Back to school?We are brimming with emotion. The first day is fast approaching. The children are the most agitated and the happiest. And we must make sure that their return to school is the most comfortable and enjoyable possible.In other words, what activity do children do from the moment they jump out of bed until they go back to sleep, which is fundamental to their well-being?

Walk! And so that they do it properly, they need good children’s shoes that allow them to walk comfortably and that guarantee a good development of the feet.While we all know that going back to school is an economic effort for parents, we also need to think that saving money on children’s shoes can lead to problems in the future.To prevent this from happening, pay close attention to the advice we give here to choose quality shoes and sneakers for children for this 2016 school year:

Comfortable and healthy

The most important to have quality shoes for children is the health of the feet. All shoes must therefore adapt to the movement requirements of children. And we need to be even more careful between the ages of 3 and 7, when our children’s way of walking is changing the most. With the New Balance Shoes & Appare the deals get better now.

The good development of their feet is essential. Future problems such as calluses, pains or toe deformities can be connected to a bad choice of shoes in childhood.

For this reason we must not hesitate to change children’s shoes when they become small. Or we have to renew them if they squeeze, if they rub their feet or if they are too uncomfortable. This way, we can avoid orthopedic problems in the future.

The best: soft shoes

  • In the choice of children’s shoes for back to school, we advise especially to avoid shoes that are too rigid. These prevent the natural movement of ankles and feet.
  • Back-to-school shoes should be comfortable, cover and protect without ever tightening or squeezing our little ones. This could be vital for their growth.
  • At the other extreme, too soft shoes do not go well either. The laces or the scratch are well suited to support the base of the foot and to prevent children from developing bad movements while walking.

Size of the shoes

The shoes can be large or small, but the ideal is that they reach the bottom of the malleolus (the bones of the ankles). If one day children have to put on boots, it is better if they are as rigid as possible. As we have already said, rigid shoes do not help our children.

Children’s shoes should be soft and comfortable to the touch, loose enough to avoid squeezing and, if possible, with a non-slip sole to prevent falls.If the shoes have a flexible sole, our little ones will have even more comfort.
