Examine the Heels of Children’s Shoes
Don’t wait until your children outgrow their shoes to replace them, as the heels of their shoes can become worn out before then. Examine your children’s shoes. If the heels are worn out on the instep, it could mean that they have flat feet. If your children’s heels are worn out on the other side, it could mean that they have rigid feet or high arches.*
Uneven heel wear should warrant a visit to the podiatrist as it could indicate a foot problem. Luckily, store-bought and custom orthotics are available for children too!
