Tsukihoshi's Children Shoe technology is composed of 4 special features designed for children's growing feet and to provide maximum comfort:
1- Children's feet may tend to over-pronate (land on the arch side) when walking. As a result, children need more stability in their shoes. Tsukihoshi solid half sock board and a solid heel counter help to provide this stability in the heel area.
2- Like many parts of a childﾕs foot, the arch of a child's foot is not yet fully formed. Tsukihoshi ''Molded Cup Insole'' is designed for children's arches while helping to neutralize foot odor.
3- Children's feet can not bend and kick forward well because they are not yet fully developed. Tsukihoshi latest innovation, a "Flex-Joint Outsole" helps to allow children's feet to bend along the line from the joint of the big toe to that of the little toe.
4- Excessive inward tilting towards the arches when walking and running is very common among children. Tsukihoshi ''Comfortable Shoe Last'' provides space in the toe area to help keep the child's toe in an unrestricted position, allowing them to splay on contact with the ground.
Sizing Tip: These Lynx Sneakers run one size big. In other words, size 12 fits as size 13 little kid, and Size 5 fits as Size 6 Youth.
