Your Child’s Shoes Do Matter

Maintaining and caring for a child’s feet will benefit their health, mobility and wellbeing throughout their entire lives. It is important to remember that children are not small adults. They are physically and emotionally different and, most importantly, they grow.

The human foot is a highly complex structure, composed of 26 bones working together to allow the foot to adapt to uneven walking surfaces, and acting as a shock absorber with each step. These bones are usually fully hardened by the age of 18.

During a child’s development, the foot can be at risk from injury and deformity due to ill-fitting footwear and great care should be taken with shoe types and shoe fitting.  It should be remembered that the foot can not be considered in isolation to the rest of the leg or body. Any postural foot abnormality could have an effect further up the body, altering posture and walking style. This is similar to the way that poor foundations can cause general structural problems and instability to a house.

Fleet Feet Sports provides footwear fittings for youth sizes 1-6.   Through their biomechanics and gait analysis they will ensure your child is wearing footwear that is proper for their biomechanical needs.

Comments from Parents

Take a look at these letters that Crazy Running has received!

Robyn's zeal for running is contagious and her enthusiasm rubbed off on my son. He loves to run now because she taught him how to build a base without getting injured or suffering burnout. He became stronger and quickly showed more confidence in other sports as a result of her program. Crazy running

with Robyn served as a fun way to get in shape while being with friends.  There is now a community of kids in Winston-Salem that owe their physical fitness to her.    


"Crazy Running is a creative and social way for kids to get exercise while spending time with their friends.  My 10-year old son wasn't crazy about running until he experienced the fun and challenging workouts with the energetic coaches.  Completing a 5K at the end was good for both his health and self-esteem.  And beating his dad was a bonus!"  


Crazy Running is a fun way to spend time with friends and learn how to be physically fit.  With the expert wisdom of Robyn Holland and her experience and training as a life-long runner, my boys are now motivated to incorporate stretching and running into their weekly routines.  As parents, it's so awesome to get ready to go for a 3 mile run and ask if anyone else wants to go along, and your kids say, "I do!".

Good luck,


Participating in Crazy Running was a fantastic experience for our 10 year old son, William! He enjoyed the sessions and enjoyed working with Robyn Holland. Robyn is passionate and enthusiastic about running and fitness and her enthusiasm flows to the children in Crazy Running. William was able to increase his flexibility and his speed with Crazy Running. He was also able to build up his endurance. As a result, his confidence in his ability to run greatly increased. Great Experience!!!
