Best Toddler Slippers Reviewed & Rated

The majority of people are born with perfect feet.  By the time we reach the age of 65, estimates project that we have walked over 100,000 miles.  That is a lot of strolling and hiking and rambling and wandering.  Acknowledging this information demands that we take good care of our feet and avoid choosing poorly fitting footwear. Issues may start to develop when our wobbly, bowlegged, cruising toddler begins those initial journeys into the world propelled by his own two feet.  Choosing the correct footwear can reduce or even eliminate the possibility of developing these problems.
