Make sure the shoe fits
CHOOSING the right shoe for school for Winter is important for growing feet, but often the choice is complicated by a preference for fashion over function.
All the kids want is what is in fashion, but they’re just not right for school, and are often not suitable for the wet weather.
Mums don’t mind spending the dollars but in choosing the right shoe, they need to be aware of fit, length and width as well as style. Children spend many hours a day in these shoes so they (shoes) need to be sturdy and durable.
If you buy a cheap synthetic shoe you’ll increase the likelihood of tinea (athletes foot) which rises massively in closed-in shoes and wet weather.
When buying, look at the breathability. Leather and mesh are always better options.
Ask your footwear provider to make certain that what you are buying is appropriate- after all, they are the experts.
