Fitting Children's Shoes

The Shoe That Fits

Does your child have a “complicated” foot shape or foot condition that is making it hard to find shoes that fit?

I have helped hundreds of children who were dealing with foot pain due to having flat feet, rolled ankles, or low muscle tone find the correct pair of shoes to significantly reduce, and in most cases fully eliminate the pain.

My Career In Fitting Children For Shoes

My name is Juan Valenzuela and I specialize in children’s shoe fitting. Let me begin by sharing some of my professional experience, highlighting my individual proficiency in fitting your child while also covering the essential basics of children’s shoe fitting.

Having fitted children for shoes for over 10 years and counting, I currently handle approximately one hundred fittings and try-ons per week.


I have sound knowledge and time-trusted experience of the foot, footwear, the complexities of the fitting process, the foot/shoe functional relationship, shoe performance, and, not least of all, styling.  I’m here to listen to you and your child’s story, expressly assess his or her feet, answer questions, and start the fitting process.

I have the experience and kind demeanor to make this process and visit efficient and successful. My job requires someone graced with patience and respect for children.  Having thus far dedicated my twenties to this niche industry, I am devoted to making the fitting experience (and shoe shopping) worthwhile, fun, and, in some instances, life-altering.

 In Their Shoes: Fitting Your Child’s Feet

I would like to emphasize to parents that I do not fit a foot into a shoe with the philosophy and goal that the foot adapt to the shoe.  Rather I fit a shoe onto the foot with the foremost intent of adapting the shoe to the size and shape of the foot.  Whether it’s something as simple as fitting and slipping in some shoe inserts or going up half a shoe size, I work around your child’s feet.

There is a market for children’s shoes and informed professionals exist who can ensure that what was once a headache, a basic, chronic, or overlooked problem, is resolved.  This is accomplished remarkably frequently with a good fitting.  Regardless of footwear challenges perceived or evident, it is imperative that all parents have their children’s feet fitted.  This is crucial in order to ascertain if your child is of narrow (N), medium (M), wide (W), or extra wide (XW) width — a fundamental piece of information from shoe fitting to shoe shopping.
