first-step shoes, children's shoes up to size 40 and personal consultation...

Going barefoot is considered one of the best preventive measures against foot deformities. The muscles, ligaments and tendons are optimally trained by the intensive movement and thus also strengthened. Speaking of which - of course this also applies to the adult foot.

First Shoes

The purchase of the first shoes is usually a very special moment for a child, but also for the parents. Often times people aren’t familiar yet with the ins & outs and therefore aren’t exactly sure what to look out for. We - at SMW-Schuhhaus - are specialized in offering our customers the best advice and this is especially important when buying first shoes.

We value shoes that promote and support the natural motion process of human feet in the best possible way - that is why SMW-Schuhhaus offers a variety of different, high-quality barefoot shoes. Some well-known brands we carry include Filii, Affenzahn, Ricosta-Barefoot etc.!  © SMW-Schuhhaus


Going barefoot is the most natural thing in the world. The human foot is developed in such a way that it "works" best without shoes. Nevertheless, in our modern world we find it difficult to get by without shoes. This makes it all the more important to wear shoes that do not impair our natural movement functions, but rather promote and support them in the best possible way.

Slippers that have a healthy fit are of great importance at SMW-Schuhhaus! This is why you will only find sustainably produced slippers made of high-quality materials. We exclusively carry top brands, which are known for their high-quality slippers. These are for example Superfit, Naturino, Giesswein and many more! © SMW-Schuhhaus

Healthy Slippers

An Austrian study carried out in 2001 in cooperation with the Regional Health Insurance Fund of Burgenland (BGKK) found that 59.4% of all children currently wear slippers that are too small.*
Slippers are often worn much longer during the day than street shoes. Think of the kindergarten, school, after-school care and of course your home.
