The most original, wonderful, and healthiest way of getting around is to walk barefoot. Children who spend a lot of time exploring the world barefoot have strong and healthy feet and a natural posture. Walking barefoot over sand, pebbles and grass is fun and promotes balance and coordination - but it also activates the foot and leg muscles in a natural way. This also helps with the development of basic sensory and motor skills and has a positive effect on brain development. Not every environment your children will explore is barefoot friendly, however. That's why Groundies offers barefoot shoes for various occasions, to authentically imitate the benefits of barefoot movement.
It's child's play: all models have cute motifs on the soles. There is a bear on the right sole and a rabbit on the left. In addition, there are markings on the inside of the soles that make it easier to distinguish between them.
Children's feet are as individual as children themselves. They differ in length, width and the shape of the instep. For this reason, our shoes are made of light, supple materials that adapt to the contours of the feet. In addition, our children's shoes have different fastening systems that provide extra support and an optimal fit.
Children's shoes from Groundies strengthen the foot muscles, promote coordination skills, support natural foot growth, and provide maximum comfort. Groundies also stand out in terms of design. In short: Groundies kids are flexible & healthy!
Barefoot shoes from Groundies are designed to imitate barefoot walking. Why is this necessary? Because walking barefoot (as the most natural way of getting around) enables children and their feet to develop freely and unhindered.
With very dirty shoes, the best thing is to clean away the worst of the dirt with a soft shoe brush when dry. Stubborn dirt should ideally be removed with warm water and a damp cloth. The shoes should then be dried with the sole facing upwards. Occasionally, you can also treat the shoes with a mild cleaning agent such as our Groundies cleaner. We do not recommend washing our shoes in the washing machine as this can affect their lifespan.
