Youth are required to wear shoes for every activity and therefore seldom get time to excercise those little used muscles we use when barefoot.  The Mako is a durable, athletic youth shoe which allows a child to move as if they are not wearing shoes, mimicing the motion of barefoot.  With non-marking soles, durable rubber outsoles and comfortable wide toe boxes, a child can wear shoes but get all the benefits of not.  Since 1873, Tsukihoshi has been committed to making children's shoes that enhance natural motion.  The Mako is one of the most highly reviewed zero drop shoes on the market.
