Sandals are nice for summer because they're cooler than regular shoes and of course match summer attire, however, when it comes to your baby's developing feet, you have to be careful. Baby - toddler flip flops and many other slip on summer shoes are not ok because they provide zero support for tiny feet and can be a risk factor for falls. All little ones need sandals with secure straps. You should also consider how well your child walks. A new walker may need better toe protection so look for sandals with toe coverings. Following are some safe and cool sandals for the youngest set.
Ainsley and Charlie from See Kai Run offer sandal comfort and breathable insole and lining but are safe for little feet with toe covering and non-slip bottoms.
Stride Rite offers safe summer sandals with style and at affordable prices. Styles shown above include:
- NMS Olena Pink Sherbet/Pixie Pink - Open and fisherman-like sporty sandals but with air access so little toes can breathe and closed-toe protection.
- NMS Luc Sandstone/Brown - The Natural Motion System Technology in these sandals offers maximum flexibility that mimics natural foot movement, plus support, breathability and comfort for active feet. Also, ultra adorable!
- Keds Just Beachy Heart Sandal - perfect for the beach and a little more dressy so these could easily pair with a cute summer dress but offers better coverage than toeless sandals.
- First Mate Brown - Dressy sandals for little boys with comfortable Natural Motion System, which mimics barefoot walking plus a padded collar.
