Finding the right shoes for your children is important in ensuring that their growing feet will remain comfortable during school. It is recommended that kids with low arches will need shoes with control and stabilization while children with high arches should look for shoes with shock absorption. Always measure your children’s feet without socks on and shop later on in the evening, as our feet swell throughout the day. Children’s shoes should always be changed often as their feet are always growing.

Making sure that your children maintain foot health is very important as they grow up. If you have any questions contact Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Keeping Children's Feet Healthy

Having healthy feet in childhood can help prevent medical problems later in life, namely in the back and legs. As children grow, their feet require different types of care from birth to school-age.

Although babies do not walk yet, it is still very important to take care of their feet.

  • Avoid putting tight shoes or socks on his or her feet
  • Allow the baby to stretch and kick his or her feet to feel comfortable

As a toddler, kids are now on the move and begin to develop differently. At this age toddlers are getting a feel for walking, so don’t be alarmed if your toddler is unsteady or ‘walks funny’. 

As your child gets older, it is important to teach them how to take care of their feet

  • Show them proper hygiene to prevent infections such as fungus
  • Be watchful of any pain or injury
  • Have all injuries checked by a doctor as soon as possible
  • Comfortable, protective shoes should always be worn, especially at play
