No more putting shoes on the wrong foot!
The two small circles at the front of the shoes must be facing each other so that they can touch when the child puts their shoes on. This makes it easy for them to put each foot in the correct shoe.

Directions for use:
These Domyos Baby Shoes are can be worn inside or out and are perfect for going to Baby Gym classes. Easy to put on and take off, they are best worn with socks, we also recommend fastening the rip-tab relatively tightly so that the shoe hugs the shape of the child's foot.
Characteristics of a child's feet:
Walking barefoot is best for babies so they can learn to feel and recognise tactile sensations. Nerves on the bottom of their feet help them determine where to place their body weight for good balance. Domyos' wide and flexible baby shoes give little feet a chance to freely grow and get stronger while protecting them from the cold and dangerous surfaces. All our baby shoes were specifically designed for babies' feet.

What to wear

And a pair of Domyos Baby Gym bootees to avoid slipping on gym equipment. Domyos shoes are perfect for heading to Baby Gym, and can be easily taken off and exchanged for bootees for the gym session itself.
Wearing the right shoe size:
Wearing shoes that fit perfectly is extremely important - shoes that are too big or too small (even by 5 mm!) are not a good idea. A fit that is too small on the toes can injure the heel and toes and rub the skin, whilst a fit that is too large can alter the gait and cause blisters and rubbing. Children aged 1 to 2 years generally grow out of their shoes every 3 to 4 months. Be sure to check their shoe size on a regular basis.
