We offer advice for children and adults. It’s vitally important that your developing child wears correctly fitted shoes to assist in the natural development of their feet, we can assist you in choosing the correct size and type. The sizing is not the only focus in correct footwear. The features of shoes are also very important to remember. We recommend wearing shoes with a firm heel counter which helps support the rearfoot and limit lateral and medial collapse. We also recommend shoes that have a cushioned midsole and a sturdy shank to prevent the shoe from folding in half. Shoes should bend at the sole where the forefoot sits, which is the natural flexion point of the foot when you are walking. Footwear should have a fastening mechanism such as laces, buckles or velcro strapping. This stops the foot from moving around excessively in the shoe which can cause numerous issues from blistering to excessive instability. These features are not just important for growing feet but for adults and older people who may find they are becoming unsteady on their feet. The correct footwear is imperative in falls prevention.   If your child is complaining of foot or leg pain then please arrange for an examination. For adults, we can also assist you to choose the correct footwear for everyday use, sports or work that suits both your foot type and activity.
