Raising kids is expensive! When you factor in the speed in which they outgrow their clothes and shoes you can almost lose your mind! Luckily, when it comes to purchasing shoes for your baby, one pair will last you a lot longer than you think. How? Shupeas are shoes that grow with your baby from age 0 to 24 months.
Designed by Galit Harari, a mother of two, Shupeas expand and adjust with babies’ growing feet. Their patent-pending design uses Velcro fasteners on the back of the shoe that adjust the width of the shoe and keep the shoes securely in place. In front, there’s an elastic medallion lock that expands the length of the shoe, creating a customized fit. Shupeas are recommended by both pediatricians and podiatrists.
The collection comes in both leather and vegan shoes. The boys’ collection includes designs such as a soccer ball and a rocket, while the girls’ collection includes a butterfly and a cupcake. There is also a unisex collection with designs such as a duck and a whale.
You can buy Shupeas online here for $36.00. Here is a store locator.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature as well as a Law Degree, but writing about nutrition and helping families eat better is her true passion. She grew up in both California and Israel, which explains her love for California cuisine (fresh, local ingredients), as well as Mediterranean food (flavorful, heart-healthy ingredients). Maytal is a stay-at-home mom to two kids (ages 5 & 3) and works hard to ensure they eat healthy, unprocessed food, while trying to make it as delicious as possible. Married to a vegetarian and being a pescetarian herself, this can be quite a challenge. On an ordinary night at her dinner table, you can hear things like “More cauliflower, please!”, “How come I didn’t get a lot of tomato?” and “Fish oil! Yaaaay!”
