Proper Shoes For Children’s Feet



Children’s feet grow at a phenomenal rate often to the dismay of parents who bought new shoes for their child merely months ago. Quality, supportive, and comfortable shoes for children are essential to the overall development of a child’s foot. When it is time to purchase shoes for your child a few things to remember are ensuring the shoe has adequate cushioning and a built in arch, that the shoe is flexible enough to bend where the foot naturally bends, that the child be measured while standing, maintaining a one half inch space between the toes and the end of the shoe, allowing the child to walk in both shoes for a few minutes to ensure comfort, making sure that the shoes do not slip off of the heels, and finally measuring both feet and opting for the larger size if needed.
