Our durable barefoot kids’ shoes let nature do its job. All Vivobarefoot children’s shoes are wide, thin and flexible with a super-thin puncture resistant sole. Quality leather school shoes, thermally protective winter boots, lightweight synthetic shoes for playtime and adventures. Kids' feet aren’t fully formed until the teenage years. Stiff, padded footwear gets in the way of natural foot development. Our shoes let kids' feet thrive as nature intended. They’re built to protect feet from the sharp objects and from the cold, whilst still allowing them to grow and function as they should. 90% of feet are born healthy. Our mission is to keep them that way.
