The Best Place to Find Kids' Shoes
for all Foot Shapes and Foot Problems

School Uniform Shoes for Boys – The Best Back to School Shoes for Boys!


Have you been looking for a pair of good uniform shoes for your boy? Are you looking for school shoes that are supportive, comfortable and also durable? There is a small selection of school uniform shoes for boys that are supportive, comfortable, durable, and can accommodate different foot shapes (narrow, medium, wide, extra wide) at the same time.

Several parents reported having a hard time finding supportive and durable back to school shoes that met the school requirements and were capable of fitting the shape of their child’s feet. The school uniform shoes I recommend are available in different widths such as medium (M), wide (W), and extra wide (XW).

My Experience Fitting Children’s Shoes – Over a Decade of Experience!

I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years, working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses in helping children with “complicated” foot shapes as well as foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. Over the years I got familiar with the best school shoes for kids.


Below you can find a selection of the best school uniform shoes for boys that are better-made and provide better support than others. You should check whether your child’s school requires the shoes to be made of a specific material/color.

I only write reviews about shoes that I have fitted before since 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.

Unsure About What Shoe Size You Should Order?

In each of the descriptions of the shoes, I indicate whether you need to order a half size or a whole size bigger than your child’s foot size to provide the correct amount of growing room.

Did you know that your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer if you don’t provide him with the correct shoe size? This brings me to this next question:  Are you 100% sure that you know your child’s exact foot size?

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

I created a resource that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state:

The Best Kids’ Shoe Stores in the United States – Where To Go for Proper Fittings

If after looking at that resource 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:

How to Measure Your Kids’ Foot – 2 Simple Steps to Determine Foot Length and Foot Width

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.

Below you can find the answer to the most popular questions parents have asked about these shoes:

  •  Can I Put These Shoes in the Washing Machine?

No, I don’t recommend putting these shoes in the washing machine as you might end up ruining the materials.

  • Do These Shoes Come with Removable Insoles?


  • Can I Fit an Orthotic Inside These Shoes?

Yes, these shoes provide extra depth, meaning that the orthotic will fit deeply inside the shoes, and won’t give your child the impression that his or her feet are coming out of the shoes.

  • Do These Shoes Provide Good Traction?

Yes, these shoes provide excellent traction. Your child will be able to run around at school without a problem. However, I don’t recommend wearing these shoes for sport-related activities.

  • Are These Shoes Durable?

Yes, these are the most durable kids back to school shoes on the market right now. The shoes are practically indestructible, as they come with a reinforceable toe-box and a durable outsole.

Do you happen to have a girl who is ready to go back to school and needs a pair of uniform shoes as well? I actually wrote an article where I describe the best school uniform shoes for girls.

  1. Hi Juan, great website you have here. I’m wondering if you have any other recommendations for boys black school shoes? My son is a size 13, with a narrow foot and a high arch/instep.He can do laces but would probably rather not! He doesn’t like any of the recommendations you have here and although my usual approach would be to tell him to suck it up and deal with it, I’d like to not go to war with him about going back to school just yet!
