Future Steps for Kids is a children’s footwear store designed by podiatrists. We offer great shoes and our staff are trained to correctly measure your children’s feet – ensuring a great fit everytime in shoes that are good for their feet.
Future Steps for Kids is owned and operated by Freeman, Williams, Bertao Podiatry & Biomechanics. As Podiatrist we have been very concerned about the trend towards children’s footwear being purchased online and therefore not fitted. Our team of podiatrists work closely with the other local allied health professionals, including some paediatric physiotherapists. We all share these same concerns. We have watched local shoe shops close and have been frustrated in trying to access good quality shoes that have been properly fitted for our patients (and our own children!).
Often we make recommendations of footwear as part of a treatment plan for children with pain or other walking issues and we feel like we are sending parents on a wild goose chase to find these shoes, let alone get them fitted. We work closely with the local Athletes Foot stores who are excellent at fitting school shoes and joggers but unfortunately the options for pre-schoolers shoes are limited.
