FitKids Shoes: How FitKicks Can Help Your Kids Live a More Active Lifestyle

Big question, FitKicks fans: are your kids FitKids? Some children and young people like nothing better than to put on their coolest sneakers and head out for a bike ride or to play a sport in their free time. But we all know kids whose parents are wondering how they can tempt them away from the computer and get a little exercise every day. Those parents may find that fitkicks awesome new range of FitKids sneakers for children could be an important first step in encouraging kids to become more active.

FitKicks FitKids for Indoor or Outdoor Activities

In the past, parents may not have seen a problem if their children preferred to stay indoors day after day rather than embracing a more active lifestyle. They might even have felt reassured by the thought that they knew where their child was and that he or she was not getting into trouble somewhere. Today, however, most people are aware that physical fitness and an active lifestyle are important for the health of our children ... whether indoors or outdoors.


fitkicks for kids - FitKids - in four colors and sizesFor super fit, active parents who are rarely seen out of their own Fit kicks sneakers, it can be difficult to understand why their kids may not love sport and exercise as much as they do. Even for those of us who mainly love our fitkicks for their stylish looks and amazing comfort, it can be a real challenge to get kids to get into the habit of regular exercise when they would prefer to be play video games or text their friends.

Encourage Kids to Enjoy Fitness with FitKicks

It may be helpful to remember that young children learn so many of their habits by example of those around them. So if they see mom and dad putting on their fit kicks and enjoying a walk or bike ride every day, chances are they are going to want to do the same thing. The new range of FitKids sneakers are just as cool and comfortable as FitKicks for adults, but sized to fit little feet. Available in blue, pink, purple and gray, this new range of cute sneakers from Fitkicks should be enough to encourage little homebodies to get active.

Size Charts

Sizes for Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes are set by the manufacturers.  Here are their published size recommendations:

 

sizes for fitkicks shoes and sidekicks shoes

 

There are no other sizes of authentic Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes, though you may see them listed in other marketplaces with different size equivalents.  Those changes are usually made by the retailer and represent their opinions.

CC Sidewalk prefers to list the manufacturers’ size recommendations as the standard.  But we do offer our own opinions.

Sizes for Fitkicks Shoes

The Fit kicks shoe upper is mostly spandex and quite stretchy.  However, the toe patch is microfiber and does not stretch much.  We recommend one size larger if you are near the top of a size bracket, and definitely the larger size if you are in-between.  The ankle opening is high on the foot.  The shoes are true to size as long as your feet and ankles are pretty much average (aka medium).  If they are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size will not be loose or floppy.

Sizes for Sidekicks Shoes

The Sidekicks shoes are meant to cover a larger size range, and the upper openings are elastic with reasonable stretch.  The Energy/Glitter line offers the most stretchable uppers, followed by Original and Animal.  The Patent line is pretty stiff and does not stretch much at all.  If your feet are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size may be a little bit loose.
