Toddlers – Selecting the very first pair of shoes

Your child is ready to get their first pair of shoes when they start walking comfortably on their own. Barefoot is best for healthy foot development as it helps to master balance and coordination. Indeed, this is not always practical to allow your child to walk around barefoot. As soon as they step outside you need to protect their delicate feet (especially on uneven, hot, cold and rocky surfaces etc).

Richter has developed its own set of first walker shoes for their first steps, it is called the Minis.

☑  Extremely flexible soles that allows optimal movement for the feet
☑  Dampening foot bed for promoting cushioned steps
☑  Ankle-high cut and reinforced heel area for best hold
☑  Special soft leather used in manufacturing
☑  Flexibility is also provided by a special stitching method
☑  Fashionable colours and beautiful designs to make first walkers stand out from the crowd.
