I've have a 2 year old that can't keep her shoes on. In the car or in stores. How far should I encourage this behavior. I barefoot and I wear vibram5f outside. I don't mind to much since I do it. But my wife doesn't like it thinks she should keep the shoes on or be carried if she kicks them off and never touch the ground with barefeet. Do I encourage the barefooting, even in stores. Vibrams aren't realy an option, there to expensive for kids chaotic growing feet. And flipflops come off even quicker. What do you guys think. Anyone else have barefoot kids.
