Directions for use:
These Domyos Baby Shoes are can be worn inside or out and are perfect for going to Baby Gym classes. They are easy to slip on and off. We suggest wearing them with socks and adjusting the rip-tap to fit your child's foot.
Children's feet have special needs:
Walking barefoot is best for babies so they can learn to feel and recognise tactile sensations. Nerves on the bottom of the feet help them determine where to place their body weight for good balance. Domyos' wide and flexible baby shoes give little feet a chance to freely grow and get stronger while protecting them from cold and dangerous surfaces. All our baby shoes were specifically designed for babies' feet.
What is Baby Gym?
Fun gymnastic activities on specially designed equipment with teachers to lead the activities. These obstacle courses are made up of various apparatuses built to be safe for very young children (beams, steps, sloped ramps, parallel bars, tunnels, rollers and more) that allow children to climb, slide, jump, balance etc. Baby Gym is intended for children aged 10 months to 6 years.

What are the benefits of Baby Gym?
Baby Gym promotes psychomotor development in young children, especially motor skills, coordination and balance. Balancing on beams, jumping, rolling and climbing are activities that will help your child become more independent and confident.
What to wear:
What should your child wear for Baby Gym?
A comfortable outfit that's suitable for the season: a T-shirt and shorts or bottoms in soft knit fabric, and a jacket or tracksuit for warming up. And, to keep from slipping on the equipment, a pair of Domyos Baby Gym shoes.
Domyos' Baby shoes are great for going to class - they're easy to slip off to put on your child's Baby Gym shoes!
Wearing the right shoe size:
Wearing shoes that fit perfectly is extremely important - shoes that are too big or too small (even by 5 mm!) are not a good idea. Shoes that are too small can injure the ankle and toes or rub the skin, while shoes that are too big can change the gait and cause blisters from rubbing.
Children aged 1 to 2 years generally grow out of their shoes every 3 to 4 months. Be sure to check their shoe size on a regular basis.
