The ideal fit

The fit is all the characteristics of a shoe that allow it to fit the foot correctly and comfortably. The 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 fit is also defined by the width of the shoe, its volume - which we call shape - and its construction.

The ideal fit

For the fit to be ideal, the foot must not slide forward when walking, the heel must be held so as not to come out of the shoe, finally, the volume at the front must be sufficient during the entire unfolding movement. Their design is similar to that of adult shoes, with additional technical characteristics. Shoes for children who have acquired the stages of walking must require rigorous fit qualities.

Different body shapes

Each foot is different. For the same length, the foot can be more or less wide, the volume of the instep - its upper part - can be more or less important. These factors will determine the ideal shape for the support of the foot and its health. We then speak of fine, standard or wide fit. Knowing the particularities of the child’s foot is essential to offer a suitable shape.

Working with form is a demanding art that requires experience and know-how. Each model has a different shape to meet the needs of different body types. This is why we offer tailor-made printable pedometers for each of our models, as well as a fit indicator. Our in-store teams are available to advise you and help you choose the shoe best suited to your child's needs.
