Childrens’ feet endure about 3 times more stress than the average adult foot, because of the vast amount of high impact activities of active little feet. To combat the high stress that a child’s foot endures, children should wear correctly fitting shoes with good shock absorption, a well-made foot bed, and durable soles.
Growing Feet in Safe Hands
Given that less than a third of kids have an "average" foot width, we stock a vast range of shoes, many in 1/2 sizes and width fittings to ensure a great fit!
There should be enough space for growth and movement, allowing the smaller and more easily damaged bones in the forefoot to develop without being under pressure (but not too long that babies are tripping over!)
More than just measuring!
Our trained fitters will measure both feet but this is only the starting point to that perfect pair of shoes. Two different styles in exactly the same size and even the same width fitting can differ greatly, so we will check them on the foot and the fitter can make the necessary adjustments, if required, in width, length or toe shape so that a good fit is achieved. Remember when buying on-line from us, each order is dealt with personally by one of the Meany family or Meanys Shoes staff, so we have a wealth of knowledge about the fitting of each shoe. We are on hand to help you when choosing styles or sizes depending on your child’s foot, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!
