After the long and lazy summer holidays, parents have to turn their attention to buying a good pair of school shoes before their daughters start a new year in school. As young girls have to wear their school shoes for majority of the week, it is extremely important that their shoes fit correctly, and that there is ample foot and ankle support. If your kid’s shoes are ill-fitting, it could lead to unnecessary problems down the line, such as ingrown toenails, corns, and bunions. So it would be advisable to take time and care while shoe-shopping and buy a long-lasting, versatile, and elegant pair of school shoes for your daughter.
These days, the plethora of choices available for formal girl shoes is astonishing. From colors, shapes and styles, your daughter can have her pick from a wide range of attractive shoes on the market. What you want is the perfect balance between stylish and practical when it comes to buying your daughter her school shoes. Choices that range from wedge heels, plimsolls, pretty patents to lace-ups and slip-ons will leave you spoilt for choice.
Some major indicators that it is time for a new pair of girls school shoes are worn-out spaces, stressed seams, bulging, or wearing sides. The first thing to do when you have taken your daughter out shoe-shopping is to have her feet measured. Make sure both feet are measured as sometimes both adults and kids have one foot longer or wider than the other. Also, remember that your girl’s feet will keep increasing in size as the years pass. Check that the widest part of the foot corresponds to the widest part of the shoe being tried. It is important that the heel should be snug but comfy and that the back part of the shoe is strong and steady. Instead of stinting on cash, invest in a pair of shoes that are of a high quality. This will save you money in the long run as the shoes won’t wear-out easily and so you won’t have to replace them during the school year. It is best not to buy second-hand formal girl shoes or those from garage sales. This is because second-hand shoes will have taken the shape of the previous child’s foot and might cause harm to your child’s feet.
Try buying girls school shoes that are made from breathable materials like canvas or leather. These are great options as they are not only durable but also serve to keep your daughter’s feet from perspiring too much and causing uneasiness, blisters, as well as smelly shoes and feet. Choosing the right sole that is either patterned or textured as well as flexible, gives the shoes that extra traction, needed to protect her while playing or running. Sometimes your daughter’s shoes might get scuffed or damaged. All you need to do is find the proper repair and renovating products that are available to help maintain your child’s shoes.
