Sandals For Extra Wide Feet – The Best Summer Sandal For Kids With Extra Wide Feet!

The Best Shoes For Wide Feet

The sandal I am about to review is the best sandal for kids that have extra wide feet, and they can wear it during the summer season and summer activities such as summer camp!

What most parents look when it’s time to provide their kids with a summer sandal is for the sandal to be durable, supportive, and to fit the shape of their kids’feet. However, when a child has an extra wide foot, it’s extremely HARD to find a summer sandal that fits!

Please keep in mind that I write these reviews for those parents who don’t have a kids’shoe store in their area. Remember that is always better to take your kids to be properly fitted for shoes at your local children’s shoe store, where an experienced shoe fitter can properly measure your kids  feet and find shoes that FIT. The issue is that several parents don’t have a children´s shoe store in their area, and they must purchase their kids’ shoes online.

Those parents should take a look at this post to get an idea on how to purchase their kids online:

10 Comments on Sandals For Extra Wide Feet – The Best Summer Sandal For Kids With Extra Wide Feet!

  1. Once I open each shoe they all show a M width. My son is an XW. Will the M fit work for him?

    Also. He is a 6 1/2 XW big kid
    Biggest size I found was 6 M big kid.
    Will these work for him or do I need to shop men’s shoes?

    He is only 8 but he’s big for his age and has bigger feet!

    Sorry to be troublesome.
    Thank You!

    • Hello Amanda,

      The sandals don’t come labeled as XW (Extra Wide), but the regular width fits really wide. I have fitted children with extra wide feet in these sandals before. I am not 100% sure they will work for his feet but you should definitely try them. I will recommend that you order the size 6, because they fit very long. If the 6 is not long enough, let me know and I would recommend a pair of men sandals for him (please keep in mind there might be a big price jump between kids and men’s shoes).

      I hope this helps!

  2. Where is the info. on the sandal? On a page about socks for wide feet there’s no list either? What am I missing here? Thanks.

    • Hello AK,

      Sorry that you were not able to see it. Here is a link to the sandals:

      Sometimes all you need to do is refresh the page.

      I hope you can see them now otherwise please let me know.

  3. Hi Juan,
    So nice to have found a blog dedicated to kids shoes! I find it so hard to get proper fitting shoes. I was wondering – could you reccomend a sandal for an early walker (14 month boy) for extra wide feet? (We currently have a tsikahoshi sneaker in size 7 that you reccomend on your website and the fit is perfect).

    Thank you,

    • Hello Hannah,

      I am glad that you found the website informative. Here you can find my recommendations for your boy with extra wide feet:

      Stride Rite Sandal: Option 1 Make sure you select the “W” (wide width) option. I have fitted boys with extra wide feet in this sandal before, because it runs really wide.

      Stride Rite Sandal: Option 2 make sure you select the “XW” (extra wide) option.

      Are these the types of sandals you had in mind? Let me know, otherwise I can help you find something different.


      • Hello Juan,

        THanks again for your response. I have one last question about two more brands: Momo baby and also Livie & Luca – do either of these fit wide?

        Thanks again and kindest regards,

        • Hello Hannah,

          I have never fitted the shoe brand “Momo baby” but I have fitted “Livie & Luca” and the shoes will fit a child with wide feet but NOT with extra wide feet.

          I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
