I'm looking for outdoor minimalist shoes for my three year old and haven't yet seen anything that combines a very flexible sole with enough big toe room.
He's currently wearing soft stars (shoes, not mods) and while I'm happy with the soles I'm unhappy with the amount of room he has to move his toes (to the extent that I've considered cutting off the toe box, but as the temperature drops this isn't really an option). I've often noticed that the first thing he does after I take off his shoes is to move his big toe in all directions as much as he can, as though he's conscious of it having been 'locked' into place while he's had the shoes on.
It's getting to the stage that I'm thinking of having a go at making his shoes myself...
Anyone got any ideas?
