Fitting All Feet
Properly fitting feet takes knowledge and skill. Shoe Train’s “conductors” are seasoned professionals who are experts in fitting children’s shoes. Bones in children are not fully developed. If a shoe is not properly fitted, then the body’s biomechanics can be altered. Checking the toe is not enough. Width is key and therefore the instep should never be ignored. At Shoe Train we understand that the shoe gets fitted from the widest part of the foot. In other words, width always comes before length.
