Have you heard of Attipas shoes? What is so special about it? The price of a pair of Attipas shoes equals to two to three pairs of cheaper shoes. Is it really worth the price?
The best and the worst products spread through word of mouth. While you are researching what baby/toddlers shoes to buy for your little ones, let us present you the science behind the Attipas shoes, the testimonials, the good and the bad reviews of Attipas shoes.
The Science of Attipas shoes
The meaning of Attipas is “My precious Friend’s Step” as a compound word. “Atti” means My precious Friend in Korean and “Pas” means Step in French. Attipas was launched in 2011 after 7 years of cooperative research & development conducted in conjunction with the Cognitive Behavioral Development Center at the Seoul University. Attipas was developed based on biomechanical knowledge of brain development .
By allowing toddlers to feel the sole of shoes and move toes freely, Attipas helps to correct toddler’s walking by evenly distributing foot pressure.
One more thing, Attipas shoes are endorsed by Podiatrists.
They are Lightweight. Flexible. Convenient. Breathable. Safe.
Now check out the Attipas Testimonials:
Mum from Malaysia: My eldest daughter who is now 3 years 7 month old, was diagnosed with Rickets, Vitamin D deficiency type, which caused her legs to bend outwards, and therefore forcing her feet to clubbed-in, and makes her struggling to walk properly.
….what I want you to know that, through all these years, only one type of shoes that fits her best and accompanying her days without a single complain unlike other shoes that make her feet hurt or too hard to her toes, arch & soles. Her feet grow, walks and run with Attipas. I sometimes cheered to her “Run Forest,Run!”.
Attached here with is a collage of some her memory with Attipas, all I want to say is Thank you Attipas for being there with my daughter through her ups and downs.
The bad reviews
While I tried to find some bad reviews, I found 4 people rated TERRIBLE for Attipas in Product Review.com.au, but they were rating for customer service instead of the products.
Anyway, I found two stars reviews from Amazon:
Narek: While it sure looks like a quality product my 1.3 year old baby easily took them off every 5 minutes. So after 3 days of trying we just gave up.
Jay: Somehow it’s difficult for my daughter to walk in these big toe shoes. Not as good as expected.
And a couple from Facebook: (To clarify: Piling is normal, with thicker socks or frictions can cause more piling)
The good review
There are tons of good reviews that can be easily found online, but I will just take two:
Donna who reviewed Attipas at her blog:
I love that Attipas Shoes are so easy to put on and fit into family life so seamlessly – Although Little Man tends to wear his big shoes out and about he often wears the Attipas shoes in the pushchair and always at home. The shoes are so soft and bendy that there is no chance of them damaging growing children’s feet and they give his feet the support and protection he needs whilst running around without being to heavy or cumbersome.
