Flexibility: key to accompanying the natural movement of the foot during active walking!

When practising active walking, the foot unrolls completely from the point of contact with the heel to the propulsion forwards by the toes, during which it is strongly flexed.

This is why our soles are equipped with flexion notches which make Newfeel soles so supple!

The ideal children's shoe for occasional active walking in all weathers!

Supportive and lightweight, both guaranteed by the children's shoe Soft 140

The dense EVA foam outsole absorbs shocks.
The lightweight properties of the materials used almost make the user feel like they are barefoot!

Velcro and elasticated laces, the dream combination for putting on your shoes easily.

Elasticated laces naturally adapt to all shapes of feet.

The velcro enables perfect adjustment for fit.

From our idea to your feet: how are fitness walking shoes designed?

Product managers, engineers and designers work every day to develop products which are perfectly in step with specific trends in active walking. Discover our behind the scenes video showing the design phase of our Soft 140 JR shoes.

Excellent VFM

My 11 year old loves these having had a previous pair when younger. They are comfortable and hard wearing plus my son's favourite colour is orange. These are very good value, especially as my son outgrows them before he can wear them out.

Wore out in less than 2 months

We have generally been very happy with Decathlon shoes, some of which still look new after one year. However, this pair has almost worn through at the toe after less than 2 months of occasional use.

    Cheap trainers for school PE bags

    Bought two pairs for my boys to do PE in rather than plimsols as they are outside, on the field etc. They wouldn't last long if they were being worn all day every day but while they are growing they will probably last the year out in their PE bags, and for the price this is perfectly adequate.

Storage Tips
The Newfeel team recommends storing your shoes/trainers in a dry, dark and well-ventilated place.


Can I wear fitness walking shoes for school sports?
Our shoes/trainers designed for fitness walking meet the requirements of school sports:non-marking soles for use in sports halls, flexible and lightweight with grip and support.
Can I use orthopaedic insoles in my children's fitness walking shoes?
When using orthopaedic insoles, take one size up or remove the insoles from your Newfeel children's walking shoes - they have removable insoles!
The heel support of Newfeel's shoes for children
In order to provide the appropriate foot support, all of Newfeel's children shoes are equipped with a specially designed quality stiffener at the back.
Should you choose one size above the child's shoe size so that they can wear their shoes for longer?
No!If the shoe is too big, the foot does not receive the appropriate amount of support, especially at the heel. The foot can thus go off to the sides and the shoe is no longer "one" with the foot. The child would therefore risk changing their natural gait, causing it to be compensated for by the knees, hips and back. Nevertheless, the child's foot should not be held too tightly in the shoe. There should be enough space (6mm) between the end of the foot and the end of the shoe.
How to check that the chosen size for my child's shoes is the right one?
The child should first place their foot right to the front of the shoe. You should then press the palm of your hand down on the front of the child's foot to ensure the toes are not curled up. Try and fit your finger down the back of the shoe, behind the heel (right to the bottom) to see if there is enough space (6 mm). If it is a thin finger, the tip of your finger will be about 10mm thick. If you can squeeze it in but it is tight then that's a perfect fit! For more information:
Should I choose shoes with a marked arch?
No!90% of children are born with healthy feet. They don't have flat feet, they are fleshy! Feet develop muscle and the arch as children grow. Adding an arch is like adding a prosthesis! When removed (bare feet or shoe without arch), the body tries to compensate the imbalance which can cause back pain. For more information:
I have a little shoe-destroyer at home - how can I choose the most durable pair?
Children tend to use the front of their shoes more quickly! Pay particular attention to the sole. A naturally durable material like rubber will last longer. A sole that "envelops" the foot or even a rising sole will also serve as a "bumper". For the upper, leather is a guarantee of durability and a specially adapted reinforcement will limit premature wear. For more information see:
