Children grow quickly! Measure little ones’ feet every three to four months.
Poorly fitting children’s shoes can cause a number of problems in adulthood, including hammer toes, ingrown toenails, foot corns, calluses, and bunions. According to a study reported by Consumer Affairs, 65% of children wear shoes that are too small, while 30% of foot issues are irreversible. Given the high level of pain and discomfort that these problems can cause, ensuring that a child’s shoe is fitted appropriately is key to prevention.
The most important factor in children’s footwear is proper fit, preferably by a trained professional.
