Have you been looking for a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for your child? Do you want to know which styles are going to provide more comfort and support to your girl’s feet?
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for the last 10 years, where we specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we also provide regular shoe fittings as well. I have fitted thousands of children’s shoes, and I am familiar with which shoe brands and which shoe styles are better than others.
Lelli Kelly shoes is one of the most popular shoe brands for kids (when it comes to fashion shoes). Children love how these shoes are fun and unique, since they combine color, sequins, quality materials and fashion trending appliques. However, one of parents biggest concerns is whether these shoes are going to be durable and supportive enough for their child’s feet.
In terms of support and durability, I have noticed how there are only certain Lelli Kelly styles among these shoe brand that will hold up and support your kids’ feet properly.
At the children’s shoe store that I work for, we display our shoes in shelves and children are immediately drawn to Lelli Kelly shoes due to their colorful designs.
Several parents are hesistant to provide their kids with Lelli Kelly shoes, since most of their styles are very bright and the shoes are priced in the higher end.
Your kids are nagging you, as they’ve seen it, but are you still a bit hesitant to make the investment? This is understandable, since you probably have several questions that need to be answer about the quality, support, and durability of these shoes.
Before you decide to purchase a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes for your child, we need the answers to the following questions:
- Will they provide enough support for your child to be able to play and run around comfortably?
I want to clarify that most Lelli Kelly shoes are not meant to be worn as every day shoes, since they lack the support, structure, flexibility, and breathability for your child to play in them for the whole day. With that said, there are certain styles that your child can wear for longer periods of time, but their main piece of footwear should be a pair of sneakers.
- Are these shoes lightweight and flexible?
Most of their shoe styles are lightweight but not as flexible.
- Will these shoes fit the shape of your child’s feet?
These shoe styles will fit the shape of a child with narrow, medium, or wide feet, but they won’t fit the shape of a child with extra wide feet.
I describe Lelli Kelly shoes as “fashion shoes”, meaning that they are meant for your child to wear them for a couple of hours a day (not more than 5), and they are meant to be worn for places that don’t involve your child performing high impact activities.
With that said, there are certain Lelli Kelly shoes that provide better support than others, and if your child has been asking you for a pair of Lelli Kelly shoes, I will show you which are the best styles to choose from.
Lelli Kelly Shoes – Why do they Cost More than Other Shoes?
I don’t like to get involved too much in describing any shoe style from a fashion point of view, since my role and expertise lies in the quality and support that the shoes provide.
I have heard from several different parents that Lelli Kelly shoes are cute, comfortable, and they are the sweetest things they have seen for kids.
Please keep in mind that Lelli Kelly shoes tend to be more expensive than other type of shoes and you might be asking yourself: Why there is such a big price difference?
- First of all, Lelli Kelly shoes are hand made with attention to fine detail; the canvas range in summer features a double hand stitched sequin and beading design over the prints. Then they are individually tested using a 3kg weight to make sure they are securely attached to the shoes. It’s important for parents to know this since one of the first questions they have is whether the sequins of the shoes will fall apart ❤️
- Secondly, the shoes come with soft leather insoles to keep your kids’ feet comfortable. These insoles will cushion and support your kids’ feet. However, I still believe that these shoes should not be worn as every day shoes, since the amount of support that they provide is not enough compared to a sneaker made by New Balance, Saucony, or Stride Rite (just to name a few examples) ❤️
- Finally, Lelli Kelly pays close attention in choosing the right factories to ensure you get the best quality shoes available that are durable ❤️
I still remember one comment a parent made when she called a shoe style made by Lelli Kelly a piece of art. This is what that parent had to say:
“This shoes come with a truly a lovely creative design and looks like they will hold value because of their uniqueness and high price tag. My daughter is only 3 years old and I wanted her to wear special shoes for her Birthday and Christmas. So worth the purchase!”
Let’s take a look at a couple of pictures showing you how unique Lelli Kelly shoe styles are:
Buying Lelli Kelly Shoes ONLINE – Get The Right Size!
I always recommend parents to take their children to their local children’s shoe store that they trust, the issue is that most stores have been closing down and parents need to end up buying their kids’ shoes online. There is nothing wrong with this, but you must know your child’s exact foot size in order to know what size to order.
I created a map that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state, so I suggest you start by taking a look at that map:
If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to taking a look at an article along with a video I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

These shoe styles fit short, which means that you need to provide your kids with a whole size longer of the size that they measured in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
Please make sure that you provide your child with the correct shoe size, since shoes that are too long, too short, too narrow, or too wide will create all sort of foot problems to your child’s feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

Remember that when children are playing and running around they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level.

This is the reason why it’s so important to provide your kids with shoes that are supportive and that fit the shape of their feet correctly.
