Tips for use:
Domyos bootees are designed to be worn indoors (on dry, smooth surfaces). Just slip them on without socks for optimal contact with the ground. The nerves on the bottom of the feet will "feel" the floor to help children find their balance.
About children's feet:
Walking barefoot is best for babies so they can learn to recognise tactile sensations. The nerves located under the foot help to determine where the body weight should be distributed to help stay balanced. Domyos bootees are wide and flexible, allowing your baby's feet to grow and become stronger unrestricted while also protecting them from the cold or dangerous surfaces. All our baby shoes are specifically designed for babies' feet.

How to choose your size?
A proper fit is extremely important: a smaller or bigger size (even by 5 mm!) is not advisable. Shoes that are too small can injure the ankle and toes or rub the skin, while shoes that are too big can change the child's gait and cause blisters. Between ages 1 and 2, children's feet will grow about 1 shoe size every 3 to 4 months. Remember to regularly check their shoe size.
