With Halloween approaching and fashion trends taking sharp turns, kids are no exception when it comes to Halloween preparations. I have put together a selection of the best Halloween shoes for kids.

How do you feel about getting your children a pair of shoes for Halloween that they can also wear as their everyday sneakers? Certain sneakers that light up come with super-heroes prints on them such as Spider-man, Hulk, Captain America or the Elsa from the movie Frozen, just to name a few…

I know what you are thinking as a parent… You probably want to provide your children with a pair of shoes that they can run around in all day and provide enough support for their everyday activities. You don’t want to spend your money on a pair of fun shoes that will not keep your kids’ feet and legs healthy. What if I told you that some of these decorated shoes do have enough support and structure to be worn as an everyday sneaker?

There are a variety of eye-catching and amazing creative kids’ shoes that will match your kids’ Halloween outfits. Let’s look at some of the most popular and unique kids’ shoes that will work for Halloween with exceptionally good designs and impressive quality. Some of the shoes I will describe can be worn as everyday shoes, that way you won’t have to invest money on a shoe that they will only wear once.

Take out your pen and start jotting down this information. You don’t want to miss this! It’s time to update your kid’s closet and get ahead of everyone else’s Halloween costumes!


Light Up Super-Hero and Princess Sneakers for Halloween!

Coming in the brightest colors and made from impressive high-quality leather, these super-hero light-up sneakers are every kid’s fantasy shoes! All girls are inspired and amazed by the famous Disney characters like Rapunzel. Little girls are left in awe when they watch Rapunzel in Tangled with her head full of beautiful golden locks, wearing the most glittering glass shoes. It’s quite understandable when your child wants to dress up like Rapunzel!

The light-up shoes that I recommend are lightweight and not bulky. Have you noticed how most kids’ light-up shoes are heavy and bulky? The styles that I describe in this post are the most durable, flexible, and supportive sneakers for kids. These sneakers are a must-have to match your kid’s Halloween costume. Let’ look at the list of some of the available super-hero and princess shoes in the market:

✅ Spider-man

✅ Captain America

✅ Batman

✅ Hulk

✅ Avengers

✅ Rapunzel

✅ Transformers

✅ Star Wars (Storm Trooper, BB-8, Yoda)

✅ Frozen (Anna, Elsa)

✅ Cinderella


The shoes I describe below have a substantial outsole and a firm heel counter that offers excellent lateral support. They also have mesh linings, which makes them resistant to microbes. Parents have complained about these types of shoes not breathing properly and getting smelly. With the anti-microbial treatment of these linings, the smell and odor of these shoes are no longer a problem!

The Best Kids Halloween Shoes ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Below you can find a selection of the best light-up and character shoes that have excellent support and are lightweight, flexible, and durable. These shoes are capable of fitting children with medium (M) or wide (W) feet.

What Shoe Size Should You Order?

In each of the descriptions of the shoes I indicate whether you need to order a half a size or a whole size bigger than your child’s foot size to provide the correct amount of growing room.

These shoes won’t burden your kids’ feet since they are lightweight and flexible, which allow for the natural movement of the feet.  They all come with hooks and loops so your child can put them on and take them off easily by themselves! Any of the four shoes below can be worn all day without hurting his or her feet!

How to Retrieve Your Child’s Exact Foot Length and Shape

If you want to be 100% sure about what shoe size to order online, I suggest that you follow the instructions in the article below:

Rain Boots with Super – Hero and Princess Characters!

Maybe you want to provide your child with a pair of exciting shoes to wear on Halloween, but they already have their everyday sneakers and you don’t want to spend money on an extra pair of shoes, which is totally understandable!  How about a pair of light-up rain boots with their favorite characters on them?

I believe that these rain boots are a great idea for when your child decides to dress up for Halloween. You have a Halloween costume, and at the same time, you won’t have to worry about your kids getting their feet wet on rainy days in the future. Your child can now comfortably enjoy the rain and jump in puddles!

Is your child inspired by Batman? Does he have a heroic streak in him and wants to dress up as Captain America this Halloween? Would he like the shoes with the exclusive Batman or Captain America logo printed all over them?

Specially designed for kids ranging from 4-8 years old, and even toddlers from 1-4 years old, these characters’ rain boots are made of high-quality rubber, which makes them very strong and durable! These rain boots have a treaded rubber sole which makes them very durable as well, assuring you that your child will outgrow the rain boot before anything happens to it!

These rain boots are waterproof, and they have a very user friendly reinforced pull handles so your child can easily take them on and off. Think about the convenience of not having to help your child every time he or she wants to put on or take off the rain boots!

Halloween Shoes for Your Kid – Choose them Wisely!

The shoes I recommended can be worn for everyday activities as well. I believe most parents don’t want to spend money on a pair of shoes if the child is going to wear them only once. I only review footwear that I know is made out of good quality that will allow the child to perform his or her everyday activities without any problems!

These authentic and reliable shoes are mostly made by Stride Rite and they are designed to fit your kids’ needs and impress them. Their designs look exactly like their favorite characters. All these shoes are insanely creative and offer something out-of-the-box for the children who want to dress up as their favorite characters.

The most important thing is that they are made of good quality and they are reliable. They can even be worn as their everyday shoes! Pick up the ones that match your kid’s tastes and go for it!

12 Comments on Kids Halloween Shoes – Halloween Ideas for Kids

  1. Thank you so much for writing this post! I love Halloween but the shoes is always the toughest part. I never want to spend so much money on one night. I cant believe I didn’t think of buying ones that they could continue to wear like the ones you suggested. I will definitely be bookmarking your page for my shoe references!!

    • Katie,

      I agree, it is hard for parents to invest in a shoe for their children that they might end up wearing only once. Choosing a fun shoe, but that provides support for every day activities is the way to go! Thank you for stopping by, and please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime have any questions.

  2. these shoes and boots are really good looking. i guess i have been looking in the wrong places. never thought of looking in amazon for boots and shoes. always gone to shops, and unfortunately they do not have a wide variety and creative boots. my girls love princesses and especially frozen so i think frozen shoes and boots, they would love em. you do get these boot and shoes in shops but not that nice. these are actually quite good. you have given me food for thought. i think the boots would be better than the shoes considering the current weather. great post. thank you.

    • Hello Arif,

      Keep in mind that is harder for independent shoe stores to carry every single style in every size. The Internet does offer a great variety of styles, but they don’t measure your kids’ feet. If you decide to purchase shoes online, please make sure you are getting them the right shoe size!

  3. Hey Super cool article! I never really think about what shoes to wear until its too late. I know my sisters kids always have super cool shoes but never to really match their costume. I think your Stride Rite selection is very appropriate for costumes, and they are still cool to wear every day. Like you said I wouldn’t want to buy anyone a pair of shoes that they are only going to wear once. Have you purchased any of the options you showed?

    • Kenny,

      I haven’t purchased any of the options I showed, but I have fitted them all. I work as a shoe fitter at a children’s shoe store, and I have been doing it for almost 6 years. The selection of shoes I recommend are not only based on whether they will match your kids’ Halloween costume party, but also in being supportive for every day wear. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

  4. I tend to have the same problem when buying shoes for my kids. They grow up so fast and lose interest in certain shoes but with the shoes presented it might change their minds when they see their favorite cartoon characters and or heroes. I am delighted about the quality which may change a child’s perspective when wearing them. Thank you for showing me this, finally some shoes that my child will be happy to wear.

    • Christopher,

      It makes a huge difference when children wear shoes that they actually love. However, always make sure you have them properly fitted because they will tell you everything fits (even if it doesn’t) in order to wear their favorite shoes!

  5. Hi Juan,

    Great article once again! I just love it!
    I live in a country that does not celebrate Halloween but we have a disguised party soon at school, and I really didn’t know what shoes to buy to suit her costume. She will wear a fairy costume and the stride rite Disney Ariel shoes will fit perfectly!
    However, I will show her these shoes so she can make a choice.
    Thank you very much again for this useful post!

  6. I got my grandchild a pair of the Captain America shoe since you said it can be worn as an every day shoe. He loved it! He also has a wide foot so it helps that the shoe comes in a wide width!

    I will bookmark your site and also tell my daughters about it as it will help them next time they are buying shoes for my grand kids. Do you plan on adding more product reviews to the site? Love the socks as well 🙂

    • Rina,

      I am sure he is super excited about his new shoes. Yes, he can wear them as his everyday sneakers and run around all day, since the shoe is supportive enough. My site serves as a guiding point and I show you which shoes are more supportive than others, but you should only purchase shoes online if you don’t have a local shoe store in your area that you trust. REMEMBER that is always better to have your kids’ feet measured by a shoe fitter, in order to make sure you are getting him the right shoe size.
