From Crawling to Walking: The Importance of Baby's First Shoes

May 5, 2024

From the moment our Little Boss entered the world, we embraced the idea of letting her tiny feet feel the ground beneath them without the confinement of shoes. In those early days, we saw no need to burden her with footwear, understanding the importance of allowing her feet to develop naturally.

As she grew and began to explore the world on her own two feet, we remained steadfast in our belief that shoes should be minimal, if not entirely unnecessary. We waited until she was confidently walking before considering any form of footwear. Even then, we were cautious about the type of shoes we introduced.

Recognizing the significance of supporting her feet without hindering their growth, we opted for pre-walker shoes. These gentle, flexible shoes are designed specifically to accommodate the needs of developing feet, providing protection without impeding their natural movement.

In prioritizing her foot health, we've learned that less is often more when it comes to footwear. By allowing her to experience the world barefoot or in pre-walker shoes, we're not just protecting her feet — we're fostering her physical development and connection to the world around her.

Why do we choose pre-walker shoes, especially the ones with anti-slip socks?

Non-slip socks offer a snug fit that moves seamlessly with your baby's feet, promoting natural foot development and unrestricted movement. Unlike shoes, which can feel restrictive, these socks provide a comfortable alternative, allowing infants to experience both security and freedom. With non-slip socks, your Little Boss can explore and play with ease, enjoying the benefits of protection without the constraints of traditional footwear.

Thanks to a blend of encouragement and the freedom to explore despite wearing the shoes, our Little Boss took her first independent steps at just 13 months old. Her confidence in walking grew rapidly, evidenced by her ability to stroll from the carpark to her childcare center—a journey that typically takes adults 3-5 minutes—within a span of 5-8 minutes, fueled by her energetic pace. It's incredible to witness her speedy progress and newfound sense of autonomy as she confidently navigates her world on two tiny feet.

Research spanning from beginner walkers to older children consistently emphasizes the benefits of barefoot walking for nurturing healthy foot development. Anti-slip socks shoes offer a unique solution, simulating the barefoot experience while providing the protection and security of footwear. Despite wearing these shoes, children feel as though they're walking barefoot, allowing for natural movement and promoting optimal foot health. It's a win-win scenario, combining the best of both worlds to support your Little Bos's growing feet.

Ahgiya! is thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest addition: anti-slip socks shoes for your Little Boss. Available in two adorable designs—Panda or Winnie the Pooh—these shoes hail all the way from Japan and feature officially licensed Disney characters, guaranteeing authenticity and quality. Now, your Little Boss can embark on adventures with confidence, thanks to the magic of anti-slip socks shoes. Ready to step into a world of safety and style? Secure your pair here.
