Soft Soles: The Best Shoes for First Walkers
Research shows toddlers/babies learn to walk best when barefoot. That is why the best shoes to help them along are shoes that mimic being barefoot while protecting their feet. Ankle-Biters soft sole shoes allow little feet to grow naturally and for your child to walk as if barefoot. This is very important as it helps them to develop their balance and encourages the correct foot and muscle development in the arch of their growing foot.

From crawling to cruising, walking to running, for indoors and out, ideal year-round, choose a pair of our funky Ankle-Biters little soft sole shoes, so your child can have the best support and protection while learning to walk AND look the best on the block.
Soft Sole Shoes Care Instructions
As with all high-quality leather items, they should be cleaned regularly with a good leather cleaner. Alternatively, you can also use a soft damp cloth with mild soap to gently dab dirt off the shoe.
Occasional machine washing in cold water with like colors, gentle fast wash, using a mild detergent (use Omo, Cold Power or Dynamo). Please do not use environmentally friendly detergents as they might contain abrasives. Please do not use fabric softeners or any other additive. It is recommended to use a bra bag in front loader machines. Stuffing them with paper towel and restoring them to their original shape will help them dry better.
The shoes should then be left indoors to dry. Do not place them in direct sunlight or next to heat sources. On a very hot and dry day they could dry very fast, in that case once dry they should be “worked” in your hands (you can use a very small amount of hand lotion) in order to restore the original softness. You may also put them separately in the dryer with NO HEAT, delicate cold cycle.
