Early Days My Baba 26 September, 2014 Fashion & Beauty, Living Early Days is a true family business and I love it. Two brothers started the shoe company in the early 50’s and passed it on to their two sons. They use the softest Italian leather which goes through serious quality control to make sure they make the perfect shoe. Each one is made by hand so each component is cut out using a cutting press and strip knife. Once ready, they’re meticulously stitched for the perfect fit. I wish my children could still squeeze in to these gorgeous shoes but I do know a certain Prince who’s loving them!
