Pippo are a new footwear company, launching soon in the UK.
The Pippo Footwear brand offers a range of beautifully made, well-fitted and stylish shoes for children.
The company was the idea of husband and wife team Rob and Jude Gallacher who found choosing the right footwear for their daughter a difficult task. Frustrated by the lack of good quality and reasonably priced footwear available to buy, they began to design footwear that they considered to be exciting and fun.
Rob and Jude noticed that the best shoes on the market were designed by European brands but had very high prices, which made them impractical or out of reach of most working parents.
Therefore they decided to draw upon European culture for their influence, they wanted Pippo shoes to have a different style and speak more about a lifestyle choice too. Each Pippo shoe is specially designed to look and feel great, using soft and durable materials to ensure that children can enjoy the benefits of wearing good footwear too.
The brand name Pippo is actually an abbreviation of the Italian boys’ name Filippo but it is not a name that appears in the family anywhere. “It was a cute and fun name, and we love the way it sounds,” said Jude.

Laura’s general feelings on the Pippo Shoes…
We love these shoes!
We have been reviewing a lilac pair of Pippo Shoes with a beautiful little daisy design and they look gorgeous with all of Sophie’s outfits .
They have thick rubber soles which are non-slip and light in colour. The daisy detail and stitching, which is in a beautiful yellow colour, is of a very high standard.
They are very sturdy and durable yet also so pretty, feminine and dainty.
I would say that these shoes are slightly roomier than an average size 8 but my daughter does have very narrow feet.
Up until now we have bought her shoes from a popular high street store but I just love how these are that little bit different and unique and we will definitely be buying more in the future.
Have a look at the Pippo Footwear website where you will find loads more of these beautiful shoes.
