Our Story

So how did Oscars come about? The best person to answer that is our founder Dea Manassen.

“Oscars for Kids came to life after my mother, who lives in Brazil sent my son Oscar a beautiful pair of red loafers which she found on a market in her travels. Oscar loved them, he imagined all the places they had been and would go, soon they became his most loved shoes taking him soaring to the moon, exploring the deep dark jungles of Peru and even carousing on a pirate ship.

When he grew out of them I searched everywhere for a similar pair with no luck. It was then that I decided to create my own range of little loafers for big adventures.

I wanted them to be super comfortable, so created them originally in suede and now in the softest leather. They are all hand made so they are beautifully finished, all the quality of European products with fresh Australian styling.

We are now stocked in boutiques and department stores everywhere and have had great comments from mums everywhere.

We hope you fall in love with them too.
