Light weighted warm rubber boots with a flexible sole.
Aigle fur-lined rubber boots meet some of the barefoot shoe criteria.
Barefoot shoes are minimalist shoes that give an experience close to walking barefoot with feet still protected from cold and injury. Walking in barefoot shoes strengthens muscles, let your child’s feet to receive sensory feedback from the ground and provides free movement of the growing feet. Barefoot shoes are the most comfortable shoes your child has ever worn.
They are characterized by:
- Wide toe box following the natural shape of toes
- Zero heel-to-toe drop
- No arch support
- A flexible and thin sole
Aigle fur-lined rubber boots’ toebox is round and they cannot be fixed to the ankle. For these reasons, they only meet some of the barefoot shoe criteria. Other criteria are met.
