5 Reasons Why Your First Pair of Baby Shoes Are Important

Buying your baby their first pair of shoes is a major decision. Simply choosing a pair of shoes because they look cute could actually harm your baby's feet. Instead of just choosing a pair of shoes for their looks, you need to be aware of the factors that make them a good choice in terms of foot development and mobility.

 

1. Allows for Maximum Flexibility

An infant's foot is heavily padded with fat to protect the delicate bones. As your baby grows, the fat gradually disappears allowing the foot to become more flexible. The shoes you choose need to be made from materials that let your child flex their feet easily and without restricting their movement.

2. Comfort

Putting your child in their first pair of shoes may meet with some resistance from your little one. It's important that their first pair of shoes be as comfortable as possible. In this case, comfort means very little pressure over the sensitive areas of the feet and their toes must be able to move freely, providing your child with the sensations they need when they start to take their first steps.

 

3. Stability

When it comes to walking, your child's first pair of shoes must provide stability and support. While their first steps are often rather shaky, their shoes must be able to support their weight without binding or restricting their movements. Sturdy materials, like the flexible, soft soles used in Bobux shoes, are key factors in providing the stability your child needs to learn to what with confidence. The more steps they take, the more confident they will become.

4. Doesn't Inhibit Development

Your baby's feet are constantly growing and changing. Their first pair of shoes may only be worn for a month or so before they need to be transitioned into a different, more flexible pair. It's essential to ensure that your child's feet are able to move as freely as possible. Keeping a close eye on your child's feet and how their shoes fit will help you to determine when you need to put them in a bigger size.

5. Quality Materials and Workmanship

Even though your child may only wear a pair of shoes for a few months, that doesn't mean you should buy a cheap pair of shoes. Premium leather and other quality materials will ensure that your child is as comfortable as possible when they have their shoes on. The higher the quality and workmanship, the better your child's shoe will fit their feet. Higher quality also means more thought has been put in the design of the shoe.
