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...
