​Advantages of Soft Sole Baby Shoes: Beyond Health

22nd Aug 2018

From a developmental perspective, soft sole baby shoes are the best option for growing infant feet. Health benefits include the ability for baby’s feet to grow without restriction, allowing full range of motion and serving as protection from daily hazards. In addition to these frequently discussed health benefits, soft soled shoes provide a sense of ease to busy parents with their many functional benefits. Read on to learn why soft soled shoes make parenting little ones just a little easier.

Soft Soled Shoes are Easy On and Easy Off

The last thing you want to struggle with when changing your child’s clothes in a hurry are laces to tie. The elastic bands of soft soled shoes allow ease when removing and replacing baby shoes but remain snug on the feet of active infants and toddlers so you never have to worry about losing a shoe.

Forgiving sizes

When it comes to finding the right size for your next pair of baby shoes, you’ll find there’s a little wiggle room when going with soft soled shoes. Use our baby shoe size chart and safely measure your child’s feet at home. Don’t fret about the shoes being a perfect fit since Robeez shoes are designed to be a little larger to provide room for healthy foot growth. Robeez has baby shoe sizes ranging from newborns to two years. (We also have a few styles in sizes 2-3 years and 3-4 years which are the perfect show for day care).

Decreased Chance of Injury…For Mom and Siblings

For those who have encountered a hard-soled shoe during a tantrum or gleeful kicking spree, you know toddler shoes can be an occupational hazard. Hard soled shoes can leave chins bruised, toes crushed and feelings sore. Take the sting out of unintentional mishaps by outfitting your little one in shoes with a soft bottom. Working on your dodging reflexes will still be a must, but you’re in for a treat the next time you’re caught off guard by a flailing limb or stomp happy toddler.

Soft Sole Shoes are Great for Packing

Diaper bags or luggage can easily become weighed down with all the essentials needed for a day out or vacation with baby. Soft sole baby shoes help keep your bag light and easy to manage, since they take up a smaller amount of space and weigh less than their hard-soled counterparts. The pliable material makes them easier to stash; perfect for a quick to reach side pocket or to tuck at the bottom of the diaper bag or luggage without fear of damage. These soft baby shoes are so lightweight, you won’t think twice about bringing along a couple pairs of soft soled Robeez shoes.

Tidy(ish) Floors

Soft soles are best for indoor use, and can also be used for light outdoor activity. By limiting your child’s soft sole shoes to use inside your home, you can keep your home clean and free of dirt typically tracked in with hard sole shoes.

Perfect for Crafts

The shoes have served their purpose and while you know it’s not recommended to store as a hand me down , it seems wrong to throw away a memory of these precious years. Transform those little shoes into works of art. Grab some twine and create a mobile, mount them in a shadow box, affix several pairs around a mirror and even create ornaments. The possibilities are endless.
