Are you struggling to find a pair of dress shoes that is capable of accommodating the shape of your toddler’s high instep? Do you feel like you try a whole bunch of different dress shoes, and always end up empty handed?

I always tell parents to pay extra attention to the heighth of the top part of their toddler’s feet, which is called the instep.

Here is where the instep of the foot is located:

When toddlers have high insteps, there is a lot of extra volume that needs to be fitted inside the shoes:

I have been contacted by several parents of toddlers with high insteps who find themselves checking out a lot of different children’s stores and ordering multiple shoes online before finding one that fits, seems comfortable, and is good quality.

There is a small selection of dress shoes that are capable of accommodating the foot of a toddler with a high instep, and I know exactly which ones they are from having fitted them before.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for the last 10 years, and that experience help me get familiar with the best shoe brands and the best shoe styles for toddlers with high insteps.

I noticed how some parents don’t put a lot of thought about the type of dress shoes that they provide for their toddlers, as they wear them once in a while and for short periods of time. However, you might want to rethink this. It takes only a couple of wears in the wrong shoe size or the wrong shoe style to develop foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

Before I provide you with a selection of the best dress shoes for toddlers with high insteps, let me show you how to make sure that your toddler has a high instep.

How to Tell if Your Toddler Has a High Instep? – Check this 3 Signs!

I already showed you how a foot with a high instep looks like. However, if you are unsure if your toddler has a high instep there are certain signs that you can look for:

  • Do you always have a hard time putting your toddler’ shoes on? This is the first sign that your toddler might have a high instep.
  • Do you notice imprints on the top of your toddler’s feet? This is the second sign that your toddler might have a high instep.

  • Do you have a hard time pulling the Velcro strap to match the end of the Velcro?

Those are the 3 most common signs that your toddler might have a high instep.

So, if your toddler indeed has a high instep, keep on reading because I will show you which dress shoes are going to be capable of fitting the shape of his/her feet.

What Makes the Dress Shoes I Recommend so Effective for High Insteps?

Let me show you what makes the dress shoes that I recommend so effective in fitting the shape of a toddler with a high instep. Do you notice how the shoe on the right is a lot deeper than the shoe on the left? You can notice this difference in the height of the shoe across the instep and also across the toe area.

Shoes that provide extra depth allow the toddler’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes, preventing the top part of the foot (instep) from rubbing against the top part of the shoes.

Remember that shoes don’t come labeled as “extra deep”, so the only way to tell which shoes are deeper than others is from having fitted them before. Thats where I come into play, as I know exactly which shoes are deeper than others.

Now let’s compare two different Mary Jane shoe styles for toddler girls. Do you notice how the Mary Jane on the right is a lot deeper than the Mary Jane on the left?

Now it’s time to make sure that you know your toddler’s exact foot size. If you don’t know your toddler’s exact foot size, you won’t know what shoe size to order.

Let’s start by checking if you don’t have a good fitting children’s shoe store in your area. I created a map that describes the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state:

If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to find a store in your area, then proceed to taking a look at a different article I wrote where I describe the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your toddler’s exact foot size from home:

Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best dress shoes for toddlers with high insteps. I know that most parents want to provide their toddlers with some extra growing space inside their shoes, specially when it comes to dress shoes as they might not wear them that often. However, there is a certain amount of growing room that you can leave inside the shoes without compromising your toddler’s stability. I will expand on this shortly.

Please make sure that your toddler is wearing the correct pair of everyday sneakers in the correct size. Wearing shoes in the wrong size won’t deform your toddler’s feet, but if the shoes don’t provide the correct amount of support, it can advance any abnormalities that your toddler’s feet may already have, such as flat feet.
