How do you buy shoes for your child? Rumor: The softer the better, don't think mother chose the wrong shoes

When choosing children's shoes for children, some parents regard "softness" as the gold standard. In their eyes, a good pair of shoes must be soft, so that the child's feet are comfortable. But in fact, a pair of children's shoes seems to be simple, but there is a lot of "specialty" in it. If parents don't know the standard of a good pair of children's shoes, they are likely to make the mistake of "self-righteousness" and choose the wrong shoes for their children. Tongtong's mother has always paid great attention to her daughter's dressing, even though Tongtong is only 3 and a half years old, her clothes, skirts and shoes have already taken up "half of the country" in the closet and shoe cabinet at home. When it comes to buying shoes for her daughter, Tongtong's mother has a lot of experience. When she chooses children's shoes for her daughter, the first thing she looks at is the appearance, whether the color and design of the shoes can match the clothes. The second thing to look at is the softness of the shoes. In her eyes, the standard for a good pair of children's shoes is softness, so as not to deform the children's delicate feet. With these two hard standards, Tongtong's mother will have much more peace of mind when choosing children's shoes. But what she didn't expect was that during a physical examination, the doctor told Tongtong's mother that the child had flat feet and needed to wear special orthopedic shoes to correct it. The doctor's words made Tongtong's mother unbelievable. She has always worn brand-name shoes for her children. They are very soft and do not grind their feet at all. "Are soft shoes necessarily suitable for children?" The doctor asked rhetorically after listening to Tongtong's mother. This time, it was Tongtong's turn to be dumbfounded. She never thought that besides checking the softness of the shoes, there are other aspects that need to be paid attention to when choosing children's shoes for children. In fact, many parents have made the same mistakes as Tongtong's mother. They don't know what kind of shoes are considered a good pair of children's shoes. They often rely on their own past experience to think that the softer the shoe, the better. The doctor at the Shanghai Abnormal Development Clinic also once said that children have various leg problems, such as O-shaped legs, X-shaped legs, and flat feet, which are related to the lack of hardness of the shoes they wear. In a quality spot check in 2020, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Market Supervision found that 12% of the 50 pairs of children's shoes sampled had insufficient hardness, that is, too soft. After seeing these quality inspection results and the opinions of doctors and experts, many parents may not be calm: the "gold standard" for shoe selection that they have always regarded as the standard is actually wrong? So why are the children's shoes on the market now softer than the other? In fact, many merchants are making children's shoes softer and softer in order to cater to the parents' "self-righteous" shoe selection criteria, greed for profit. Softness is not actually the standard of a good pair of children's shoes, so what kind of shoes can be called good shoes?

Selecting children's shoes for children is "special", not just softness, parents have to pay attention to these aspects

According to the hardness When choosing children's shoes for children, parents should not choose according to the softer the better. my country has a standard for the hardness of children's shoes, and the hardness ranges from 45 to 65 Shore. Parents may wonder: why do children's shoes need a certain hardness? For example, there was a time when shoes that had a "feeling on the shit" were very popular. The businessman claims: This kind of shoes with a "feeling feeling" is very soft, and after wearing it, it will make people feel like walking on the clouds and stepping on cotton. For a time, this kind of extremely soft shoes was sought after by many people, and some children's shoe merchants launched a children's version of "shit shoes" while the heat was on. But after wearing it for a period of time, many people find that the so-called "shoes that step on shit" can't bring people a relaxed walking experience. The same is true for children. Just imagine, if children often wear such shoes, the children's arches are not well supported. Over time, the children's feet will lose the proprioception of the ground, resulting in flat feet. When choosing shoes for children, some parents prefer to choose shoes that are one size larger. They feel that children's feet are growing faster and that wearing larger shoes will be more loose and comfortable. This is also a common misconception among parents when choosing children's shoes for children. Although children's feet grow fast, when choosing shoes for children, they still need to be based on the length of their feet. How to determine the inner length of a child's shoe according to the child's foot length? In the season when the child wears thin socks and the temperature is high, the inner length of the child's shoes should be the child's net foot length + 0.5 to 1.0 cm. In the season when the child wears thick socks and the temperature is low, the inner length of the child's shoe is +1.0 to 1.5 cm of the child's net foot length. Only choosing shoes that fit your child's foot size is beneficial for your child's foot development. Shoes that are too large or too small can adversely affect a child's foot development. According to the age and age, the classification of children's shoes is very detailed, including baby shoes, toddler shoes, steady shoes and so on. These detailed classifications are not because businesses are asking parents to pay "IQ tax", but because children at different stages have specific requirements for shoes. Take toddler shoes as an example. For children who are in the toddler stage, the shoes that are suitable for them are shoes with curved grooves in the forefoot. Such shoes allow children to get off to a better start in the stumbling toddler stage, that is, to be able to take the first step. Children who have reached the steady stage need to wear shoes with "three maintenance feet" to better protect the children's feet. When parents choose shoes for their babies, they should choose according to the age of the baby or the age of the month.
