We are here to teach you how best to care for your little one's feet!

See here why children’s feet are so important:

Do You Have Kids

or Know Someone Who Does?

Your Foot Health Began with your first steps…it begins with your child’s first steps, too!

As you may know, we have always focused on and cared about “kids” from 2 to 92 – (just having a little fun with you!) Seriously, we’ve helped children with needs such as growing pains, special developmental issues, flat feet, and support for athletic activities. Some recent clients play volleyball, baseball, cross country, and golf, so balance, coordination, pain, posture, and strength were all considerations for their care.

Our Feet First division of foot care for Kids is an expanded pediatric practice supporting two extra important areas for kids through their tween years: Custom Orthotic Support for better foot development and properly fitting footwear.

Little Steps orthotics for those who need help in foot development. These ‘EZ’ to use and wear OTC arch supports for kids offer the ability to keep the feet in proper alignment and support the feet in ways no shoe alone can do.  Couple that with a properly fitting pair of our high-quality natural fabric shoe selections, and you have a great way to be assured your child is getting the overall support they need to develop their little feet into feet that can walk strong and long. We will teach you about today’s footwear and how to fit your child properly for his or her shoes. We have a fabulous collection of European-made shoes that are well crafted, have correct support, and are stylish. Our Renbut line offers multiple styles and sizes to maximize children’s healthy feet development. We offer boots, shoes, and sandals for girls and boys. See our Rebut shoes information below as well. 

Please take note of a couple of other important things we are sharing with you – prevention begets correction, and truthfully, most foot types are inherited. So, if the parent has a problem, the child should be checked, especially early on, to look for current issues and/or predispositions toward developing problems as they grow.

In closing, based on your experiences with us or if you like what you have read here, we hope you’ll bring your children or grandchildren or recommend us to someone you know who has children because you’ll be helping them have great feet for life. What better thing can you give to your kids besides great feet? With so many companies going out of the business of pediatric foot care, let us be the ones to help by teaching you and your children the importance of good foot care, which is vital to healthy and happy feet for the rest of one’s life. Take control of your child’s foot health today and book an in-person or video consultation now. Don’t wait any longer to get the answers and guidance you need to help you give your child the gift of healthy and happy feet.

Little Steps Over the
Counter Arch Supports!

Little Steps is our affordable alternative to custom orthotics for children. It is normal for a child’s foot to appear flat up until about the age of 2 due to a thick layer of baby fat that fills the arch area. The arch will become more obvious around the age of 3 when this fat pad disappears. Before this time, we watch for issues like:

Inward bowing of the ankles and Achilles tendon

A child who walks on their toes instead of putting their heels on the floor

A child who prefers to be carried.

These can all be signs that something is not right with the child’s feet.
In addition, checking the child’s feet is important if at any time you notice:

Your child cannot keep up with his peers

Withdraws from activities they usually enjoy

Does not want you to mess with his/her feet

Often trips and falls

Complains of pain

It is never normal for a child

to have feet and/or leg pain.

Our Little Steps OTC arch supports program is a great way to support your child and improve posture, control heel pain, improve muscle tone and strength, and reduce and/or eliminate growing pains most common in the tween years. Little Steps are the best alternative to prescription-based correction due to the balanced ergonomics for the medial, lateral, and transmetatarsal arches this device offers, helping the feet to stay in proper alignment while they develop and grow. These arch supports can be customized when necessary to help deal with issues that may develop during the growing years, and depending on the needs, they may possibly be passed down from child to child. What a money saver!

Renbut Are Healthier Shoes For Kids With Growing Feet!

Renbut shoes help prevent overpronation and flat feet and support the healthy development of your child’s feet:

Strong Ankle Support

These shoes offer a strong counter at the ankle level to prevent excessive inward and downward ankle movement, called overpronation. A quality leather or textile upper provides that kind of support. Also, good-quality natural fabrics like our canvas and leather are soft, breathable, and maintain a good fit over time, unlike other materials that loosen up quickly and hold moisture.

Strong Heel Counter

The shoe’s heel counter helps lock the foot into the shoe. It provides stability while walking and running by preventing excess rotation of the tibia in the lower leg, which helps prevent tibial torsion, a common problem in the development years. It also helps with overpronation and flat feet by developing a better arch.

Arch Support

These shoes provide stability for the arches and limit hyper-flexibility movements of the ankles in walking and running, which are common problems in children.

Foam-Padded Insoles

The firm rubber soles of these shoes provide cushion by absorbing the shock of the foot as it lands on hard surfaces. This helps reduce foot muscle fatigue and prevent foot and leg pain.

Accommodates OTC and Custom Orthotics

Renbut shoes will accommodate over-the-counter and/or custom orthotics. Most children can benefit from using an arch support device to help develop the arch and keep the bones of the feet in alignment as the foot develops until the growth plates are set. For girls, this is about 1 year after menses begins. For boys, it can be all the way to age 16- 20.
