My son Aiden has inherited his father's high arches and his poor feet get so sore! We have had a terrible time finding him shoes to help ease the foot pain.
I have done some research online about foot pain
in children and found some helpful articles
. We will probably need to invest in some custom insoles for added arch support
... but at the rate his feet grow I have been reluctant to do so for financial reasons. We have tried a few off-the-shelf version from Walmart but I couldn't get it to "feel right" for my sensory sensitive child.
We had to buy both of the boys new shoes last week and I tried to be extra-careful picking out comfy shoes for him. I read a few articles on buying and fitting shoes
because honestly? I have a terrible time figuring out which shoes fit right on this kid!
I asked him if I could take a picture of his lovely feet to show you all but he looked at me like I was crazy and gave me this fabulous pose...
Anyone have any suggestions?
