Best Narrow Slip-On Shoes for Kids – Narrow Toe-Boxes and Narrow Heel Counters!

Do you have a child with narrow feet and you always have a hard time finding slip-on shoes that fit? Does every single slip-on shoe style that you try slips right off your child’s feet?

Finding a pair of slip-on shoes for a child with narrow feet can be a really frustrating and time-consuming experience. I have been contacted by several families who have tried several different pair of slip-on shoes and can’t seem to find a single style that fits.

The main reason why it’s so hard to find a pair of slip-on shoes for a child with narrow feet is that the shoes don’t come with a velcro strap to hold the child’s feet in place, so the child’s heels end up slipping out of the shoes.

I know which slip-on shoes are better for a child with narrow feet from having fitted them before. I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and this experience has afforded me many insights into children’s shoes and the way they fit. Due to my experience in fitting thousands of kids, I became familiar with the best shoe brands for children with narrow feet and the best styles among those brands.

There are 2 key features that your child’s slip-on shoes must provide:

✅ Narrow Heel Counter: This feature helps prevent your child’s heels from coming out of the shoes.

✅ Narrow Toe-Box: This feature makes your child’s slip-on shoes fit the shape of your child’s narrow feet better.

The issue is that children’s shoes don’t come labeled as with a “narrow heel counter” or with a “narrow toe-box”, so parents don’t know how to find them.

The good news is that I know exactly which slip-on shoes provide these 2 features from having fitted them before. I will show you a selection of the best narrow slip-on shoes for kids, but first I want to make sure that you know your child’s exact foot size. If you are not 100% sure of your child’s foot size, you will end up wasting a lot of time and money by having to constantly return the shoes.

In order to figure out your child’s foot size, I always recommend parents to take their children to their local shoe store to be fitted for shoes, so let’s start by making sure that you don’t have a good fitting children’s shoe store in your area. While most specialized children’s shoe stores have been closing down, there are still certain stores that do a great job fitting children’s shoes. I created a map that showcases the best fitting children’s shoes stores by state:

If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to find a store in your area, then take a look at another article I wrote where I describe how to figure out your toddler’s foot size in 2 simple steps from home:

The Best Narrow Slip-On Shoes for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

These are the narrowest slip on-shoes that I have fitted before. Please make sure to provide your child with a certain amount of growing room — 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters — between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes. This usually translates to a half a size longer in terms of shoe size.

If after trying these slip-on shoes the shoes still feel too wide for your child’s feet, then there is another method we can try to make the shoes fit the shape of your child’s narrow feet. Have you ever heard about shoe tongue pads?

Tongue pads are adhesive-backed pads that are placed in the tongue of the shoes and they work in all enclosed shoes.

Tongue pads are extremely effective for children with narrow feet because they prevent heel slippage by snugging up a loose-fitting shoe. While they are used for several different reasons, tongue pads are known for keeping the foot from sliding forward and keeping the heel from slipping

All that you need to do is place the tongue pad below your child’s slip-on shoes tongue like shown in the image below:

If you want to learn more about how effective tongue pads are and where to get them for the best price, please refer to the following article:

Now that you know which are the best slip-on shoes for kids with narrow feet and which tongue pads to use in case the shoes are still too wide, you are ready to make the most informed decision.
