Kids with Long Toes – The Best Shoes for Kids with the Middle Toe Longer Than the Big Toe


Are you having a hard time finding a pair of shoes for your child with long toes? Do you feel like you try a whole bunch of different shoes but you always end up empty-handed? I have put together a list of the best shoes for kids with long toes that I have fitted at the shoe store where I work.

To accommodate your child’s long toes there are 2 key features that your kids’ shoes must provide:

1️⃣Extra Depth: This feature helps prevent you from having to buy shoes that are too large to prevent your kids’ toes from rubbing against the front of the shoes. Deep shoes will allow your kids’ feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and allow for extra space for your toes. Let me show you the difference between a shoe that provides extra depth and one that doesn’t:


2️⃣ Rounder Toe-Boxes: This feature helps prevent your kids’ long toes from rubbing or overlapping against one another as well as preventing your kids’ toes from rubbing against the side or front of the shoes. Let me show you the difference between a shoe with a round toe-box and one with a pointier one:


I only review shoes that I have fitted before, as that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

The Importance of Wearing the Right Types of Socks

Keep in mind that socks play a key role in accommodating your kids’ long toes. There are certain types of socks that are seamless and won’t constrict your kids’ toes or make them rub against one another. You can find out which are the best seamless socks for children in the following two articles:

I always recommend parents take their children to be properly fitted for shoes at their local children’s shoe store that they trust. The issue is that most specialized children’s shoe stores have closed down.
