I have always wanted to buy a pair of shoes for a child, and I thought I was quite lucky because the second I heard that a boy was seeking them, I searched his local shoe store for months. I finally got one! I was so happy! I love that I can wear one pair of shoes for so long, without having to go back and purchase another pair. This also makes it easier to find shoes that are suitable for a child.
As a parent, you’re probably always searching for the perfect pair of shoes for your kid, or are at least thinking about it. Most shoes, even if they have a name like Nike, Vans, etc, are not suitable for children. They are often too small and too many things can go wrong.
I think that most parents would agree that the best way to give your kids shoes is to buy them from a local shop. So when we came across veja shoes, we decided to give them a go. I love that they have great quality, and that they are reasonably priced. The only thing that bothered me was that the fit of the shoe seemed to be more like a teen shoe than a baby shoe. For some reason, it didn’t quite fit my little guy.
So we set about figuring out what the problem could be. It turns out the shoe wasnt that bad, but rather than go shopping, we decided to go and try on a couple more pairs. The first pair we tried on were much better, but after changing the little guy (who is now over 6 months old), we decided it was time to try on a new pair. We tried on a pair that was really small, and it didnt fit us too well.
The next pair we tried on were a little smaller, but we were hoping these would be a little better fitting. They were, and the little guy cried when he saw them. So we tried on a third pair, and I think we got a deal. So now we’re going back to the shoe store and getting a different pair.
We went into the shoe store, and I picked up these cute pink shoes. But the shoes looked really cheap, so I took them home and tried them on. I felt like these shoes were much better fitting, and the little guy who is now over six months old was ecstatic when he saw them. So we tried on a last pair, and they were a little bit better fitting, and he was screaming his little heart out when he saw them.
This is the kind of thing that makes me question the whole “wear-to-work” thing. Kids should be getting shoes that fit right. So many of them are a size larger than their actual feet. These kids weren’t a size 12, so I’m sure they were feeling the impact of the shoes as they walked around.
The last pair of shoes they tried on was a size 14, and his first was a size 12. They still fit, but the size 12s were getting a little uncomfortable because the heels were way too high, and the kids were a little bigger.
There are a lot of shoes in the world. And when you have kids, you need to get a few of them that fit. Because if you find a pair of shoes that fit a size 12, you’re going to be wearing them all day.
The way I look at it is these 12″ pairs of shoes are the same size as a pair of size 12″ shoes. So unless I see those on sale in the next couple weeks, I’m going to have to settle for a size 16 shoe.
