Advantages of Swedish moccasin slippers
Swedish moccasin slippers are created keeping in mind the requirements of babies and small children. The first concern is to keep the child’s foot warm and cozy. Moccasin slippers are made by using cotton, polyamide and lycra. Thus they are warm and comfortable for the child.
The second concern for every mother is that the child does not slip or fall and hurt themselves which they would if they are wearing socks. Swedish moccasin slippers are an amalgam of a shoe-sock-slipper, thus while keeping the foot as comfortable as it would be in a sock, it provides the sturdiness of a shoe and does not let the child slip.
The third concern is that the footwear stays in place rather than coming back home with one sock or one shoe. Moccasin slippers have double elastic on the top that stays put on the ankles and is next to impossible to just slip off or be kicked off by the child. Also most moccasins go well above the ankles for better support. Rest assured that you shall come back home with both feet of your baby covered.
