Why Are Brad Pitt’s Kids Going Shoeless?

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt risks a lot of foot problems while barefoot at TargetDespite their recent split, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie still share custody of their six children: Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne and Knox, which means that the kids are supported by not one but two very rich and famous actors.

So you can imagine my surprise when, earlier this week, two of the kids: Shiloh, 11 and Vivienne, 9, were spotted at a shopping center walking barefoot through the aisles and even the parking lot!

Now, in some cases, I do advocate for children going barefoot: babies, for example, should not wear shoes before learning to walk as the shoes interfere with their foot growth and development.

But barefoot babies are not walking around; I don’t suggest taking your child of any age out of the house without shoes and/or socks as doing so leaves his or her feet vulnerable to any number of problems: fungal infections, cuts, scrapes, blisters…the list goes on and on.

I understand the impulse to let kids be kids and enjoy the simple pleasures of summer like walking barefoot—but there are times and places when doing so is safe, and the parking lot of your local Target is not one of those places!

Do your kids a favor: make sure they wear their shoes when out in public, even by the pool or in the public showers. Let’s keep them safe and keep bare feet for the inside of our homes!
