Letting children running around the house barefooted is great for helping them develop good balance and healthy arches as well as feet and leg muscles. In Japan, it's actually sort of mandatory since shoes aren't worn in the house (and even in some offices and restaurants). The downside is that after a couple of hours, any active child will end up with dirty feet! Thankfully, the Children's Indoor Flip-Flops Gray are an effective and, at the same time, comfortable way to avoid that!
Handmade in Tokyo by a small workshop called Merikoti, the Children Indoor Flip-Flops Gray are a type of zori (split-toe sandals usually worn with traditional Japanese clothes like kimono) but here made of 100% cotton knitting yarn. This makes them very soft and perfectly suited for the tender feet of children. They come in three sizes, with a body/sole length of 16 cm (6.3"), 18 cm (7"), or 20 cm (7.9"), and you can also adjust their main strap for an even better fit.
