Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do you wear sock in barefoot shoes?2022-11-22T08:35:09+00:00

If you like to wear socks it is certainly allowed! We recommend to wear socks which are thin, not too tight and restrictive. Our suggestions is to choose socks which simply give you the freedom and comfort same as the barefoot shoes. 

If you prefer to wear barefoot shoes without the socks all we would like to say is:” Go ahead and enjoy!:)”

When should baby start wearing shoes?2022-11-09T10:05:25+00:00

Watching your baby getting ready for their first steps is a big milestone of every child and parent.

But wait with the first pair of shoes at least until your baby prefers walking to crawling.

Even then it is preferable to leave your child to make as many barefoot steps as it is possible. If the climate allows we recommend to start with the anti-skid socks or barefoot shoes specially designed for the first steps.

In our collection you can choose from any Dodo shoes sandals designs usually in sizes 18 or 19 for the very first steps. For the correct size choice please visit our tips on sizing and meassurements.

How do I choose the correct size?2022-09-13T07:07:03+00:00

Rather than ordering based on age or EU size, as these are merely indicative, we recommend the best approach, for the most accurate fit, is to measure the child’s foot.

1. To correctly measure the adult’ s or child’s sole, place the feet on a flat surface, under the weight of the body.

2. Draw around both of your feet.

3. Measure the distance between the tip of the big toe and the heel, preferably with a ruler.

4. Trace a line between the widest part of the feet.

5. Compare your measurements to the size tables of the particular brand you have chosen. Please note that each brand has its own size table.

Please go to Sizing to find the sizing guide for all our shoes.

How do I clean my shoes?2021-02-14T04:23:39+00:00

Gently clean the shoes with a cloth dampened in cold water, without detergent or other substances. Please do not immerse the shoes in water!

Carefully clean the stains and avoid heavy rubbing or rough brushing as they can damage the material.

Dry the shoes at room temperature, avoiding direct sunlight or other heat sources.
