Does your child have a “complicated foot” shape? Have you gotten your child’s feet measured and were told that your child has a wide foot at the front and a narrow heel?

It can be a frustrating and time-consuming experiencing to find shoes for kids with wide feet and narrow heels. If you have been told that your child has a wide foot with a narrow heel and you have been struggling to find shoes that fit, I will show you which shoes are capable of accommodating that particular foot shape.

I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years at a shoe store that specializes in fitting children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in a variety of widths and sizes, as that’s the only way we can guarantee to fit every single child.

I am familiar with most children’s shoe brands and shoe styles and I know which shoes fit better than others.

Parents seem to have one question in common: Do kids’ shoes with a wide toe-box and narrow heel exist?

Yes, they actually do. It’s very complicated to find shoes that fit for children who are wide at the toe but narrow in the heel; as often times shoes that are wide at the toe are wide in the heel and vice versa. However, there are a few shoe styles that will accommodate your child with that particular foot shape, and I will show them to you shortly.

Let me show you an example of a shoe with a wide toe-box and a narrow heel. Do you notice how the heel of the she is narrower and well-padded? This is an example of a shoe that can accommodate the shape of a child with a wide foot at the front and narrow heels.

Now let’s take a look at what 4 important features the shoes must provide in order to keep your kids’ feet and legs healthy:

✅ Support: Supportive shoes minimize the impact that your kids’ feet take every time they come in contact with the ground. A supportive shoe comes with a substantial outsole and a firm heel counter.

✅ Lightweight/Flexible: The shoes need to be supportive, but  lightweight and flexible at the same time. This helps prevent your child’s feet and legs from easily getting tired.

✅ Traction: A shoe that provides good traction helps prevent your child from slipping and falling, especially when they are walking around slippery surfaces.

✅ Breathable: A shoe that is breathable helps prevent the buildup of bacteria that causes foot odor.

Now that you know what features the shoes I recommend provide in order to keep your children’s feet and legs healthy you are ready to take a look  at the best shoes with a wide toe box and narrow heel.

In order to allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order these shoes a whole size larger than the size their children’s feet measure. This translates to 0.6 inches or 1 centimeter of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.

These are everyday shoes that can be worn for your child’s daily activities. Please keep in mind that if your child’s heels are really narrow, a pair of shoes that come with shoelaces is going to make a huge difference as it will lock your kids’ heels by pushing them against the back of the shoes.

These shoes are also supportive, lightweight, flexible, and breathable, which will keep your kids’ feet and legs healthy. But remember, you must provide your child with the correct shoe size if you want him or her to get the full benefits that the shoes have to offer.

Keep Your Kids’ Feet Healthy – Provide Them with Good Socks!

I have spoken with several parents who have asked me if it’s okay to allow their children to wear their shoes without socks, as children can get pretty fussy about wearing socks. It’s important to understand that socks play a huge role in keeping your kids’ feet healthy, as they act as a barrier between kids’ feet and the shoes, as well as prevent the buildup of bacteria inside the shoes.

While I can’t get into too much detail about the key role that socks play in keeping your children’s feet healthy, there is another post I wrote that explains everything that you need to know about children’s socks:

The Importance of Wearing Socks – Grippers or No Grippers?

I understand that some children don’t allow their parents to put socks on as they can’t tolerate how they feel. However,  there are certain types of socks that are seamless and are great for kids with wide or extra wide feet as they help prevent the toes from overlapping or rubbing against one another.

I have helped numerous children who feel every lump and seam of socks, and if that is the case for your child, you should try a pair of seamless socks. The article below describes the best seamless socks for kids:
