School term for the year 2018 is finally lowering it’s curtain and coming to an end. School children nationwide in Malaysia are all excited with their school breaks and holiday fun, but for us parents, it’s a little bit of a nightmare. School holidays are merely intermission for us before the school reopens and there are alot of things for us to do, especially helping to prepare for our kids’ school necessities before the new term commences.
I’m not sure how it’s like for other parents but as a working mum who is constantly busy, time is an essence and I need to plan way ahead to avoid last minute disasters of not having everything prepared. I usually buy school uniforms and whatnot for my son as soon as the school holiday starts, and here’s sharing with you a great place for you to buy shoes for your children; Sunfeet International Rehab Centre.
Located in Petaling Jaya, Sunfeet International Rehab Centre has come a really long way in the orthotics and prosthetic industry. At Sunfeet, it’s not just about selling health shoes but also help you to analyze your feet so that you will be able to pick the right footwear for you.
As of writing, they are having the Back to School promo and I thought it’s high time that I’d drop by to check out what they have to offer.
Here’s my son, checking out the school shoes on their rack.

Free feet scanning and consultation is given here and therefore, we decided to go on ahead with the scanning before picking out the shoes for the boy.
During the consultation session with the experts at Sunfeet International Rehab Centre, we’re informed of the common problems with our feet.
Here’s the expert at Sunfeet International Rehab Centre scanning my son’s feet to help him determine the type of shoes I should be buying for him to ensure maximum comfort all day long.
Getting consultation. I didn’t really pay much attention then as I was too excited with all the shoes displayed over there and I was a bit distracted but here’s sharing with you some of the common problems that we usually faced that are related to our feet
1. Flat feet (our feet are flat and has no proper arch for support)
2. Nunion (excess bulding at the side of your big toe)
3. Callous (thick dead skin cells under the base of your feet)
4. High arch
5. Intoe-ing (pigeon legs- walking with both legs pointing inwards)
6. Toe walking (tip toe when you walk)
7. Bowlegs (bending outward of the legs from the knees down)
We were informed that my son’s feet are apparently a little bit on the flat side and extra support is needed.
And so here’s the school shoes that were suggested to us.
Dr Edmund Lee, the owner and the in-house doctor at Sunfeet International Rehab Centre offered tips on choosing the right footwear during our visit and here’s sharing his tips with all of you here
1. Buy shoes in the evening because our feet expands the most at that time
2. Suitable shoes are shoes that can be inserted two fingers behind the shoes and the front of the shoe. This is to allow for a space for our feet growth.
3. Try both side of the shoes and walk with them to make sure they are comfortable.

Feet are the basis for healthy body formation. If you choose the wrong footwear that does not support your feet, it will affect your well being and you’ll have tendency for knee pain, unhealthy spine, waist and many more. Therefore, picking a pair of shoes that provides proper support is very important, especially for our children as to encourage their healthy growth.
I always want the best for my son. I’m sure all of you want the best for your children too, especially during their growing up years. And if you are looking for school shoes, or any casual shoes for both yourselves and your children to wear that’s not only fashionable but also promotes overall comfort and well being, you might want to head over to Sunfeet International Rehabilitation Centre and check things out.
