Soft soled shoes have been recommended for developing feet by experts because the flexibility allows them to grip, balance and stand with additional room inside their footwear. Stonz Booties feature an outer sole made with a rubbery material and fleece lined inner. Depending on the conditions, additional layers (socks, Stonz Liners, 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 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.
