Fitting Children's Shoes

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now that focuses in helping children with “complex” foot shapes as well as foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. Over the years I became familiar with the best basketball shoes for kids with wide feet.

There are only a few basketball shoes available for children with wide or extra wide feet and they are made by New Balance and Adidas.

If you allow your child to play basketball in shoes that are too narrow your child might end up developing all sorts of foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

I also created a resource that describes the best basketball socks for children:

Basketball Socks for Kids – Protect Them from Getting Blisters

When children are playing basketball, they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level, putting more pressure on parts of their bodies that 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.

If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday sneakers, summer sandals, winter boots, 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:
