The main purpose of shoes is to protect your feet from the surface that you walk on. A baby that is not yet walking doesn’t need shoes. Even toddlers usually don't need shoes while they are moving about within the home.
Once your child starts walking outside the protected environment of the home, they will need shoes to protect their feet. Poor fitting shoes can lead to foot deformities, so it’s important that you get shoes that fit properly right from the very start.
Here are some pointers for making sure your child has the right shoes:
Children don’t always complain when shoes start feeling tight, so it’s important you check regularly that your child’s shoes still fit properly. Make sure there is a 1cm space between their longest toe and the end of the shoe. If there’s not, it’s time to get a new pair of shoes.
