Buying baby sandals is a lot like buying baby shoes. From newborn until about 6 months of age, babies do not require any type of baby sandals or baby shoes. Especially in the warm weather, they are for fashion only. When selecting a baby sandal, soft breathable materials with a flexible sole is recommended. At this stage, the sandals can be open toe, closed toe, or clog style to name a few.
When a baby starts becoming interested in crawling, standing and walking, it is important to make sure the sandals fits properly, stays on the baby's feet and most importantly, protects their toes and feet. Most babies will scrape their toes and tops of their feet while crawling and learning to walk. We at Baby Supermall like shoe-sandals for newly active babies.
Some of our favorite baby sandals are from our Rileyroos and Robeez brands. Sandals from these brands are soft, flexible, and protective. They also offer traction to help avoid trips and falls.
