Our Tail design is fast becoming one of the most popular BigToes styles for parents and toddlers! Parents are loving the versatile colours, making them a simple style to match with any outfit, and toddlers are loving the adorable animal features on our Woodlands friends, the Fox and Raccoon designs.
BigToes shoes have been scientifically developed to mimic barefoot walking for babies and toddlers. Produced following a 2004 Japanese patented design, the big toe box allows the wearer to spread their toes freely and naturally to instil confidence when learning to stand, balance and walk.
BigToes provides full support without taking away that barefoot feel which is crucial for growth and cognitive development, nor do they add too much support around the ankle where bub feels the sole rubbing as they walk, causing discomfort and in some cases hindering their desire to walk too far. This feature in BigToes also ensures the ankle is not reliant on support and does not affect the development of their feet, ankles, knees and hips.
BigToes are completely glue free and made of non-toxic materials, eliminating the issue of foot odour after short term wear. Coupled with a variety of cute designs, more and more parents and children are loving their BigToes!
WHY BIG TOES?
1. NON-TOXIC MATERIALS
Great for wearers who have skin sensitivities or have an atopic disease. The glue-free outsole is made of TPE which is harmless to humans.
2. NON-SLIP OUTSOLE
With non-slip technology applied, the strong grip on the sole of the shoe ensures safety for the wearer when on wet or slippery surfaces. The grip is designed to not be a trip hazard when worn on coarse surfaces (such as concrete).
3. SCIENTIFIC DESIGN
Baby shoes that take a science-based approach to create a comfortable shoe which is designed to mimic barefoot walking. Scientifically designed to the fan-shape of a babies foot.
4. BIG TOE BOX
The Big Toe Box allows toes to move freely with no feeling of constriction. This enables babies and toddlers to comfortably spread their toes when learning to stand, balance and walk.
Free toe movement stimulates bone growth as well as assisting with cognitive development.
5. BREATHABLE OUTSOLE
As babies sweat 2.5 times more than adults, breathable footwear is imperative to their health and hygiene. BigToes shoes have breathable holes in the outsoles to allow sweat, moisture and water to escape the shoe, which also enables them to be slip resistant water shoes in summer.
Unlike "Attipas" prewalkers, this breathability offered with BigToes Shoes also helps combat foot odour, with majority of wearers no longer developing or experiencing odour when worn on warmer days.
6. SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT & CONVENIENT
As comfortable as barefoot, these ultra-lightweight shoes are made of soft TPE and cotton (40g), making them easy for parents to put on active little feet.
