Welcome to sprouts2.com, I hope you are able to find the information on how to buy a pair of right shoes for your kids and have a chance to browse through the website.
I’m working full time as a podiatrist assistant. I have seen many people with foot problems that can be easily resolved by choosing the right shoes. I have also seen the impact of having the wrong shoes in early age to the later life. Many of us have zero attention on how to choose the right shoes, rather we buy a pair of shoes by the appearance and the price. Good news to you: some foot problems that are not genetic hereditary are preventative with the right interventions.
Helping you to choose the right shoes for your kids
Buying shoes for kids can be challenging. They tend to choose the design of their favorite color or cartoon, they did not take the price or the practicality into consideration. That is the responsibility of you as a parent need to know what to buy for your kids. I remembered my mum always goes for a size up for my primary school shoes, knowing that she will need to buy a pair of bigger sized shoes for me after 6 months. This is understandable and also reasonable. As parents, you know your kids would be grow out of the shoes before the shoes wear out, so you will let them pick what they like, compromising with what is best for them. Although it is not always the case that this certainly will have bad impact on your kids’ foot or walking pattern in later life, it can be happened.
Shoes recommended by Podiatrist
Here we recommend shoes that are recommended by Podiatrist. The fact is that everyone wears shoes, and not all of us know how to buy a good pair of shoes. Some branded shoes are designed for certain purpose. Those could be for fashion, softness, support,heavy-duty, school, work, sport, daily walking and so on. Different stages of life need different pairs of shoes, there are no one answer/way in choosing shoes for entire life. However, for kids, they need supportive footwear.
The ultimate goal
At the end of the day, I hope you are able to make the right decision to buy the right shoes for your kids, and being able to guide them on what to look for when buying a pair of good shoes.
