To walk without shoes. First steps.
A few weeks ago in this post we told you about the objective of the FEROZ shoe as a brand of children's footwear for the first steps . Today we emphasize the need to respect the philosophy of 'going barefoot' that we defend and how necessary it is in the first stage of children's growth. Walking barefoot is all the little one needs in his first steps . From birth to adolescence, the child's foot is constantly growing. Hence the need for it to grow freely . Footwear should not press or become a barrier that prevents the natural development of muscles and joints. It is clear that it is not possible to go out barefoot and that the foot needs the protection of external agents. That is why the importance of knowing what type of children's footwear to use in the first steps. In this stage of growth, FEROZ shoes come into play. Our goal is to accompany the child, up to approximately 24 months. In this phase we want to prevent your feet from suffering when in contact with the outer surface, but we must not forget that the foot must continue to grow at its own pace. For this reason choosing the right shoe is essential.
Development phases of the child, and indicated footwear, up to 3 years:
- From 0 to the beginning of the crawl. It is not necessary to put shoes on it. If you want socks or booties in case there is a need to protect them from the cold
- Crawling phase . It is still ideal to go barefoot or they are socks. In case you want to protect the foot for the outside environment, it is important that the footwear protects them from the cold and from blows, being made with natural materials. As minimalist as possible.
- From 1 year to 3 . The child takes his first steps, begins to walk and should wear light shoes with flexible soles that allow him to feel contact with the ground.
- Put shoes on the little one when necessary, that is, when they start to walk and we need to protect them from hostile surfaces
- Avoid footwear that causes chafing
- Natural and flexible materials
- rounded toe
- Importance of walking barefoot to promote the correct gait of the child
