Infant boy shoes in navy blue are the new trend this season. They are stylish and cool. They are also comfortable for your infant boy. They are the right color for the young one too. They match any attire you wish to dress the boy in whether you are just at home or want to take him outside for a bit of parent-child bonding.
As popular as these types of shoes are, do you know how to choose the best ones for your boy?
Below is a guideline to help you select the right shoes.
First, decide whether it is the right time to buy infant boy shoes for your little one. Allow your baby to walk barefoot for as long as he can. However, if the baby starts showing interest in going outside to walk, run around, or play, you may need to consider buying him these shoes. Infant shoes are the best since they provide adequate protection against:
- Dangerous objects
Buy the shoes in the evening. Baby’s feet are bigger towards the end of the day.
Shoes that you buy early in the morning may prove too tight for the baby in the evening.
Shoes with fasteners
Select infant boy shoes with good fasteners. It is easier for you, the boy, or anyone else to remove shoes that have the Velcro fasteners. Avoid shoes with laces at this tender age. Tying and retying the laces, as baby boys are likely to want to remove and wear the shoes as many times as their moods allow, can be a tiring experience.
However, shoes with laces may be ideal if you want them to stay put in the baby’s foot.
Flexible and soft soles
Do not ignore the soles on the infant boy shoes. Soles on these types of shoes should be soft and flexible. The shoes themselves should be soft. Bendable, flexible and soft soles make it easier for the baby boy to adjust his feet accordingly to gain proper balance. The boy needs to feel the ground through the soles. This cannot be possible with thick and hard soles.
Confirm if the shoes have non-skid bottoms. The last thing you want is for your baby to go skidding and injuring himself while playing. Non-skid bottoms provide the traction babies need while walking and running. Non-skid shoes must be flexible though. Some non-skid shoes have non-flexible soles.
Lastly, select infant boy shoes made of breathable and light material.
Confirm that the shoes fit your baby boy properly before you leave the store or make sure you can exchange them easly and at no cost.
