Closed toe summer shoes for a toddler
They are ankle high with proper heel support that keeps ankles supported.
Those are truly proper sandals for a toddler with pronation and weak ankles.
Great sandals for toddler who learns to stand and walk.
Those sandals are what we put on toddler in Europe
We never ever put low quality sandals on our toddler as they will destroy kids feet and posture.
Only sandals made in Europe are proper and supportive.
Footwear for kids is regulated by European Ministry of Health so no cheap sandals are allowed for sale in any store in Europe.
Shoes for kids are viewed as developmental need so money is spent on local supportive shoes.
Every pediatrician will tell you that in Europe - only best closed toe shoes for a child.
Europe does not have business of orthodics like USA does.
Money is spent on good shoes for toddler and by the time they are teens they end up with well formed feet and great posture.
All orthopedic problems kids experience are due to low quality shoes - pronation, pigeon toes, flat feet, weak ankles.
Pronation is the most significant as not only feet are affected but also body gait.
Since feet are pronated whole body shifts (either left or right shoulder gets lower) and whole posture shifts since feet shift and pronated ankles as well.
There is no cure for that no surgery, adult will stay with affected body gait till rest of his or her life.
Pain in the feet, knees, posture will be present entire life.
Thus that is why we Europeans always spent money on good shoes for a child especially.
