Brother Vellies arrive at local retailers
We were totally impressed when Brooklyn-based Brother Vellies introduced its new line of infant shoes last summer. (And not just because they collaborate with artisans in South Africa and Namibia to produce the handmade vegetable-dyed leather shoes and boots.) Now, it's awesome to see that the collection, previously only available online, has landed at Sweet William’s SoHo (85 Kenmare St.) and Brooklyn (324 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg) locations. Starting this week you can try and buy styles from the new spring line, including these neon yellow toe caps, a snakeskin version (pictured), and a metallic pair. The shoes are $95 a pair and start at size 6 months.
