After a long summer break, kindergarten and school children are back in full swing. With the start of the new school year, they put footwear on their bare feet and spend hours in them almost every day. To make those hours pass as comfortably as possible, a good choice of footwear for kindergarten or school is of great importance.

Whether it's dance class in kindergarten or walking to the school canteen, feet bear the full weight of the body every day and are constantly exposed to dexterity challenges and often awkward knocks from contact with the ground. What should one look out for when choosing the right children's footwear?



Feet grow quickly, but their nerve endings develop slowly. This is why toddlers often can't judge for themselves whether their shoes are too tight and need help when trying them on. There should be about an inch of space between the front of the foot and the shoe.

Choosing a good quality material for your children's footwear is crucial as it affects their all-round quality.

  • To help children develop strong and flexible feet, it is a good idea to make sure that the slippers they wear in kindergarten and school are soft.
  • As children's feet sweat quickly, slippers should be made of natural materials such as leather or canvas to allow the feet to breathe.
  • It is also important that the sole is not slippery and allows the little one to step surely.

Make sure that the slippers fit the foot perfectly and do not slip off. 

Why choose Minimellows children's slippers?
