The Inspiration Behind Toe Jamm’s Kids’ Shoes

From their downtown Los Angeles studio, Toe Jamm designers Yasmina Cadiz and Amanda Real are crafting baby shoes that evoke a time when a child’s first pair was a treasured keepsake. Using artisanal techniques, the 3-year-old brand’s sophisticated leather styles are the antithesis of mass production. And for their Atelier limited-edition collection, launching in spring, Cadiz and Real experimented with organic forms and raw textures. The duo, who also oversee the Downtown Design League women’s brand, offer a glimpse into their creative process.
