How to maintain your child's Newfeel shoes ?

Have you just bought your child a pair of Newfeel shoes? They are designed to be worn both for sports activities or as day shoes. Here are 6 tips for keeping your shoes as good as new for as long as possible… or giving them a new shine!

1 - After your purchase, waterproof your child's shoes

All of our children's shoes are water-repellent, so that water slides off the shoe without penetrating the interior, provided that the rain does not last too long. It is therefore important to waterproof your child's Newfeel shoes, with a waterproofing spray. This will also have the effect of protecting the shoes from dirt and grime! This process can be repeated each month.

2 – Let the insole breathe each evening

It is possible to remove the insole from all of our shoes. The insole soaks up perspiration from your child's feet. It's designed to absorb the moisture that builds up over the course of the day. If you take it out, it will be able to dry faster. You will therefore prevent unpleasant odours whilst retaining the absorption properties of the insole, also known as "hygienic insole".

3 – Regularly clean the outsole with a soft cloth

The outsole of our children's shoes can be cleaned easily with a damp sponge, without needing to rub them too hard! Remember to clean them regularly so that dirt doesn't build up and become encrusted in the material.

4 - Clean the shoe upper with water only

The "upper" of our children's shoes, that is, the part above the outsole, is coated with a water-repellent substance. You can therefore clean this part of the shoe as often as necessary using a soft, damp cloth, as for the outsole.

5 - Close the Velcro fastenings even when your child is not wearing their shoes

The Velcro fastenings should always be closed, whether the shoes are being worn or not, so that they retain optimum adherence. If dust and bits of grass manage to get stuck in them, they'll become less effective. Show your child how to do this, it is also very important in ensuring that their feet are supported.

  • To clean the Velcro fastenings: fold the soft part in half and rub both halves together. Any dust that has built up will form a ball, so all you need to do is pull it off by hand or using a pair of tweezers. The other part, which grips the softer part, can be cleaned using a small brush.

6 - We do not recommend washing our shoes in a washing machine

There is a risk of damaging the glues and foams that make up the shoe. 


"Are we nearly there yet?" is a question that we've all asked and that all parents inevitably hear at some point in their lives. Make walking more than just a way of getting from A to B with these seven tips. Make it a fun way of looking after your and your child's health!


Walking is a great way of maintaining health in adults… but also great for children! Encouraging children to walk from the earliest age promotes healthy growth whilst also introducing them to the pleasure of regular physical exercise.


If you are already a fan of active walking, you will already know what this activity can offer in terms of health and well-being. The benefits of walking can be felt at any age and especially by children, who are particularly at risk of excess weight due to a sedentary lifestyle.
