No matter how much we want to doll up our children, there is no denying that they can’t do all that we expect them to do. They have delicate feet and sensitive skin. When choosing shoes for your kids there are some things you need to pay attention to, so here are a few pointers that we thought would be helpful for you when you buy your kid’s next pair.
Your kids might not be aware of the discomfort their shoes might be causing them, so make it a habit to check their shoes from time to time. Instead of waiting for the time when their old shoes start to tear or become uncomfortable for any reason, get them a new pair before that unpleasant stage. Don’t wait for them to complain because they just might never say anything.
This seem like an obvious piece of advice, but do not rely on the word of your kids alone. Buy them only shoes that fit their feet perfectly. Have their foot size measured accurately but also make sure to check for the gap between the toes and the edge of the shoe. If the toe is crunched or there is too little of a gap, do not buy the shoe. When you buy a pair of shoes online you can always have your kids try them on when they arrive, and if they don’t fit well – just send them back and get another size (or your money back).
Of course, you would want to dress up your kid in the most stylish shoes out there (you’re not a monster!) but always put comfort first. If the shoes are not comfortable, your kid simply won’t wear them and it would be a total waste of money. Furthermore, you wouldn’t want your kid hurting his feet just because the shoes looked nice on him.
