Can these just wear trainers for the rythmique then?

They had loads of them in Dosenbach in Neuchatel today. They were 5.95 chf a pair and they had them in black or white.

My son didn't need them (as Wattlis said he wore trainers for sport) which was quite lucky as I don't think they go up to his size.

It depends how old your kids are. In nursery and primary schools, all kids wear pantoufles de rythmiques. Especially nursery school.

My son was in primary and he didn't but I think they did in enfantine. It's probably safest to ask the teacher so that you don't end up spending loads of money unecessarily.

Rythmique is a bit like dance, so trainers are not really suitable, too clumpy.

Actually the humidity is fairly high, especially for Switzerland , but nice compared to the past month or so. and the temperature is in the low 30C range for the first week in quite a long time, so no one is really complaining.

So, what exactly qualifies as indoor slippers?
From a teacher: they are soft shoes with clean soles that the children only wear inside school. Slip on shoes and crocs are not the best, especially for younger children as it makes it dangerous to climb stairs. Soft soled slippers with a rubber or plastic sole, canvas running shoes or such are ok. Hard soled- shoes are usually not so good either..... For their teacher's sanity, try to send shoes that your children (if they are little) can put on, take off and tie/close on their own.

Also ask your child to bring them home every so often to see if they still fit!!

Hope this helps.
:-)

Re: My kid needs "une paire de pantoufles d’intérieur" - what are they exactly?

We got some yesterday, but they are not the most comfortable shoes. Both my children have wide feet, so they are already complaining that they hurt their feet...sooo I am not sure that these are really the best thing that should be on their feet all day...ugh!

Are these the shoes or the slippers? Many shops selling children's shoes will measure the feet and give you samples of a good fit. There are certain brands that my son can't wear because he has a slim fitting and they flop around a bit too much. Wellies were a nightmare but we found a good brand that seem to fit him best.

We went to 2-3 store for the indoor slippers and ended up with some made my Elefanten, but no one had any wide ones.

as long as it's a non-slipping shoe and ensures the kid a good grip around the curves.
Spoil sport!

A lot of my students (Kindergarten in an international school) wear canvas running shoes that have velcro. They seem to do the trick. The felt slippers are too slippery and the children tend to kick them off.

Re: My kid needs "une paire de pantoufles d’intérieur" - what are they exactly?

What about the bag with their name embroidered on the outside for the gym slippers- is that no longer a requirement? Remember to write their name in everything, just in case others have bought the same.

I used to buy sneakers in the sales as slippers. If they allow sneakers as gym shoes - you have to buy the non-marking soles. Often they don't allow them when little as kids tend to tread on each others feet- not much fun to be trodden by sneakers when you are wearing gym slippers. I hate gym slippers though- they are either too tight or fall off.
Check the size regularly monthly as children's feet grow so fast.
