Best shoes for kids who wear orthotics!
In this blog post I am going to cover the best shoes if your child has orthotics as well as 5 reasons why.
As a mom of two special needs kids, who are unable to walk and need to wear orthotics for support, I can say hands down that the shoe brand called “Billy” is by far the absolute best shoes for a child who wears orthotics.
It can be extremely challenging to try and put on a regular pair of shoes when your child wears orthotics.
We have tried several different types of shoes over the years and without a shadow of a doubt the easiest shoes to put on over my child's orthotics have been the “Billy” shoes.
I am not an affiliate of Billy shoes and am promoting them simply because they have been such a huge time saver and blessing for our family and I am hoping to help you and your family have a much easier time putting on your child's shoes over their orthotics.
It would sometimes take me 5-10 minutes to struggle to put my special needs children's shoes over their orthotics because it was such a tight fit.
Very exhausting and time consuming!
We even bought shoes that were a size or two larger, hoping it would help make it easier to put their shoes on over the orthotics.
Unfortunately…..it didn’t work.
The problem is…..if the shoes are too big, then it is more difficult for your child to take steps.
On the contrary…..if the shoes are too small or tight, then once again, it can be too difficult for your special needs child to take steps while wearing them.
Thank the Lord that my son’s physical therapist told me about the shoe company called “Billy”.
She told me that they are excellent shoes for kids who wear orthotics and said it can be a huge time saver to put the shoes on over the orthotics because the shoes simply zip around the foot and toes area…..making it super easy and fast to put the shoes on. 😊👍
On average....it only takes me about 1-2 minutes to put my sons Billy shoes on over the top of his orthotics.
One of the qualities that I love about Billy’s shoes is that not only is it super easy and convenient to put the shoes over your child's orthotics, but the shoes are very durable!
We have had our Billy shoes for years and they are still in great condition.
Here is a photo of my son Isaiah wearing his Billy shoes over his orthotics.
You can find the Billy shoes at any Nordstrom or on Amazon.
You could also order them directly from Billy's website at www.Billyfootwear.com
They come in sizes ranging from children's to adults, so you can pretty much find any size shoe that you need.
In conclusion, in my opinion…...the best shoes for children who wear orthotics is a company called “Billy”.
The 5 reasons why I love Billy shoes for my special needs kids are:
1.) They are super easy to put on over your child's orthotics
2.) They are very durable and made of great quality.
3.) They are affordable.
4.) They can be easily ordered on Amazon, Nordstrom or directly from the companies website at www.Billyfootwear.com
5.) They are a huge time saver to put on!
