Christmas is a special time of the year, a time when families come together and spend quality time with each other. Children love Christmas, they get to be around the people they love and they enjoy getting presents!
Now that the holiday season is upon us we need to start getting ready for Christmas! Are you looking for a pair of shoes to match your kids’ Christmas outfit? Maybe you are just looking to surprise your child with a pair of his/her favorite super hero characters shoes or a pair of princess shoes for your girl?
I have met with several parents who don’t allow their kids to wear light up shoes, and I get it, they believe a “shoe should be a shoe”, and it should have good support and structure for everyday wear.
Well, this might be the perfect time to lighten up and let your kids be kids! What if I told you that there are certain light up shoes that provide good support for everyday wear?
Let me worry about presenting you with a selection of good, supportive light up shoes that can be worn as everyday sneakers, and let you worry about making your kids happy this special day!
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 6 years now, and we fit children that have foot problems such as foot pain, flat feet, knocked knees… you name it! I understand the importance of well fitted, supportive shoes for children, and I only review shoes that are good for their feet.
Shoes For Christmas – The Best And Most Supportive Styles!
The shoes that I will describe throughout this post have enough support for them to be worn as everyday sneakers, which basically means that they can be worn to physical education class, while running around in the playground, and while play sports at recess!
Most girls love wearing sparkly shoes! I have experienced this because every time they come to the store and moms ask them to look at the shoe display to choose a shoe, they always go for the brightest, most colorful shoes in the whole display wall!
Mom’s immediate reaction tends to be: “No honey, pick another one…” even though she was the one who told her to choose!
I know some parents are skeptical of allowing their kids to wear these types of shoes, but if you are going to ever let your children wear them, Christmas is the perfect time of the year to do so!
Let kids be kids, let them have fun! Let them show their friends how beautiful the shoes they chose are!
Children love light up shoes! Consider getting your child a pair of light up shoes which are in fashion now, and your kid may have been asking you for a while to get them. Light up shoes are also called “Led shoes”, and they are the perfect accessory for events and parties. They produce different flashing lights that will catch people’s attention, and the colors produced are also dazzling and bright!
I wrote a post where I describe the best light up shoes for kids’. You can find them here:
Are you worried that light up shoes might end up hurting your kids’ feet? While some light up shoes are heavy and bulky, some are lightweight and flexible, and they are available in different widths from medium, wide, to extra wide!
Are you still skeptical of getting your child a pair of light up shoes? Do you find them annoying and obnoxious? Well, this is the perfect time of the year to please your children and allow them to wear light up shoes! Are you worried that they don’t offer enough support for everyday wear?
I know which light up shoes provide more support because I have fitted them all! Below you can find a list of light up shoes that are appropriate for everyday wear!
All of these shoe styles fit “true to size”, which means that you need a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
You might be asking yourself where on earth your child got the idea of light up shoes? Sometimes a a friend in school has them. Other times when your child is watching cartoons on television, shoe companies promote their light up shoes during the commercials.
It is a known fact that children tend to act like or mimic who and what they watch on TV. How do you think your child will feel when you buy them shoes that have Captain America prints on them? Some styles have Batman, Superman, Hulk, Star Wars… you name it!
There are also princess shoes for your daughter, from the movie Frozen, to Cinderella, to my Little Pony, etc. Now, besides everyday shoes for Christmas, there are other types of footwear that comes with characters prints such as rain-boots, snow boots, slippers, slip-ons. So if you don’t want to get your child a pair of sneakers, you can always find something else that can match his or her Christmas outfit!
Around Christmas time children like to dress with a particular type of outfit. I associate Christmas with happy, bright colors! A pair of light up sneakers will match perfectly with his or her Christmas outfit!
However, sneakers are not the only type of footwear you can get your child to enjoy on Christmas, there are other type of shoes that come with character prints on them. Take a look at some examples below!
All of these rain boots fit “true to size”, which means that you need a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
Christmas is one of the most special days of the year. Even though the euphoria of the Christmas season might seem never-ending, remember it doesn’t last forever, so buy things for your kids that will be useful even after the Christmas period!
Some parents are able to afford several pairs of shoes for their kids, but most of them don’t! All you need to know is that one supportive pair of shoes is all your child need to keep his or her feet healthy!
Of course, there is also seasonal footwear such as sandals or snow boots depending on the time of the year!
If you are looking to provide your child with a pair of regular, everyday running shoes, I wrote a post where I describe the styles that are the most supportive for them. The styles that I describe also come in medium, wide, and extra wide widths! You can find the post here:
If you decide to get your kids’ a pair of shoes to wear for Christmas, remember to get them a style that they will be able to wear even after Christmas is over! PLEASE remember: children may get carried away with receiving during the holiday season, but there are plenty of opportunities to give during this time of the year. It is the perfect time to explain to them how important it is to give to less fortunate children by becoming involved in charity and donations around your area!
Now you can keep your kids’ feet healthy by providing your child with good supportive shoes!
Let kids be kids! Happy Holidays!
