In this short note on guiding young boys into life as well-adjusted and well-balanced human beings, the rough estimate is that these chaps will be walking on chubby but sturdy little legs by the time they have reached the age of, say, two or three. But in order to ensure that these toddlers, soon to be young boys, are able to continue developing well on their feet in a healthy manner that allows them to develop a sound posture from head to toe, it would not be a bad idea to introduce them to the customary boys leather shoes.
These shoes should only be made by bespoke cobblers who have the knack for working with leather that has been passed on from generation to generation. They have the tendency to only work with genuine leather. And as far as growing young boys are concerned, this is good in the sense that well-stitched shoes with quality leather uppers will be able to withstand a fair amount of rough-edged wear and tear typical of these young chaps.
Of course, there is no need to break the bank when purchasing leather shoes for the little boys because remember, they are still growing at such prodigious rates, and it would therefore be quite useless to have such a fine pair of good leather shoes going to such waste now that it no longer fits the boy. And it is not always a good idea to use these shoes as hand me downs because the previous wearer’s feet would have already made an imprint.
This would not be orthopedically healthy for the next child who has a completely different shape of feet altogether. Finally, fitting them up in leather shoes does make them look rather smart.
