The arrival of these darling little sandals brought lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from the reception staff at my Podiatry clinic, as they are just so cute! As a Podiatrist, I’m particularly impressed with the design structure – this shoe clings to the infant’s foot to keep the shoe from slipping off, while the soft, malleable sole allows for 100 per cent flexion of the foot. The sole is particularly thin and flat, so sensory perception from the ground would be almost identical to being barefooted. This is vital to the natural growth of baby’s foot, and development of their proprioception and ankle strength.
These sandals are perfect for summer – breathable, sockless, sweat proof, smell proof, lightweight and easy to stuff into backpacks or strollers, when baby wants to go barefoot!
