Checklist For Crawling Shoes

Material
  • Children’s feet are very soft and easily deformed. Therefore, crawling shoes must be made of soft materials so as not to affect the foot posture.
  • Usually, crawling shoes are made of fleece, wool, cotton, natural leather or imitation leather.
  • Leather or imitation leather crawling shoes are particularly suitable. They are sturdy and durable, breathable and fit the child’s foot very well.
  • When buying, look for materials that have been tested for harmful substances, especially chrome-free leather. Leather is often tanned with chromium salts . Chromium III is considered harmless to health, but chromium VI can cause allergies.
Size and fit
  • To determine the appropriate size, place the child’s feet with toes extended on a piece of paper or cardboard and trace the outline.
  • Add about 1 cm of length.
  • Match the template with the manufacturer’s sizing charts or measurement charts.
  • The crawling shoes fit optimally when the baby can stretch out and move all toes.
  • Elastic cuffs make it easier to put on and take off and prevent the crawling shoes from slipping off the feet.
  • Children’s feet grow very quickly, about 1 mm per month. Therefore, regularly remeasure your baby’s feet, because the crawling shoes quickly become too small.
#Label
To note
  • Crawling shoes have a soft and flexible sole. This keeps baby’s feet warm when the child takes its first steps.
  • However, crawling shoes are not suitable for outdoor excursions.

FAQ About Crawling Shoes

What are crawling shoes?

Crawling shoes are specially designed for babies and are intended to support them when crawling or first attempts to walk. Therefore, these shoes already have a sole, which prevents slipping on the floor. So the child can start his first walking attempts without hurting himself.

What material are crawling shoes made of?

Crawling shoes should be as soft as possible, so that your child has a comfortable grip. The sole should also be flexible for this reason. Therefore, they are usually made of fleece, wool, cotton or leather. In any case, you should make sure that the shoes do not contain any harmful substances that your child could absorb through the skin – or inhale. Appropriate test seals provide information about whether the shoes have been extensively tested. You shoes made of leather are also very robust and durable. Note that leather contains chromium salts, which can cause severe allergic reactions in your baby. Many models also have a waistband with elastic, so that a quick on and off is possible.

Which size should I choose for crawling shoes?

First you need to determine the appropriate shoe size of your child. Therefore, you should measure your baby’s feet. The shoes fit perfectly when your child’s toes do not touch the shoe. However, you must assume that the measurement is only a snapshot. Baby feet grow rapidly, which is why the crawling shoes will quickly no longer fit your baby.

When are crawling shoes suitable?

Crawling shoes are suitable when your child moves more and becomes more mobile. It then begins to explore its environment more closely and also ventures its first walking attempts. Since every child develops differently, it is not possible to state a general minimum age. From an age of six to 8 months, however, the purchase of crawling shoes can be quite sensible.

Why should my child wear crawling shoes?

Crawling shoes are especially comfortable in winter, as your child’s feet do not have to freeze. Especially on cold tile or wooden floors, your baby can slip quickly without protection. The crawling shoes then provide a secure grip, so that your baby is protected from injury.

Can crawling shoes also be worn outside?

Crawling shoes are not enough for your baby to romp around outside. Especially in bad weather conditions, the crawling shoes can not keep off rain and snow very well. In this case, it is more suitable to use special walker shoes, which can also be worn outside.

How long should crawling shoes be worn?

As soon as your child can move freely indoors and outdoors, the crawling shoes are usually no longer needed. Since your baby’s feet are constantly growing anyway, the crawling shoes cannot be worn by your baby for a longer period of time for that reason alone.

Which crawling shoes are good?

As a rule, crawling shoes from well-known brands such as Giesswein or adidas can be recommended without restriction.

What do crawling shoes look like?

Crawling shoes are available in plain and monochrome designs, but also with small animal motifs or other colorful patterns.
