Isn’t it so exciting to see you little one takes the first step? It’s time to get her/him a pair of comfortable and supportive shoes.
There are so many options in the marking which do not make our life easier. I am going to share with you what to look for and why they are so important.
Facts about our feet:
1) Young children’s feet are partially all cartilage, poorly fitting shoes can cause problems that last throughout their lives. Bone grows stronger toward the directions they accepting pressure which means having a good alignment is critical. A nice and supportive shoe should do a good job on keeping those small feet in place.
2) The majority of bone development occurs by 7 years old which means the shoes worn before age 7 can significantly impact foot development. The process of this becoming bone, and strong muscles that support the entire weight of the body is only finished around age 16.
Here you can see the clear difference between a toddler foot and an adult foot.
