Did you know?

Babies don’t really need shoes until they take their first steps outside. The newest guidelines stress the importance of letting babies walk barefoot as often as you can. This will help those tiny feet develop freely as well as gain strength and balance. Tempted as you may be to buy adorable baby booties, anti-slip socks are a better solution indoors.

When choosing first walking shoes for the outdoors, try to find a pair with elastic soles, made of soft, breathable material.

Remember that getting the right fit is important for everyone but it is vital in case of developing feet. Wrong sized shoes can actually harm your baby by causing long-term damage to their bones and joints.

What aspects matter to you when you are shopping for shoes for your children?
