Barefoot shoes for children

The Healthy Choice

Zero Drop Heel

For natural posture

Foot-shaped barefoot shoes with plenty of space that allow the child's foot to develop naturally and build a strong foundation


Why Barefoot Shoes?

Why are barefoot shoes for children a good idea?

The best thing for the child is actually to walk with bare feet. But with our climate, it is not always appropriate. The majority of all children are born with well-functioning feet. Feet that are made to be used.

Conventional shoes are often too narrow, have a symmetrical toe box, a stiff sole and a slight rise in the heel. These are all things that affect the body's posture, and can contribute to injuries later in life.

What exactly are barefoot shoes?

Recommended by children's physiotherapist

There are still different opinions on how much or how little support a children's shoe should have. Here, children's physiotherapist Lene Raadkjær Jørgensen writes what she thinks is important in children's shoes:

We have bought both shoes and sandals for our child, and they are super good. In addition, there is also fantastic service and fast delivery :-)


Absolutely fantastic shoes and boots!
They are absolute favorites at home.
Easy for the child to put on himself
Incredibly warm winter boots, even without socks 😊👍
And bonus... Then they are super beautiful 😍

Mette is an excellent company that supplies quality children's shoes, good service and space to send goods back.
Here we order almost all of our shoes (rubber boots are not on the shelf yet) ;)


Warm, delicious, beautiful, practical and flexible winter boots! Super good service and fast delivery🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
All the shoes are 100% worth the money.
We will definitely recommend Gogsig to others 🤩


Super nice quality. Really good fit on the barefoot shoes for my daughter, who has a high instep and wide foot. The size guide is accurate, so it was very easy to order the shoes. Fast delivery.


We are so happy with the shoes for our son. It is great to know that his first shoe is a shoe that continues to support his foot/ankle development. We couldn't imagine him wearing any shoes other than these. They were also super helpful in finding the right size, and gave quick answers back.


I had been looking forward to trying out the nice shoes for my daughter - and the shoes did not disappoint! They are easy to put on and my daughter seems really happy with them 😊 She often squats down to look at something, and it is a pleasure to see how the shoe follows her movements. We will definitely also order the winter boots when they arrive!

Helle who has is very quick to respond, super nice to help and her shoes are fantastic for small children's feet. Have bought from her twice.
Also, delivery is faster than most places!


Fast delivery. Nice instructions on the website. Good design. Good shoes for my daughter's feet. The winter shoes have held up nicely throughout the winter season.


A super light and delicious shoe that my little daughter loves to wear. When you are 21 months old and prefer to wear shoes all the time because you just love shoes, it is great to know as parents that there is not a lot of boring chemistry and that her feet still get the right freedom of movement.


My son, who is practicing walking and is mostly barefoot, got his first shoes from Gogsig. They are super flexible and despite the fact that he constantly changes between sitting and standing, and the shoes come off on the nose - there is absolutely no wear yet.

My daughter, who is almost 3, is just so happy with her nice "yellow" shoes, as she calls them. She tends to have wet messes and she doesn't get that in these!! In addition, she has wide feet and they fit so well 😊

Frequently asked questions about barefoot shoes for children

Can all children use barefoot shoes?

Fortunately, the majority of all children are born with completely normal and well-functioning feet, and yes they can all use barefoot shoes.

It is normal for children up to the age of 5-6 to have flat feet, and wearing barefoot shoes will only strengthen the instep.

If your child has some kind of crookedness or abnormality in the feet or ankles, I would recommend that you first talk to a health professional . They are completely in control of how the foot should best be trained.

Can you use barefoot shoes when you have previously used conventional children's shoes?

For children aged 1-8 years, there are no problems transitioning to barefoot shoes.

From the age of 7-8, it may be a good idea to make a slower transition, so that the foot can adapt to the "new" way of using the foot.

Barefoot shoes offer a more natural and free movement for the feet, which can be beneficial for children's development of foot strength, balance and coordination.

The children may have to get used to the different feel and support that the barefoot shoes provide.

It is also important to choose barefoot shoes that fit the child's feet correctly and provide adequate protection and support.

In general, barefoot shoes can be a good option for children, especially when they are outdoors or in more natural settings, as they allow the feet to move more naturally and develop optimally.

Which size should I choose?

When looking for the right barefoot shoe, it is important to find a shoe that fits the child's foot. Both when it comes to length and width.

Size guide

When should the child have the first pair of shoes?

Usually it is said that the child must learn to take the first steps in bare feet, so ideally it will be when the child has learned to walk.

Can the shoe be used as a prewalker?

If the child has just learned to stand and needs a little non-slip surface, I would recommend using a soft sandal . Then you can look at shoes when the child is more stable on his feet and begins to walk around on his own.

Prewalker shoes are designed to provide protection and support for little feet while still allowing some natural movement and development. Barefoot shoes can meet these criteria by providing a light, flexible sole and a comfortable fit that allows the child's feet to move naturally.
