How to buy your kids shoes that will actually fit..and last!

It’s a yearly event that cannot be avoided. The trip to the shoe store for a fresh new pair of shoes for the school year. Whether your school requires a certain type of shoe or you just want your tyke to be comfortable, there’s a lot to consider when shoe-shopping.

That’s where Totidem comes in. The store is new to Montreal, but has been designing and manufacturing shoes since 1924.

Here are some things to consider when selecting shoes:

  1. Both of your child’s feet should be measured. Often hurried staff at other stores will only measure one foot. Both should be measured because often one foot isslightly bigger than the other. You should select the larger of the 2 sizes.
  2. You should be able to easily slide one finger at the back of the shoe. This will allow the kids not to outgrow them too fast. At Totidem, their measuring tool factors this in to ensure shoes will fit.
  3. Take into account not only the size, but also the shape of your child’s foot. Thewidth, the height of the arch and the size all come into play when trying onshoes. At Totidem, there is a shoe for every size and shape of shoe, as well asevery taste!
