Q.

Shoes

My son is 15 months old. I normally buy Woolies / Akermans takkies and sandels for him. Would you say that this is fine or should I be looking at Nike / Puma / Reebok as a adult I know that they are better for my feet.

When buying shoes for children of any age be sure that the soles inside the shoe have built in arch supports and are not simply flat.
