Kids wearing small shoes puts them at risk for developing serious foot deformities later in life, Many children outgrow their shoes before the shoes are worn out. Voyager is a better pair of kids' shoes that starts with acknowledging the problem with sizing standards. Provide a more adaptive shoe for kids, and a more transparent product for the parents.
