I review toddler’s shoes based on my vast experience from fitting children’s shoes for the last 10 years. I currently work for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems.
Parents need to understand that not all children can wear all type of shoes, since they are limited to their particular foot shape —narrow, medium, wide, extra wide— and instep height also plays a key role. All of the shoe styles described in this article are capable of accommodating a toddler with extra wide feet. You can also check in the shoe description whether the shoe is capable of accommodating high insteps.
Take a look at the description that describes how each particular shoe style fits (short, long) in order to increase the chances that you order the correct shoe size. If you are unsure of what your toddler foot size is take a look at an article I created where I describe how to figure out your toddler’s foot size from home:
All of the shoe styles described below are supportive, lightweight, flexible, and breathable. Without further ado, let’s take a look at a selection of the best toddler sneakers.
Is your toddler dealing with a particular foot condition such as low muscle tone, flat feet, or rolled ankles? Contact me directly and I will recommend a specific shoe style: email@example.com
If you need any other type of shoes such as dress shoes, summer sandals, winter boots, 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 effective 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 fits (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.
