Guide to children's shoes


Buying children's shoes can sometimes feel overwhelming because of all the many different factors you need to take into consideration before you can find the right pair of shoes. That's why we have put together a guide to help you make the right choice. In order to avoid limiting your child's natural foot mobility, it is important to choose shoes that are comfortable, i.e. made from soft, flexible, and breathable materials that allow the shoe to adapt to the natural shape of the foot.

Children's shoes made from natural materials
bisgaard children's shoes are made from real leather, which makes them soft, durable, and comfortable. Leather is a supple natural material which over time adapts and conforms to the shape of the foot. This allows the foot to develop naturally. It is also important that the shoes you choose provide a healthy internal climate for the feet, allowing the skin to breathe, which is precisely one of the natural qualities of leather. The soles of the shoe should be soft and flexible so that it follows the natural movements of the foot. That is why we use soles made from natural rubber, which is both durable and also naturally soft and flexible.

Children's shoes with a good fit
A good fit is needed to ensure good support and mobility, especially for very young children. The closures, soles, shaft height, materials, and linings in bisgaard shoes help ensure that they have a snug fit that prevents the foot from gliding around inside the shoe. A pair of bisgaard shoes can therefore be comfortably worn over many hours of fun and play.

Children's shoe care
A pair of leather shoes can last longer with appropriate care. bisgaard shoes should be regularly cared for in order to preserve the suppleness and great look of the leather. That is why it is important to impregnate the shoes from the very start and at regular intervals, as this keeps off a lot of dirt and ensures that the outsides of the shoes are not worn down by the elements more than necessary. Impregnating also has a waterproofing effect on the shoes, which helps keep feet dry. You can care for your leather footwear with beeswax spray, which is easy to apply in the right amounts and helps preserve the suppleness of the material. Shoepolish (either neutral or in the appropriate color) can also help keep the shoes' color from fading. If the shoes are made from suede, a liquid shoepolish can help liven up the color. For suede shoes, we recommend a suede brush that can brush the little hairs into an upward position again.

Room for growth for children's shoes
When measuring your child's foot length, it is important to measure both feet as they may not be equally long. His or her weight should be distributed evenly between both feet. Position their heel against a wall. Then, place a book so that it is touching their longest toe, after which you measure the distance from the heel to the longest toe. You can find the right shoe size with the recommended room for growth in our size guide.
