Designed to support and form kids feet and ankles. Bow legs best with reinforced heel for support and weak ankles. Over time joins, feet and posture will re-align and improvement will be visible. Shaping kids feet and posture takes time, same way as deformation. Proper sandals and good shoes form kids feet and cheap shoes with zero support deform and destroy kids feet. Thus in Europe kids wear only such quality shoes at all times. They form and support their feet and posture and re-shape their feet. Those little sandals have it all - ankle support with a packet that keeps heel protected and aligned. Good arch support and none sweat soles. They align kids feet over time and you will notice immediate difference in child's walking. Re-alignment of kids feet takes time, you will see a difference in about a year and clear improvement in about 3 years. Important thing is do not rotate between cheap shoes that are not orthopedic.Make sure child wears good shoes 24/7. Reason for that is whatever good shoe aligns the foot the cheap one destroys the line up. That is what we do in Europe and ever local doctor will confirm that. Europe has no business of orthodics like USA does and our medicine is not for profit.
Thus good shoes are made for children to prevent and correct any orthopedic problems.

Great, supportive and best for wide feet. I love the color, fit and all. Fantastic sandal for a boy. Thanks for measuring the soles for me...they fit out of the box.
