10 Best Baby Moccasins for 2019

Until babies are walking, they do not need shoes. Socks will generally keep their feet warm. Allowing a baby to go barefoot when they are learning to walk helps develop arches and strengthen ankles. When a child does start walking, going barefoot or wearing socks with grips can be appropriate depending on the flooring and how babyproof the house is. But the best baby moccasins will protect a child’s feet from splinters, stones, hot, or cold surfaces.

A baby’s shoes should be breathable, flexible, and have leather or rubber soles with good traction. They should also be padded around the ankles, on the back of the heels, and on the bottom. The flexibility lets a baby’s muscles develop and allows the soft bones in the feet to develop properly up to five years old. A proper fit would allow room to insert a little finger in the heel area and a thumb space between the baby’s toes and the toe of the shoe. Since babies grow quickly, the fit should be checked monthly. This review of the best baby moccasins will give you a detailed look at ten pairs of moccasins from which to choose for your baby.
