Healthy children are constantly in action - their whole musculature is always in motion, and it should be, because that's 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 slowly developing. But the slightest pressure - triggered, for example, by shoes that do not fit properly - or too little room to move - could possibly cause damage. That's why children - but also adults - should walk around barefoot as much as possible - and if the ground and the weather don't allow it, we recommend POLOLO barefoot shoes, which warms and protect the feet like a second skin.

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.
