Dress Shoes For Kids

by Domenic Muto on 04/29/19

Do your children need dress shoes?

There are many occasions in the spring that require children to wear dress shoes.  Celebrations such as first communion, graduations, and weddings require a dressier shoe than the usual sneaker or croc.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offer these tips on buying dress shoes for toddlers and kids:

•    Measure the child’s feet.
•    Try on the shoes with the socks/tights that the child will be wearing. 
•    Find a shoe that your child likes in his/her size.
•    Make sure the shoe fits properly.
•    Do the flex test.  Make sure the shoe bends easily so it isn’t uncomfortable for the child.
•    Stay away from slippery soles.  You don’t want your child to slip and fall.
