How children shoes should be

12/10/2011 |

From that small beginning to walk alone, footwear becomes an important element that influences their physical development.

They are beautiful, funny, bright colors, full of flowers or pictures of their favorite characters ... and when they become their favorite shoe, they do not want them to be removed.

Ideally, children could wander barefoot. Since that it is impossible, the infant shoes provide the necessary protection and security and prevent them from hurting themselves. Find out how children shoes should be, and what errors you commit when you buy a pair of shoes for your child.

How should children's shoes be ...

Select it in leather or fabric to enhance the child's foot respiration. Never made of PVC or other synthetic material.

Make sure the sole is light, flexible, non-slip. This prevents your child from falling.

The shoe should have a little heel to facilitate the good movement of the joint.

The sole of shoe must be wide and round or square. Do not buy shoes for a child which is narrow in the front.

The shoe must have pretty firm instep with laces, buckles or velcro.

Common mistakes when choosing children's shoes

Choosing too large. Sometimes we buy children shoes with a larger number than the child needs to last longer. The small ones find it is difficult to walk with a shoe that dances in the foot or leaves it constantly. It forces him to adopt positions that are ultimately harmful and can cause falls.

Putting boots that strap on their ankle. If the shoe does not allow the free movement of the ankle, it damages their development. The boots should be used only to protect from cold and moisture.

Abusing of the sport shoes. Children should use them sparingly because most are made of plastic, which promotes too much sweating. This might cause irritation to the feet and even fungus. The best choice is leather or canvas, which are more breathable.

Inherit. Very often small kids inherit older shoes from other children in the family. However, it is an unwise practice, as the feet are always anatomically different and every child has a distinct and particular way of walking. Shoes worn at all times bear the imprint of its former owner, may be deformed or flawed, and it is likely that walking will rub and not to be very confortable. So, unless they are brand new, it is best not to use them.
