- OUR STORY
Looking for the perfect shoe for your baby or toddler to learn to walk in? Maybe they’re still crawling a bit or if you’re lucky, even doing the occasional run! That’s ok, we’ve got those tiny little feet covered, whatever they’re up to.
Your little one needs their shoes to fit perfectly, an ill fitting shoe can really mess up their walking. Make sure you measure, don’t guess - they might surprise you!
What makes GK Sneakers great…
The experts recommend keeping babies and toddlers barefoot whilst learning to walk. That’s not always possible though, right? The next best thing is a shoe that mimics being barefoot, with a super lightweight sole to protect their little feet from dirt and the hot/cold ground but not get in the away of any movement.
It’s important your new walker can bend their toes to grip the ground and feel any lumps or bumps underfoot. When their foot or toes can’t bend or feel the ground properly, they lose some of the ability to strengthen all of those tiny muscles and toes.
That strength is what’s needed for walking confidently, and even climbing and kicking a ball down the track. Our soft sole shoes are designed to protect their feet but feel as though they're walking barefoot, perfect to support all the development needed for your little one to become confident on their feet!
