When your child starts walking, you can't wait to find their first shoes. It's a milestone in itself that they've started walking and that they're growing so quickly. It can be wise to spend some time looking for the right beginner shoes, as it's all about finding the right model for your child's foot. Prewalkers are beginner shoes and are therefore suitable for small feet that are still developing.

Starter shoes for baby

Even if your child is starting to take his or her first steps, it's a good idea to start slowly by buying that first pair of shoes. Your child's feet are still developing, so be careful not to put them in shoes too quickly. In the beginning, you can use non-slip socks and overshoes for outdoor play. Once your child is walking more steadily, you can start looking for their first shoes. But start off softly, as it is very important that the child can feel the ground beneath them. After all, it's the toes that they use to keep their balance. At the same time, walking without shoes helps your child's muscles, tendons and ligaments. When it comes to finding the first shoes, start by finding prewalkers, which are typically a shoe with a thin sole. This allows the child's feet to develop and is also easier for the child to walk in as prewalkers are also very light. Beginners' shoes should therefore be soft, light and close to the heel. We'll give you some advice on first shoes below, and further down the page you can see the range of prewalkers for your child.

Advice for the first shoes

  • The right shoes should fit your child's foot. That means they shouldn't pinch, but they shouldn't be too loose either. One tip is to leave enough room for a little finger between the back of your child's foot and the shoe.
  • Buy shoes with a 1-1.5 cm growth allowance, so your child has room to move their toes and grow at the same time.
  • The sole of the shoe should preferably be flexible so that the child can move naturally.
  • The first shoes should have an adjustable closure such as lace or Velcro, so that they can be adapted to the foot.
  • Find shoes that are breathable, as your child sweats a lot around the feet.
