Babies should be kept barefoot as much as possible. But when it comes time to find your baby shoes,keep an eye out for options that are very soft, flexible, and thin so baby can sense the world through their feet. They have no need for shoes with any structure.
Fortunately, many baby shoes are already barefoot approved so you don’t need to be limited to my list. But here you can find all the baby shoe brands that I have already vetted.
