BARTEK shoes with reflective elements ensure that their users are visible on the road, thus increasing your safety. Reflective strips placed on the shoe makes the person is visible in the spotlight from up to 150-250 meters. Such a "shining" point draws the driver's attention and enhances its vigilance.  

 

 

 

 

 

Summer is a period that favours activeness. Let us take advantage of this time, and encourage our children to play outdoors. Not much is needed, just comfortable shoes and then exercise will be a genuine and healthy pleasure.

 

In the era of television and the Internet it is no easy task to encourage a child to take a walk or run outdoors. Experts agree that a lack of movement has disastrous consequences on a developing organism. Heart diseases and all kinds of allergies, spine ache and even psychological problems constitute only some of the consequences from a lack of physical activity. Meanwhile, as tests perfomed in Denmark and United Kingdomdemonstrate, regular and moderate physical activity may prolong human life by three to five years.

 

Recommendations regarding movement

 

In accordance with the latest knowledge the best health results are achieved through physical activities practiced most or all days of the week. According to the American Heart Association the recommended daily dose of moderate or intense physical activity for children and teenagers is 60 minutes.

 

Just try

 

Not much is neededb to move. Some willingness, baggy clothing and comfortable shoes – a must –which allow the feet to grow correctly and let the child feel comfortable, will do. Such shoes will encourage a youngster to exercise, thereby preventing obesity and the problems that ensue.

 

 

 

 

 

One size fits today. As tempting as it might be, don’t buy bigger shoes for the months ahead. Shoes that are too big are hard to walk in and can cause falling and tripping (i.e. drunken sailors on the loose). According to Ross Taubman, DPM, a podiatrist in Clarksville, Maryland, “It’s really important to find shoes that fit properly when she’s learning to walk  otherwise, she could stumble and take longer to develop the skill.”

Toddler feet can also vary up to half a size, so opt for the larger foot’s size. Kids’ feet grow like weeds, so measure again in a few months. One of my favorite shoe companies, also lists toddler shoe sizes by inches. Handy to know, because age and size can be a crapshoot.
