Welcome to Joe`s Toes!Amanda in Joe's Toes studio

We think you'll love Joe's Toes. Whether you buy for yourself, to give as a gift or purchase ready made, our easy-to-make kits are fun to put together and great to wear. We have slipper kits to suit all ages, from our tiny newborn knit and crochet kits up to a men's size 14 (that's a U.S. ladies' size 16!).
