Snugi slippers are a good and smart choice for encouraging quality movement patterns and posture of babies and children. Because they are completely soft and made of natural materials, they provide the feeling of walking barefoot. The child's feet do not become cramped, as the slippers are wide enough in the toe area to allow the toes to expand appropriately during the mid-stance and heel-off phase. Because they are completely soft, they adapt well to the foot and do not obstruct or undress during movement, playing on the floor, climbing, or walking. Because the sole is thin and soft, it allows the foot to receive sensory information from the ground on which the child walks, it is provided with all the sensory-motor experiences that it gets on the ground through the feet and can consequently react with movement and posture, and responds with balance. It is precisely the quality balance responses that have a significant impact on the quality development of the arch of the foot. After all, a foot that is not supported by additional supports on the sole is much more active. The fact that Snugi slippers do not reach over the ankle and thus enable even greater foot activity and better dynamic stability in the ankles also contributes to an appropriate balance response. In addition, the sole is made of non-slip material and thus further ensures the stability of the feet.

Since not all feet are the same, it is very welcome that slippers are hand-made and customized. Therefore, they are also suitable for feet with higher insteps, as well as for wider and narrower feet.

They are super soft, comfortable, spacious enough, and airy, with a non-slip sole, made of natural materials. They are suitable for babies who are just starting to get up on a support and walk, as well as for those a little older who are already discovering the joys of daycare. Since these slippers do not have any buckles and rip-tabs, they are easy to put on and children quickly learn to dress them on their own, without the help of their parents, which is great for the independence process.

However, since school age children also spend a lot of time in slippers, it is very important that the slippers are suitable for schoolchildren, of high quality and allow them to move their feet as freely and unrestrictedly as possible. Especially in this age group, a non-slip sole is important to prevent as many accidents as possible while running in school hallways, in gyms etc. Because feet still grow and develop during this period, quality choice of slippers is still very important.

Snugi slippers are also a quality choice for adults, as after long hours of wearing cramped shoes they have a relaxing and relieving effect on the feet.

Because Snugi slippers are made of completely natural materials, the feet do not sweat in them, as all materials are breathable and friendly to sensitive baby skin. All Snugi slippers are also machine washable.

I keep recommending Snugi slippers to all parents as the slippers are anti-slip, wide enough so they don't compress the child’s foot and children don't even notice wearing them.

For healthy and normal development of children's feet, experts recommend barefoot walking. Due to the climate where we live, we know that this is not possible for most of the year. The best choice for the feet are slippers that feel like other skin - SNUGI.
