''Healthy Foot'' Certificate granted by The Leather Industry Institute which guarantees that the manufactured footwear is best adjusted to the growing foot of a child.
A child's foot is very delicate and particularly susceptible to the influence of various external factors, including footwear. That is why we should take care of the feet of our children from the first moment of their lives, putting on shoes that ensure the proper development and functioning of the foot. The slightest abnormality in the structure of the foot can often lead to pathological changes in the knee and hip joints and in the spine itself.
The HEALTHY FOOT sign is a distinguishing feature of good footwear that protects the proper development and functioning of a child's foot. Footwear marked with the "Healthy Foot" sign is made correctly in terms of design, technology and materials, and aesthetically made. The "HEALTHY FOOT" sign is awarded to footwear for children up to 15 years of age. The right to use the HEALTHY FOOT sign is granted by the Children's Footwear Specialists Commission operating at the IPS Krakow Branch, confirming its decision with a certificate. Footwear is assessed by an orthopaedist, anthropologist, footwear constructor, technologist and material expert. Footwear manufacturers and importers can apply for the stamp.
It should be remembered that the development and shaping of a child's foot is different at different stages of his / her life - from the time the child begins to walk (10-15 months of age) to the end of the growth of the foot (15-18 years of age). At this time, a child's foot is very delicate and particularly susceptible to the influence of various external factors, including footwear. Therefore, you should take care of the feet of your children from the first moment of their lives, putting on footwear that protects the proper development and functioning of the foot, as well as flexibility of the muscles.
For parents, it informs them that footwear with this sign is the best for their child!
