Is it time to check-up on your Child's mid-year foot growth?

Can you believe it? We are halfway through the year already. Roll-in the July holidays where our kiddos revert to an almost newborn state of 2-hourly feeding and we as parents are left wondering how a litre of milk disappears so fast!

It may be time to check-up on your Child's mid-year foot growth because those growth spurts have a habit of presenting the night before school is due to start. As we all know, there is nothing more uncomfortable than having your feet squashed into shoes that do not fit and the long-term effects can be detrimental.

If you think about it, the human body is so malleable, even more so with little feet that are predominantly cartilage during the formative years. It stands to reason that shoes that provide the space to move and grow are best.

Learn more about it here - where our director and shoe guru, Sarah goes into more detail about the Barefoot School Shoe Range from Froggie.

Have a look at our Froggie school shoes below, each pair made with your little one’s feet in mind:

School Shoes for Boys
