Froddo: Your Guide to the Perfect Fit

Children's feet are special - they grow, develop, change shape, and size rapidly. Therefore, choosing the right footwear for your little ones plays a crucial role in their healthy development and comfort. We understand the importance of selecting children's footwear correctly and are committed to providing quality and comfortable products. In this blog, you will learn several useful tips on how to properly choose shoes for your child.

  1. Measure the Feet

Before you start shopping, measure your child's feet. On our website, you will find a size chart displaying the recommended foot lengths in centimeters for each size. After measuring the feet, compare them with this data to get the recommended size.

  1. Total Inner Length

After finding the recommended size for your child's feet, add 1.2 cm to that length to get the total inner length of the shoe. This addition ensures enough space for growth and comfort.

  1. Space for Proper Development

Children's feet are extremely soft and can easily adapt to shoes that are too small. To ensure proper growth and development, they need enough space. Ideally, you should leave a 12 mm gap between the longest toe and the top of the shoe. This gap allows the child's toes to move freely, which is crucial for proper foot development.

  1. Barefoot Walking

Walking barefoot has its benefits. Whenever possible, allow your child to walk barefoot as it strengthens and trains the foot muscles. Strong and well-developed foot muscles are important for the health and proper development of your child.

  1. Choose Appropriate Footwear for Your Child

More than 50% of children wear shoes that don't fit them properly. This can have a negative impact on their health and foot development. Therefore, it is important to make an effort to find the right footwear for your child.

  1. Different Feet

Children can have different feet, so it is important to check how both shoes fit.

  1. Regular Size Checking

Children's feet grow quickly, especially between the ages of 3 and 6, when they typically grow about 1 mm per month. Therefore, it is important to regularly check the shoe size. The right time to buy shoes is in the afternoon when the feet are swollen and are at their "full size."
