Why do children love barefoot sandals?

Especially the youngest ones like to walk barefoot. Unfortunately, it is often not possible.

For the growth of the feet, toe-freeness and flexibility of the shoe soles are of great importance. Both are guaranteed by our barefoot sandals. In this way, children can follow their natural movement in a protected and yet flexible way, almost as barefoot.

The material

We use pollutant-tested soft foam materials from orthopaedics or (art) leather.

Leather has great and natural properties. It regulates the foot climate, is robust and very durable. We process natural and high quality selected leather. Available leather colors: black, brown, light blue, velour orange, red, dark blue, wine red, pink, purple. Please write us your desired color in the order.

We recommend a 4mm or 6mm vegan sole as a children’s model.

Learn more about it in the film on the left.

Sole thickness

The Tarasoles soles are cut from soft and very flexible Vibram soles with a high rubber content. We recommend the thin 4 mm for more barefoot feeling and the 6 mm version for hiking on rocky ground.

There is also the possibility of making an asphalt model or a mountain model for children. We recommend these models especially for outdoor use.

For the surface we use a black anti-slip material.

For this we charge a surcharge of 20 euros.

Barefoot shoes for kids

Dr. Peter Greb, the author of the book “Ballengang” describes in this film why barefoot shoes are useful for children.

Do children need insoles?

More and more parents ask us if we recommend insoles for children. We say “no” to insoles and recommend barefoot shoes for children.
