History of the Boni&Sidonie company
In May 2013, not finding quality leather shoes for my children on the internet, we decided to launch our own French brand of children's shoes: Boni&Sidonie. We have created an online shopping website www.boniclassic.com.
In order to be certain of the quality of the shoes and leather, we favor Spanish and Portuguese manufacture in order to be as close as possible to our factories. We visited several factories of children's shoes and boots in Spain. They are made in a fair way under excellent working conditions that we observe during our travels. We have selected three workshops to launch our brand. These workshops are located in the south of Spain. They are renowned for their know-how and guarantee impeccable quality with leathers free of dangerous products.
One of the workshops specializes in baby slippers, father and son work together with passion below their home, during our trip we found authentic craftsmanship unfortunately often lost in France. We thus offer the guarantee of high-end and timeless shoes and boots for babies and children that respect the growth of the feet. We have also established a partnership with the Start Rite brand, the famous English brand existing since 1792, official supplier of the English royal family.
In July 2013, to launch our site www.boniclassic.com, we had more than 2,000 pairs of shoes manufactured in Spain; half from Start Rite and the other half from Boni&Sidonie.
Favor your children's feet.
It is important that our children have shoes that allow the feet to breathe and be supported. That's why we only offer soft leather shoes with a non-slip sole to facilitate walking and smooth foot growth. The insoles are also made of leather for the arch of the foot. For winter, we offer, for example, pretty warm suede boots with real sheep's wool interior, they are treated for rain and waterproof, and also a wide range of moccasins.
It is important that our children have shoes that allow the feet to breathe and be supported. In summer, we offer a wide choice of sandals, ballet flats and soft moccasins, in quality leather.
The leathers of the shoes and boots are of high quality and guaranteed without chrome 6, important information, because a lot of shoes manufactured outside Europe contain this highly carcinogenic product. We are of course against synthetic leathers that do not let children's feet breathe.
Without being retrograde, it is possible today to make our children wear pretty, solid and leather shoes. When it comes to shoe design, we think a lot about a simple, elegant and classic style. We are listening to all our customers in France and elsewhere! We are not a brand of shoes only for bcbg and bobo! ;)
We have a hundred different models, ranging from the very classic and timeless style of Start-Rite and Boni&Sidonie to boots and ankle boots, including loafers, ballet flats and sandals. You will find in our size guide the measurement of your child's feet corresponding to the exact size. For our shoes, we start from size 17 and finish at size 42. Some shoes are easy to put on thanks to their buckle or hook-and-loop closure.
