Today’s baby shoes are no longer a one-selection option, as designers have created adorable styles, colors and comfortable shoes to reflect any baby’s inner creative side … or in most cases, any parents’ creative fashionable senses.
As any podiatrist will tell parents, being concerned about children’s feet at an early age is a must. Helping add structure to the foot bed and paying special attention to children’s shoes can easily prevent and/or minimize foot problems as they grow from infants and into adults. In fact, podiatry websites offer a great number of shoe fitting tips for children, which is especially important as children grow quite rapidly. Poorly fitting shoes can lead to hammer toes, foot corns, ingrown toenails, calluses, bunions, discomfort and even pain.
Today’s baby shoes, while children may not be walking yet, offer structure, support and even warmth to cover those adorable little tootsies. Baby shoes come in a wide variety of styles, ranging from flip flops, crib shoes, soft sole baby shoes, girls’ shoes, boys’ shoes, newborn booties, crochet booties, walking shoes and leather shoes to dress shoes. No longer are white sandals and black dress shoes the only options available on the baby shoe market, as a variety of colors, styles, accessories and designs now adorn children’s shoes. This makes mixing and matching shoes with outfits more fun than ever and something parents, grandparents and siblings will continually enjoy time and again.
