Parents know how important it is to protect their little one’s face and body from the sun and are sure to have them covered head-to-toe in SPF50+ as well as a sun hat. However, there is one area of the body that can often be missed…the feet!
Remembering to protect little feet both on the top and bottom is so important as the skin here is really sensitive. It not only burns easily but can also sustain cuts whilst playing on the beach or in the garden. The tops of little feet and toes can often be grazed while little one’s crawl around outside.
Dotty Fish sandals are podiatry approved soft leather baby shoes which are both flexible and lightweight, ideal for keeping those little feet cool while still protecting them during the summer months. Take a look to see how the Dotty Fish shoes were put through the most sophisticated tests. You can also hear Consultant Podiatric Surgeon Ron McCulloch and Podiatrist Fran Campbell talk about the benefits of our soft soled leather baby shoes.
Ron McCulloch, said “A key thing is actually that we don’t want to see any change between bare feet and the shoe. We just want to see normal natural function and to make sure that it’s not impeded by footwear and so far, the results are encouraging.”
As with all Dotty Fish shoes the leather is tested to ensure it is chrome free and they are designed with an extra-wide toe area, so they don’t restrict foot movement and growth. An elasticated ankle trim means they are well-fitting and don’t keep coming off. This makes them ideal for wearing on the beach or in the garden, enabling everyone to enjoy the summer without sore feet!
Helen Chapman, founder of Dotty Fish said “As a parent, I know only too well how many things there are to worry about and how easy it is to feel guilty that you aren’t doing a good job. I really worry about the sun and cover my family in factor 50 as soon as the sun comes out! Knowing that the shoes we sell at Dotty Fish help protect little feet is so reassuring to me. Our business is all about providing quality summer baby shoes at an affordable price that are good for growing little feet.”
The reviews we receive about our shoes are always fantastic – Nikki from Lowestoft said “Bought my beautiful granddaughter’s first pair of shoes from here and couldn’t have been happier with them ! They came beautifully packaged with recyclable packaging, they were well made and fitted perfectly. She found them really easy to walk in and she couldn’t pull them off , which we liked . I’ve just received my second order and will definitely be ordering more from this lovely company ❤”
Our Sandals are available in lots of colours and designs, so whatever you’ve got planned this summer Dotty Fish has the perfect soft-sole summer sandal.
