Real talk: Even before COVID-19 upended our lives, our kids spent most of the summer running around barefoot. But now that we’re limiting our trips to the playground, grocery store and pool, well, we honestly don’t even know where their shoes are anymore. (Maybe in the basement? Or under the bed?)
We recently found out that walking barefoot on hard surfaces for an extended amount of time is bad for us because it allows the foot to collapse (which can lead to issues like bunions and hammertoes). But do the same rules apply for little people? We tapped Dr. Miguel Cunha from Gotham Footcare for his expert take.
