Why Are Well-Fitted Shoes So Important for Children?
Properly fitted shoes play a vital role in the healthy development of children’s feet. Experts estimate that 70% of adults suffer from foot health problems, and the majority of these stem from ill-fitting shoes in childhood. The bones in young children’s feet are made from soft and spongy cartilage, which can be pushed out of alignment by shoes which don’t fit properly, so it’s crucial your little one is properly measured.
