Why Quality School Shoes Important For Kids...
Here’s a crazy fact: 70% of our brain’s information on how to walk, run and jump comes from the nerves on the soles of our feet.
We recently went shopping for the back to school shoes. It was interesting to see the different types of kid school shoe shoppers in the stores. Parents in disagreements with their kids, and poor shoe shop fitters trying to please both the kids and parents at the same time.
There was everything from; an 11 year old boy refusing anything else except the new Michael Jordan Nike's, that haven't been released yet, which also come with a price tag of $390.00 when they will be released, to the parents requesting the cheapest pair that were in the store. Plus of course, everything in between.
So it got me thinking; why are quality school shoes important for kids?
When shopping for school shoes, what is it that you and your kids are looking for?

Also, here is a great blog from: Sole Podiatry supporting the importance of quality school shoes for kids.
When it comes to school shoes, the Athlete's Foot Offers: A My Foot 3D Instore Fitting Experience to help with this important process, which is fantastic for getting the perfect school sports shoes for your child/ren.
When it comes to " Back To School " costs, it can be an expense time of the year.
If you are struggling with the costs, then you may be able to receive some help. In Australia, there is a lot of financial support on offer, including "Back To School Subsidies" to assist families struggling with the costs.
So, what shoes did we pick out on our shopping trip?
We hope this blog helps you and your child/ren make informed decisions when you head out to the malls for your back to school shoes. Happy shopping :-)
