POLOLO-Cordel with cord stopper - leather barefoot shoes
Healthy children are constantly in action - their whole musculature is always in motion, and that's how 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 developing slowly. It is not until they are 18 years old that the foot bones are finally hardened. The slightest pressure - triggered, for example, by shoes that do not fit or are too hard - or too little room to move - could possibly cause damage.

The POLOLO barefoot shoe Cordel is like a second skin that nestles around the feet, warming and protecting. The cord stopper is on the instep, so not so good for small children who move over the top of their feet when crawling or playing. The integrated drawstring means that you can still adjust the fit over the instep and thus adapt it to the instep height. Cordel tends to be narrower.  Cordel is a barefoot shoe because the sole is flat, the toe box very wide, especially at the big toe the cut is straight and not rounded.
Material: The vegetable-tanned IVN-certified natural leather we use is free of heavy metals and pesticides, very skin-friendly and tested. So you can also wear these POLOLOs barefoot. But please remember: dyed, uncoated and chemically untreated leathers can also 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.
