It surprises me how fast my daughter grows. It seems like it was just yesterday when we bought her first shoes. Now, just two inches more and we will have the same shoe size. Buying my daughter’s first shoes was very memorable for us. The whole family, including my in-laws went to the mall just for that pair of shoes. She is the first baby in the family so everybody was really excited. It took us almost one hour before we found a pair that we thought was good for her but we were all wrong. She got annoyed by the laces and ribbons and did not stop from crying until we took off the shoes. It was a lesson learned that comfort should be considered first when buying Baby Shoes rather than the design.
Buying your baby shoes can be a daunting task. Aside from the fact that babies are so impatient to try on different shoes because their basic concern is to buy toys, there are important factors to consider as well. One important factor is the material of the shoes. The upper material should be soft and porous to allow air and the sole should be flexible.
Another important factor to consider is the size of your baby’s feet. You must be very careful about the size because the size of your baby’s shoe can affect his/her foot growth pattern. The shoes must have enough space, neither too narrow nor too big. Poorly-fitter shoes can cause discomfort or worst permanent deformity. I think shoes with riptapes are best for the kids as it can be easily adjusted. Here is the video for the instructions on how to fit properly riptape shoes.
