 pairs in different stages of production every week. This number increases in the busiest periods. In the production stage the different details for your shoes and the soles are first cut. Then, they go through different production stages, where a number of operations are done to sew the details together. Finally, the sole is attached, and the shoes are placed in a mold for at least 12 hours. You can see a short video on how moccasins are made on our Youtube channel. The production QA manager examines the pair and the materials for defects at every stage of the production process. For example, during the cutting stage, the leather is carefully examined to ensure that the details that are cut out do not contain defects, since natural leather always has some defects. At the rest of the stages, we ensure that the operators actually did their job to the highest standard. When the shoes are ready, a final inspection is made and they are sent back to the support and packaging teams. At this stage, the support operator handling the order once again examines the shoes to make sure that everything was done correctly. If yes, the shoes are packaged and prepared for shipping. If something is wrong, support will contact you with an explanation with what has gone wrong and will offer you additional options. For example, if the straps on a pair of boots are made in different colours than what you ordered, we may offer you the pair at a discounted price, or you may want us to produce a new pair. If you choose a new pair, we will prioritise it over the current orders in production and will ship it as soon as possible. When the order is ready for shipping it is distributed accordingly.

    Delivery

    Packages are generally dispatched within 1 business day after the products are available in-stock. Some of the products we already have in stock, and these can be shipped on the next business day. Others have to be produced. You can find more information on the entire life cycle of an order in a separate FAQ. The shipping period is from 3-5 days. Which means that it will take up to 2-3 weeks in total from when you place your order until you receive it. You can read more about terms and conditions on our site.
