Little Feet and What to Know
When a child begins walking, their feet have not yet fully developed; bones have not fused, fat pads protect soft cartilage, and the arch has not formed. Allowing feet to develop naturally is important for little ones who are beginning to take their first steps, and this means, shoes that promote natural foot development.
First Walker shoes by See Kai Run are lightweight, highly flexible, and allow room for toes to grip and flex, which builds strength and encourages growth.

WHEN TO MEASURE
For children 9 - 18 months old,
measure every 2 - 3 months.
For children 18 months - 3 years old,
measure every 3 - 4 months.
For children 3 years old and up,
measure every 6 - 12 months.
HOW TO MEASURE
Using a paper and ruler, have your child stand with their heels against a wall. Make a mark in front of the longest toe and the back of the heel. Use the ruler to measure the distance between the two marks. If your child intends to wear socks, measure with the socks on. Use the chart below to find their size.
CHECK THE FIT
Always check the fit of your child's shoes. There should be about 1/2 inch of room at the toe. The shoe also should not slip off if you pull on the heel..
