The Best Shoe Brands for Kids with Wide Feet – The 3 Deepest and Widest Shoe Brands!

The Best Shoe Brands For Kids With Wide Feet

Are you having a hard time finding a pair shoes for your child with wide feet? Do you know what are the 3 most popular shoe brands for children with wide feet?

I have fitted several different shoe brands for children with wide feet, but there are 3 particular ones that have proven to be the most consist ones when it comes to manufacturing shoes for children with wide feet.

I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years at a premier children’s shoe store specializing in children with foot and leg problems, but our store provides regular shoe fittings as well.

We carry some of the most supportive children’s shoes and orthotics, and I am familiar with which shoe brands and which shoe styles among those brands are better than others.

For the last 3 years I have been helping parents find the perfect pair of shoes for their children online.

The best shoe brands for children with wide feet are:

❤️ New Balance

❤️ Saucony

❤️ Stride Rite

Among this 3 shoe brands there are certain shoe styles that fit better than others, and those are the ones I will describe in this article.

Most parents make the common mistake of assuming that once they find a shoe style that is labeled as wide or extra wide, that shoe style will automatically fit the shape of their child’s wide feet. In addition to fitting the shape of your child’s wide feet, the shoes need to also be able to accommodate the shape of your child’s instep.

When children have wide feet, there are 2 key features that the shoes must provide in order to fit the shape of their feet:

✅ Depth: Shoes that are deep will allow your child’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes, and prevent the top part of your kids’ feet from rubbing against the top part of the shoes.

✅ Round Toe-Box: This feature will prevent your kids’ toes from overlapping and rubbing against one another or the side of the shoes.

The issue is that parents are usually confused about how they are supposed to find shoes that provide these two features since shoes don’t come labeled as “deep” or with a “round toe-box”.

I know exactly which shoe styles will provide these 2 features since I have fitted them before. At the shoe store that I work for we fit a lot of children with wide feet and also children who need to wear orthotics inside their shoes. Orthotics take a lot of space inside the shoes,  so I have gotten familiar with which shoe styles are deeper and wider to accommodate an orthotic.

I will provide you with a selection of the best shoe styles among these 3 popular children’s shoe brands. In addition, I will also show you which shoe brand will be more appropriate depending on your child’s walking stage and foot conditions.

✅ Stride Rite provides the best types of shoes for a child who is still learning how to walk.

✅ Saucony makes some of the most affordable, yet supportive and lightweight shoes for toddlers who are already walking.

✅ New Balance shoe styles will be the most appropriate choice if your child has a foot condition that requires more supportive and substantial shoes. This shoe brand is also the most effective one when it comes to fitting children with high insteps.

Let’s take a look at the best shoe brands for kids with wide feet.

Stride Rite ❤️

The Best First Walking Shoes for Babies with Wide Feet ✅

I have noticed how most babies who are learning how to walk have wide or extra wide feet. This doesn’t mean that their feet will always stay wide or extra wide, since they might be carrying a little extra baby fat that might go away as they keep growing. However, some children’s feet stay wide for the rest of their lives.

Stride Rite makes shoes in wide and extra wide widths that come with a round toe-box and that are also deep. I have fitted some of the widest babies feet in Stride Rite shoes, and those are the styles I will describe below.

Another awesome feature that Stride Rite shoes provide unrelated to the width of the shoes is how the shoes come with sensory pods in the bottom of the sole of the shoes, which allows your baby’s feet to get a better feeling of the ground and feel more confident and stable when taking those first steps.

Please keep in mind that I only write reviews of shoe styles that I have fitted before, otherwise I wouldn’t know how well-made they are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.

All of these shoe styles come with sensory pods in the soles to help your baby balance better.

This selection of shoes fits “true to size”, which means that you need to go a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the standard foot measuring scale (Brannock device), in order to allow for growing room.

Saucony ❤️

The Best Shoes for Toddlers with Wide Feet ✅

If you have a toddler at home with wide feet who is already walking and needs a pair of shoes, Saucony makes some of the best styles that cater to these needs.

Saucony makes certain shoe styles that are specifically targeted to toddlers who are already walking or still in the learning walking stage, since their shoes are lightweight, flexible, breathable, and durable.

These shoes also come with a more substantial and supportive sole, since toddlers who are already waking put more pressure on their feet and legs.

Saucony makes some of the best shoes for toddlers at an affordable price.

New Balance ❤️

The Best Shoes for Older Kids with Wide Feet ✅

New Balance is my to-go shoe brand for older children with wide feet or children of any ages who have a foot condition and need a pair of orthotics to be fitted inside the shoes.

New Balance makes the deepest shoes with the roundest toe-boxes. This shoe brand is ideal for any child who has extra wide feet and a very high instep.

In addition to fitting a child with wide or extra wide feet and a high instep, New Balance shoes are supportive, lightweight, and flexible.

I presented you with the best shoe brands for kids with wide feet. Please keep in mind that while there might be some other children’s shoe brands available in wide and extra wide widths, none of them compare to the quality and support that Stride Rite, Saucony, and New Balance shoes provide.

You have probably heard of other shoe brands such as Pediped, See Kai Run or Sperry (just to name a few), but the 3 shoe brands that I recommend provide several features in addition to fitting children with wide feet.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you can’t seem to find a particular shoe style for your child with wide or extra wide feet. I am always explaining to parents that it doesn’t matter how wide their kids’ feet are, there is always at least one particular shoe style out there that will fit the shape of your kids’ feet perfectly, and I will help you find it.
