Re: Toddler's Shoes

Children who are beginning to walk should be allowed to go barefoot in the house if possible. A shoe is basically to protect the foot from the outside environment. As far as cheap shoes and expensive shoes go, you usually get what you pay for. I never recommend synthetics or plastic or all man made shoes. A leather upper is preferable. A normal child's foo does not need so called ankle support. What did people do for thousands of years before Stride Rite and other stores like them?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
