Zero Drop Shoes Keeps Kids’ Feet In The Same Position As Being Barefoot
Standing barefoot on a level surface, the heel and the ball of the foot are at the same height. Zuna Shoes mimic this by having no heel elevation in any of our shoes. In kid’s speak they are exactly flat. In grown-up speak, they are zero drop.
Why Should You Care?
Most children’s shoes have an elevated heel. A raised heel encourages heavier heel striking and negatively affects the alignment of the spine. Wearing them long term shortens the Achilles heel cords potentially creating foot issues in the future.
Starting at an early age is the best for multiple reasons. Wearing zero drop shoes keeps kids’ feet in the same position as being barefoot allowing the foot to continue growing naturally. Zero drop shoes force the feet to become stronger because there is no elevated heel weakening the foot. Lastly, there is no need to relearn to wear natural shoes later since they are already used to zero drop shoes.
