Children’s bodies grow at a tremendous rate and the correct shoes can ensure proper bone and muscle development, and also help prevent long term foot and leg problems. Here's our top features of Kids' shoes: Support: Watch your child playing in the backyard and you will see why stable shoes are so important. Look for a firm heel counter and contoured midsole, which will allow their foot to sit right down inside the shoes. For additional support, extra eyelets will allow variable lacing techniques to help customise fit. Durability: All parents will know now tough kids can be on shoes. Look for outersoles made of rubber or polyurethane for longer wear. Double stitching, especially around the toe area will also add to the life of the shoes. Comfort: Don’t allow too much room for growth. Oversized shoes can cause your child’s foot to roll over in the shoe and are also more likely to wear out. Shoes that are too tight can also harm their feet, so check for signs of irritation and make sure they are able to wriggle their toes freely. Having your child’s feet measured regularly, regardless of wear on their shoes, it’s a great way to ensure the correct fit. Cushioning: Children’s bones are still growing and vulnerable to shock so cushioning is very important. Children’s shoes should have adequate midsole cushioning and feel comfortable as soon as they put them on. Just like their adult range, Asics has a wide kids sports shoe range, for every activity.
