Fitting Children's Shoes

Parents need to understand that not all children can wear all types of shoes, since they are limited to their particular foot shape —narrow, medium, wide, extra wide— and instep height also plays a key role. The back to school shoes described in this article are all capable of accommodating the shape of a child with wide feet. You can also check in the shoe description whether the shoe is capable of accommodating high insteps.

Take a look at the description that describes how each particular shoe style fits (short, long) to increase the chances that you order the correct shoe size. All of the back to school shoes described below are durable, supportive, lightweight, and flexible.

If you are unsure of what your child’s foot length and shape is take a look at an article I created where I describe how to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

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 resource I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes you need. This tool is extremely effective 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 fits (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.
