The Best Wide Basketball Shoes for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Please keep in mind that I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and the way they FIT. This is a specialized shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. I am familiar with the best shoe brands and the best shoe styles among those brands from having fitted them before.
There is only one basketball shoe style available for children with wide or extra wide feet and it’s made by Adidas.
When children are playing basketball, they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level, putting more pressure in parts of their bodies where they are not used to. Your child will be making movements such as sudden stops and quick direction changes that require shoes to provide excellent traction. The shoes must also be supportive, flexible and lightweight.
Let me show you the only basketball shoe style available for children with wide and extra wide feet.

If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday, summer, winter, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes your child needs. This tool is extremely valuable since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. I also tell you exactly how each shoe style is cut (short, long, narrow, or wide) and will let you filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic. Go to the link below:
