The legs of pregnant women tend to swell and this can modify lastingly the volume, width and length of their feet. We know from own experience that it is pretty difficult to find suitable shoes which can accommodate foot edema during pregnancy.
Our shoes can be worn both during and after the pregnancy, as they combine all important criteria which come into question with regard to maternity shoes: They have an anatomic form, a comfortable width, smart details which allow a customized use, and a moderate heel height.
Handcrafted from premium materials in a traditional family-run shoe factory in Portugal, our maternity booties are designed for your comfort and wellbeing during and after the pregnancy. The playful combination of genuine and perforated suede leather convey the booties their unique, original look. They are lined with natural leather, so that your feet will never be wet or cold.
Pregnidos Alpha have an anatomic form, a rounded front and a comfortable width to ensure proper accommodation for your feet, as well as toe freedom and enhanced stability.
The wide U-cut of the shoe front allows for a generous opening and ease of use, together with the foldable tongue. The booties have a practical double closure system: You can use the side zipper to quickly put the shoes on and off, while the elastic laces with stoppers help you to adjust easily the volume as needed.
The rubber soles have a moderate wedge height* and they elegantly match the uppers in the same color. The soles surface contains profiled logo elements which, additionally to their rubbery consistence, ensure that your walk on slippery grounds due to rain, snow or ice remains safe at all times. In order to reduce the use of chemicals in our shoes** we chose just to hand-stitch the soles to the leather uppers, without using any glue.
*We have opted for wedge soles as this is the most comfortable sole form, if kept in a moderate height. They give a good support to the pregnant body which has a changed biomechanical axis, and offer pleasant comfort after the pregnancy as well. (Did you know that the wedges were originally invented by the genius shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo?)
**The spring and summer collections, as they can be worn barefoot as well, will exclusively contain healthy materials, respectively chrome-free leathers.
The booties are offered with an extra pair of removable insoles which additionally help to adjust the volume, depending if the feet are swollen or not. When not used, the insoles can be stored in their cotton dustbag and kept in the handbag.
