Podiatry and Children Footwear


Childrens Footwear plays a large role in the development as well as the prevention of foot and toe problems such as bunions, calluses and corns, and hammer, claw, and mallet toes. Shoes that don't fit properly make these conditions worse and more painful.

Key points
  • A comfortable, well-fitted shoe offers you the best chance of:
    • Relieving pain in the foot or toe that is caused by a deformity or joint problem.
    • Preventing a foot or toe problem from developing or getting worse.
    • Preventing a toe joint problem from returning after corrective surgery.
  • Before shopping for shoes for your foot problem, ask your foot health professional for recommendations.
