Is It Healthy for Kids to Walk Barefoot?

News / July 19, 2021

Kids love to be barefoot. There is nothing better than running through fields, splashing in the rain, walking in the sand, and squishing through the mud. But is it better for kids to walk barefoot or to wear shoes?

When toddlers start learning to walk, they need time to strengthen their feet. Having a connection to the ground improves their balance and coordination.  Going barefoot helps nurture the development of healthy biomechanics and movement patterns. Putting their feet in rigid tight shoes does not allow the foot to develop properly and can lead to weakness, decreased mobility and deformities.

There are situations where it is not possible for a child to go without shoes, so the best option is to put them in a pair of barefoot (also known as minimalist) shoes. They are the next best thing to walking barefoot! Leguano Barefoot Shoes has a superior barefoot shoe that is perfect for toddlers and little kids.

Why are these shoes the best alternative? Let’s look at 10 benefits.

  1. Flexible Sole

These shoes have a very thin sole that allows for the foot to move through the full range of motion, strengthening the feet and keeping them flexible.

  1. Protection

The sole provides protection from sharp objects, hot or cold surfaces, stinging insects and even dog feces.

  1. Thin Sole

The thin sole allows the child to feel what is beneath their feet. While they are out exploring, they will have a better feel for what surface they are on and adapt better. This could include running through a park, climbing a tree, or walking on a slippery surface.

  1. Breathability

Children’s feet can get pretty sweaty! Leguano Shoes are made from a breathable fabric that lets moisture escape and keep feet dry. This will prevent fungus growth such as athletes’ foot.

  1. Washable

Kids get into all kinds of messes. They just love to play in the sand or jump in mud puddles. Leguano Shoes are machine washable and quick to dry so your child will be ready for the next adventure in no time.

  1. Non-Slip

A day at the pool can lead to slips and falls. Having a non-slip sole will keep your child safe from spills. It will allow them to get a good grip when climbing trees or playing on the monkey bars.

  1. Easy To Put On

Leguanitos have an expandable woven upper that makes it easy for kids to pull on, just like socks.

  1. Proper Alignment

A shoe with a zero heel-to-toe drop (meaning the heel and toes of the feet are the same distance to the ground) puts the body in a more natural alignment and can result in better posture. It may put less stress on the joints which could help prevent possible weaknesses and injuries in future years.

  1. Not Restricting

The flexible fabric of Leguano Barefoot Shoes will let your little one’s toes spread out naturally. This provides a sturdier base and better balance.

  1. Reflexology

The sole of a Leguano Barefoot Shoe is so thin that pressure points on the bottom of a child’s foot will be stimulated. These pressure points can stimulate the organs leading to things like improved energy, digestion, circulation, sleep and more.

Let your kids run barefoot but when it’s not possible, put them in Leguano Barefoot Shoes for kids.
