It is time that someone finally considered the needs of special children. The team of feet doctors  saw the need for modified shoes for  special kids. The modification consists on shoes that have normal heel and wide forefront- wide in the toe box or toes. Therefore, we tried to incorporate  very attractive designs for girls and boys starting from two and a half years to ten years. The designs that are specific to special children are Avery and Danny but the other designs would also fit due to adjustable straps.

In my colleagues and my personal experience, all the children that we  ever treat with  Down Syndrome have flexible flat feet and this wide feet in the toe area. Those shoes have incorporated corrective inserts in each shoe in such a way that no one can remove  them while using the sandals. Those are shoes that received the approval form the American Podiatric Medical association, are FDA registered and received the approval of PDAC ( CMS Center). We have to realize that all the children are our children, precious gift of inestimable value . By using corrective shoes, we prevent compensations in the first toe (bunions), heel pain, knee pain and damage to the lower and upper back. The shoes  also improve  posture in the immature foot structure.
