Why Are Soft Soles Important?
The soles on athletic shoes for babies and toddlers are everything your child’s shoe SHOULDN’T be. Babies and toddlers feet are forming at a rapid pace. They're growing 26 bones, 33 joints, hundreds of muscles, tendons, and ligaments in each foot… Not to mention 200,000 neuro-transmitters. Yet, prominent shoe companies continue to make “fashionable footwear” that cut off their all-important feeling – Which dulls their sensory feedback to their brain from their feet and hinders their learning to walk. It's an easy fix - Stop buying those darn "old style" shoes!
Designed and Created in the Pacific NW
Raised in Oregon and bringing up my two daughters in Portland, I was inspired to create a quality non-slip moccasin. Form and function can now be stylish for your little one. The Original soft moccasin with non-slip soles was the beginning. I now offer more than 10 designs, release seasonal collections, and sell on average over 2,500 pairs a month of Little Love Bugs worldwide.
Slips and falls? They help with that.
For proper foot development your little should run around barefoot as much as possible, but the American Board of Pediatrics recommends soft sole shoes once children begin to walk to protect their feet from rocks, slivers, temperatures, rough surfaces, etc. and toddlers are recommended to continue to be in flexible soft soled shoes until at least the age of two. Little Love Bugs have been designed for proper foot growth and comfort for your child.
