Guide to sandals


Sandals are near-indispensable footwear during the summer months, but it can be difficult finding a pair that best takes into account your child's individual needs. Sandals come in many different designs which differ a lot in terms of how much support they provide to your child's feet. That is why we have compiled a number of tips below to help you find the most appropriate pair of sandals for your child's needs.

Soft and comfortable materials
bisgaard sandals are made from real calfskin leather, which is one of the most supple and breathable natural materials sandals can be made from. It makes the sandals soft and comfortable. Especially for toddlers, it is important that the sandals have a solid heel cap and non-slip natural rubber soles so that the sandal fits well and the child is guaranteed firm footing on all types of ground and flooring. At bisgaard, we believe it is important that children can play, move around freely, and have fun in all the footwear we design. This naturally also goes for our sandals, which your child can wear every day throughout the summer without getting tired or sore feet. There are many variants of both open and closed sandals. You can read more about the difference between open and closed sandals here.

Room for growth in children's sandals
Little feet grow quickly. In order to find the right size sandals, have your child stand against a wall with their heels touching the wall. Place a book by their longest toe. Following that, measure the distance from the wall to the book (i.e. the heel to the longest toe).
• For babies and toddlers (0-2 years old), it is important not to buy sandals that are too big, as this can inhibit their motor skills development. You should therefore leave no more than 1 cm of room for growth.
• For closed sandals, we recommend 1-1.5 cm of room for growth.
• For open sandals, we recommend 1 cm of room for growth.

Sandal maintenance
The fact that our sandals are made from entirely natural materials means that they can stand up to quite a bit of punishment, and with a little care they can continue looking great all summer. It is a good idea to wipe off any dirt from the sandals with a moist cloth. You can also use beeswax spray to help preserve the sandals' flexible qualities and appearance. Shoepolish can also freshen up the colors on your leather footwear. For suede sandals, liquid shoepolish (either in a neutral color or the color of the sandals) is the best way to keep them looking new. We also recommend using a suede brush, which brushes the little hairs on the suede into an upright position again.

Great design and carefully selected details
bisgaard has a large range of sandals in different colors and models for both boys and girls, big and small.
Our sandals are made on different lasts, so we sell models suited for broad as well as slim feet. bisgaard sandals are based on classic designs with unique details suitable for all ages. The sandals come with either Velcro buckles or straps that allow you to quickly put on and take off the sandals and keep the base of the foot close to the sole.
Natural materials combined with a great fit and design create the perfect sandals that your child can comfortably wear all summer.
