We love babies and don’t just want to make trustworthy and comfortable shoes for them; instead, we want to empower all the parents out there by giving them the knowledge that they need.

As a parent, it is extremely important that you make informed choices about your little one’s footwear. Read on to understand the thought process behind every shoe that Itty Bitty Toes makes for the munchkins and why we are the best choice for your child’s healthy feet.

Barefoot works Best

A child’s feet are composed of cartilage mostly at the time of birth. Bones in their feet go through a long process of ossification that lasts for as long as eighteen years. But the first few years are known to especially malleable for their feet, hence it’s important that they are allowed to develop naturally, without shoes or any other object that affects their structural progress. Your little one needs ample room to wiggle, fidget, and flex his/her feet so that the muscles develop good strength and dexterity. This is the reason why initially barefoot works the best for your little one.

You must be thinking about the times that when you need to protect their little piggies from any kind of elements. Well for those times, Itty Bitty shoes are designed to mimic an experience that is as good as going barefoot to your little one. Our footwear provides all the room a developing foot needs. We make soft-soled shoes with premium leather which are flexible enough to bend with every movement of the baby’s feet. They do not pinch, squeeze or constrain the little feet. We make sure that our shoes are as barefoot as it can get.

Learning to Walk

Your child’s walking heavily depends on the healthy development of their feet. This is the reason why learning to walk in poorly-designed shoes can affect their structure of the foot and alignment of the bones in the feet immensely. A healthy shoe is very important for the little feet to explore new terrain in its natural state. Shoes for babies must never constrict or place a strain on bones and muscles which are already tired of doing the vital job of learning how to walk.

Babies learn balance and strength while learning how to walk relying on the feel of the ground. Therefore Itty Bitty Toes designs baby shoes for all age group keeping this in mind. While still protective and warm, our soft soled shoes allow a child’s feet to interact with the ground as if they were barefoot. We keep in mind all the conditions that they need to develop flexibility, muscle tone, strength, proper ankle function and balance. Our soft-soled baby shoes are less clunky and easier for children to carry the weight of. They are designed with non-slip soles that limit their slipping and sliding.

Simplicity is Key

Itty Bitty Toes’ shoes are ideal for healthy foot development because of its simplicity. We do not believe in providing unnecessary features that put the little ones at risk.

One of the most common misconceptions amongst parents is that babies with flat feet require arch support. The truth is that all babies are born with flat feet because of the padding of fat in the arch of their feet. This baby fat supports their feet and helps them to ossify till the arch does not fully develop.

Itty Bitty Toes believes in keeping it simple and hassle-free for your little one. Some of our best picks for your munchkin this fall are-
