While flip-flops are all the rage for the beach and pool, they can create problems in crowded school hallways and getting on and off the school bus. While it may not be easy to coax your children out of flip-flops for school, it's safer for them to wear a shoe with more support. Your podiatrist can recommend some great options for teenagers that may fit the bill in the fashion area while still providing support and comfort throughout the day.
If your children participate in sports in the fall, send them onto the field or the court with properly fitted shoes that are designed for that specific sport. Basketball shoes, for example, are designed for quick stops and starts, and ankle support, while football cleats need to serve an entirely different purpose. Let the shoe fit the sport and try to get help when choosing shoes for each sport.
If your child has a foot problem, call one of our six locations to make an appointment.
