5 Tips on How to Find the Best Shoes for Young Girls

Buying a pair of high-quality, durable and comfortable footwear for your little girl could be one of the most important purchases you make this year. FM Footwear website has a wide range of durable footwear available for young girls, in a variety of sizes and colors. Here are five useful tips on how to find the best little girls shoes.

Shoes for running and sports

If you little girl is planning on becoming an Olympic athlete when she’s older, or just enjoys playing sports with her friends, a good-quality pair of sneakers is one of the most important items of clothing you’ll ever buy her. Choosing the wrong type of girls shoes could even lead to injury, causing your child to give up playing sports.

  • When choosing a sports shoe for your little girl, consider the arch of her foot which will help you decide on what type of shoe to purchase.

    • There are three foot arch types; neutral, low and high. When a child’s foot lands, if the foot rolls naturally and with ease, they have a neutral arch. If they land and the foot rolls inwards they have a low arch, and if on landing, the child’s foot rolls only to a minimum, they have a high arch. This will help you decide on what type of running shoe to buy for her.

  • Sneakers with stability are aimed to provide rear foot support for children with neutral foot arches.

  • Shoes with extra motion control are specifically designed for children with flat feet, whilst cushioned sneakers are high flexible and can be worn by children with high arches.

  • Jordan girls shoes have designs starting from pre-school girls and their sneakers are available in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Get her feet measured

Always make sure you know the correct size of your child’s foot. These should be measured at the beginning of the day to ensure accuracy as feet can swell slightly by the end of the day. If you want to get your child’s foot professionally measured, always ask her to wear a part of socks to the fitting.

Shoes must be comfortable

Whatever girls shoes you buy, ensure the shoes laces are not tied too tight and this will cause discomfort and even pain for your little girl. Once you have purchased new footwear for her, look for space at the heel, sides and toe in order for ease of movement. If you can squeeze your finger down the back of the heel of the shoe, this will mean that your little girl can take off her shoes easily. Dansko Professional has a range of shoes that are extremely comfortable and the company is known for producing footwear with its signature clog style. Vans girls shoes are also extremely comfortable and can be used on different terrains, ideal if your child is playing sport on a racetrack or football pitch.

Recycle old shoes

Experts suggest that new girls shoes should be purchased for your child every six months or so. This is because the shock-absorbing ability of footwear decreases with every step your child makes and if your little girl wears old shoes she could risk doing damage to her feet. Recycle old footwear or donate them to charity.

Choosing the right shoe

Most childrens shoes available at Fmfootwear.com have some type of fastening device such as shoe laces, Velcro or poppers. This avoids the child slipping or causing damage to their feet. When shopping for shoes for your little girl, look out for footwear made from materials such as canvas or leather as these will help to keep the child’s foot dry and cool and help prevent the development of odours, discomfort, blisters, cuts and sores. Avoid any large heel on a shoe as these are bad for foot development and your little girl might find it hard to walk in these. Flat shoes with even soles are more advisable. Always consult with your child about what shoes they like and would be prepared to wear. Once you have both chosen a style, look and see if there are other colors available that she might like which will help her personalize her own style. A patterned or textured sole can help prevent your little girl from slipping, especially on slippery surfaces.
