From those early days when your little one is starting to cruise around the furniture, it is important to get your child’s feet measured and fitted for the right shoes to match their foot shape and size. This can seem a little daunting, however, by popping into your local shoe shop they will be able to guide you through the process and help you pick the right shoes for your child.
How to pick the right shoes for your child
Purchase shoes from a reputable shoe shop where a trained shoe fitter will measure your child’s feet free-of-charge. The fitter will advise you if your child needs new shoes and what types of shoes would best suit your child’s foot shape, including the width fitting.
This is the fun part for your little ones, trying on different styles and brands to see which ones fit the best. You will find that over time certain brands will suit your child’s feet more than others, for example, I have found that Sketchers fit Roo’s feet perfectly.
Take a walk
To ensure that the shoes that you have decided upon are the perfect fit and don’t rub or slip when your little one is active now is the time to get them ti strut their stuff so that the shoe fitter can check to see whether insoles or even a width up or down would give a better fit.
