Barefoot or Crawling Shoes?
Crawling shoes and first walkers serve primarily to protect the feet, as is the case with us adults! However, children’s feet are much more tender and flexible. The bone structure and muscles have yet to develop. Shoes that are too tight or unsuitable can negatively affect the development of the feet.
Your child starts to train the muscles of the legs and feet as early as the first few months after birth. It kicks and pushes itself off. To protect the tender skin, we recommend our Carponi crawling shoes, which cling to your feet like a second skin. The high-quality, luxurious aniline leather has a nice soft and warm feel. The open-pored structure enables ventilation of the feet and supports the transport of moisture.
As soon as your child starts crawling, knees and feet are constantly strained. The right clothing and shoes protect the skin from scratches and cold floor coverings.
n the further development your child will pull himself up into the stand. Smooth floor coverings such as Parquet or tiles make this difficult. The non-slip and flexible sole makes it easier to get up and stand securely and enables natural rolling while walking. At the same time, it keeps your feet warm on the mostly cool floors.
If the first steps are successful, the foot will be regularly stressed from now on. The muscles and bones are getting stronger and stronger. Researchers recommend letting young children run barefoot as much as possible. However, especially in the cold season, this is not always and everywhere possible. Then you should pay attention to footwear that does not negatively affect the development of the feet. An important point is, for example, sufficient space in the toe area. The feet grow very quickly and shoes that are too small or tight prevent the feet from developing healthily. Nevertheless, your child should have enough support in the crawling shoes. So the fit plays an important role. For this reason, we only offer our crawling shoes in single sizes.
In addition to the health aspects mentioned above, we at Carponi have also dealt critically with the designs. A crawling shoe should have an optimal fit, look chic and be easy to put on and take off. For this reason, we worked on the cuts for a long time and developed special locking mechanisms that support the design. We wanted to create shoes that emphasize the outfit. It can be cool, casual, cute, playful, classy or just MiniMe. No matter what type you or your child is, we offer you the right crawling shoe for the outfit of your choice.
