Crocs Marvel Collection Shoes

Children, Superheroes and Crocs Kids Shoes

Superheroes are here to stay and the recent trends in the film industry endorse it – the Marvel Movies Franchise has been raking in the moolah at the box-office with the Avenger Franchise and superheroes like Captain America, Spider-man, Hulk, Iron-Man, Thor, etc. These characters are now on the lips of every kid across the world and imprinted in every heart and mind due to the power of their aura and their stories. The good news is the Superheroes no longer belong to the screens; they can now be transported with every kid with the Marvel Super Hero collection from Crocs shoes, India.

The association of children with superheroes is universally inextricable and may actually be innate. Recent research reports from Japan suggest babies are born with a sense of justice. The superhero is a symbol of good over evil – of having power and independence to make the world a better place – of strength and individuality which in its own way, silently instills self confidence, belief and positivity.

Kids look up to role models other than their parents and siblings as they grow in years. They relate easily to the superhero identifying with their characteristics of true character, bravado and self-assurance. In this make believe world, justice for the underdog makes them feel like they are actually the character (superhero) destroying the evil and dark forces of the world. It is a feeling inexpressible in words that parents understand and cannot explain. The passion exhibited most of the time is a picture for posterity that is timeless in every parent ‘album.

In recent times, Brand Lab and Cornell University Food found out that besides the positive self boosting values, the health factor is another positive takeaway that parents can benefit from, by encouraging children to eat by associating the superhero with the chosen food dish and influencing the thinking of the child. It is no secret that this is a ploy already in existence in every mother’s food influencing armory across the world.

The world of superheroes is a world of colors, fun and vivacity that when seen through the eyes of a child transcend boundaries of possibilities and imagination that is sometimes difficult to comprehend by an adult. This world has been accurately captured and brought alive by Crocs Shoes, India – the world’s trusted brand in Shoes with their Marvel Super Hero Collection.

The takeaways of some superhero characters holds good for the current challenging global climate and can be a shield against the decline of moral standings and human values. The Superheroes themselves stand for principles – Captain America is patriotism, honor and courage. Spider-man propagates responsibility, humility and self-belief. Thor is contentment, courage, confidence and Iron-Man is ethics, protector of the righteous and a successful businessman etc. – the list goes on and on. Maybe it’s time for Adults to also look at extracting the true values of these superheroes and make this world a better place that children see it as – a happy and peaceful world.

Picking the right shoes for Kids

Published by:

Kids shoes

The perennial ‘shoe buying’ question that is every Parent’ nightmare is “Are the shoes right for my child”. Choosing children’ shoes are normally a trial and error decision for many parents. The comfort, style, convenience and safety are factors that are often thought of, but never understood in the all-important decision making process. Besides having the right shoe for the right occasion

– Formal, casual and festive, is the other significant factor which can be challenging due to choice available.

Science and studies suggest – in order for the child’s feet to develop in a healthy manner, choosing the right shoes is imperative and binding. It is also important to allow for healthy foot development without unnerving their day to day activity and organic growth. The buying process should therefore involve the kid, making it interactive with fun, excitement and an experience that is enchanting. Listed below, we have outlined what you should consider when picking the right shoes.

The Timing

Children outgrow their shoes very quickly so the timing of when to buy is crucial and should actually revolve around practicality. Though it is normally advised to change shoes every month because of the loss of baby fat & foot expansion, in the real world it is all about being realistic.

Firstly the question to be asked is ‘Do I really need to buy? ” i.e. what is the occasion? – Are the shoes worn out? Are the shoes affecting the child? – Or is the sale price at the mall or store tempting? Secondly, is the buying experience conducive to the child? – Do the store or brands understand child psychology and connect with them to make the experience fun and interesting? The world trusted brand in shoes Crocs have done a study of this experience and have modeled their wide variety of brands on this aspect.

Finally, what time should I visit the store? – it is advisable to shop between 5 to 8 pm, as studies show feet are relaxed and normal during this time.

The Selection

The shoe buying process should be fun, akin to a Disney movie experience involving the child where the child becomes the hero of the shoe buying story.

Like fish take to water, shoes sometimes at first try can be comfortable – which is an impromptu judgment the parent or parents have to make. The tendency to feel that in time the shoes will be fine is not advisable, which is often done by some parents. Also, buying big shoes is not prudent and can affect the child’s feet besides the child’s development. The shoe toe and the child’s toe should always have breathing space, i.e. a distance of 1.25 cm should be there at all times. It is best to have the kids’ feet measured, especially the bigger foot (since one is large) before visiting the store. The heel of the shoes should rest easily and there should be no discomfort.

Look for shoes that have material that keeps the feet cool and dry – this material should be ideally made from breathable material to prevent swelling, blisters and foul smell. Donna M. Alfieri, DPM, associate professor at the N.Y. College of Pediatric Medicine recommends Crocs as it offers some arch support and cushion, the holes in the shoe allow air in and keep the feet from sweating, and the antimicrobial properties of Crocs could help prevent infections in kids’ feet.

The Buy

Once the decision and the fit are good, involve the child in the design & color. They are heroes in this story. Show value and interest in their input – you will be surprised that their exposure to social media & television play an integral part in their taste and selection. Kids today have a say in their clothes and shoes as it reflects their personality or is a subset of their superhero character. Crocs Kids shoes has marvel superheroes collection – they also have a range of boys and girls shoes like sneakers, sandals, clogs, flats, fashion sandals, sneakers. Their shoes come in different styles and colors.

Your children matter and no effort should be spared in their holistic development it starts with their journey on foot to the various terrains of life. It is your duty to make it easy, comfortable and fun.
