As I have been getting into the barefoot shoe world I keep wondering how did the idea of kids needing shoes with support (be it arch support, heel support or whatever else) come about? Most articles where I read about toddler/kids shoes specialists say that barefoot is the best and then so many of them go on to say that when buying shoes for your child you need to make sure it has enough of "support". How did that idea get started? I have been trying to read up about it, but have not been able to find anything. Anyone?
