Hi, our names are Sam and Penny and we are the creators of Sammys™. As the parents of 3 young children we wanted to create a shoe that promoted healthy foot development and provided stability and comfort for little walkers.
Like any parent, we want the best for our children. Over the years we tried numerous pairs of shoes but were not satisfied with the constricting nature of many of the options on the market. We also felt that too many of the shoes were slippery and did not provide the traction little feet often need when learning to stand and walk.
According to experts, barefoot is best for healthy foot development, especially in a child’s first years. The foot contains 26 bones and over 100 muscles, ligaments, and tendons that can be affected by restrictive footwear. We realize barefoot isn’t always possible so we created a shoe with a flexible sole that interacts with the natural inclinations of the foot. The stylish designs are just a bonus!
Our innovative anti-slip sole design provides the traction little ones need as they learn to stand and walk. Nothing is more frustrating than watching a child pull themselves up to a standing position only to fall down due to either a slippery floor or slippery footwear.
