Sore Feet in Kids Tip #1

Sore Feet in Kids Tip #1

Grab a pair of structured shoes.

What does that mean? 

Most times kids with sore feet will benefit from shoes with features that provide support for the foot.

What does support look like? 

  • Solid base – should not bend in the middle, wring out or twist
  • Should be firm at the heel counter – the part that cups the heel should be firm and not be able to flex in
  • Should have laces, if not laces Velcro , if not Buckle. (Laces best)
  • Should bend at the toes

This is not a treatment but will help most kids in the short term get out of foot pain.
