Girls in Women’s Shoe Sizes – The Best Shoes for Girls with Large Feet!

shoes-for-girls-in-women's-shoe-sizes

Are you having a hard time finding a pair of shoes for your teenage girl with large feet? Do you feel like she is in between kids’ and women’s shoe sizes?

The last kids’ shoe size is a size 7 and any shoe size above 7 is considered women’s or men’s shoe sizes.

I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years, working at a specialized children’s shoe store that specializes in children with foot and leg problems, but also provides regular shoe fittings. Over the years I became familiar with the best shoe brands for children and the best shoe styles among those brands.

about-me

I have fitted several young girls that had a foot size larger than a size 7 in kids’ shoes. Even though we are a children’s shoe store, we still carry a selection of women’s shoes for those girls who have large feet.

There first thing you will notice is how there is a big price increase between children’s and women’s shoes. However, the shoes I will describe in this article are supportive, lightweight, flexible, and breathable, but reasonably priced.  I want you to know that the price of shoes is not a reflection of the quality of the shoes. What I mean is that while a higher priced shoe tends to be made from better quality materials, you can definitely find a good pair of durable, supportive shoes at a reasonable price.

Just so you know, if your daughter wears a woman’s shoe size 8 ½ or smaller you can still get the kids’ version of the shoe for a much lower price. This applies to you as well! If you wear a woman’s shoe size 8 ½ or smaller you will be able to get the kids’ version of the shoe and save a lot of money!

You might be wondering, how is this possible? A women’s shoe size 8 ½ or smaller translates to a girl shoe size 7 – which as I mentioned previously is the last children’s shoe size.

While I can’t get into too much detail about how this shoe size conversion works in this article, you should read another article I wrote where I explain this in more detail:

I will show you a selection of the best shoes for girls who are in women’s shoe sizes shortly, but let me first show you what features these shoes provide and how to figure out your child’s exact foot size from home.

You should know that I only review only shoes that are available in different widths such as medium (M), wide (W), and extra wide (XW) to make sure that they will fit all children, no matter the shape of their feet.

Shoes for Girls in Women’s Shoe Sizes – The 5 Most Important Features!

Since we will be looking into woman’s shoes for your child, these shoes must provide certain features to keep your kids’ feet and legs healthy. Some of these features are:

✅ Supportive: For your child to be able to wear these shoes all day, the shoes must provide enough support to reduce the impact that your kids’ feet take every time they come in contact with the ground.

✅ Lightweight and Flexible: While we do want your kids’ shoes to be supportive, they must be lightweight and flexible at the same time. Shoes that are too stiff and heavy will make your kids’ feet and legs tired.

✅ Breathable: Shoes need to be breathable to prevent the build-up of bacteria inside the shoe and also prevent foot odors.

✅ Traction: Shoes must provide good traction to prevent your child from slipping and falling.

✅ Firm Heel Counter: The heel counter is the back part of the shoe that provides ankle support. The firmer it is the better, as it will cushion and support your kids’ ankles and prevent injuries.

If we find a shoe that provides all of these features, your girl will be good to go! However, I am always emphasizing to parents that it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if the shoes are not fitted properly which involves getting the correct shoe length and the correct shoe width, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.

Which brings us to the following question: Do you know your daughter’s exact foot size?

Are You 100% Sure of Your Child’s Foot Size? – Get it Right!

I always recommend parents to take their children to their local children’s shoe store that they trust, the issue is that most stores have been closing down and parents need to end up buying their kids’ shoes online. There is nothing wrong with this, but you must know your child’s exact foot size to know what size to order.

I created a map that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state, so I suggest you start by taking a look at that map:

The Best Kids’ Shoe Stores In The United States – Where To Go For Proper Fittings

If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to take a look at an article I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

How to Measure Your Kids Foot – 2 Simple Steps to Determine Foot Length and Foot Width

In that article I help parents determine their child’s exact foot size and whether the child has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet. I also will be able to tell you whether your child has a high instep or not.

Now that you know what features your daughters’ shoes must provide and how to figure out her foot size from home, you are ready to take a look at the best shoes for girls in women’s shoe sizes.

I only write reviews of shoe styles 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.

The Best Shoes for Girls in Women’s Shoe Sizes ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Below you can find a selection of the best shoes for girls who are already in women’s shoe sizes. These shoes are available in medium (M), wide (W), and extra wide (XW) widths. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

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

Remember that shoes can fit short, long, narrow, or wide, and depending on how they fit you will have to adjust the size that you get for your child.

The most common mistake that I see parents make is to assume that just because their children’s feet measure a certain size in the shoe measuring device, that number automatically translates into their actual shoe size. This misconception usually leads to their kids wearing the wrong shoe size and their kids end up developing all sorts of foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns (which are really hard to get rid of).

For example, if your girl’s feet measure a foot size 7 but the shoes fit “short”, then you will have to provide them with a whole size longer instead of a half a size longer (since the shoes run short), so your child will end up getting a shoe size 8 instead of a 7 ½. On the other hand, if the shoes fit “long”, then you will have to provide your children with the same size that they measured (since the shoes run long). If the shoes fit “true to size”, then you will just go half a size longer of whatever size your children measured at the foot measuring scale.

Makes sense?

Now that you know which are the best shoes for girls in women’s shoe sizes, you are ready to make the most informed decision.

If you happen to need a different shoe style besides a walking/running shoe for your girl, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a comment in the section below and I will help you find them. You can email me at: fittingchildrensshoes@gmail.com

Do you happen to have a good children’s shoe store in your area that you trust? Parents are always asking me where they can get their children’s shoes, so it will be very helpful if you can leave your location and the name of the children’s shoe store that you trust so other parents can benefit from your experiences.

  1. Hi,
    My 10 year old daughter wears a size 9 and we bought the NB 880 recommended here. She prefers the feel of NB shoes but did not like the 860. Do you have any other NB recommendations? Thanks

  2. Hello,
    I don’t know if my previous comment went through so I’ll post again. My 10 year old daughter has the NB 880 recommended here and she really likes them. She wears a size 9 medium. She prefers the feel of the NB shoes but doesn’t like the 860s. Can you recommend any other NB shoes for her? We live in Illinois.
    Thanks.

    • Hello Lousia,

      That’s a low profile insole that will fit in most shoes as long as you remove the original insoles of the shoes. Was your daughter complaining about foot or leg pain?

      Were you able to get shoes for your daughter?

      I recommend that you apply this shoe lacing technique so your daughter can get the full benefits that the insole has to offer: How to Tie Shoes with Orthotics – Stop Heel Slippage

      That shoe lacing technique also prevents the heels from slipping off the shoes.

  3. No, she does not complain of any pain. The employees at the store measured her foot and said she appeared to have a slight inward roll. We got the 880s but she needs another pair of shoes so we’d appreciate your suggestions. Thanks.
