NEW YORK, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Baby, pregnancy and parenting industry leader Rosie Pope launches her debut shoe collection for babies and toddlers this March. Adding to her growing collection of maternity, nursing, baby apparel and accessory lines, Rosie Pope teamed up with longtime partner McCubbin Hosiery as licensee and manufacturer for the collection. Rosie has supported the company for years as the leading choice in children's footwear, priding itself on high-quality designs made specifically for growing feet.
Remaining true to the Rosie Pope brand, her inspiration for the debut collection integrates playful storytelling with whimsical, ethereal details and styles resembling animals, angels and fun prints. Small illustrations and encouraging phrases like "shoot for the moon" underneath the soles make dressing up a fun, expressive adventure for both parents and their little ones.
"Launching shoes has been a dream of mine for quite some time, and I'm thrilled to partner with McCubbin for this natural extension of the brand." Rosie adds, "We wanted to offer styles that create a sense of wonder and imagination. Hopefully little ones have as much fun wearing them as we did designing them."
The newest collection offers a variety of footwear styles for infants ranging from newborn to one year. The soft-soled styles are made with comfortable, high quality materials for growing feet and include an elastic ankle, making shoes easy to put on and secure enough to stay on active infants. Additionally, Rosie's collection will offer a variety of socks ranging from newborn up to two years.
"As a supporter of Rosie Pope for years, we are thrilled to partner for her first footwear and hosiery collection," says President David McCubbin. "Rosie knows exactly what moms and babies want, and we're confident her newest initiative will resonate positively with our customers."
Rosie Pope's brand continues to grow as a one-stop shop for mothers ranging from maternity apparel to baby goods while providing expert advice to new parents at every stage.
Each pair in the collection retails for under $20.00 and will be available at Von Maur, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, Amazon.com, RosiePope.com, select boutiques and additional department stores nationwide.
