Today’s busy parents are increasingly turning to the Internet to do their shopping — from buying groceries  to appliances. But, shopping for kids’ shoes should be left to the expertise of a shoe fitting specialist in a brick-and-mortar store, according to New York-based sports podiatrist Lori Weisenfeld, DPM. “I have parents who bring in their kids [complaining] of pain in their toes or ingrown toe nails,” said Weisenfeld. “It can be that the shoe is too small. Kids grow quickly.”

While parents may think achieving a proper fit means simply checking for the right length, you need to think again. There are a range of considerations when fitting a child for shoes. “It’s important to know if your kid has flat feet, or feet that turn in or out,” explained Dr. Weisenfeld, while some children pronate and therefore may require additional support in their shoes. “It’s important to have children evaluated by someone who can check their foot type and direct you to the right shoe, and also important to have a professional such as a podiatrist check them out.”
