HOW TO TIE YOUR SHOELACES

 

Did you know that young children are far more likely to know how to use a smartphone than to tie their shoelaces?


An international poll involving 6,017 parents found that two-thirds of Australian kids aged three to five years knew how to navigate a smartphone or iPad, 28% could operate a web browser, 70% could play a basic computer game, 58% could ride a bike, but only 8% could tie their shoelaces!


Do Your Students Know How To Tie Their Laces?


Our FREE shoelace tying lessons will not only help children learn an important life skill but will also assist in developing their fine motor skills and help create independence.

We run free foot health education programs nationwide for primary school students. As a Brisbane based school shoe manufacturer, we work closely with the local Podiatry community and our retail partner at The Athlete’s Foot to ensure we are meeting the needs of the Australian school market.

Part of this commitment is in educating students about a range of foot health issues from learning how to tie shoelaces to basic foot biomechanics.
