Luke … I’m your … shoe!
Star Wars dads check this out … you can now get shoes for your kids that resemble some of the key characters in Star Wars. Amazing what you can do with shoes these days! The shoes are called “stride rite” and come as 4 different characters (Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Captain Rex and Boba Fett) – look them up online if this is your kind of thing.
3 Things you probably didn’t know about shoes and feet:
* Up until age 5, the foot is still forming and is mostly cartilage
* The arch begins forming at age 2 and it is normal for a child to develop a fairly complete arch by age 6
* Children’s feet remain vulnerable to ill-fitting shoes right through their school days, up to the age of 18 years
And in case you have not seen the all time favourite Darth Vader clip – it’s Eddie Izzard and Darth Vader in the Death Star Cantine!
