In Part 2 of our Shoe Choices for the Developmental Stages: A Physical Therapist Perspective series, Haden Boliek SLP and Kjirsti Myles PT go in depth about foot development in children and shoe choices for ages 3 and up. As children become school-aged, it's important to consider many factors when making their shoe purchases. Haden and Kjirsti discuss what can result from a bad shoe, how to perform a shoe test, and which shoes provide stable support for a child's gait development.
