Is it good for kids to be barefoot?⠀

In short, yes! Being barefoot is fantastic for their development as their feet change so much in the early years. ⠀

There is a time and place for everything though, so if there is a risk of injury or damage then it's important to protect those little feet first. ⠀

Shoes are a wonderful way to protect their feet from being trod on or stepping on something sharp and dangerous. ⠀

There are many different foot types and different styles of shoes are more suitable for some foot types then others. If your child is complaining of sore feet when running or playing then it would best to go and visit your podiatrist. ⠀
