Oppi shoe size guide
Every baby born has their own unique weight, size and shape. We've done some research to understand the averages which has helped us set our Oppi shoe sizes.
All Oppi shoes are especially designed for pre-walking babies.
We have design two styles of Oppi boots:
- Our 0-3 month boots are suitable for newborns. They are made from upcycled knitted cashmere and wool. Designed with long ankle cuffs they keep the whole of the lower leg warm.
- Our 3-6 months size boots are made from upcycled woven wool, and they have a soft velcro fastening.
The size chart above can be used as your measure. Oppi boots are perfect for pre-crawling and crawling babies. They have been tried and tested to stay on toes and keep feet warm.
Packing and postage
Each Oppi item is beautifully handwrapped before it is shipped.
We send our UK packages by Royal Mail First Class delivery: £4
International postage and Royal Mail Signed For options are available at the checkout.
Caring for your Oppi babywear
Cotton items (Oppi shoes)
Oppi baby shoes have been wash tested during design development and we are happy to let you pop them in the washing machine with your other cotton garments.
Think about the environment, though. Only wash when needed, let fresh air do the drying and a medium iron will work just fine.
Wool items (Oppi boots)
We recommend that you sponge clean Oppi boots; wool always needs that extra bit of care. Warm water and some mild washing detergent should do the trick, and then let them air dry.

Sending your Oppi gift straight to the recipient
We will be launching this option shortly.
Until then, however, do let us know via email if you would like us to send your gift directly, because we would be happy to do so. You would just need to let us know the delivery address.
All Oppi babywear is handmade. Although we take great care to ensure everything is finished to the highest standard - we're still only human. If you're not completely happy with your Oppi product, please get in touch and we will do whatever we can to make things better again.
A few reassuring things to remember:
Product runs are small, for a reason. Therefore prints and patterns may vary from the photo due to the pattern cutting layout. For Oppi shoes, the layout of fabric means that each individual shoe is unique, even within a pair.
All calico is Fairtrade or fairly traded, handwoven and unbleached. Flecks of colour and raised threads are part of the natural charm of the fabric and need not be seen as flaws. However, if you think that these interfere too much with the character of the garment, we'll happily take the item back again, and issue you a refund. Just ensure they're in their original packaging, unused, untampered with and unworn.
If you wish to replace the Oppi item with a new one, please be aware that we may not be able to replace like-fabric for like-fabric due to short product runs. If this is the case - let's talk about what you would like to happen.
