Did you know that 30% of kids are wearing shoes that aren’t the healthy size for their feet and activities?Close
Did you know? With 200,000 nerve endings, the soles of your feet are one of the most sensitive and receptive parts of your body.
Up to the first 5 years, children will have mostly flat feet.
Babies’ feet are super-soft and flexible until around five years old, when they start to develop stronger bones and ligaments.
Our feet grow the fastest in the first few years of our life. Babies’ feet can grow as much as 12 sizes by the time they’re three years old!
It might sound crazy, but babies’ feet sweat three times more than adults’! That’s why breathable materials are so important to keep your little one comfortable.
The rule of thumb: when buying new shoes, you should make sure your child always has about one finger’s-width of space between their toes and the end of the shoe.
Kids’ shoes should feel comfortable and fit well from the moment they try them on. Shoes that take time to break in are often not designed to let feet move naturally.
Children's feet go through growth spurts. Sometimes, they can stay the same size for a year and then grow a few sizes bigger within six months.
Our feet don’t stop growing and developing until we’re about eighteen years old! And the first seven years are the most important for development.
