Tips for Finding the Right Pair of Kids’ Athletic Sneakers
It’s of utmost importance that the pair of shoes you buy for your child fit properly and provide support and comfort. Here are tips to help you ensure that the fit of the shoe is correct for your child’s feet:
- Shop at the end of the day
Shop when your child's feet are at their largest, which is typically after a full day of moving, so you know that the shoes can fit as their feet naturally change and expand.
- Measure with sports-specific socks
Your child should be wearing the specific sock that he or she will ultimately wear with the shoes.
- Allow for some wiggle room
There should be a half-inch from the end of the longest toe to the end of the shoe so that your child is able to wiggle all of her toes, to ensure that enough space is provided for the entire foot.
- Lace 'em up properly
For maximum support, use the top eyelet on the shoe, and run the laces through twice. However, don't tie the laces too tightly. This can potentially cause injury to parts of the feet.
- Take a walk!
Allow your child some time to walk around the store in the shoes and ask them how the shoes feel. Also check the inside of the shoes after your child walks in them to identify any extra material, glue or irregular stitching, which may cause irritation.
