Loi recently receive a pair of Funky Feet footwear from Baby’s Breath Singapore for review. We put the footwear to “test” by letting Loi wear it to the S.E.A Aquarium.
As the brand name suggest, I think the design of the Footwear is really nice. I went into the website to take a further look. There were other designs that were even better.
I love this design. Its so cute. It would look really cool on the small little feet.
Funky Feet footwear are handmade in UK and have soft, flat and flexible soles. These are really important for toddlers who are just learning to walk. With the soft soles, they are able to feel the floor better and hence is able to really grip the floor with their toes. This is crucial for developing foot strength and proper posture.
However, Loi is a little past that stage. At 16 months, she is able to walk quite well and has form the habit of wearing shoes with thicker soles, the soft soles feels weird for her. She kept raising her feet and looking at them to check that she has shoes on. *LOL*
The day we receive the footwear, the girl was so excited that the moment I put it on for her, she walks around the house with it. Initially I was a little afraid that she will fall, however, the suede surface did make the soles anti-slip.
The day we went to the S.E.A Aquarium, it was drizzling when we were making our way home. The girl was also walking around on the pavement that was slightly wet while we were queueing for the train. It didn’t appear slippery for her too.
This is a plus point for all footwear, especially if they are meant for young toddlers.
I don’t know how these toddlers do it, but they tend to dirty their footwear easily. Sometime from the food they spill at mealtimes, sometime from walking over “unknown” areas. Being machine washable means parents can safely throw it into the washing machine without having to worry about it. Isn’t that wonderful?
All in all I think Funky Feet Footwear is really good for those who are just learning to walk. The cute designs and soft soles are really suitable for them. For those we can already walk well and is exploring walking on different “terrains” like Loi, parents would prefer a slightly thicker but flexible soles.
