Kids Star Wars Shoes – Choose The Most Supportive Styles!

Star Wars Sneakers For Kids

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… What is it about Star Wars movies that make them as popular as ever even after 40 years of their first film, still catching the imaginations of multiple generations?! Can someone explain to me how kids have became so obsessed with a 35-year-old movie that they have never seen?

I have been working at a children’s shoe store for over 6 years now, and parents tell me that the Force has taken over their households too! Children come to the store asking for a pair of Star Wars shoes! Most parents can’t explain and are amused by their kids’ Star Wars obsession!

In the United States, people spend around $500 million every year on “Star Wars products”. Even though most children have not seen any of the Star Wars movies, they still ask their parents for a plastic light saber or shoes that have characters from the movie!

Star Wars Shoes For Kids

The Star Wars movies have pretty much everything a child likes: spaceships, creatures that look like dinosaurs or teddy bears, and plenty of other fantastic characters!

I have been working at the same children’s shoe store for over 6 years now, and I have seen an increasing amount of Star Wars products being made by shoe companies such as Sketchers and Stride Rite. We went from having 1 or 2 styles of Star Wars shoes, to having 10 to 15 different shoe styles for kids to choose from!

Lately, children have been more vocal than ever when they have been asking their parents for Star Wars shoes! However, if you have read any of my previous posts, you should know by now that the one thing I care the MOST is providing children with shoes that provide support to be worn as everyday sneakers!

I will describe the best Star Wars sneakers for kids that can be worn as everyday sneakers!

Should I Let My Child Run And Play In His Star Wars Shoes?

Absolutely! If you choose one of the supportive styles I recommend, you can let your kids’ run around and play at recess, the playground, or even kick the ball around the soccer field!

However, if your children are somewhat serious about playing a particular sport, you should invest in a pair of sport related shoes in order to perform at their best! Most of these shoes are available in velcro closure, but there are some styles that come with shoe laces! Remember that if your child has any sort of stability issue, you should always choose shoe laces instead of velcro closure!

Are Star Wars Shoes Appropriate For Everyday Wear?

It all depends on the style you choose for your child to wear! Some Star Wars shoes are too bulky, too heavy, or not flexible enough to be worn as everyday sneakers! However, there are a few styles that are appropriate for everyday wear, and I have fitted them all before!

Sketchers is a shoe company that makes several pairs of Star Wars shoes! The company has come a long way in creating more substantial, supportive, flexible shoes for kids. It seems like every year they top their previous shoe styles!

If I would have wrote this post two years ago, I would have written that Star Wars shoes are NOT appropriate for everyday wear, but SOME of the shoes they are making NOW, allow your kids’ to play and run all day and provide them with the support they need!

There are a few Star Wars shoes that are lightweight, with a substantial sole and a firm heel counter. Allow your child to wear his or her favorites shoes, while you get the peace of mind that the shoes are are providing the support they need to keep their feet and legs healthy!

Here is a selection of Star Wars shoes that are appropriate for everyday wear!

Star Wars Shoes In Wide Widths – Do They Exist?

The ones made by the shoe company Stride Rite come in wide widths, and they will fit a child that has a wide or extra wide foot! The styles made by Sketchers don’t come in wide widths, and they tend to fit only a medium width foot.

For the longest time, I remember kids with wide feet complaining to their parents that they didn’t have any light up shoe choices when it came to choosing their shoes. Now, even if your child has an extra wide foot, he or she will be able to find that perfect pair of Star Wars shoes that they have been wanting to get for a long time!

Below you can find a selection of Star Wars shoes that come in wide widths:

I also wrote a post where I describe the best kids’ Star Wars slippers. You can find that post here:

10 Comments on Kids Star Wars Shoes – Choose The Most Supportive Styles!

  1. When reading your article, it seems as if you are writing about my son 🙂 He hasn’t seen Star Wars movie but he started to ask for different Star Wars products, also shoes. We bought him Crocs Star Wars clogs and he was happy about them. Not sure though whether or not they are good for his feet – do you have any experience with Crocs?

  2. Thanks for the info. My 3 year old has the most bizarre shaped feet I have every seen, they are not like either her mother or fathers! She has a supernarrow heel and then her feet are shaped like a pie into super wide stubby toes. But that’s not the only problem sizing her, her feet are also really high, like she has extra fat on the top of her foot. Do you have any suggestions for this foot type? They don’t need to be starwars but something lightweight and durable.

  3. When I need a shoes for my kids I now know which website I should visit. Having read about the information you provided in choosing kids’ shoes now I understand the importance of shoes that are fitted properly.

    No matter how nice your kids’ shoes are or how much your child begs to get a particular shoe, it’s not worth getting the if they won’t be comfortable on their feet.

    Children need to wear a shoes that would protect their feet and legs as they play and getting hyper the whole day. I think this article of yours is very helpful among parents.

    • Indeed children shoes are important. That’s why the Star Wars shoes I recommend in my post are the most supportive and flexible ones. I am very careful about the shoes I recommend for kids’, if I haven’t fitted them before or I am not 100% confident about the support they provide, they won’t make it to my website.

  4. Thanks for a good sharing about the Star Wars kids shoe. It can be seen that you put more attention towards the suitability and comfort of the shoe,rather than the outer design alone. I fully agree with you that parents should be more careful when buying shoes for their kids. A wrong shoe size will affect their feet as they grown up and it can bring several foot and leg issues.

    I love that these slippers come with good grippers so the child will not slip and fall round the house!

  5. You’re right, there really is a fine line between fashion/toys and what is actually good for kids, so it’s great to know that there is actually Star Wars and popular designs that do take into consideration how important support is when it comes to shoes, especially when it concerns our kids! I’ve checked out some of your other posts too, I didn’t realize there was so much to know about children’s shoes!

    • Kegan,

      I was actually happy to see Skechers improve their kids Star Wars shoe styles. These shoes have become really soft and flexible, when they used to be heavy and un-supportive. I hope you have a kids’ shoe store in your area where you can take them to have their feet properly measured!
