Babies quickly feel discomfort and show it loudly.
Children's shoes must be perfectly matched for another reason, they are very important for health and affect the correct gait and posture of the whole body. In the Weestep warehouse, you will find footwear that meets all the requirements of the smallest buyers and their parents.
What features should shoes have so that children's legs develop correctly?
Shoes for the little ones are not an easy choice
The requirements for children's shoes change quite often, and you can still find quite contradictory information. A few years ago, many experts advised that children's shoes have a solid sole and a hard heel.
Today the situation is completely different. Most physical therapists advise that the shoes are soft and not restrict the natural movement of the foot. The sole should be flexible, allowing the child to freely bend the foot and toes.
Children's feet develop up to 7-8 years old. Up to this point, the shoes must be perfectly matched, because the feet at this time are very susceptible to any distortion and deformation. Poorly matched shoes can contribute to a crooked gait and poor posture.
Experts advise not to rush to buy the first shoes for babies. They are necessary only when the child begins to walk on the street on his/her own. At home, children should walk barefoot or in socks for as long as possible. Thanks to this, they stimulate the nervous system, explore the world with all senses. Walking barefoot is an important developmental element, so it's worth keeping in mind.
The perfect shoe for the youngest shoppers
At the Weestep children's footwear warehouse, you will buy shoes in which the baby's feet will develop normally. There are a couple of things that should be addressed:
The right size is important
Babies' feet grow very quickly and many parents buy larger shoes. Unfortunately, this is not a very good solution. Shoes that are too large interfere with proper walking, and too small can deform delicate feet.
Shoes should be about 0.5-1 cm larger than the child's foot. Thanks to this, the baby will be able to move his/her fingers freely, the foot will not be squeezed, and the shoes will last more than one month. When walking, the foot is constantly working, the toes move, so there must be a looseness between the toes and the toe of the shoe.
When choosing shoes, you should consider the shape of your toddler's foot, its width and height. Ideally, the child should walk in the chosen model for several minutes, the parents will be able to see if the gait is natural and if the shoes fit well to the foot.
Aesthetics are important too
For children, especially for high school students, the appearance of the shoes is very important. Young people want to look fashionable, but they do not always pay attention to quality. For this, parents should help them in choosing shoes made of good materials.
Girls like shoes, ballet flats or boots, in which they can feel like princesses. Boys choose shoes similar to those worn by their older brothers or fathers. Shoes for them should be durable and resistant to their games. Sports shoes, sneakers are best suited, and comfortable thermal shoes are suited for the winter.
At the Weestep shoe store, you can buy shoes for both girls and boys, which are suited for all occasions that young customers will surely enjoy.
