Toddler Shoe Safety
Toddler Footwear Mistakes

The bones in a toddler’s feet are not fully developed and are soft like cartilage. An ill-fitting or too-tight shoe can cause serious damage.

“The best shoe is no shoe, if you’re inside” pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears says. “It lets the foot breathe and flex.”

He demonstrates how to choose the right baby shoe, such as Pedipeds, which allow feet to develop properly.
