Pre-worn or second-hand shoes are a good option.
Friends and family often pass down the clothing and shoes their child has outgrown. While this is a sweet (and sustainable!) choice, it’s not the best option when it comes to shoes for first-time walkers.
Like adults, children’s shoes mould to the feet of the wearer over time—even if they aren’t worn for a lengthy period. The shape, arch, and footbed of one child can be drastically different from another’s, even if they have the same size of feet.
These discrepancies in second-hand and pre-worn shoes can result in an incorrect fit, sore feet, and poor posture, which can all negatively impact proper foot development in growing children.
Buy shoes in a bigger size so your child can grow into them.
A bigger size means an incorrect fit, which can harm a child’s ability to walk properly - especially babies and toddlers who are in the process of attempting their first steps. Our Size Finder not only helps you determine the perfect size for your little one, but it also takes into account their foot width and optimal wiggle room for their toes so they can learn to walk with confidence and ease.
Buy inexpensive shoes as your child will outgrow them quickly.
The quality, construction, and fit of a pair of shoes will directly affect your child’s ability to comfortably walk, run, and move about. While it may be tempting to opt for an inexpensive pair, a quality shoe shaped from the best possible materials will ensure healthy foot development for your child.
We’ve spent countless hours researching the fit, support, breathability, and flexibility needed for children’s shoes. From sourcing eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable and chrome-free leathers, to crafting lightweight recycled rubber soles, we’ve carefully considered each detail of our footwear collections. Our shoes are also crafted by hand by highly experienced artisans - no mass-market factory lines here!
A sturdier sole offers better support.
Children’s feet are not fully developed and are far more flexible than adult feet (babies and toddlers often still have cartilage). For these reasons, children’s shoes need to be soft and malleable to allow for their feet to move naturally.
Babies and toddlers who are just starting out on their walking journey will need soft-soled shoes, while older children need flexible shoes with high-quality rubber soles that grip the ground to prevent slips and falls.
