Twinkle Toes Shoes for Girls – The Most Fashionable Shoes for Your Child!


Has your child been asking you for a pair of Twinkle Toes shoes? Does she love how the shoes sparkle and light up?  While these shoes are among children’s most favorites, it’s important to find out whether these shoes provide the correct amount of support to keep your kids’ feet and legs healthy. I am going to show you a list of the best Twinkle Toes shoes for girls based on my many years of shoe fitting experience.

My Experience Fitting Children’s Shoes – Over a Decade of Shoe Fitting Experience!

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now that focuses on helping children with “complex” foot shapes as well as foot and leg problems, but we provide 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 are better than others.


Why Do Children Love Twinkle Toes Shoes So Much?

Twinkle toes are among the most popular light up sneakers among young girls. The shoes come with several fun colorful designs and lights that your child can turn on and off with the press of a button.

There are only certain Twinkle Toes shoe styles that are good for your child’s feet. I have fitted most of their styles, and some of them are too stiff, flat, and they lack ankle and arch support. The good news is that I will show you which styles are more flexible, provide better support, and come well-padded around the heel area.

The shoe company that makes Twinkle Toes shoes is called Skechers, and I am sure you have heard of this shoe company before. Twinkle Toes are appropriate as long as your child wears them for a couple of hours a day —no more than 4 hours— I always describe them as “fun shoes” that will put a smile on your kids’ faces every single time they get to wear them.

It’s important to understand that Twinkle Toes are not meant to be worn as everyday shoes, as they lack the support and structure your child needs to run and play comfortably. The shoes manufactured by this shoe brand are only going to fit children with medium, wide, or extra wide feet.

I will provide you with a selection of the most comfortable and supportive Twinkle Toes shoes for girls shortly, but first let’s make sure that you know your child’s exact foot size, especially if you will be ordering your kids’ shoes online.


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

I am always explaining to parents that it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if the shoes are not fitted properly, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.

That is the reason why I always recommend parents take their children to their local children’s shoe store that they trust. The issue is that most fitting shoe 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 to know what size to order.

I created a resource that showcases the best-fitting children’s shoe stores by state:

The Best Kids’ Shoe Stores in the United States – Where To Go for Proper Fittings

How to Retrieve Your Child’s Exact Foot Length and Shape

If after looking at that resource you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to take a look at an article I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

How to Measure Your Kids’ Foot – 2 Simple Steps to Determine Foot Length and Foot Width

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.


While there are several different Twinkle Toes shoe styles for children, not all of them provide the same quality and support. Certain styles are more lightweight and flexible, and provide better support than others.

Now that you know how to figure out your child’s foot size from home, let’s take a look at a selection of the best Twinkle Toes shoes for girls.

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. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

The Best Twinkle Toes Shoes for Girls ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Below you can find a selection of the best Twinkle Toes shoes for girls with medium or wide feet. These are the styles that we sell at the shoe store that I work for, and I am familiar with how they fit and the amount of support that they provide. 

What Shoe Size You Should Order?

In each of the descriptions of the shoes, I indicate whether you need to order a half size or a whole size bigger than your child’s current foot size to provide the correct amount of growing room.

In addition, if you have a child at home with narrow feet who has been asking you for a pair of Twinkle Toes shoes for a while now, there are certain steps that you can take to make the shoes fit the shape of her feet better.

Twinkle Toes for Kids with Narrow Feet – Let’s Find a Solution!

There have been several disappointed children that were not able to fit in Twinkle Toes shoes because of their narrow feet. However, if we place a tongue pad inside the shoes it will fill out any remaining gap inside the shoes.

Have you ever heard of tongue pads for shoes? They are adhesive-backed pads that fit below the tongue of the shoe and push the heel back, securing and preventing your kids’ heels from slipping out of the shoes.


I actually wrote another article where I describe tongue pads in more detail and how they are supposed to fit into shoes. Go to the link below:

By the way, shoes don’t have to be gender oriented anymore. I have fitted several boys that came asking for a pair of Twinkle Toes sneakers for themselves.

You will never forget your child’s reactions when they get their first pair of Twinkle Toes. Talk about excitement!

  1. I love this article. I had wore one of the twinkle toes in 2020 but now, the shop had been moved from level 2 to level 1 in one of my nearby shopping malls shoes were no longer on sale and I ended up buying online also. But still, these shoes were cute and I wanted to wear the sparkle wings. I love the periwinkle and the pink one.
