Guide to boots
Bisgaard sells a variety of elastic, lace-up and Velcro closure boots that have a good fit and support for the foot. The upper is made from calf skin leather and the lining of most of the boots either consists of calf skin leather or natural wool. This results in a healthy internal climate for your child's feet.
Natural leather boots for children
Bisgaard's boots are carefully designed with close attention to detail and materials. The quality of the boots can be seen as well as felt. Boots can be used all year round in all sorts of weather once they have been 'worn in'. If the boots are worn often, it's important that they are given some time to dry after use. Never place real leather boots on a radiator or warming cupboard, as this may dry out and crack the leather.
We suggest spraying beeswax on the boots regularly. The benefit of using beeswax spray is that it is easy to apply the correct amount and can help preserve the leather's natural suppleness. You can also use shoe polish if the color has begun to fade. If the boots are made from suede, you can use a liquid shoe color together with a suede brush which brushes the hairs back up again.
A great fit is important. The boots should fit snugly around your child's feet with support from the rigid heel cap, as the heel may otherwise slide upwards while walking. Boots with laces and Velcro help ensure a snug fit around the foot and good support. Boots with elastic are easy to put on. The natural leather and soft outer sole (made from natural rubber) gives the boots a flexible and natural suppleness. It allows your child to keep them on all day as they are both highly comfortable and breathable. Several of our winter boots are made from waterproof TEX membrane that allows the feet to breathe while also keeping the inside of the boots dry.
Intelligent design and meticulous details
Bisgaard boots have a great deal of attention to design and detail. We do not compromise on quality and all our natural materials are hand-picked. We carefully consider the design and details of our boots. As well as basing them on current trends and fashion, we always have comfort and practicality in mind. Our designs range from classic Chelsea boots to more sporty varieties.
Room for growth in children's boots
We recommend buying boots with an additional 1 to 1.5 cm of room for growth. In order to find the right size, measure your child's foot from their heel to their longest toe. We suggest having your child stand with their heel against a wall, placing a book by the longest toe and measuring the distance between the wall and book. You can find the right shoe size and recommended room for growth in our size guide.
