Are you having a hard time finding a pair of high heel boots for your child? I have noticed how there is only a small selection of high heel boots for kids, and if your child has a particular foot shape such as narrow or wide feet, then you will have an even harder time finding them.
I know exactly which high heel boots are better than others in terms of support and stability from having fitted them before.
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and the way they fit. This is a specialized shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. We carry some of the most supportive children’s shoes and orthotics, and I am familiar with which shoe brands and which shoe styles are better than others.
Parents need to know that any type of shoe with high heels can become problematic and cause foot issues, since they might compromise your child’s stability and make your child more prone to falls and injuries. Also, keep in mind that any shoe with a high heel will limit your child to wear it infrequently and for a couple of hours at a time.
The advantage of providing your child with a pair of high heel boots is that they are safer to wear than any other type of high heel shoe. For example, high heel dress shoes limit your children to wear them for special occasions every once in a while and for very short periods of time. High heel boots are easier to walk in and can be used for different activities. Now you can provide your child with the fun shoes she always wanted with the peace of mind that she won’t hurt her feet or legs.
Most parents are skeptical with the idea of buying their kids high heel shoes because they are scared that something might happen to them, and I totally get it… I wouldn’t want to provide my children with a pair of shoes that might put them at risk of falling and injuring themselves.
I will provide you with a selection of the best kids high heel boots shortly, but first let me show you how you can figure out your kids foot size from home.
