With a storied history dating back to 1873, Tsukihoshi (Moonstar in Japan) is Japan's largest manufacturer and distributor of children's footwear. Having collaborated with orthopedic specialists since 1985, Tsukihoshi has perfected a line of children’s shoes that focuses on the health, protection and comfort of children’s feet. Every Tsukihoshi style is machine washable, anti-bacterial and ultra-lightweight, and is designed to not only support but promote proper foot development. These attributes, along with the brand’s fashion-forward styling, make Tsukihoshi stand-out as a truly unique brand in children's athletics.
With appropriate space around them, toes can maintain a tactile contact with the ground and instinctively grip it, boosting children’s sense of balance as they develop.
Moreover, unconstrained toes contribute to a healthy arch development as well as allow soft bones and cartilage to align naturally throughout their delicate growing process.
Whilst toes are free to move, the rest of a child’s foot needs great stability to avoid its natural tendency to over-pronate (landing on the arch side).
Our counter stabilizer braces the heel and the foot arch, providing the much needed stability to achieve a proper walking.
Our extremely flexible”Flex-Joint Outsoles” are specifically designed to help children’s feet to flex, to promote natural movements as well as provide maximum comfort to little feet that are still learning how to bend.
