I noticed for a while now that my daughter's feet turns inward (in-toeing or pigeon toed) when she walks. Pike kumbaga. When she learned to run, I was afraid that she would trip on her own feet because it was bent almost 45 degrees inwards.
Last week we were at Via's pedia for another health complaint. I mentioned that I was concerned with her feet and that maybe she needs corrective shoes. Her pedia said it looked like Via was flatfooted but that it's better to consult with an orthopedic doctor. We did. After looking at the x-ray, the ortho doctor said there was nothing wrong anatomically. That she would grow out of it.
I did not intend to buy shoes myself but I just could not pass it up. I've never felt so comfortable. It fit like a glove. I also had my feet examined. Kids feet may be examined at 6 years old. Dr. Kong shoes are advisable for kids so their feet are healthy and well-formed.
The bones in my feet were normal although turned outwards a little but I was not flatfooted. In any case, I'm sold on Dr. Kong shoes. I will buy Via's school shoes here and my office shoes since I saw a few pumps on display.
We visited Dr. Kong shoes branch in Robinson's Galleria, 3rd Level (Jumpstreet).
