If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday, summer, winter, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes you need. This tool is extremely valuable since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. I also tell you exactly how each shoe style is cut (short, long, narrow, or wide) and will let you filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic! You can find that tool here:

14 Comments on Best Shoes For Wide Feet

  1. your best shoes for wide feet information is just wonderful. I myself know what is like growing up and having a terrible time in trying to find decent shoes for my very wide feet. I had to take what was available which left me wearing ugly, and I do mean ugly shoes (of course this was some years ago) People definitely do need a site like this to finding decent shoes especially when wide widths are involved. Thank you

    • Angela,

      Even though there are not that many wide and extra wide widths available in children’s shoes, fit and comfort for your little ones should be the parents first priority. The issue is that most brands are cutting down in making wide and extra wide shoes since there is no demand for them. At the store I work for we sell tons of them, but we are a fitting store. If you go to most shopping malls you will find that most retailers do not fit shoes, that is the reason why they do not even carry shoes in different widths. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Good read for a mom of 2 toddlers. It seems like I’m buying new shoes for them every time I turn around and the basic break down at the end of each review for style, price, cheapest place to buy,fit, and rating were great and really made comparing easy. The article about buying shoes for extra wide feet was great too. I also have to buy wide shoes for them to make sure they have enough room for those ever growing feet. 🙂

    • Skye,

      Are your children being fitted for their shoes? How old are they? Children’s feet do grow fast, but if properly fitted with some growing room they should last them longer. I am glad you found the information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

  3. Hi there,

    Lovely post and those shoes do look ever so cute for my little munchkin – my little sweetie! Howeverr, how can I tell if MY little girl has wide feet or not ? I don’t know of any ways of measuring or telling for sure. Size (in length) yes no problem easy but how can you tell or know if a child (2 years old) has wide feet or not ?

    • After doing this for over five years I can tell just by looking at their feet. The measuring tool I use which is called the brannock device comes with a feature on the side which reads the width. There is also another factor, the instep of the foot. If the instep is high, that means the child will probably need wide shoes. Are there any fitting shoe stores available in your area? If not, send me an email with a picture of her feet and I will be able to tell you. My email is: jvalenzuela@fittingchildrenshoes.com

      Thank you for sharing!

  4. Wow, this is an excellent idea! I can say from personal experience that our shoes can affect our posture, our back strength, our alignment and so much more! I love these options for kids and think it’d really help so many kids to use something like this.
    As I read one thing I wished is that you had more options to choose from. Also if you put a divider line in between the products it’d be easier to see what is applicable for each one 🙂
    This is a great review!

    • Camden,

      You are a 100% right when you state that shoes will affect our children’s posture, back strength and alignment, and at the same time it will prevent foot injuries, leg and foot pain among many others. Thank you for sharing!

  5. This is something that both me and my son need. We both have wide feet and I thought it wasn’t really going to affect me that much until I bought a pair of shoes that had a little bit of a narrower toe box than average shoes and my feet can’t stand wearing those more than an hour. Please advise.

    • Joon,

      Were you measured for those shoes? Are you positive about the shoe size that you need? Wearing shoes that are too narrow can have several drawbacks and it can lead to severe foot, knee, or back problems. Please make sure you are buying your son with the correct pair of shoes. Take a look at my review on “best shoes for wide feet” so you can make the most informative decision next time.

  6. We bought exactly the Saucony Baby Ride Sneakers you review above for one of our sons. They fit well and held up to a toddler running around. I also totally agree that they are super lightweight. I highly recommend these as well. And they do have them in additional colors – we bought them in gray with lime green trim.

    • Teresa,

      The Baby Ride is one of the best kids shoes that Saucony ever made. I am glad that you agree with the quality of the shoe! Thank you for stopping by!

  7. Juan Pablo please help! I am looking everywhere for my daughter I need xw winter boots for her where is the best place or kind to buy and where can I find them…not a snow boot a warm winter boot…thank you

    • Hello Shelly,

      Have you tried the brand Jambu for her? I have fitted some of the widest feet in their shoes. Here you can find a link to their widest fashion/winter boot: Widest Winter Boot From Jambu

      This boot only comes in whole sizes, so make sure to get them a little bit big so she can use them for the whole winter. They are waterproof and warm. Please let me know how it works out or if you have any other questions.
