Aren’t these little Minimoc shoes just the sweetest? My hubby didn’t let me forget how impractical I was for choosing the very stainable white leather, but Little A will outgrow them soon enough and I can get her a more durable, “practical” colour in the future … maybe.
I love frolicking barefoot and my girls do, too. Keeping feet unrestricted and as au-natural as possible is actually best in developing a healthy gait and to strengthen foot and ankle muscles. But when we’re playing at the park, hiking in the mountains or singing in the rain (or snow for my Canadian friends), we all need a bit of foot protection.
“Walking barefoot, develops the muscles and ligaments of the foot, increases the strength of the foot’s arch, improves proprioception (our awareness of where we are in relation to the space around us) and contributes to good posture.”
Soft-soled shoes, like Minimoc, are what I dress my baby in. Not only do they have an enviable selection of colours (like Dolphin, Coral and Oak), but they keep my Little’s feet warm, protected and as close to “barefoot benefits” as possible.
Benefits of Minimoc
- Keep feet unrestricted for growth and development
- Allow children to maintain a sense of coordination and balance as their toes can still group the floor
- Leather is breathable, durable and flexible to prevent blistering and sweaty feet
- Protection from rough surfaces and cool temperatures
- Broad toe to ensure proper foot shape
