Children's running shoes: your guide to the best footwear for young athletes
Whether your child is a budding track star or just loves running around in the park, choosing the right pair of running shoes can make all the difference. In this guide, we'll take you through everything you need to know about children's running shoes
Understanding children's running shoes: functionality and design
When it comes to children's running shoes, functionality and design go hand in hand. The best footwear provides support where it’s needed most while also allowing natural foot movement. Look out for features like flexible soles, cushioning for shock absorption, breathable materials and durable construction that can withstand energetic play
Finding the perfect fit in children’s running shoes
Proper fit is crucial when selecting children’s running shoes. Too small and they can cause discomfort; too large and they could lead to tripping or injury. It’s recommended that there should be about a thumb-width distance between the end of your child's longest toe (which isn't always the big toe) and the end of their shoe
Caring for your child's running shoes
Once you've found those perfect childrens' running shoes, maintaining them well will extend their lifespan significantly. Encourage your child to unlace before removing their shoes to prevent stretching out. Regularly check for signs of wear such as thinning soles or worn-down heel counters which might mean it’s time for a new pair!
Remember that every child is unique – what works perfectly for one young runner may not work at all for another. Use these guidelines as starting points but always listen to feedback from your little athlete themselves - comfort is key! Here at Sportamore we have an extensive range designed with every type of young runner in mind.
