Best kids sandals for sensory kids
5

mamatothreebunnies · 02/08/2022 10:09

I’ve spent a fortune on shoes for my girls aged 6 and 8 who seem to have an issue with every footwear. I’m at my wits end never mind the fact that they actually need to wear shoes.

im looking for something with ankle strap, breathable, good cushioned sole.

we’ve had geox, birkinstocks, crocs, etc. they complain about the straps. They complain about the fact that they get small stones going in their feet with open shoes), and I just don’t know what to buy them anymore! They’d happily wear flip flops but we go parks and trails a lot and they can’t wear flip flops for those.

What about some cheap water shoes? They cover their feet, are bare foot friendly and comfortable.

My son with sensory issues has done well with Birkenstock EVA milanos and Teva sandals.
But mostly, he's happiest in his Geox or Skechers mesh trainers.
My eldest DC loved water shoes, mentioned above by Junobug, which Lands End does very well.

Sports direct have amazing water shoes. They are the comfiest thing but have a really good grip. Looks like you can get 2 pairs of children's for under £10.

I didn’t really bother with sandals for them when they were little, they always found themselves tripping over in them and used to get really pissed off with little stones on their feet.
I gave up and just went with their usual trainers/converse when they were small, they never complained about having hot feet!

Same. Youngest DS has ridiculously sensitive feet and just wears normal shoes or trainers all the time. I can just about convince him to wear crocs for the beach but that’s his limit.
