Barefoot shoe Summer with integrated elastic band
Healthy children are constantly in action - their whole musculature is always in motion, and it should be, because this is how they train their body awareness. Children's feet are not just little adult feet: they are wonderfully soft and flexible because their foot bones are still developing slowly. It is not until they are 18 years old that the foot bones are finally hardened. The slightest pressure - caused, for example, by shoes that don't fit, shoes that are too hard or too little room to move - could possibly cause damage. Care should also be taken with barefoot shoes.
The more flexible the sole, the better the foot is trained when walking, the sense of balance and the foot muscles are strengthened and a healthier body and foot development is promoted. Our barefoot soles are particularly elastic and thin. For a healthy foot climate, our vegetable-tanned leathers are the best anyway; but for summer, this model offers even more airiness - have fun with it and a wonderful summer!

This summer barefoot shoe was developed with children's foot experts. It has been designed for outdoors as well as the special requirements in the kindergarten with a TPR sole. The toe area is cut straight at the big toe for plenty of toe room. Made with love for craftsmanship from IVN-certified, vegetable-tanned natural leather. Tested for harmful substances and allergies.
Walking barefoot has many advantages - especially in summer it is a lot of fun. Sometimes the surfaces are just too rough, hard and uncomfortable. Then barefoot shoes are just the right choice! Summer has a built-in elastic band, so the shoe fits perfectly on the foot when hopping, running or climbing. In addition, the material is very skin-friendly, free of heavy metal and tested. So you can also wear these POLOLOs barefoot. But please bear in mind that dyed, uncoated and chemically untreated leather can sometimes stain when wet.

Fit of children's shoes

The human foot takes about 18 years to finally develop. In the beginning, of course, it grows the fastest. Therefore, you parents should check the fit of your children’s shoes every 3-4 months. We have always developed removable soles for POLOLO street shoes – as far as this was possible for the respective style. On the one hand, you can then easily change the sole (e.g. put in a wool sole for the winter) and you can measure the foot length or fit very well with it. If the imprint of the big toe is already alarmingly far forward, then your child has already grown again and the next shoe size is due. Our soles are all very flexible, especially our Barefoot collection.

POLOLO pursues the highest ecological standards

When manufacturing our POLOLOs in Spain, we pay great attention to ecological, pollutant-free materials and processing throughout the entire production chain. We only use German natural leathers that are vegetable tanned and certified, organic cotton (Bio / kbA) and wool from controlled organic animal husbandry (Bio / kbT). POLOLOs are allergy-friendly and therefore our leathers are naturally chrome-free.
