When your children are indoors, TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES. Children do not need shoes except to protect their feet. If they are outdoors or in school where they need shoes, put them in shoes that are SOFT, bendy and flexible.
- Soft leather shoes (these shoes are my favorite)
- Padded all leather shoes
- Chinese slippers
- Flexible sneakers
- Canvas mary-janes that are easy to put on (made in Japan)
DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN THESE
- Crocs (the toe box is too big and distorts your child’s body scheme. Children in crocs can fall a lot)
- Hard leather shoes
- High-top shoes
But the best is NO SHOES AT ALL.
