Morgan & Milo! Magnificent!

We love Morgan & Milo. This company is all about shoes for kids that are playful, fun and whimsical...just like kids!

"...Morgan & Milo captures the essential blend of fashion and function. It's the perfect choice for the practical, modern parent who doesn't want to compromise on style, quality and price..."

Morgan & Milo focuses on designing shoes with classic taste, playful detailings and awesome comfort and fit. They are perfect for school, the playground, the park and everywhere in between!

For the wee ones... Infant Avery II & Infant Avril Mary Jane
(sizes US 4 to 7)

Great for the little ones who are just starting to explore the world. These shoes are inspired by m&m's classic sneakers for bigger kids and provide a soft, flexible sole for optimal movement.

LTT Slip-On for Boys
(sizes US 7-2)

Morgan & Milo's famous lace to toe sneakers in a slip-on style. The madras pattern on a canvas upper is super uber cute, as well as super functional on the playground. Just slip it on and seize the day! (and if you ask us, we think this would be cute on girls too!)

Woodstock Mary Jane for Girls
(sizes US 11-2)

This mary jane is an exciting style from m&m. Morgan & Milo is introducing ECOvulc Natural Rubber in the Woodstock’s crepe outsole, which is flexible, slip-resistant, and comfy. Hooray for green shoes!

There are many, MANY more styles from Morgan & Milo, so stop by and see them today. Thanks for reading, Sole Foodies!

Love, Sole Food

Tickle Me COLOR!

What do you think of when you hear “spring”? Here at Sole Food, we think warmer temperatures, sunshine and color, color, COLOR! Jump out of winter hibernation and frolic in our new and very bright styles for spring! Here’s a sampling of what we have waiting for you here at Sole Food...

Gee WaWa’s Bold Heel
An all-leather shoe, with a beautiful cherry red and an oh-so-cute t-strap. With just a little bit of lift, this comfy shoe will look great with a floral dress or cropped pants.

Seychelles’ Box Step Pump
Bring sunshine to anywhere you go! In a bright and happy yellow, this pretty little pump has fantastic patterns and a cushion sole.

Miz Mooz’s Haru Heel
Very bold, with great hardware detailing and a platform for that little extra lift! Featured here in a nice green, we also have it in brown.

Camper’s Leia Peep Toe
Stand out with this great turquoise flat! Match it up with our bright pashmina scarves and you’ll be ready for spring.

So what are you waiting for? Come on in and let's get Spring rolling! See you soon :D
