Kids' shoes – barefoot shoes

We consider shoes in sizes 16-36 to be children's shoes. We have several thousand pairs of healthy barefoot shoes for girls and boys in stock. After taking delivery, you can return the unsuitable shoes within 3 weeks.

Why are children's shoes crucial?

From birth to school age, children undergo a gradual ossification of the skeleton, when the soft cartilaginous base changes into hard bone. Any poor movement patterns or deformities of the foot are acquired by the child by age 6, and these will shape the skeleton for the rest of the child's life. According to data from the Physioclinic, over 90% of children are born with healthy feet, but by the time they enter first grade, over 95% of children have foot deformities! These alarming figures are mainly due to the cheap and inappropriate footwear that parents buy for their children.

What kind of children's shoes to buy?

You need children's shoes that limit the natural development of the foot as little as possible. Look for the following features:

  • they fit in the ankle, but are roomy in the toe - so that the foot does not slip in the shoe, but the toes have enough space in length and width to grow and stretch
  • flexible in all directions - the overall softness of the shoe flexes well around uneven surfaces, allowing the foot to unwind properly and respond naturally to changing surfaces
  • they have a flat sole - the absence of a heel or raised toe keeps the body's centre of gravity in the optimal centre

Barefoot shoes for children have a roomier toe, a thinner and more flexible sole without a heel and are lighter in general, making them a suitable choice for the first steps and subsequent development of the child's foot.

When to buy children's shoes?

Each child's development is individual, but in general the following can be recommended for the first shoes:

  1. do not give children any shoes until they have spent most of their waking hours walking in an open space
  2. keep the child completely barefoot (watch out for socks) even then, wherever the environment permits
  3. check the size of the child's foot and shoes regularly and get a larger size in time (when there is less than 4-5 mm of space left in the shoe)

How to choose children's shoes?

You don't have to torment a restless child with a long shoe fitting in the store, buy online instead and try everything out from the comfort of your home. The choice is easy:

  1. carefully measure the length and width of the child's foot (e.g. by drawing on paper)
  2. add an oversize of 10-12 mm (or 5-9 mm for the very first shoe) to give the child room in the shoe
  3. add both numbers and filter the desired internal dimensions of the shoes in the desired category
  4. optionally add other parameters to the filter, such as colour, shoe type, manufacturer, season, etc., or get inspiration for differences in shoes in comparison reviews
