How to find the perfect fit
If a shoe doesn’t fit properly it will put strain and stress on the growth plate and bones, so it’s important your kid’s shoes are fitted well.
A correctly fitted pair of shoes is crucial in preventing or supporting the recovery of Sever’s disease, but looking out for some important features can play a key role in keeping pain at bay.
Make sure your child is wearing shoes to support their feet growth:
Strong heel counter
Your kids shoes should have a firm heel counter to properly hold their heels. This is a crucial feature to kids shoes that supports Sever’s disease, and also works to hold the ankle, too.
Kids shoes need to be firm in the midsole of the shoe, to provide adequate arch support. This will stop their feet from rolling and causing any additional foot pain.
Good shoes to support kids with Sever’s disease should always include lots of strong cushioning under the heel. This provides shock absorbency and means their heels face less stress and strain.
