This has been a long time coming (nearly 10 months of behind-the-scenes work!) so I’m thrilled to finally announce that the new Wizard Boots are here! And the redesign was SO worth the wait.

What changes were made?

Based on your feedback, I wanted to make the Wizard Boots more accommodating to the myriad of baby proportions out there. I also wanted to fix some weak spots in the design to make them more durable and robust.

More rugged construction

The new Wizard Boots now have a zig-zag stitch around the ankle to better secure the elastic and allow for more flexibility in the seam, eliminating any pulling on baby’s skin.wizard boots merino wool baby socks baby booties bowen island bc

We’ve also changed the construction to reinforce the front and back seams around the ankle, and changed the front seam to a flat-lock stitch which looks so beautiful and is a lot more durable.

Scaled up to 5 sizes

Due to customer demand, the Wizard Boots now come in 5 sizes! They are: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 2T, and 3T.wizard boots merino wool baby socks baby booties bowen island bc

More consistent sizing, coordinating with shoe sizes

I’ve made some small adjustments to the pattern to improve consistency among the sizing. And they now coincide with standard shoe sizes for ease! I have updated the Size Chart for easy reference.

Size & content label is now printed on the inside

We are now printing the size and content label right on the inside of the sock so there will be no more wondering what size you bought once you remove the tag.

On the surface the Wizard Boots might not look all that different, but these changes took a lot of creative thinking, experimentation, and time on the part of both myself and my manufacturer. We’re so pleased to now offer you a product with even more integrity, usefulness, and elegance!

I’m pleased to say we have our most popular colours back in stock for fall – Moroccan, Nova Red, and Purple, along with all Wizard Hoodie sizes too. CLICK HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT!
