Wide Soccer Cleats For Kids – The Best Wide And Extra Wide Soccer Cleats For Children!

Wide Soccer Cleats

Do you have a child with wide or extra wide feet that likes to play soccer and you are having a hard time finding cleats that fit? Have you been looking for a pair of soccer cleats that come in wide or extra wide widths?

Most parents don’t know that soccer cleats for children with wide or extra wide feet actually exist There is actually only one soccer shoe style that will fit children with wide or extra wide feet, and I know which style it is because I have fitted this style before.

Important tip: There is actually two soccer shoe styles now that are available in wide widths.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for the last 10 years, where we specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings 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.

If you provide your child with a pair of cleats that are too narrow, you will end up creating all sort of foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns!

I know how important it is to provide children with the correct pair of shoes and I am always emphasizing to parents the importance of providing their children with the correct pair of shoes in the correct shoe size.

I want you to remember one thing: It doesn’t matter how narrow or wide your child’s feet are, there is always at least one shoe style out there that will fit the shape of his or her feet perfectly and I will help you find it.

In order for children to get all the benefits that a soccer cleat has to offer you must provide them with the correct shoe size (and by this I mean the correct shoe length and the correct shoe width).

I can guarantee you that a cleat that is too short, too long, or too narrow, will have a direct impact on how your child performs on the field. I have helped several children that wore cleats that were too narrow and they developed  blisters, calluses, and corns. What’s even worse, they weren’t able to play for a couple of consecutive days because of their foot issues.

If you are not sure whether your child is wearing the correct shoe size or not, begin by reading a post I wrote where I describe the most effective and simplest way to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size:

How To Measure Kids Shoe Size From Home – In Less Than 30 Seconds!

When playing soccer or any other sport, children are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level, since they are running faster and engaging in more strenuous activities. I have had several cases of children having knee pain and leg pain after playing soccer, and most of the time this is simply due to them not wearing the correct pair of cleats.

Let me show you a selection of the best soccer cleats for kids with wide or extra wide feet.

Children Soccer Cleats

STOP Buying Longer Cleats – Fit Them Right!

One of the most common mistakes I see parents make when buying soccer cleats for their children with wide feet is to get them longer in order to take the pressure away from the widest part of the foot. I have spoken with several parents that explained me that because they weren’t aware that soccer cleats came in different widths, they kept trying longer sizes until the shoes didn’t feel tight anymore.

Please stop doing this!

If you provide your child with shoes that are too long you will end compromising your child’s stability and make him/her more prone to falling down.

By providing your child with a pair of wide or extra wide cleats, you won’t have to get the cleats too long and you will be keeping your kids’ feet and legs healthy.

When Should I Provide My Child With Soccer Cleats?

I believe that there is not a set age to start wearing cleats.  I believe that it depends on the size and weight of your child, and their muscle development should also be taken into consideration.

Sneakers with soles that provide good traction are a better choice for young children. Having young children wear cleats might increase their risk of injury.

The best way to figure this out is to ask your kids’ soccer coaches, since they will be able tell you when your child is ready to start wearing cleats.

Please take into consideration that children without cleats tend to slip and fall specially when the grass is wet.

The Best Wide Soccer Cleats for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Have you ever heard of the shoe brand named Zephz? This is the only shoe company that makes soccer and baseball cleats that come in wide and extra wide widths. This is the number 1 cleat that I recommend for children that have wide or extra wide feet. I have fitted this soccer cleat style at the children’s shoe store that I work for, and I can guarantee you that it will even fit even the widest feet out there.

The new style that was released in 2019 fits and looks better than the previous one. The cleat also comes with extra shoe laces that come with different colors, so your child can match them up with their favorite colors or team jersey.

Below you can find the best soccer cleat for children with wide or extra wide feet that I have fitted before. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

This cleat fits “true to size”, meaning that you need to get a half a size longer of the size that your child measured in the standard foot measuring scale (Brannock device) in order to leave the proper amount of growing room.

I have noticed how fashion oriented shoes have become the trend for some children (specially as they get older). Shoe brands such as Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour are children’s number 1 choice. But in order to keep your kid’s feet healthy, providing them with the correct shoe size and the correct shoe style is more important than the brand name. Please use your best judgment and keep reminding your children why it is important to wear cleats that fit.

If your child is somehow serious about playing soccer, please note that it’s almost impossible to learn proper form in sneakers, due to the simple fact that most sneakers have a wedge. Grab a pair of cleats and notice how they are generally flat. When the coach says is the right time to wear soccer cleats, go ahead and provide your child with a pair of well fitted soccer cleats.

Soccer Socks for Kids – Prevent Blisters, Calluses, And Corns!

Did you know that blisters are common in children who engage in soccer no matter what level they are playing? Blisters can develop not only from wearing the wrong shoe size, but also from wearing socks that don’t provide enough cushion.

Always check your kids’ feet to make sure that they don’t develop any blisters, specially on the back of the heel and bottom of the foot. Blisters form due to the repeated friction that occurs between the feet and the cleats, which causes the layers of skin to separate from each other.

Soccer socks are important because they are meant to protect your kids’ feet against irritation and infection. Most parents believe that the main purpose of soccer socks is to hold the shin guards in place but that’s not the only purpose. The primary role of soccer socks is to protect the feet from the cleat itself, without compromising the fit of the cleat.

Here you can find a selection of the best children’s soccer socks that I have fitted before. Please refresh your browser if you can’t see the recommendations.

Now that you know which are the best soccer cleats for children with wide or extra wide feet and which socks will keep their feet healthy, you are ready to make the most informative decision!

Prevent your children from developing blisters, calluses, and corns by providing them with the correct pair of soccer cleats and with socks that properly fit.

21 Comments on Wide Soccer Cleats For Kids – The Best Wide And Extra Wide Soccer Cleats For Children!

  1. These Zephz cleats work great. Our son loves the cool designs and colors, and it’s a relief to finally find some soccer cleats that fit his super wide feet.

    • Hello Britney,

      Most parents are not aware that soccer cleats for kids with wide or extra wide feet actually exist, and they end up fitting their children in soccer shoes that are too narrow and cramp their kids’ toes. This can lead to several foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns. I am glad that they worked out for your son!

      • The New Balance “wide width” cleats are quite narrow. They have several models, not just that one, but all are narrow. Narrower than the Diadora standard width, which is the best I have found, but not really satisfactory. Zephz does not make toddler / little kid sizes so still no good options for a 10.5 W or WW foot. If I could find a model in real leather I could try stretching it with isopropyl alcohol or shoe stretch liquid.

        • Hello Mary,

          I am sorry that the New Balance style didn’t work for your child. It has worked well for certain children with wide and even extra wide feet, but it all depends on the instep of the child’s foot. Children with really high insteps will have a hard time fitting in this cleat. I will let you know if I find a cleat that is made 100% leather.

  2. I am in Canada and can only find Zephz with delivery to Canada for 222.00 dollars. Do you know of another brand that makes extra wide youth soccer cleats?

  3. My child measures 1.5 ee. We were really disappointed when ordering the zephz that they’re both too narrow and too short. They also are unfortunately quite low quality as we received them and already noticed a breakdown in the color of the shoe. We purchased them through zephz and will be returning them this week.

    • Hello Amy,

      I am sorry you had a bad experience with the cleats. You mentioned that the cleats were too short, maybe you should try them in a size 2 or 2.5 Zephz cleats tend to hold up pretty well, which makes me wonder if you had bad luck with that particular style.

  4. Hi. I was hoping you may be able to help. I’m trying to find soccer shoes for my daughter who has wide feet. She doesn’t need it to have the clear/spike part. I’ll be in London for a week and thought to look there as I live overseas otherwise and there are no options as such where I am. Thanks for your help

  5. Hi! My son has a wide foot with an extremely high instep! I live in the US and ordered the Lotto Spectrum wide width soccer cleat and it fit well for my son. He made it through 2 seasons (Fall and Spring) before outgrowing them. Have you checked out this brand before?

    • Hello Amy,

      Thank you so much for letting me know. I don’t recommend shoe styles that I haven’t fitted before, but I will try this soccer cleat style on a couple of children with wide feet and see how it works out.

      • Hello Anna,

        You can buy them from Amazon or New Balance. The issue is that most soccer cleats are not available in a toddler size 8.5. Did the coach recommended wearing outdoor cleats? There are other soccer cleats that are available in smaller sizes but they might not fit the shape of your son’s wide feet.

  6. Hi, I hope you can help. Your advice for finding wide width sneakers was spot on, and the New Balance that we bought were perfect.

    Now I am on the hunt for wide width TURF shoes. There seem to be some option for cleated shoes, but I am specifically after turd shoes. We tried New Balance Furon Dispatch in wide, but the toe box is still too narrow (especially after adding the necessary socks).

    Any suggestions? New Balance was sort of our last hope.


  7. Hi Juan!

    Our local New Balance store was hesitant to recommend the NB 404, as they didn’t think it was appreciably wider in the toe box than the Furon Dispatch turf shoe that we tried.

    After ordering FIVE different pairs of Adidas Copa models, we finally found one pair that seems to work. The Copa 19.4 turf shoe is wide through the toe box, and as the shoe runs about a half size small, ordering a half size up seemed to comfortably accommodate thick soccer socks, and not be too long.

    Thanks so much for the assist!
