Closed style kids sandals for proper foot support.
Ankle height reinforced heel best high tops for a toddler.
Profiled soles for a new walker since in Europe no flat sandals are ever produced.
All kids footwear manufactured in Europe is orthopedic and regulated by European Union Ministry of Health
The reason is that kids shoes are viewed as health product rather then fashion.
Every baby in Europe wears quality shoes as those and ends up with perfectly formed feet and posture.
If child wears low quality shoes with zero ankle and arch support then her feet will deform over time.
Worst sandals on the planet - Crocs or Keens - those are horrible foot deforming innovations.
We cannot even call them shoes since they are not shoes.
Since when rubber shoe with zero ankle support, zero orthopedic arch will provided needed support to your toddler feet?
They smell horribly since they made out of rubber.
Kids feet perspire greatly more then adults thus they do need supportive leather shoes at all times.
Please Note: this style runs big so order size smaller.
The soles on those sandals run big so store clients bought one size smaller.
