Fleet Feet Sports Promotes A Healthy Kids Lifestyle
Half the battle of getting kids active is making it fun and exciting. At Fleet Feet Sports we have a number of youth running shoes and accessories to help your kids get excited about living a healthy, active lifestyle!
Many of the foot problems we experience as adults stem from poor foot health in childhood. Shoes that aren’t long enough, wide enough or don’t have proper support can stunt growth and form abnormalities that become problems later in life. It is important to remember that your children’s feet are rapidly growing and should be checked every several months to ensure the shoes still fit properly and are not restricting growth.
Our FIT Advisors will spend time with you and your child, taking measurements, watching them walk or run, and getting to know your childs needs in order to find them a shoe in the correct size with the proper amount of support. We carry a selection of neutral and stability shoes for kids in sizes 1 through 6 and your kids are sure to love our selection of quality youth running shoes!
While a quality running shoe is a great starting point for getting your kids active, we also offer accessories that can help them succeed!
We recommend kids wear non-cotton breathable socks for the very same reasons we recommend them for adults!
- At rest, the average foot releases ½ cup of sweat each day
- Two trillion bacteria live on your feet (that’s 12% of all bacteria on the human body)
- The naked foot temperature is 94 degrees. The non-active foot in a shoe has a temperature of 105-125 degrees and this temperature increases with activity level
In addition to adult sizes, we carry Balega youth socks to help keep your childs feet cool while being active.
