It is the perfect proof that the shoes you have in your hand offers you the necessary flexibility guarantee for the feet of your little one.
The lightness of the shoe is another of the remarkable aspects to be taken into account.
A disproportionate weight of the shoe does not help the baby in his/her first efforts, so a light shoe is ideal.
