Private School Shoes for Girls – The Most Versatile and Popular Style!

Have you been looking for a pair of private school shoes for your girl? Private schools usually have a strict uniform policy that requires children to wear specific shoe styles to school. While I have fitted 3 different shoe styles that children can wear to private school, there is a particular shoe style that has proven to be the most popular and versatile. Let me show you which are the best private school shoes for girls that I have fitted before.

Girls are particular about what they wear and how it fits, and this is demonstrated most basically through shoe choice.  It’s important to provide children with shoes that they feel comfortable wearing, but they must understand that they cannot walk away with shoes that are too tight or too loose.

What Makes the Private School Shoes that I Recommend Ideal for Your Child?

Some of the private school shoe requirements involve a solid brown or black leather shoe with closed toes and closed heels. No platform shoes or slipper shoes might be allowed.

The shoe styles that I will describe below provide good support to minimize the impact that your kids’ feet and legs take every time they come in contact with the ground. In addition to being supportive, the shoes are also lightweight, flexible, breathable, and durable.

However, I always explain to parents how it doesn’t matter how many good features a shoe provides, if the shoe is not fitted properly, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer. It all starts with providing your child with the correct shoe size.

A shoe that is too short can make your child’s toes overlap each other and rub against the shoe, while a shoe that is too long will allow for too much foot movement inside the shoe. This constant rubbing and friction can lead to the formation of blisters, calluses, and corns.

I will show you which are the best private school shoes for girls shortly, but first I want to make sure that you are 100% sure of your daughter’s foot size so you can order the correct shoe size online.

Are You 100% Sure of Your Child’s Foot Size? – Get it Right!

I always recommend parents take their children to their local fitting children’s shoe store that they trust, the issue is that most fitting stores have been closing and parents have to end up buying their kids’ shoes online. There is nothing wrong with this, but you must know your child’s exact foot size to know what size to order.

Let’s make sure that you don’t have a good-fitting children’s shoe store in your area. I created a resource that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state.

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

If after looking at that list you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to take a look at an article I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home.

In that article I help parents determine their child’s exact foot size and whether the child has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet. I also will be able to tell you whether your child has a high instep or not.

Now that you know how to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size, let’s take a look at which are the best private school shoes for girls.

I only write reviews of shoe styles that I have fitted before, otherwise, I wouldn’t know how well-made they are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.

The Best Private School Shoes for Girls

Below you can find the best private school shoe style for girls. This style can fit girls with narrow, medium, and wide, as long as you choose the shoe width accordingly.

This shoe style will fit a child with narrow (choose “N”) medium feet (choose “M”), wide feet (choose “W”).

This shoe is made out of leather with full welt stitching and it comes with a rubber sole for maximum durability, which means that it’s highly likely that your girl will always outgrow this shoe before she wears them out.

Shoes for Private School – Stylish and Supportive!

The style made by the shoe brand Sperry is the most popular and versatile one for girls that go to private school. This shoe style is the most versatile one because it’s made of high-quality materials, it’s durable, offers everyday support and it’s available in different widths such as narrow, medium, and wide.

If you have a girl with narrow feet you should probably know by now how hard it is to find shoes that fit. I have fitted children with extra wide feet and parents are always complaining about how hard it is to find shoes for them, but actually it’s harder to find shoes for a child with narrow feet. The great news is that this shoe style is available in narrow widths as well!

Let’s take a look at all the features that this shoe style has to offer:

  • Classic lace-up oxford that can be dressed up or down.
  • Soft suede upper.
  • Textile lining and insole.
  • Classic lace-up closure.
  • Durable rubber outsole.
  • An ideal choice for school uniforms.
