Stay grounded

Children should be allowed to run barefoot as much as possible, as long as the environment is safe. The ideal shoe should be flexible, lightweight and thin to promote sensory and motor development. When your child can wiggle their toes and are comfortable in their shoes, you’ve found the right fit!

If you’re unsure, it’s best to see a healthcare provider.
