If choosing the right outfit for a special event it’s hard, picking the perfect shoes is also a great mission. Christening is a charged moment when everything needs to be impeccable. From the right location for the after-party to the clothes the baby will wear, to the preparations for the church, things are complicated. At least when it comes to baptism shoes we can un-complicate them.
Let’s see what the perfect shoes for an amazing baptism should look like and how to find them.
About Christening Clothes
Christening represents a type of Baptism in which the new baby will be given a Christian name and will be received in the Church. This entire ceremony is considered a holy one and requires several steps:
- The baby will be given a Christian name by his Godparents
- The priest will use holy water to baptize the child either through immersion or by sprinkling it over his head
- The priest will also perform the ritual by praying and reciting a sermon from the Bible.
Considering the majesty of the moment, the baby’s clothes need to be in a certain way and so do his shoes and accessories. He or she will need to wear white clothes.
The girls will wear christening gowns or pretty white dresses and the boys can also wear special christening outfits, suits, or gowns.
When it comes to christening fashion, things are pretty strict only regarding colors. Otherwise, you can dress the children however you like considering the type of ceremony involved.
How to choose the right shoes?
Choosing the right pair of shoes for your child is not an easy task. While infants don’t need shoes, toddlers are a different story altogether.
You’ll need to take into account several factors when shopping for shoes for your baby:
- The right size of the shoe
If the shoe is a size too large, the baby risks remaining without them when the crawls or attempts to walk. If the size is too small, then his feet will hurt. So, measure his foot from the heel to the top of his fingers on paper and add a centimeter. Don’t measure your child sitting down, bring him or her to her feet for the right measurements and measure both feet always. The baby will grow into the shoes so you need to find the right size.
- The right material
Infants can wear shoes that are not made for walking, with a soft sole, made from soft fabrics, just to cover their feet. But toddlers will need first walkers’ shoes made of natural materials that keep their foot steady while he attempts the first steps.
The material needs to be breathable and not retain humidity. Also, they need to be light and allow you to bend the shoe in your hand effortlessly.
- The right sole
This is one important aspect, especially for the first steps. The sole needs to be flexible, but sturdy and keep his little feet stable on the ground.
The insole is best to be made from natural materials, such as leather, and it’s good if it’s detachable.
About Christening Shoes
Shoes are a big part of a child’s wardrobe, and the baby baptism shoes are no exception.
Since a child can be a newborn or a toddler by the time he or she is baptized, you need to take into consideration that fact when you choose the shoes.
If he or she is not walking yet, the best type of shoes is the soft sole ones. Little girls, can have little decorations and rhinestones.
If they are already walking, shoes made for the first steps are a good choice.
Because the baby will also be attending the party given in his honor, see that the shoes are comfortable enough for him to wear them through the party.
Also, you need to think of the weather and the season. While inside the Church and the party location is nice and warm, outside can be a stormy winter. Therefore, have another pair ready for when you go outside. The same goes if the baptism is held on a hot summer day. It’s best if you choose light, breathable materials.

As a symbol of forgiveness and cleansing from sin, baptism represents faith in Jesus Christ as the cause of baptism
In its simplest form, baptism refers to the ceremony of a person being admitted into Christianity. It symbolizes the death of their sinful lifestyle, the washing away of their sins, and the beginning of a new life under the Holy Spirit.
Baptism is the ritual of accepting an individual into a Christian community or church. It signifies clearing of the sins by immersing the individual in water or by pouring water on or sprinkling holy water on the individual.
In Christian belief, babies are born with original sin, and baptism cleanses them, resulting in their adoption as children of God and accession to the priesthood of Christ.
Baptism with water indicates that you are willing to follow Jesus Christ and live according to His will. When you obey his words and command Water Baptism symbolizes your first act of obedience after submitting to his will.
