Please keep in mind that I only write reviews of shoe styles that I have fitted before, otherwise I wouldn’t know how well-made they are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.
I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years, working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in different widths, since that’s the only way we can guarantee to FITevery single child.
I am familiar with which are the best shoe brands and the best shoe styles among those brands from actually having fitted and tested the shoes in different children’s feet
This particular time, I will review the best shoe style for children with narrow feet. Parents tend to complain all the time about finding shoes for their children with wide and extra wide feet, but these parents don’t understand that it is much harder to find shoes for children with narrow feet.
If you provide your children with narrow feet with a pair of shoes that are too wide, their feet will end up moving too much inside the shoes and that constant rubbing and friction between the feet and the shoes will lead to foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns.
Do you feel like you always have a hard time finding a pair of narrow shoes for your child? Do you feel like you try a whole bunch of different styles but you always end up empty handed?
Finding a pair of narrow shoes for children can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience if you don’t know what shoe styles to look for.
