Does anybody have any views on whether converse trainers are bad for kids feet? I bought a pair for my little boy (18 months) who is walking confidently. But i noticed he has indentation marks on his feet after he has worn them. So I have stopped him wearing them and now he just wears his clarks. But to be honest most clarks are not that cool and generally the shoes dont match all his tracksuit bottoms. So does anybody else have ideas on wether they think converse are any good? or other suggestions? I like camper but they are soo expensive!
It depends on their feet shape, I could never put mine in converse or that style of shoe because they are very flat and dc have high instep so they just didn't suit, and weren't comfy for them. I would take him to clarks atleast to get him measured and find out what they tell you about his foot shape so you can try to find the right ones that will suit him whether u buy it from there or elsewhere, but if the converse are leaving a mark on his foot i think it can't really be good and @ 18 months his speech may not be strong enough to express if the shoes were uncomfy?
