Chicco booties are designed and made according to the four fundamental characteristics of the Chicco Physiological Project, which promotes different requirements, depending on the age of the child, whilst always respecting the physiological development of the foot.
The foot plays a vital role in a child's development. It should be protected and respected using suitable booties, which are comfortable, light, and flexible, leave the foot free to move, and follow and promote its physiological development.
Nursery: the adventure starts, protect the feet.
In the first months of life it is good practice to leave your infant's feet bare as much as possible so that they will be able to receive stimuli from the environment. But there is a practical need to protect feet from cold and prevent them from getting hurt.
Nursery - sizes from 15 to 19
For newborns, we recommend deconstructed shoes made of ultra soft material, with the only purpose to cover and protect feet whilst leaving them leaving free to move. The opening must be wide for easier fitting.
Dopoculla: prepare the feet for exploring the World.
Feet begin motor experimentation, acquiring muscle tone and sensitivity, in preparation for the first movements and the first independent explorations.
Dopoculla - sizes from 17 to 20
During this stage, the baby should wear light and soft deconstructed shoes that accompany the first movements outside the crib and help the baby become familiar with shoes.
Gattona: everybody on the ground.
The child is increasingly intrigued by the surrounding world and starts to explore his environment by crawling.
Gattona - sizes from 18 to 23
During this stage, a lightweight shoe with a soft sole and that is particularly flexible at the right points is recommended to assist natural foot movements during the child's attempts to move around and crawl.
Infant: The first giant steps.
At this age, toddlers are taking their first steps, and their little feet are receiving the first plantar stimulations that strengthen the muscles and lead to the correct formation of the arch.
Infant - sizes from 20 to 34
At this age, the ideal shoe should be flexible, with an insole that gently and continuously stimulates the sole of the foot. It does not provide any arch support but it should have a slightly structured heel to provide stability.
