Best School Shoes for Kids with High Instep – Extra Deep, Comfortable and Durable!

back-to-school-shoes-for-kids-with-high-insteps

Children with high instep always seem to have a harder time finding shoes that fit. Whether you are looking for a pair of sneakers or school shoes for your child, you will find your child complaining about the shoes rubbing against the top part of their feet (instep)  or simply not “feeling right”.

Why having a high instep makes it so much challenging to find shoes that fit? When children have high instep there is a lot of extra foot volume that needs to be fitted inside the shoes. This means that the shoes need to provide extra depth in order to allow your child’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and prevent he top part of their feet from rubbing against the top part of the shoes.

Below is an example of a child’s foot with a high instep. Some parents confuse having a high instep with having a high arch. Keep in mind that your child might have a regular arch or even be flat footed and still have a high instep. In the image below the child has a regular arch and a very high instep.

I know which are the best school shoes for kids with high instep from having fitted them before. I work for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on helping children with foot problems or “complicated” foot shapes. Over the years I became familiar with the best school shoes for kids.

What Makes the School Shoes I Recommend Effective for Kids with High Instep?

The school shoes I recommend provide 2 key features that makes them ideal for children with high instep:

Extra Depth: This is the most important feature that your kids’ shoes must provide in order to accommodate the shape of their high instep. Let me show you the difference in depth between one of the school shoes I recommend and a different style. Do you notice how the school shoe on the right is a lot deeper compared to the school shoe on the left? This is just one example of the shoes I recommend.

School shoes that open nice and wide allow the child’s feet to easy slide inside the shoes and prevents them from struggling every time they have to get their shoes on and off:

Where Can Parents Find School Shoes for their Kids with High Instep?

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.

Unfortunately the selection of school shoes that can accommodate the shape of a child with a high instep is very small. The good news is that I know exactly which school shoes are deeper than others from having fitted them before.

I will show you a selection of the best back to school shoes for kids with high instep shortly, but I suggest that we start by making 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.

For example, do you know if your child has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet? Do you know your child’s exact foot length? If you don’t know the answers to these questions I strongly suggest that you take a look at the following article:

How to Measure Your Kids Foot – 2 Simple Steps to Determine Foot Length and Foot Width

By know you should know your child’s exact foot size. Believe me that is really important that you order your kids’ shoes in the correct length and width. Shoes that are too short or too narrow can cramp your kids’ toes and make them overlap and rub against one another, leading to blisters and other foot issues. On the other hand, shoes that are too wide or too long allow for too much foot movement inside the shoes, which can also lead to foot issues.

Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best school shoes for kids with high instep.

The school shoes I recommend below are available in different widths such as medium (M), wide (W), and extra wide (XW), so make sure that you choose your child’s shoe width accordingly.

In order to allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order these school shoes a half a size larger than the size their toddler’s feet measure. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters of space between your toddler’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.

All of these back to school shoes provide extra depth and open up widely so your child won’t have to struggle getting the shoes on and off. In addition to fitting the shape of your child’s high instep, these back to school shoes are durable and comfortable.

If your child happens to have narrow feet I recommend that you take a look at the article below:

Do More Expensive School Shoes Translate Into Better Shoes for Your Child?

More expensive shoes don’t automatically translate into better shoes for your child. You can find supportive school shoes made from high quality materials at reasonable prices.

With that said, some parents make the mistake of buying cheaper back to school shoes which are usually made from low quality materials, so they end up buying three pairs in the year which doesn’t make the shoes any cheaper.

Children are peculiar about what they wear and how it fits, and this is demonstrated most basically through shoe choice. It’s important for parents to remind their children about the importance of well fitting shoes.

School Shoe Policy – Make Sure Your Kids’ Shoes Meet the Uniform Guide

It might sound ridiculous to some parents that shoes can cause so much fuss, but many schools have restrictions on the type of shoes children can and can’t wear. Some of the most popular shoe brands for children such as Nike, Converse, and Vans don’t offer shoes that meet the school rules.

Some schools provide parents with a visual checklist of which shoes are appropriate to wear, so before you decide which back to school shoe to buy for your child, I suggest that you check the school uniform guide first.

Keep in mind that all school policies differ when it comes to the colors and styles of footwear allowed. Some schools require the shoes to be all black or all white, while some others are happy letting their students express their stylish side.
