Faux fur lining.
The Domyos Babylight bootee has been approved by a physiotherapist.
Observations of the behaviour of children aged 10 months to 4 years participating in Baby Gym classes with and without shoes showed that wearing Domyos Babylight shoes helped with the development of their motor skills compared to being barefoot. Better grip and support provides the child with better balance and coordination, and protects the foot as well.
The benefits of physical activity at a young age
Regularly doing physical activity from as young an age as possible is good for a child's physical and mental development. It helps establish a good lifestyle habit which will reduce the risk of health problems later on in life. Furthermore, doing a group physical activity with others encourages social integration and contributes to a child's personal development.

Directions for use:
Domyos baby shoes are indoor shoes. Just slip them on to give your little one maximum contact with the floor. The nerves on the bottom of their feet will "feel" the floor and help them find their balance.
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 the 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 cold and dangerous surfaces. All our baby shoes were specifically designed for babies' feet.
Doing Baby Gym
What is Baby Gym? Fun gymnastic-oriented exercises in the form of a course made of specially designed apparatuses, under the watchful eye and assistance of instructors. These obstacle courses are made up of various apparatus designed for very young children (beams, steps, sloped ramps, parallel bars, tunnels, rollers and more) that allow children to climb, slide, jump, balance, etc. Baby Gym is intended for children aged 10 months to 6 years.

What to wear
What should your child wear for Baby Gym?
A comfortable outfit that's suitable for the season: T-shirt and shorts or bottoms in soft knit, plus a jacket or tracksuit for warming up. And a pair of Domyos gym bootees to avoid slipping on gym equipment.
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 ankle and toes and rub the skin, while 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.
