Supportive healthy shoes for kids to fix feet
Healthy shoes for kids to fix feet since children’s feet are shaped and mold by the type of shoes they have, therefore it is important to buy ONLY quality shoes for your children. Orthopedic shoes will properly develop your child’s feet, support knee and feet joints, develop arch support and assist in straight gait and posture. Furthermore, your child will be very comfortable while wearing supportive shoes since they are perfect for walking and running.
European children’ shoes are made out of best leathers, offer orthopedic support (arch) have breathable innersoles (no sweaty smelly feet) and flexible soles. They are the best choice for small growing feet. Below is a shoe recommendation prototype that has been used by every European pediatrician to educate parents about footwear needs for their children.
European canvas stable walkers for babies!
The best choice for children that are learning to walk are soft, orthopedic slippers from Europe. Those shoes are made out breathable canvas material, orthopedic innersole, excellent arch and joint support and flexible rubber soles. Furthermore, they stay on little feet due to designer clip that secures the shoe on little foot and at the same time stabilizes the foot. Every baby in Europe learns how to walk in them and wears them throughout their young years (up to 5 years of age). Those canvas shoes/slippers can be worn indoor/outdoor (summer only) and they offer proper support for everyday wear. You can find them in our stores because we are always have them in stock.
Leather comfortable shoes only!
Once your child begins to take first steps (10-11 months of age) it is time to start your baby with supportive shoes. Ankle supportive shoes (high tops) are required for children who are learning to walk. The footwear have to be high, laced, buckled or velcro top with rigid heel that does not get deformed during walk. Those shoes offer excellent ankle and joint support, prevent lopsided heel, (ankle pronation) help with a balance and provide total assurance that little feet will develop correctly. High shoes are recommended up to 3 years of age (size Euro 26/US 9), but if child pronates high top shoes or sandals could be worn even up to size Euro 36/US 5.
No more smelly, stinky kids feet!
Quality shoes are always made out of 100% leather (inside and out) or breathable canvas. Leather is a soft, pliable material that creates the most comfortable environment for growing feet. Leather innersoles with orthopedic arches are always present in quality shoes. The innersoles conform to child’s feet for natural, supportive yet non-restrictive “landing pad” which is ideal for those first steps. Children’s feet perspire more then adults feet, therefore only European shoes offer breathable innersoles (the little holes in the innersole of the shoe above) that filtrate and air children’s feet while wearing the shoes. (Notice: in the winter your child has always dry, comfortable feet in any European closed shoes or high top sandals since feet never sweat in those shoes).
Only best fitted shoes for your child!
Children shoes have to be flexible to conform to any movement of the feet while stretching, bending and turning. Especially for those taking first steps.
Properly fitted shoes cannot be too big neither too small. There have to be a 1/2 inch of growing room left. The best way to determine growing room is to touch your child’s feet while wearing the shoes. Also, observe the back of the shoes while your child is walking because the foot has to fit comfortably inside the shoe with a little movement. The heel cannot “fly out” of the shoe making it difficult to walk. Children’s shoes have to be fitted meaning appropriate style with flexible sole have to be chosen in order for your child to walk comfortably. EUROPEAN SHOES OFFER ARRAY OF WIDTHS
If your child has:
narrow feet – narrow soled shoes
regular to wide feet – medium to wide soled
double wide feet – wide to extra wide soles shoes
Foot growth in children
Children’s foot growth is all dependent on individual body mass and age. Meaning, chubby infant babies that are beginning to walk, need new shoes every 4 months versus slimmer, petite babies (or preemies) often outgrow their shoes in 8-10 months. In other words, the chubbier the baby than feet grow faster. Once the child passes age of three years, they loose “baby fat” and their feet usually slim down. New shoes are needed every 6 months on average. The growth process continues until they are fifteen years of age. Two pairs of quality shoes are required for rotation per season. It is important to remember that it is best to buy two pairs of quality shoes vs poorly made ones.
Buy only quality shoes for your child!
It is important NOT to rotate between quality, orthopedic shoes and poorly made ones, simply because quality shoes shape and mold kids feet and cheap shoes cause foot deformation. European shoes are always hand made and measured to average child’s foot. The width and length is perfectly proportioned to create fitted shoes for each size. It is a time consuming process that every European factory is required to follow to guarantee the perfect shoes for your child! This is why European shoes fit so well and always pristine quality!
