Are you having a hard time finding a pair of extra wide shoes for your boy? Do you feel like you try on a whole bunch of different pairs on his feet but you always end up empty handed?

Finding a pair of extra wide shoes for children can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience if you don’t know what shoe styles to look for. I have helped hundreds of boys with extra wide feet find the perfect pair of shoes for their feet. Let’s take a look at some images of children with extra wide feet:

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. Over the years I became familiar with the best shoes for kids with extra wide feet.

The most common mistake that I see parents make is to assume that a shoe that is labeled as extra wide (XW) can automatically fit the shape of their child’s extra wide feet.

What Makes the Shoes I Recommend Effective for Extra Wide Feet?

In addition to being available in extra wide widths (XW), your kids’ shoes must also provide 2 key features:

✅ The shoes must provide extra deep in order to prevent the top part of your kids’ feet from rubbing against the top part of the shoes. Let me show you the difference in depth between one of the shoes I recommend and a different style:

✅ The shoes must provide a rounder toe-box in order to prevent your kids’ toes from rubbing or overlapping against one another. Let’s take a look at the difference between a shoe that provides a rounder toe-box and one that doesn’t:

Parents are confused as how are they supposed to find shoes that provide extra depth and round toe-boxes if shoes don’t come labeled that way. The good news is that I have fitted those type of shoes and I will help you find them.

Without further due, let’s take a look at the best extra wide shoes for boys.

I only write reviews of shoes that I have fitted before, otherwise I wouldn’t know how well-made they are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.

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

These shoes are also capable of fitting children with high insteps. Do you know what the instep is? The instep is the top part of the foot:

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