I mentioned I'm the mother of three children, ages 8,5, and 2. Needless to say they keep me running around. I'm always amazed by how active they are throughout the day, and also how quickly they can hit the wall, and complain of tired feet. Do you know what I've learned? The shoes that I have bought my children don't always provide all the cushioning and support they need. I've tried everything from $15 shoes from the box-retailers to $65 shoes from the latest and greatest European designers. What I've found is that even the most well-made shoes don't have adequate support in the arch - and that's why children's feet get sore and tired faster than ours!
What's the solution?
There are a few good shoes for children that I've found give the best arch support - Merrills come to mind here. But, as we all know, many times styles dictate what our children wear, not function. So, how do you balance the need to give your kids' feet good support and comfort with the desire to get those cute shoes they love? In a nutshell, Arch Angels. With Arch Angels, you can put our comfort insole in any closed shoe, and move it around from shoe to shoe. If you're anything like me, your kids have 3 or more different pairs of shoes at a time. You can use Arch Angels in all of them, and be assured their growing arches are getting the support they need on the inside while they wear the cool shoes they love on the outside.
