Why Froggie Barefoot Science Shoes?
More than 80% of foot problems, bunions & injuries are a result of badly fitting & inflexible shoes... Investing in flexible, well-designed shoes like froggie barefoot science is an investment in the good health of your child’s feet.
RS-Scan tests show that children wearing rigid, inflexible shoes display poor centre of pressure measurements, which can lead to bad foot alignment. This has a negative effect on bone & muscle development.
Most of the future bone structure in a child’s foot begins as cartilage (firm elastic tissue) that is gradually replaced by bone. (Clear spaces between bones on x-rays indicate cartilage and soft tissue). Cartilage in a child is easliy deformed by sustained external pressure.
That is why it is vital that a child’s shoe allows enough room for natural growth and direction until the foot bones mature. This happens at age 18-19 for girls and age 20-21 for boys.
Rigid, inflexible, poorly shaped shoes are potentially harmful, restricting natural movement and development of the foot!
Humans are born to run around barefoot. Froggie barefoot science are the closest shoes to barefoot there are. Conventional shoes inhibit the development of body and mind, like putting your child’s feet in a cast, restricting natural growth and general health. Froggie barefoot science have been designed in conjunction with a leading podiatrist.
Froggie barefoot science stimulate nerve endings in the soles of your feet, enhancing proprioception and improving circulation. Conventional shoes mask this information and retard the natural development of the body.
Froggie barefoot science aligns the body as it was naturally designed and allows it to function as nature intended, keeping the body invigorated as it grows and also improving muscle tone.
A puncture resistant layer is added over the sole. This technology, usually used in safety shoes, protects the foot from small sharp objects and allows your child all the health benefits of going barefoot with the protection of normal shoes. A technically advanced new compound used for the sole is highly abrasion resistant. The foot bed is breathable, removable and washable.
All the major muscle groups and ligaments of the leg go through the feet. Wearing froggie barefoot science naturally flexes and strengthens all the muscles in the feet.
