Science and Children’s Shoes

Appropriate shoes are essential to the healthy growth of feet. As such, inappropriate or low quality shoes risks impairing the child’s growth and have serious consequences in the future.

What type of shoes should be chosen? What makes a good shoe? What shoe size is right? Those are all questions parents must be able to answer.

Scientific data about children’s shoes remain blurry to this day. Worse even, the different scientific and clinical sources often provide contradictory information.

It’s important to check multiple sources to form your own opinion. To know how we feel, and to benefit from our advice regarding children’s shoes, we invite you to read the questions and answers in the following section of our website.

On What Did We Base Our Opinion?

My father was the owner of an orthopaedic shoe store for 44 years. Patrice Roy Chaussures has been an outstanding institution in the field of retail sale of shoes in the Estrie region. The store had a busy service for children’s shoes.

During my youth, I worked alongside my father. I have witnessed many who were afflicted by foot conditions that no one and no medicine could resolve. These people relied on us to help them. This is probably one of the main reasons I decided to study podiatry.
