What are the Best Barefoot Sandals For Kids?

Barefoot kids sandals are a healthier alternative to sandals that are less friendly to little feet! They have a wide toe box, flexible sole, and a secure fit so your child can run and play without discomfort.

Below you will find our favorite barefoot sandals for kids that let their toes be free while still protecting them from hot pavement, insects, and other summer-time hazards.

We love closed toed sandals for kids best, because they stay really secure on the foot while still being breathable and practical for play.
