Back to school time is here and what your child wears on their feet is just as important as the clothes they wear. The perfect Shoes for your child will depend on what their typical day is like. Choosing the right shoe for them is very important to their feet feeling comfortable and to them enjoying their day. It’s also important to make sure that the shoe is stylish and reflects your child’s individual personality.
It is pretty easy to choose a pair of Shoes for younger children. As toddlers, children need the support of a Stride Rite to help them gain control of their footing. As they grow older and have walking down pat, they may be ready for a pair of crocs. Crocs are versatile, come in all colors and have patterns that can add a little playfulness to a child’s outfit. Crocs also give little feet room to breathe.
As children get older, they get more active. Once a child enters kindergarten their shoe needs may change some. I have found that Nike is the shoe that my son enjoys for all day wear. If he wears his tennis Shoes in the morning, then he does not have to take an extra pair of Shoes to change into at school before recess.
There are many great tennis shoe brands such as Reebok, Adidas, Converse and DC. Most of the brands have a great collection of running Shoes, aerobic Shoes, cleats and other tennis Shoes to fit whatever your child’s sports needs are. In addition, Nike usually will offer a group discount on Shoes through popular websites such as Eastbay.
For a young girl, wearing sandals in the morning may feel more comfortable. Jessica Simpson has a great collection of Shoes for babies and young ladies. Different prints and styles can help you make sure that your little girl’s style is on point.
It is just as important that a young lady have an athletic shoe available for recess. You don’t want your daughter having to play on the dirty playground in her sandals or having to run in gym class without the appropriate support on her feet. Having a pair of Keds can help a young woman be stylish, while also being prepared for any outside activities during the day.
The right back to school footwear is important for many reasons. Your child should be comfortable and at ease if they are wearing the right type of shoe. If they are wearing the wrong type of shoe, they will not enjoy their day. Make sure to take your child’s activities into account when choosing their new footwear.
