Our Story

  • Hello, I'm Maree (mum to boys)

    I'm a mumpreneur and the chick behind the scenes.

    BEARBA means baby and it was what I was called growing up as a little girl, so the name just stuck!

    Here at BEARBA, we specialise in sock shoes for little feet. They're a hybrid sock shoe made from cotton and rubber.

    As a mum of 3, I really struggled to find shoes for my little ones. They were either too bulky, too heavy, too expensive, or they would just fall off the feet. Sound familiar? Well, it drove me crazy and this meant most of the time, the boys were barefoot.

    While searching long and hard to find the perfect shoe for my little ones. I came across the sock shoe.

    OH MY GOODNESS. GAME CHANGER

    When I first came across these amazing sock shoes,  my kids lived in them. So I wanted to spread the word to as many parents as possible about how amazing these sock shoes are, and BEARBA was born! 

    Based on the beautiful Gold Coast,a mum to boys who inspired me to make this all happen.


    Why finding the right shoe for little feet is so important!

     When your child is learning to walk, they receive important sensory information from the soles of their feet touching the ground. While barefoot walking is best, it's not always practical.

    This is why our sock shoes are an excellent option for your little ones when they first start taking those first steps! 

    Australian podiatrists recommend that first time walkers should be in soft-soled shoes as much as possible, so they can still feel and touch with their feet whilst developing muscle strength. Our sock shoes are great for little ones as they have a flat flexible sole with rubber which helps protect their feet for both indoor and outdoor play.

    They fit like a sock and protects like a shoe.
