Common Foot Problems in Kids: How Shoes Can Help

A child's feet are a marvel of bio-mechanical engineering, but they can also be prone to a variety of problems and conditions. These problems range from minor ailments such as blisters and corns to more serious conditions such as flat feet and club feet. Fortunately, the right pair of shoes, combined with the right type of laces, such as our elastic laces , can do a lot to alleviate or even prevent these problems.

Flat feet

Flat feet is a condition where the arches of the feet collapse and the entire sole of the foot touches the ground. While it doesn't always cause problems, it can lead to foot and leg pain in some children.

How shoes and laces can help:

Shoes with good arch support can help feet form a natural arch and can reduce discomfort or pain. In addition, using elastic laces can reduce pressure on the arch of the foot, making the shoe feel more comfortable.


Clubfeet is a congenital condition in which the foot is turned inward and downward. It is usually treated with a range of treatments, including physical therapy, plaster casts, and possibly surgery.

How shoes and laces can help:

After treatment, specially designed shoes or boots can help maintain the correction. Elastic laces can help the child put on and take off the shoes, which can increase independence.

Ingrown toenails

Ingrown toenails, where the nail grows into the skin on the side of the toe, can be painful and lead to infection.

How shoes and laces can help:

Shoes with adequate room in the toe box can help relieve pressure on the toes, which can reduce the likelihood of ingrown toenails. The addition of elastic laces can increase the flexibility of the shoe, providing extra comfort for the foot.
