When selecting children's shoes, what should you worry about? About fashion or about which shoes will provide the best protection and support for their growing feet?

Now, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons gives new mothers four pieces of tips when choosing children's new shoes.

Here are tips new mothers should keep in mind:

Children don't need to wear shoes until they begin to walk -- at about 12 months to 15 months of age.

Look for shoes that are wide enough to allow for growth. They should be big enough so that your child can wiggle the toes inside.

Choose shoes with a soft, flexible sole, such as sneakers.

If your child frequently takes the shoes off, they may be uncomfortable. Look for any signs of discomfort such as blisters, redness or calluses on the feet.
