Proper toddler shoes is very important to ensure your little ones' safety as they learn to walk and run.
Here are some points to note on safety of children before you buy your child's footwear :
The most important thing to remember when choosing your toddler shoes is that their feet are still growing. This means that flexibility in the shoe is essential. To test the flexibility of a child’s shoe, grasp the toe of the shoe in one hand and the heel in the other, then bend the toe and heel toward each other. If the shoe bends at the part of the sole directly behind the toes, and not through the center of the shoe, it means that the shoe has a steel arch. A shoe with steel arch support is not suitable for a child as it is almost completely inflexible and will not give a child’s feet room to grow or bend.
As well as being flexible under the ball of the foot, the front of the shoe should be deep and wide enough to enable your child’s growing toes to spread naturally. Allow some room for growth in the front of the shoe but no more than an adult’s thumb width. To enable growth there should be some form of adjustment across the top of the shoe, such as buckles, laces or straps. This will ensure a neat fit.
Ill fitting shoes not only affect posture, comfort and physical confidence but also mood and personality. So choose your toddler's shoes with caution.
