Spring is already well on its way, which can only mean one thing … summer is right around the corner! Our goal is to encourage children to step outside and free play year round. There’s definitely something in the air that makes us wanna run outside when temperatures start rising and the sun starts shining. That’s why we’ve compiled a few tips to properly equip your little ones for the right kind of summertime playtime!
Kamik’s Kid Sizing Chart
Before countless hours of outside play, we want to make sure everybody has the perfectly fitting shoe. So, to make things easier, here’s an easy-to-use printable sizing chart that you can use right in the comfort of your own home. Simply print our Size Chart on a regular sheet of paper (8.5” x 11”) and follow the detailed instructions. To ensure you’ve printed the chart correctly, use a credit card and place it in the Accuracy Check section on the sheet. This way, you’ll know you’re measuring the right size for your child’s foot.
This sizing chart is good for all types of kids’ shoes and can come in handy when you switch up the summer styles for rain and winter boots!
Shoes or Sandals? We’ve Got Both!
With so many different options for your kids’ feet, it can sometimes be overwhelming to know exactly what to buy. A great place to start is asking yourself what type of activities will they be getting up to. This can sound obvious but for activities involving kicking or a higher level of physical exertion, like soccer or street hockey, a shoe is the way to go. Shoes offer additional support and close off the foot for extra protection. Sandals are perfect for playing around in the yard, walking around on a summer’s day or playing at the park with friends. At the end of the day, both are great summertime options for your kids’ feet and you can rest assured that their feet would remain well protected!
Closed-Toe or Open-Toe Sandals?
You’ve decided to opt for sandals today, but should they be open-toed or closed-toed? Both options are great, it once again depends on the day ahead. Our closed-toed sandals come with a toe bumper to offer that extra level of protection, which is great if they tend to dart off into open fields or love exploring. If you are planning a full day of summer activities with a lot of walking around, opting for an open-toed style will offer a breathable and stylish option to be seen around town! Good to know, some summer camps do not accept open-toed sandals. So, check with them if you are planning on sending your child to camp this summer!
