Between the ages of 1 and 6, feet play an important role in a child's growth and development. Our shoes respond to the specific needs of children's feet during the different development phases.
Which shoes should I choose for my child?
From 1 to 2 years (sizes 4 to 7): starting to learn to walk. Feet are flat, round and chubby: our I LEARN shoes are very flexible to promote natural development. From 3 to 6 years (sizes 8 to 11): walking, running and jumping improves. The feet get stronger and more slender, with the arch beginning to form: our I MOVE shoes are flexible and support the heel
Characteristics of kids' feet (3 to 6 years):
For children ages 3 to 6 who run and jump, you should choose a shoe that protects their feet while also offering good freedom of movement. The Domyos I MOVE shoes also offer great support at the back of the foot. Kids of this age are both developing (height, weight), and increasing their level of physical activity (increased intensity and duration). They therefore need more support and protection.
Choosing the right size
It is between the ages of 1 and 3 that children's feet experience their biggest growth spurt. . You can regularly check their shoe size using our foot gauges in our stores, or on our website in the "which size?" section.
Arch support or not?
At the start of our lives, we naturally have flat feet. From the moment we learn to walk, our arches gradually begin to form as our foot muscles develop. For this reason it's unnecessary to provide arch support in children's shoes (unless otherwise recommended by a medical professional)
The benefits of physical activity at a young age
Regularly doing physical activity from as young age as possible is good for a child's physical and mental development. It helps establish a good lifestyle habit which will reduce the risk of health problems later on in life. Furthermore, doing a group physical activity with others encourages social integration and contributes to a child's personal development.
