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. Slippers that do not fit, are too small or too tight will cause foot damage in the same way "normal shoes" do. In addition, cheap slippers - i.e. typical container goods from Asia - often save on materials and manufacturing.
Only sustainably produced goods made of high-quality materials with a healthy fit are a good investment in your child's foot health in the long-run.
Our Tip For You
We also offer slippers that are suitable for orthopaedic insoles.
