What is the fitting ?

The shoe is the set of characteristics of a shoe that allow it to dress the foot correctly and comfortably. The shoe size is of course one of the main data to take into account when choosing the right pair of shoes, but it is not the only one. The fitting is also defined by the width of the shoe, its volume - which is called shape - and its construction.

The ideal fitting

In order for the fitting to be ideal, the foot should not slide forward when walking, the heel should be held so as not to get out of the shoe, finally, the volume in the front should be sufficient during the entire unwinding movement. Their design is similar to that of adult shoes, with additional technical characteristics. Shoes for children who have acquired the stages of walking should require rigorous footwear qualities.

Different morphologies

Each foot ist different. For a same length can the foot be more or less wide. The volume of the instep – its upper part – can be more or less big. Those factors will determine the ideal form for the holding of the foot and its health. Then, we talk about thin, standard or wide fitting. It is essential to know the particularities of the child’s foot to offer a suitable form.

Every foot is different. For the same length, the foot can be more or less wide, the volume of the neck-the upper part-can be more or less important. These factors will determine the ideal shape for maintaining the foot and its health. This is referred to as the end, standard or broad sock. Knowing the characteristics of the child's foot is essential to propose a suitable form.
