We’re so excited to carry the Dudi model for younger children from sizes EU24-28. Barefoot sandals help your kids develop strong, mobile, skilled feet right from the start.
They have a soft finish with no rigid elements and comfortable stitching to ensure a “barely there” feeling on sensitive kids’ feet that moves every way your kids move. The adjustable velcro straps make them easy to fit on various foot shapes and sizes.
Magical Shoes are made in Poland in a small family manufacturing facility, with a focus on attention to quality. The Dudi combines natural grain leather with vegetable tanned leather insoles and a barefoot-feeling 3.5mm Magical Rubber sole resulting in a lightweight summer sandal to protect their feet while allowing for natural movement.
Magical Shoes describes the Dudi’s sizing as generous or “runs large.” They use a unisex European sizing system.

The Dudi sandal has very thin soles that are grippy, flexible in all directions, abrasion resistant, and sport a colourful design. With a thin and flexible sole, these will be the next best thing to bare feet when a little protection is required. A barefoot feeling shoe not only allows for natural movements through sustainable alignment, but also allows for sensory feedback that helps navigate the environment.
Kids used to stiff, thick-soled, and/or heavy footwear may take a little bit to adapt to wearing barefoot style shoes, though our understanding is that they adapt much more quickly than adults. If you have concerns, you can have your child try on the shoes indoors for sizing and comfort and supervise or ask questions like, do the shoes stop you from moving how you want to move, or does it feel weird or bad anywhere, can you point to that place, etc. We find kids trying shoes on at our shop often know what they like or dislike but don’t always have the words to describe why, so asking both yes or no and open-ended questions can be helpful.
These leather sandals are super easy to care for and very durable! Just wipe with a damp cloth and lay flat to dry. If the leather starts to feel less supple, you can apply a leather conditioning product for the best wear experience and long lastingness.
These cute sandals for little feet will be easy on-off with their velcro straps and perfect for summer adventures. They’ll be wonderful for walking around and outdoor playtime. Soft and roomy for “forget they’re on” comfort, their barefoot-like ground feel will allow information about the ground to inform confident moving so kids can maintain healthy foot function as they grow. Magical Shoes specifies that the Dudi is not compatible with devices like scooters and run bikes where the child would want to brake with the toe of their shoe.
