The Perfect Slipper for Your Toddler

The Perfect Slipper for Your Toddler

A child’s first steps towards a bright future may be the most important steps they will ever take. A good education is priceless and will ensure a child’s future. Ensure your child takes this step with comfortable Indoor slippers – Foamtreads!

If you haven’t checked out what the hype around FoamTreads is, then now is the time. FoamTreads have a special line, which is called foameds; we feature rich medical designed slippers that will bring comfort to not only children but also adults and even patients with health concerns and will impact their feet or mobility. We all know that it can be challenging for toddlers to put their shoes on the right foot, therefore it is crucial to assist your child to put their shoes on correctly. This can be done by marking a big dot on the inside left of their right shoe and right of their left shoe. It will be easy for them to match the dots.

Shoes, mainly those with hard and inflexible soles can make your child’s walking difficult. Toddlers don’t need shoes until they have walked for a couple of months. Have your toddler shoes professionally fitted; this should involve measuring each foot for width and length. Children’s feet grow very fast and the size might need to be updated every few months. If shoes are too tight, they can obstruct your child’s walking and cause problems such as bunions and ingrown toenails.

Good shoes for your toddlers should include features such as;

  • Rounded toe
  • Heel supporter
  • A firm, comfortable fit in both width and length
  • A flat and flexible sole

Don’t we all love shopping? It even sounds better when we say “shoe shopping” but it can become a different story when one needs to buy footwear for a toddler. In most cases, you will be pressed to get your child to try on a new pair without wiggling out of your lap or having to kick and throw tantrums. Even though you can get them on without a fuss, taking them off can be tricky.

It is important to monitor the fit. If your child has been happily wearing their shoes for months and then suddenly they start taking off the shoes and rubbing their feet, this is a sign that they need to get a new pair. Opt for the best fit for your child, opt for Foamtreads.

Foot Care For Summer – How To Get Your Feet Sandal Ready

Now that it is nearly summertime it is time to get your feet ready for wearing sandals if you have not already. Before you expose your toes in public you will want to get them ready for show and there is a number of things that you need to do.

The first thing that you need to do is to get your feet in shape and this means removing any traces of old nail polishes. Once all of the old polish has been removed them you need to cut your nails and then file them back and this needs to be done in one direction so that you do not end up with jagged edges.  Use a buffer to ensure that all of the edges are smooth.

Check your feet for dry skin as you will want to get rid of any dry skin that you have. Use a foot file that is designed for dry skin. Whittle down the rough patches and calluses on the balls and heels of the feet. After filing off the dry skin use a special cream that is designed for keeping the feet soft and smooth, this is best used on the feet overnight.

The next job is to exfoliate using a grainy scrub and soak your feet in warm water. Whilst you are at it, you could also do your legs. Gently push the cuticles on your nails back and clean under the nail using an orange stick.

When it comes to applying polish to your newly cleaned nails start by using a base coat of your chosen nail polish. Applying a base coat will help the colour to remain for longer and it will also help to protect the nails. Once the base coat has dried then apply two thin coats of your preferred colour and then allow them twenty minutes to dry. It is best to refresh the nail polish every couple of day by applying a new layer.

When you are wearing sandals in the summer months then make a point of applying some sunscreen to the top of the feet to avoid getting sunburn. The top part of the foot is an area that will be exposed to the sun which is not used to such exposure, therefore, it will be more prone to burning. By following these few simple steps then you will have lovely feet to show off whilst wearing sandals during the summer.

The Benefits of Memory Foam Shoes

The Benefits of Memory Foam Shoes

We all need to take better care of our feet. It is our feet which take us from one place to the next after all; ask any teacher or waitress who spends all day on their feet - sore feet can really ruin your day. There is also nothing worse than waking up in the morning with sore or swollen feet. This is why Foamtreads, a leader in foam footwear technology, use memory foam in our slippers.

But what exactly is memory foam and how does it benefit us? To us at Foamtreads, memory foam means that we remember when we were the first and only brand using memory foam in our slippers! Memory foam was originally developed in the United States of America for the space program in the 1960s, but the design was never used by NASA. The creation didn’t go to waste, though, as it soon developed a following in the medical community. Today it is used in everything from mattresses to slippers. The chemicals added to the polyurethane change the density of the foam which makes it very unique.

When the foam is cold, it becomes very rigid. However, once it warms up it turns into a more pliable material. This means that memory foam can instantly change shape once warm. This trait interested medical professionals, who quickly realized that this could help a lot of people. For example, adding a memory foam topper to a mattress for a patient who is bedridden dramatically lowers the amount of pressure sores which they will suffer.

In the same way that memory foam can help relieve discomfort for bedridden patients, it can help people who suffer from foot pain. A lot of house slippers might offer warmth, but very few offer any support. Memory foam provides both comfort and support as it immediately conforms to the shape of your foot.

At Foamtreads, we have even taken it one step further. We know that you need support outside of the house as well. This is why we have a range of outdoor slippers as well. With more than five decades experience in the industry, you are in superb hands (or feet).

Even though Foamtreads are for absolutely everyone, we have a specialty line called Foameds. These were purpose designed to help people with health concerns, which affect their feet and their ability to move. With Foameds, you can move comfortably in good looking shoes!
