ugly feet

Postby LOLMum » Wed Jun 15, 2011 11:33 pm

i notice dd's friend at the tender age of 13 already has bunion and the feet really look very ugly.

also notice this seems to be a pretty common problem among ladies. some have the second toe on top of the big toe.

kids' shoes are not suitable for dd now (size too small) and we have to get adult's shoes. have to be extra careful in chooosing shoes for her. headache.

Yes, shoes are very important. All these tight, ill-fitting high heels, even sports shoes are bad. Friend of mine had to go for surgery to correct her feet because of the pain from them.

i dont know if those few hundred dollars branded shoes are really good for kids' feet but those mid range ones selling at dept stores or kids' stores suck.

i really like birkenstock which is really good for kids with wide feet and flat feet too. colette at united square has nice shoes, for running shoes, try geox.

ds has flat feet so birkenstock is good for him, dd too.

Did buy some from colette but DD1 prefer those from dept stores. But observing that those shoes are not doing her feet and and legs any good. So ban them now.........So now looking for alternatives......Colette, did not find anything that suit her

there are various designs for birkenstock shoes, give it a try even if the feet are flat and long.

ds has been wearing them since young and dd who has not so bad flat feet started wearing them recently and loves them.

the other solution is to get a good pair of insoles and wear them with normal shoes. ds is wearing one with his school shoes.

I've never worn a Birkenstock before. Just curious, how different is it from Fitflops? Is Birkenstck better than Fitflops in terms of it's cutting and comfort? Thanks.
