Soft soled shoes have been recommended by experts for years for developing feet. Little feet are able to flex and grip, allowing them to balance and stand with the additional room inside their footwear. Stonz Booties feature an outer sole with a rubbery material and the inside is layered with fleece. Depending on the conditions, additional layers (socks, Stonz Linerz, or light-weight shoes) can be added inside the booties. These layers provide considerable protection between the child’s foot and the ground, while allowing the child to walk freely given the light-weight, soft-soled design of the Booties.
Please limit use to short periods of time on concrete or pavement-like surfaces, as this may wear out your booties’ soles prematurely. Keep in mind that these are soft-soled and not hard-soled footwear.
