5 Things to Remember
When Buying Your Child's Footwear:

Make sure your child's shoes have flexible soles and a solid heel to with stand playground ordeals and the kicking of footballs.

Check your school's guidelines before buying, this will prevent any nasty shocks on their first day.

Measuring your child for footwear regularly is very important to ensure the long lasting health of their feet.

Allow room for movement and growth, at least half an inch worth of space at the top of the shoe making the shoe last longer and more comfortable to wear.

If possible alternate their shoes, this way it gives the shoes time to dry out.
