Shoes Support More Than Fashion Trends

Nov 25, 2007
Shoes have become a major accessory to any fashion wardrobe but they have been used to support more than fashion trends. The proper sizing of shoes will make them a very comfortable piece of fashion footwear that might meet the needs of teenagers just fine, but the improper sizing of shoes can make a dramatic difference on how a child foot develops.

Some shoes are constructed with cheap materials that do not hold up well after they are worn for a month or two. The arches of shoes that are shoddily made will tend to sag and give a very unimpressive appearance after a short while. Shoes can be very expensive to buy at times because of where they are made, but children should not have to suffer for life because the materials that these shoes were made with were cheap and unsuitable for long term use.

Some parents are wary of buying shoes that are equipped with thin straps. The support features that these simple additions provide are sometimes not up to the task at hand. Many children are not able to secure the strap on the foot because of the way the strap stretches out over time and are left with an unattractive surplus of leather that seems to twist and turn to the point where the shoes can not be worn.

Some buckles that are on used on shoes today support no real purpose because they are merely put on the pair of shoes as a footwear ornament. Some shoes designers use these clever methods to conceal the fact that the shoe design is a slip-on model that has been designed for wear with dresses and more formal apparel. Some parents want to get good use out of every functional item on the footwear that they purchase.

Some parents prefer to purchase shoes with real buckles on them because they know that the shoe will stay securely on the child's foot even if they are involved in fun and games that require lots of running. Other parents prefer to purchase shoes that will offer a child more safety support features. There are many athletic fashion footwear selections that do not have non-skid soles and can not be used for any activities at school because these styles mar gym floors.

Shoes styles often are selected more for the support features to the arch in the foot than they are for the fashion trend that they are so eloquently styled for. Some parents have children with flat feet and will purchase shoe inserts that provide an additional arch support that the child's need for the foot to grow properly.

Some shoes were manufactured with this in mind and now offer children the option of using air compartments for arch support and this development has been received very well by athletes who spend a lot of time on their feet. This support feature can be expanded as the child grows and additional support is possible because these styles of shoes are made with more room in them than others on the market.
