I know a lot of kids have very wide feet which can cause difficulties with shoe shopping, but surely I can't be the only one with a kid who has very narrow (but long) feet?! What are the best brands for these feet? I got a pair of Livie&Luca shoes & Pediped shoes off babysteals and when they arrived I couldn't believe how wide they were! Length they're okay, and I can tighten them up to a certain extent but they still don't really fit IYKWIM? Anyone know what else to try?
S/O Shoes for narrow feet?
Keds tend to run narrow, and I have even bought slim width once. I've also had luck with certain styles of Stride Rite--the line used to be called "Toddler Tech", and they seemed to run narrow. But my narrow footed one is a girl--so that might not be all that helpful ;) Otherwise, I would try Stride Rite's website in hopes they have narrow widths online that they don't carry in stores. I think New Balance sneakers also come in widths.
Thanks for the suggestions. I got quite excited about the Robeez, but from their website DS has already outgrown them - he's headed into size 9 for this summer. I have no idea if I can find Keds in Canada, I'll have to poke around. That leaves Stride Rites, sigh, which are about $50-60 a pair here (ouch!).
MaryElizabeth, does Tom's have shoes for kids too? The website I found only had mens' and womens' shoes.
Can't say enough good thing about soft star shoes!
