If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday, summer, winter, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes your child needs. This tool is extremely valuable 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 is cut (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. Go to the link below:
