Freedom of movement is needed.
Shoes are should be roomy, carefully designed, and measure to leave the right amount of space for feet to move safely and freely. Protect the feet with a cushion of soft padding without restricting them.

The right shoe size
Your child’s feet grow almost visibly! To be certain that the shoe fits properly, just keep a few things in mind.
- Make sure the heel is against the back part of the shoe.
- Keep the sole of the foot very relaxed.
- Press down lightly at the big toe to check whether there is approximately 1 centimetre between the toes and the toe end of the shoe.
- If your child is very young, open the shoe as much as possible, and push the foot forward as far as possible. If you can insert a finger into the space that remains between the heel and the inner back part of the shoe, it is the right size.
