The shoe styles I am about to review are the best extra wide shoe styles for boys made by New Balance. Have you noticed how hard it is to find wide and extra wide shoes for your child? The selection is usually pretty small, but parents are just glad to find at least ONE shoe style to fit their boys extra wide feet!
When I write a review about a particular children’s shoe style is because I have fitted that particular shoe before and I know not only how well the shoe FITS, but also the QUALITY it provides! I have been working for a kid’s shoe store for over 7 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and their feet.
I also only review shoes that I have fitted before and that are top of the line in terms of durability, support, and comfort! These are truly the best shoe styles made by New Balance, not just because it will fit a child with an extra wide foot, but also because the shoes are extremely well-made and they provide support for your child to wear it around all day!

But before you can make a decision on whether these shoe styles are the MOST appropriate for your kids’feet, you must know the answer to some important questions.
Here are the 11 most POPULAR answers to the most important questions parents have asked and must know before purchasing these shoe styles!
1- What Type Of Foot Will These Shoe Styles Fit?
These shoe styles will fit a child with a medium, wide, or extra wide foot since it comes in different widths. Keep in mind that these shoe styles WON’T fit a child with a narrow foot.
2- What Type Of Features Will These Shoe Styles Provide?
These shoe styles have excellent structure (your child can wear these shoes as his or her everyday shoes) and they provide arch support, ankle support, and great durability (they are also some of the most durable kids’ shoes) .
These shoe styles are still lightweight, flexible, and breathable. All of these features make these shoe styles the best everyday shoes for boys with extra wide feet.
3- Can My Child Wear These Shoe Styles As His Or Her Everyday Shoes?
4- Can I Put These Shoes In The Washing Machine?
I don’t recommend putting these shoe styles in the washing machine, since you might end up ruining the materials.
5- Do These Shoe Styles Come With A Removable Insole?
6- Can I Fit An Orthotic Inside These Shoe Styles?
YES, these shoe styles are very deep (meaning that the orthotic will fit deeply inside the shoe, and won’t give your child the impression that his feet are coming out of the shoe). These are the best shoe styles for a child that wears orthotics.
I have tried different orthotics in different shoes, and they tend to FIT the best inside these particular shoe styles since they are very deep.
7- Do These Shoe Styles Come With A High Heel In The Back Of The Shoe?
NO, certain children don’t like their shoes coming up too high in the back. These shoe styles come with a very firm heel counter, which means that they provide excellent ankle support.
8- Do These Shoe Styles Provide Good Traction?
YES, these shoe styles provide excellent traction. Your child will be able to run around at school without a problem! These shoes are multi-purpose shoes, meaning that your child can wear them to his sport related activities, as long as the coach doesn’t require a specific sport shoe.
9- Are These Shoe Styles Durable?
YES, they are the most durable kids’ shoes in the market right now. These shoe styles are practically indestructible (your child will outgrow his or her shoes before anything happens to them!)
These shoes also come with a reinforceable toed-box, so no matter how many times your kids drag their feet when walking or running, they won’t be able to destroy these shoes!
10- What Are These Shoes Made Of?
These shoe styles are made out of suede and a rubber sole.
11- Do These Shoe Styles Come In Different Colors?
