The shoe style I am about to review is one of 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! This is truly one of 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 shoe is extremely well-made and it provides support for your child to wear it around all day!

But before you can make a decision on wether this shoe style is 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 this shoe style!
1- What Type Of Foot Does This Shoe Style Fits?
This shoe style will fit a child with a medium, wide, or extra wide foot since it comes in different widths. Keep in mind that this shoe style WON’T fit a child with a narrow foot.
2- What Type Of Features Does This Shoe Style Provides?
This shoe style has excellent structure (your child can wear these shoes as his or her everyday shoes) and it provides arch support, ankle support, and great durability (one of the most durable kids’ shoes) .
The shoe is still lightweight, flexible, and breathable. All of these features make this shoe style one of the best everyday shoes for boys with extra wide feet.
3- Can My Child Wear This Shoe Style As His Or Her Everyday Shoes?
4- Can I Put This Shoe In The Washing Machine?
I don’t recommend putting this shoe style in the washing machine, since you might end up ruining the materials.
5- Does This Shoe Style Comes With A Removable Insole?
6- Can I Fit An Orthotic Inside This Shoe Style?
YES, this shoe style is 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). This is the best shoe style for a child that wears orthotics.
I have tried different orthotics in different shoes, and they tend to FIT the best inside this particular shoe style.
7- Does This Shoe Style Comes 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. This shoe style comes with a very firm heel counter, which means that it provides excellent ankle support.
8- Does This Shoe Style Provides Good Traction?
YES, this shoe style provides excellent traction. Your child will be able to run around at school without a problem! This shoe is a multi-purpose shoe, meaning that your child can wear it to his sport related activities, as long as the coach doesn’t require a specific sport shoe.
9- Is This Shoe Style Durable?
YES, one of the most durable kids’ shoes in the market right now. This shoe style is practically indestructible (your child will outgrow his or her shoes before anything happens to them!)
The shoe also comes 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 Is This Shoe Made Of?
This shoe style is made out of suede and a rubber sole.
