Top Rated Snow Boots for Kids with Wide Feet – Extra Deep and Available in Wide Widths!

Are you having a hard time finding a pair of snow boots for your child with wide feet? Are you looking for a wide snow boot that is waterproof, insulated, lightweight, and affordable at the same time? I will show you a selection of the top rated snow boots for kids with wide feet based on my many years of shoe fitting experience.

Finding a pair of snow boots for children with wide feet can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience since most snow boot brands only carry standard sizes (medium widths). Even though most snow boots are not available in wide or extra wide widths, I have fitted certain snow boots that provide round toe-boxes and extra depth which makes them ideal for children with wide feet.

Snow boots are the type of footwear that your child might wear only for only a couple of times a year and for very short periods of time. This often leads to parents not putting a lot of thought into the type of snow boots that they provide for their children. You might want to rethink that. It only takes a couple of wears in a poorly fitted snow boot for your child to develop a foot issue such as a blister, callous, or corn.

If you are in a rush you can go directly to the selection of the top rated wide snow boots for kids.

I strongly believe that the shoes a child wears can be life-changing, and I always emphasize to parents the importance of providing their children with the correct shoe size as well as the correct shoe style.

Does Your Child Have a High Instep in Addition to Having Wide Feet?

Some children might have a high instep in addition to having wide feet. Is this the case with your child? The instep is the top part of the foot, and when it’s high, it makes it much more complicated to find shoes that fit. Take a look at all of the extra foot volume that needs to be fitted inside the shoes when a child has a high instep:

Snow boots that provide extra depth allow the child’s feet to fit deeply inside the boots, which prevents the top part of the feet and toes from rubbing against the top part of the snow boots.

The issue is that parents don’t know which snow boots provide extra depth since shoes don’t come labeled as “extra deep”. The good news is that I know exactly which snow boots are deeper and wider than others and I will help you find them.

Examples of Snow Boots with Extra Depth and Rounder Toe-Boxes

1️⃣ Extra Depth

2️⃣ Rounder Toe-Boxes

3️⃣ Oversized Openings

Before I provide you with a selection of the top rated snow boots for kids with wide feet, I want to make sure that you know your child’s exact foot size. If you don’t know your child’s foot size, you won’t be able to order the correct size snow boot.

Are You 100% Sure of Your Child’s Foot Size? – Let’s Find Out!

I created an article that describes a 2-step method that will help you identify your child’s exact foot size from home. I recommend that you start by taking a look at this article. 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.

Please keep in mind that snow boots are not available in half sizes, they are available in whole sizes only. This means that if your child measures a foot size 5, you will have to provide your child with a snow boot size 6. If your child measures a foot size 5 1/2, then you might have to provide your child with a snow boot size 7. Makes sense?

Now that you know your child’s foot size and what features these snow boots provide, you are ready to take a look at a selection of top rated snow boots for kids with wide feet.

Please note that you might be able to find other types of snow boots for a cheaper price, but you need to make sure that they are insulated, waterproof, and fit the shape of your child’s wide feet since a foot issue might end up costing you a lot more in the long run.

Please note that even though some of these snow boots are not labeled as wide (W) or extra wide (XW), they are the widest snow boots that I have fitted before for toddlers and older children since they provide extra depth and rounded toe-boxes.
