Have you been looking for a pair of white dress shoes for your girl? Do you feel like you always have a hard time finding her the correct type of shoes?
I have been helping parents find the correct type of shoes online for the last three years. It doesn’t matter if your girl has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet, there is at least one particular shoe style out there that will fit the shape of her feet perfectly and I will HELP YOU find it.
Since I have worked at a children’s shoe store for 10 years, I am familiar with most kids’ shoe styles and how they FIT. I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics at a premier children’s shoe store specializing in proper fit for over forty years. We specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fitting as well.
It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in different widths, since that’s the only way we can guarantee to FIT every single child.
White shoes are appropriate for all dressy occasions. Whether your child is getting ready to be a flower girl at a wedding, needs a shoe to wear to church, or has a pageant coming up, white dress shoes will go perfectly with any occasion.
Because children don’t wear their dress shoes often (most children wear them for a maximum of two days a week), always make sure you leave a good amount of growing room for your child to grow into the shoe.
When you are buying your kids’ shoes online, it’s hard to know whether you are providing them with the correct shoe size. That’s the reason why I wrote an article where I describe the simplest, yet most effective way to make sure your child is wearing the c0rrect shoe size and you can find that article here:
The white dress shoes I will describe in this article are made of leather, which is the best type of material your kids’ shoes can be made of since it forms to the shape of your kids’ feet and allows the feet to breathe. The white shoes i will describe below are also available in different widths such as narrow, medium, and wide, that way we can make sure it will fit the shape of your kids’ feet, no matter how narrow or wide they are.
Most parents are not aware that shoes come in different widths, and sometimes they don’t provide their children with a particular shoe style because they think it’s not available or it doesn’t exist.
I want you to remember one thing: It doesn’t matter how narrow or how wide your kids’ feet are, there is at least one shoe style out there that will fit the shape of his or her feet perfectly and I probably have fitted it before.
In this post I will describe the best white dress shoes for girls, but before I show you how these shoes look like, I want you to learn about what features a dress shoes must provide in order to keep your kids’ feet healthy.
White Dress Shoes For Girls – Lightweight, Breathable, And Supportive!
Even though your girl might wear her dress shoes for a short period of time and once in a while, the shoes must provide the following features in order to keep her feet healthy. Some parents will allow their kids’ to wear their dress shoes for longer periods of time so it’s important the shoes are ready to provide the support your child’s feet need.
- The dress shoes must come with a firm heel counter in order to provide ankle support.
- The dress shoes must have good arch support in order to prevent our kids’ feet from getting tired and collapsing.
- The shoes must have a strong, durable rubber sole with good traction to allow our kids to play comfortably during that particular occasion.
Because I have been fitting children’s shoes for so long, there are other tips that you should keep in mind before buying your girls dress shoes:
- Your girl won’t wear her white dress shoes very often. With that said, we always want to fit dress shoes in the longer side (fit the shoes a whole size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale).
- Even though your child will wear these shoes for a short period of time and once in a while, we still want the shoes to be flexible and lightweight.
- Avoid flats that don’t come with an elastic. They definitely look great, but you can’t leave any growing room for your child since the shoe doesn’t have a velcro strap or anything to hold your kids’ feet.
White Dress Shoes For Girls – The Secret Revealed!
Now that you know how to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size and what type of features a pair of dress shoes must provide for your child, please find below a selection of the best white dress shoes for kids!
The first two shoe styles (starting from the left) run “true to size”, which means that you need to provide your child with a half a size to a whole size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
The last two shoe styles fit “long”, which means that you need to provide your child with a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
Keep in mind that the first shoe style will fit a child with a narrow, medium, wide, or an extra wide foot (as long as you choose the shoe width accordingly).
When purchasing your kids’shoes online choose “N” for narrow, “M” for medium, “W” for wide, “XW” for extra wide.
Remember how I told you at the beginning of the post how it doesn’t matter how narrow or how wide your kids’ feet are and how there is always at least one shoe style out there that will fit the shape of their feet? This just doesn’t apply to dress shoes, it applies to sports shoes, winter shoes, summer shoes… you name it!
For example, did you know that soccer shoes for children with extra wide feet existed? Most parents are not aware of this and end up fitting their children in longer cleats in order to compensate for the width. Please DON’T do this, since you will end up copromising your child’s stability.
If you have a child or know of a child who has extra wide feet and needs soccer cleats, you can find them in an article I wrote called:
This is just one example, but you can definitely find any type of shoes for kids with narrow, wide, or extra wide feet. It’s highly likey I have fitted them before so do not hesistate to contact me.
Keep Your Kids’ Feet Healthy – Don’t Forget About The Socks!
Socks play a key role in keeping our kids’ feet healthy since they act as a barrier between our kids’ feet and the shoes. They prevent the creation of bacteria inside the shoes and also prevent the formation of blisters since they will cushion your kids’ feet.
Keep in mind that even the softest dress shoes are still stiffer than your kids’ everyday sneakers, that’s the reason why we must provide the child with a pair of good socks, so the shoes won’t feel as and hard and stiff on their feet.
