+Team Snoopy Posted March 27, 2006 Share Posted March 27, 2006 My boys are 6 & 8 and while caching this weekend I started to wonder if we need to get them better shoes for hiking. Now they have their shoes from Walmart/Target ect. But I know there is not a lot of support in them and wondering if wearing these will eventually hurt their ankles, feet, legs and cause growth problems or anything? I don't like to spend tons of money on shoes becuase they outgrow them so fast sometimes, but if better/more supportive shoes will help to curb problems down the road, I'll gladly spend the extra for a good pair couple times a year. We do a lot of off trail, up hills, log stomping stuff. Not smooth trails, so their ankles turn alot and deal with rough terrain. Am I worrying too much or is this something I should look further into. And if so, any suggestions for shoes or boots for them? Quote Link to comment
