Q:  How often should my kids get new shoes?

A: Kids feet will grow very fast.  We recommend shoes be checked every 3-6 months depending on child’s age for proper fit. 

 

Q: Can we just hand these shoes down to little brother/sister?

A: It is not recommended to hand down to friends/siblings even when shoe appears to be in great conditions. The number one reason is each foot is different. The second child wearing the shoes natural gate & foot shape can be altered due to the first wearer's foot. Second, all shoe materials breakdown over time. While a shoe may look good, they could unknowingly cause injury to second user.

 

Q:  Why is it important to get sized and proper fitting shoes when they outgrow them so fast?

A: Shoes that fit correctly are important to foot development and health. As a child grows the foot can easily be manipulated by shoes causing lasting effects or even permanent damage. A shoe that is fit specifically for that child’s foot and needs can help keep feet happy and healthy as they grow.
