If you’ve taken the time to browse our archives, you’re now we’re suckers for a gorgeous paid of baby booties! So really it shouldn’t surprise you that we were totally blow away by these crochet Nike inspired baby booties we found over at Our Daily Ideas. After all, just because you’re only just taking your first steps doesn’t mean you can’t do so in style, right?
The way we see it, these crochet cuties are so much better than the real deal in so many ways. First of all, there’s the fact that they cost so much less to make than a real pair of Nikes would retail for. Next up, as they’ve made from the softest and snuggliest yarn from top to bottom, they’re so much more caring and comfortable than real baby sneakers could ever be. Last but not least, there’s nothing in the world that means more than a gift you make by hand for someone you care about – DIY crochet booties ticking all the right boxes and then some.
