In early development stages Kid’s feet are rapidly growing in fact, not all bones are formed at birth. Babies are born with only 22 bones in each foot, but by the age of 5, this increases to our adult 26 bones.

The first few years are crucial, as the bones in your child's feet are made of soft cartilage that gradually converts to bone over time. It is therefore essential that your child's feet are looked after from birth to ensure they are fit for life.

The shoes children wear at a young age will impact the way their feet will develop into adulthood. Kids shoes should be lightweight, flexible and allow the child to feel where they are in relation to their environment.
