Looking after your child’s feet is a must, having the right footwear to do this not only helps keep them healthy and less likely to pick up any injuries but also teaches them better movement patterns and running technique. I know, crazy given its just a pair of shoes.
For us, the Saucony Kinvara is the ideal shoe for this. It has enough cushioning that they stay protected. Hard-wearing so they will last whatever they throw at them. Finally, they are great for teaching the right way to move.
