Once your child approaches the age of 2 1/2 years old it is the appropriate time to start them in a harder and more shock absorbent sole shoe. The most important thing is that the shoe selected is fully flexible (the sole can be easily bent back on itself) as this will ensure the continued development of their foot muscles for a stable and correct walking technique avoiding any flat-footed problems in the future.
A small child’s foot differs significantly to an adult foot in that 70% of the toddler’s foot is made up of cartilage hence they do not walk like us. Before the age of 3 it is imperative that the correct footwear is selected to promote strong balance, allowing them full movement of their foot and the ability to fully arch their sole.
Our range of toddler/preschooler shoes have been specifically designed following podiatry laws of physiological and biomechanics traits of a growing child’s foot to obtain a shoe that will provide optimal muscle development.
Additional benefits include:
- Lightweight for little legs
- Extra flexible, non-skid sole
- Upper Breathable material
- Anti-backwards movement sole
- Rounded tip for the correct space for little toes to grow and move in
Why not buy your little one a pair of Ankle-Biters Toddler Shoes
THEIR FEET WILL THANK YOU FOR IT!
