About Skidders: Skidders Footwear made their debut back in 2008 with the original Skidders Shoe - a patented children's shoe that features a knit upper sock and a soft flexible rubber outsole. The shoes are easy to put on the child so there is no fussing with laces or velcro straps. The rubber sole is durable and protects the baby's foot and toe area, making it easier for kids to stand and balance on their tippy toes. The best part is the flexible outsole, making it feel natural and comfortable for the baby to walk.
"There was a belief that babies and toddlers required a stiff leather shoe to help them balance and promote walking development, but these formal types of shoes are clumsy and don't provide a natural walking experience for the child. That is why Skidders are the perfect shoe for baby to use when they start walking," says Michael Matalon, "It's almost like walking barefoot, which is the most natural experience and best way to promote proper walking development. In addition, Skidders shoes have a full rubber outsole to enhance traction on wood and tile flooring so kids can run around the house safely without slipping or falling."
