Best Moccasin Shoes for Kids – Top 5 Most Durable, Supportive, and Affordable Styles!

best-moccasin-shoes-for-kids

I have put together a list of kids’ moccasins that are practical, comfortable, and fashionable. All of the moccasins that I recommend are made out of leather and provide substantial and supportive outsoles, however, some of them are more supportive than others.

The list of moccasins I have put together is based on my experience of having fitted children’s shoes for the last 10 years. I work for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses in helping children with “complicated” foot shapes as well as foot conditions, but we provide regular shoe fitting as well. Over the years I became familiar with the best moccasin shoes for kids.

Before we move any forward, if your child happens to have wide feet I suggest taking a look at a different article I wrote:

Best Wide Moccasin Shoes for Kids – Extra Deep and Available in Wide Widths (W)

Several parents ask me if there is a specific moccasin shoe brand I can recommend for their kids.

What is the Best Moccasin Shoe Brand?

There are different shoe brands that offer high quality and supportive moccasin shoes for kids, but among those brands, I have found 3 specific ones that are better than others:

  • Merrell
  • Hush Puppies
  • Florsheim

What Makes the Moccasins I Recommend Ideal for Kids?

 100% Leather Made: The moccasins I recommend are all made from high quality and genuine leather that stretches and molds to the shape of your child’s feet.

 Substantial Outsole: The moccasins I recommend provide a substantial and supportive outsole that allows children to run around and play comfortably all day. Take a look at the image below for better visualization purposes:

Before we take a look at a list of the best Moccasin shoes for kids I want to make sure that you know your child’s exact foot size. You won’t be able to order the correct shoe size online if you don’t know what your child’s foot size is to begin with.

Are You 100% Sure of Your Child’s Foot Length and Shape?

Unfortunately, most specialized children’s shoe stores have been closing down (even before the pandemic), and most families don’t know where to take their children to be properly fitted for shoes. 

Parents across the country are increasingly ordering their children’s shoes online—unfortunately, without the benefit of proper shoe fittings—because most specialty children’s shoe stores nationally are closing their doors.

If you are unsure whether your child has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet I created a free resource that will help you determine all this. I will also be able to tell your child’s exact foot length and whether your child has a high instep:

Best Moccasin Shoes for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Some of the moccasin shoes I recommend are more supportive and durable than others, so if you are unsure which style will work best for your child do not hesitate to contact me: fittingchildrensshoes@gmail.com

Number One: Jungle Moc by Merrell

The moccasin below is more versatile than the other ones I recommend as it provides better support and it’s sturdier and more durable. Parents love this shoe because children can wear it for multiple activities either indoors or outdoors.

The black moccasin is fully waterproof while the brown is water resistant.

  • 100% leather.
  • Easy on and off.
  • Durable and supportive rubber outsole.
  • Slip-resistant stability on wet and dry ground helps prevent your child from falling.
  • Removable insoles in case you need to fit an orthotic for extra support.

What Size Should You Order?

To allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order this moccasin half a size larger than their child’s current foot size. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.


Number Two: TS by Hush Puppies

This moccasin is not as durable or supportive as the Merrell Jungle Moc but it works well for a dressier occasion. The outsole of this moccasin is still supportive and it comes with a memory foam footbed so your child can walk around comfortably.

Number Three: Venetian by Florsheim

This is a dressier moccasin meant to be worn for dressier occasions as it won’t hold up if your child wears it as his/her everyday shoes.

Number Five: Kilty by Minnetonka

This moccasin doesn’t provide a lot of support so I suggest wearing it for only a couple of hours and once in a while.

These are the best moccasin shoes for kids that I have fitted before. If you find a specific style that you or your child likes better let me know and I will be able to tell you whether it’s a good march for your child’s feet.

If your child is having trouble wearing moccasin shoes because they always slip off their feet, I suggest trying a tongue pad before exchanging them for a smaller size.

When tongue pads are placed below the tongue of the shoes they push the child’s feet against the back of the shoes. This helps secure the feet and prevents them from moving up and down. You can learn more about tongue pads in a different article I wrote called:
