‘We believe that children’s shoes should be just as stylish as their mums,’ Astrid Andreassen.
Every so pretty, soft and comfortable, the ‘Lille Elskling’ leather slippers by A. Andreassen are perfect for little feet this summer. Inspired by heritage Scandinavian crafts, we love the metallic white or blue woven with silver leather.
Norwegian footwear designer, Astrid Andreassen, brand A. Andreassen combines the subtle elegance of Scandinavian design with skilled hand craftsmanship, making the humble slipper shoe super desirable.
The children’s range is called ‘Lille Elskling’ that is Norwegian for little darling and the idea behind the latest Elskling collection sprung from the traditional woven paper ornament that children in Scandinavia make at Christmas time. These heart shaped paper baskets are filled with sweets and hung on the tree for little treats throughout the festive season. The heart becomes a simple but bold motif through out this collection that remind us the warmth of home. With the wearer’s utmost comfort in mind, the padded foot bed is made with the latest memory foam technology which melds itself to the shape of your foot giving maximum comfort and relieves pressure from the balls of your feet.
For Andreassen, company ethics and quality are all important. All materials used in the slippers are sourced responsibly from Italy and the slippers are manufactured by traditional, family run, footwear specialists in Portugal. And if mum’s are looking at the Lille Eskling slippers thinking they would like some of the same, A. Andreassen has a shoe range for adults too, as well as an accessories collection.
