Are you looking for a pair of Jordan shoes in wide widths? Do you want a style that is fashionable, but lightweight and supportive at the same time?
When children spot a particular shoe style that they like, it’s hard to change their mind and they will keep asking you for that shoe style even though it might not be the best fitting shoe for their feet. I have seen lots of children disappointed that they couldn’t wear Jordan shoes since they have wide feet.
The good news is that there are certain Jordan shoe styles that will work better for your kids with wide feet, and I will help you find them.
I have been working at a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know which shoe brands and which shoe styles are better than others by having tested them and fitted them myself.
Just so you know, the Jordan shoe styles that I will describe below will fit a child with narrow, medium, or wide feet, but they will NOT fit a child with extra wide feet.
I noticed that there are certain Jordan shoe styles that fit better than others, meaning that some of them provide more support and FIT better. For example, if you happen to have a child with wide feet that needs a pair of Jordan shoes there are certain Jordan shoe styles that are deeper and that come with a rounder toe-box.
Just because a particular shoe style is labeled as “W”, it doesn’t mean that it will automatically fit the shape of your child’s feet.
There is only a small selection of Jordan shoes that come in wide widths. The good news is that I have fitted them before, and I will be able to show you which are these shoe styles so you can provide your child with shoes that fit properly.
It’s extremely important that you provide your child with the correct shoe size and the correct shoe width, otherwise you can create all sort of issues to your child’s feet such as blisters, calluses and corns.
In this article I will show you a selection of the best wide Jordan shoes for kids, that way you can stop pinching your kids’ toes and keep their feet healthy.
Let’s first take a look at what features these shoe styles will provide and how you can make sure you are providing your child with the correct shoe size.
Wide Jordan Shoes for Kids – The Features
The shoe styles that I will describe below will provide the following features to your kids’ feet:
- Support: This is important whether your child is going to wear these shoes for playing basketball or for casual daily wear. Supportive shoes minimize the impact that your kids’ feet take every time they come in contact with the ground.
- Lightweight: this feature will prevent your kids’ feet and leg from easily getting tired.
- Flexible: shoes made from flexible materials will allow your child to move his or her feet naturally every time they take a step.
- Breathable: shoes made from breathable materials will allow your kids feet to breathe and prevent the formation and buildup of bacteria inside the shoes.
- Traction: This feature will prevent your child from slipping and falling down.
I always explain to parents that it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if your child doesn’t wear the correct shoe size, he or she won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer. What’s even worse, you will end up creating all sort of foot issues to their feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.
I always recommend parents to take their children to be properly fitted for shoes at their local kids’ shoe store. The issue is that most children’s shoe stores have been closing down, and parents don’t know where to take their children to be properly fitted for shoes.
That is the reason why I decided to create a map where I describe the best fitting children’s shoe stores in the United States:
IF you still can’t seem to find a good fitting children’s shoe store in your area, then START by reading an article I wrote where I describe the simplest, yet most effective way measure your child’s foot size from home:
Now that you know how to figure out your child’s foot size from home and what features the shoes must provide, you can find below a selection of the best wide Jordan shoes for kids:
All of these shoe styles fit “true to size”, which means that you need a half a size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
