Children are very important and therefore we need to care for them and that includes their outward appearance. It is very important to know everything about a product that we want to purchase for our kids. Their well being is very essential and you have to be mindful of what you purchase for your children.
Footwears are a must have for your children. Be it toddlers, teens etc.. They need them to keep their foot warm from cold and to prevent bacterial and virus from infecting them.
Children are very physically active and require shoes made from a breathable material such as canvas or leather. This prevents discomfort and smelly shoes, which can lead to smelling feet.
I would split it into four segments. The first is guidelines when buying new, look kids shoes. The second is how it works. Then avoid oversized kids shoes. Lastly rejects tight fitted kids shoes.
Guidelines When Buying New Look Kids Shoes
When shopping for your children wears is very important that you shop for shoes that will go alongside with your kids wears. The shoes you chose for your children can affect their all round well being. Shoes affect their stamina and alignment, and not rightly fitted shoes can lead to permanent health problems.
I will outline some guideline that you can use to buy new, look kids shoes the next time you have to buy shoes for your children.
1. Purchase the kind of shoes your children like
2. Be sure there is a space between the longest toe and the end of the shoe
How it Works. What Kids Want
Always choose shoes that your child likes, so that they can enjoy wearing them. Your child must like them. Allow your child to give some suggestion as to the style, color and design of the shoe. If you buy shoes your child doesn’t like, it can be a waste of money if he/she doesn’t wear them.
Buying what your children want to make them happy. So make sure they pick their choice. Though, under your guidance.
Be sure that there is a space of about 1.5cm to 2cm (0.5 to 0.65 inches) between the longest toe and the shoe. This space allows the toes to spread out for better comfort and stability. Also, if your child is unable to tie shoe laces, try not to buy shoes with laces for them, until you have thought them how to tie the shoe lace without assistance.
Avoid Oversized Kids Shoes
When buying shoes for your children, make sure the shoe isn’t over seized. Don’t be tempted to go a little larger to try to get a few extra months of wear out of it. Too-big shoes are hard to walk in and could even be unsafe. If one foot is markedly bigger than the other, however, buy to fit the larger one. If the shoe fits, then buy it.
Oversized shoes will cause blisters, foot injury or calluses over time, when your child’s heel and the back of the shoe rubs together. If the shoe fits too loosely, it’s likely to come off during normal wear and can cause gait problems.
Put your finger between the back of the shoe and your child’s foot, along the heel. Your finger should fit snugly between your child’s heel and the back of the shoe.
Reject Tight Fitted Children Shoes
Tight fitted kids shoes can be so uncomfortable for the child. One foot is usually bigger than the other. The bigger foot should determine the shoe size, not the smaller one. Push down on the front of the shoe. It should not be tight over the top of the foot to allow some space for movement. Also shoes that are too small can cause foot deformations, pain and blisters.
Press the outer side of your child’s shoe to feel for your child’s little toe. You should be able to feel the toe, not pressed firmly against the shoe wall, but able to flex within. The fit is too small if the toe presses against the shoe wall.
Check the arch inside the shoe. There should be an “arch support” a contoured piece to fit your child’s foot. The slope of the arch should start at the base of your child’s big toe.
Advice for Parents When Buying New Look Kids Shoes
It’s sometimes confusing when buying shoes for children. All you need to do is watch out for the right features in the shoes you want to purchase for your child.

Do well to follow the outlined tips above and you will definitely see your children happy with their shoes.
