Soft-soled shoes have been recommended by experts for developing feet because the flexibility allows them to grip, balance and stand with additional room inside their footwear. Stonz Booties feature an outer sole made with grippy, SlipNOT material and a fleece-lined inner. Depending on the conditions, additional layers (socks, Stonz Bootie Liners, or lightweight shoes) can be added inside the Booties. These layers provide considerable protection between the child’s foot and the ground, while allowing the child to walk freely given the lightweight design of the Booties.
**Please keep in mind that extensive use on concrete or pavement-like surfaces may wear out your Booties’ soles prematurely.
