Fitting Children's Shoes

I review children’s shoes based on my vast experience in fitting children’s shoes for the last 10 years. I currently work for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems.

Please take a look at the description that describes how each particular sandal style fits (short, long) to increase the chances that you order the correct sandal size. As a standard rule of thumb, I recommend 3/16 of an inch or 0.4 centimeters of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.

If you are unsure of what your child’s length and shape are take a look at an article I created where I describe how to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

All of the sandal styles described below are supportive, lightweight, flexible, and waterproof. Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best sandals for kids with medium feet.

Parents need to understand that not all children can wear all type of shoes, since they are limited to their particular foot shape -narrow, medium, wide, extra wide – and instep height also plays a key role. The sandals described in this article are all capable of accommodating the shape of a child with medium feet. You can also check in the shoe description whether the sandal is capable of accommodating high insteps.

If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday sneakers, dress shoes, winter boots, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes you need. This tool is extremely effective since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. I also tell you exactly how each shoe style fits (short, long, narrow, or wide) and will let you filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic.
